Rickmansworth area information

A.

The closest hospital for Rickmansworth is Bishops Wood.

Q.

How do we find a discount conveyancing quote?

A.

Many online and high street solicitors advertise supposedly 'the cheapest conveyancing quotes', but extra costs are often hiding in the terms and conditions which unwary homeowners fail to check. Extra costs included in the solicitor's terms should be fair. Homeward Legal quotes are not estimates, and offer a clear statement of your legal fees for a standard conveyancing transaction.

Q.

Which government body looks after for logging the state of repair of conservation areas in Rickmansworth?

A.

English Heritage maintain a list of the condition of conservation areas in England as well as the risk of deterioration. Local conservation areas are designated by Three Rivers who oversee everything from including things like street clutter, removal of existing windows and whether trees can be cut down.

Q.

When you are purchasing a Rickmansworth home next to a church, do you recommend that I get a chancel search?

A.

The Law Lords decision in Aston Cantlow (PCC) v Wallbank confirmed that chancel repair liability could be enforced. A chancel search will confirm whether

liability for Rickmansworth properties is likely to exist. A conveyancing solicitor will be able to advise further. Rickmansworth Church of England properties where a chancel search may be appropriate include St Mary the Virgin.

Q.

If Rickmansworth contaminated property is found in an environmental search, can we have the topsoil cost-effectively remedied?

A.

Remediation of contaminated land in Rickmansworth may be possible, though expensive. Rickmansworth's local authority will generally be responsible. Contact a local service provider e.g. Rances Turf & Soil Supplies, Unit 1 The Old Quarry Springwell Lane, Rickmansworth, WD3 8UX for further information.

Q.

How early is it appropriate to arrange a conveyancing solicitor to handle our purchase?

A.

With a 'no move, no fee' guarantee, earlier is preferable. The legal work can then commence very early in the process. Instructing a conveyancing firm early for a sale may mean that information, especially from slow third-parties, can be requested even prior to accepting an offer, whereas if you are buying you will the details of your Rickmansworth solicitor ready when you make an offer.

Q.

Our lender will be Northern Rock, what will we need to know?

A.

Some lenders have limited the number of solicitors who can act for them. Homeward Legal will act for many lenders so that you will not be required to pay your lender's conveyancing fees.

Q.

The purchase is completing next October, what should be calculated for Stamp Duty Land Tax?

A.

Stamp Duty will depend on the home's value. On a £898000 residential property, stamp duty will be £35920 (accurate March 2013).

Q.

I am hoping to be finally moving from our terraced property in Rickmansworth into our new property in Croxley Green when to appoint a removals firm?

A.

The most sensible course of action is for buyers to hold off a removal firm until such time as everyone has firmed up a formal date which occurs once contracts have exchanged. There are many local and national companies including S R S Removals, 3 Orchard Way, Mill End, Rickmansworth, WD3 8HZ Call: 01923 896156 or Ricky Vans, 15 Basing Rd, Rickmansworth, WD3 8QH Telephone: 07908 317939.
