Q.

How do I get low cost conveyancing?

A.

Lack of clarity over this topic catches out many buyers and sellers, and can leave them paying far more in fees than they budgeted. Many property lawyers purport to offer supposedly 'the cheapest conveyancing', but additional charges may be added into the solicitor's terms of engagement which buyers and sellers may have not read carefully Your conveyancing quote should also state costs to be paid to third parties, including search providers, (disbursements). Extra costs needs to be fair and reasonable and be applicable if your conveyancer must complete unanticipated additional work , which could not be anticipated at the start of the process.

Q.

I am interested in purchasing in Rufford, and would like to find out whether there are many conservation areas.

A.

With over eight thousand conservation areas throughout the country, the neighbourhoods located near Rufford include several areas of historical merit defined as protected. Your lawyer will provide more details and discuss the relevant responsibilities you would be taking on by purchasing in a conservation area.

Q.

How is contaminated land in Rufford investigated?

A.

A wide range of contaminants can reduce the value of land in Rufford, and factors such as infilled land will be reported on in environmental search results.

Q.

We are buying in Rufford on a new-build brownfield site. Is the top-soil possibly contaminated?

A.

Restrictions exist to stop future topsoil contamination, decades after exposure the effect of some contaminants can be felt. Environment search results will factor contaminants, including metals and others such as groundwater contamination.

Q.

How long can the legal work to purchase property need?

A.

The number of weeks needed to transfer a residence varies, according to a broad set of considerations. These may include if you plan to take out a mortgage. Homeward Legal solicitors work hard to ensure every sale is undertaken with the utmost care and speed.

Q.

Do I need a chancel search? I am purchasing a house on the same street as a church in Rufford.

A.

There are over 15,000 parishes throughout England and Wales. Owners of property within some of these may be required to subsidise the repair of a local church. Owners who have bought property prior to 2003 may be totally unaware that a liability exists if a chancel search was not carried out. The solicitor handling your conveyancing will confirm that a chancel search is appropriate.

Q.

Our estate agent has offered a conveyancing. Will it be more cost-effective to use them?

A.

Many agents will have a referral arrangement with solicitors whereby they refer work to them. However, if they are paid a referral fee, some agents may 'recommend' the firm which pays to the largest referral fee, not the best value for you.

Q.

When do we need to instruct a conveyancing solicitor in Rufford?

A.

Simply, instructing as soon as possible is wise, as the legal work can start very early in the process. Instructing your solicitor earlier can reduce any chance of the sale or purchase aborting.
