Q.

We are trying to find affordable conveyancing in Rendlesham. What should we check?

A.

Many firms purport to offer 'the cheapest conveyancing'. Unfortunately additional charges may be added into the solicitor's terms of engagement. Additional fees should be reasonable. They only come into force where your solicitor must perform additional tasks , which could not be anticipated at the start of the process. We offer quotes, not estimates, and clearly state all legal fees you pay for a standard conveyancing transaction.

Q.

Does 'fixtures and fittings' include things like fixed towel rail?

A.

There is not a strict definition of fixtures and fittings, resulting in considerable confusion once the buyer moves in and some items are missing. This is frequently disregarded, hence the importance of a complete fixtures and fittings form, agreed by both parties.

Q.

If my family are buying a home by a church built in the 17th Century in Rendlesham, will I need a chancel search?

A.

The Law Lords decision in a court case between a parish council and owners of neighbouring farmland liable for church repairs reaffirmed that 'lay rectors' of property must contribute towards the cost of church repairs. Liability has the potential to impact the value of a property, but insurance is available should an obligation to fund repairs be enforced. Ecclesiastical properties in Rendlesham include St Felix of Dunwich and St Gregory the Great.

Q.

When in the process is it wise to arrange a solicitor to handle our sale?

A.

If you choose a firm with 'no move, no fee' protection, instructing as soon as possible is wise, as the legal work can begin immediately. Some sources advocate holding off instruction until a chain is completed, but delays can risk the other side pulling out, particularly in uncertain market conditions.

Q.

What will the Rendlesham conveyancing lawyer advise if the home I hope to buy is inside the boundary of a Suffolk Coastal planning authority conservation area that may have unseemly PVC windows fitted to it?

A.
