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.

Which local authority is responsible for Rendlesham?

A.

Q.

Conveyancers in Rendlesham apply for official conveyancing searches when they are instructed to act for a property buyer, which specific searches?

A.

When you are getting a mortgage the mortgage lender insist that at least the following Local Authority Search, Drainage Search (Con29DW) and Environmental, and, depending on certain criteria, specific searches for example Commons Search.

Q.

What will our conveyancing searches usually cost?

A.

The cost of searches for a property in Rendlesham somewhat varies, depending on the particular searches ordered. Searches are paid to a third party, and will not be included in the quoted conveyancing fees.

Q.

How long should the legal work to transfer a home take, in your experience? We are selling in Rendlesham.

A.

The time needed to buy or sell a home will vary. This is dependent on a handful of issues which may affect the property, for example, whether either party has a mortgage. With Homeward Legal, the matter receives fast and efficient service.

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.

Suffolk Coastal local authority Requisition for search and Official Certificate of Search conducted by the solicitor during the legal process should check the existence of suitable council approval for any modifications to the building.

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.

Would it be practical to do the legal conveyancing process ourselves.

A.

Legally speaking there is absolutely no argument at all why a home buyer cant apply this approach and conduct bulk of the legal and technical work without assistance.

However, a conveyancing solicitor typically handles a large number of actions such as chasing lender for comments on issues raised or ensuring listed building alterations are compliant which need training.
