Q.

How do I get the best rates for conveyancing for a £346,000 residence?

A.

Many online and high street firms promote theoretically cheap conveyancing quotes. Unfortunately additional charges are often hiding in the terms of engagement which unwary buyers fail to check. Homeward Legal quotes offer a clear statement of your legal fees for a standard conveyancing transaction.

Q.

We are buying on a Radford brownfield site. Is uranium (U) topsoil contamination likely?

A.

Though the dangers are usually minor, if significant harm could be caused to people or protected species by the contamination, it is likely to be labelled contaminated land. Other sources of contaminated land include groundwater contamination and chlorinated solvents.

Q.

What will the Radford property lawyer advise if the house is within a Nottingham council conservation area and turns out to have unfitting dormer windows added?

A.

Nottingham council LLC1 searches conducted by your Radford property lawyer during the legal process will confirm if the Radford property a conservation area and evidence of authorisation for additions to the property will be requested.

Q.

What particular property searches will the Radford property solicitor get for a Radford property?

A.

Normal legal protocol will be to get the following Local Authority (personal or official), Drainage Search, Environment Search and Gypsum Mining and occasionally particular searches, like Index Map Search.

Q.

How many weeks can conveyancing legal work need? I am purchasing a property in Radford.

A.

For the majority of buyers and sellers, the length of time taken to transfer a home varies. This wide range results from a range of legal considerations which may include if a property is leasehold or freehold. Our conveyancers ensure the matter is handled as fast as possible, without compromising on service.

Q.

What is the best point to one make arrangements with the home removal company?

A.

Best advice is for home movers to delay agreeing a removal van until such time as you and the other side has confirmed an absolute completion date that generally happens after contracts are signed. Local information can be sought from U Fill Ltd, Unit 8 9 Genesis Pk/Midland Way, Nottingham, NG7 3EF Phone: 0800 052 6226 or All Moves UK Ltd, Unit 1 Lewis Industrial Estate Radford Rd, Nottingham, NG7 7NQ Tel: 0115 978 1549.

Q.

What are Radford's property searches?

A.

Searches are a commonly-used set of enquiries carried out for the buyer. These will not give information on the physical condition of the property.

Q.

Will I need to get a chancel search if I am buying next to a church constructed in the 1500s in Radford?

A.

As a result of chancel repair liability, the owners of property in Radford which was once owned by a 'lay rectors' can be liable for upkeep of an old church building. After the passing of an Act in 2002, interest over any affected land in Radford must be registered by October 2013. This will make it easier to identify affected property through a chancel search. Church properties in the local area where a chancel search may be appropriate include All Souls, St Peter Old and St. Nicholas.
