Q.

How do we identify a genuinely cheap fee? We need a low cost conveyancing quote in Rushden.

A.

Numerous law firms claim to offer cheap conveyancing. However extra costs are often hiding in the terms and conditions. These terms are often ignored by excited homeowners, eager to get underway. The conveyancing quote should also clearly state the disbursements to be paid. Additional charges found in your solicitor's terms needs to be fair. Our quotes clearly state the solicitors' fees for a standard conveyancing transaction.

Q.

When buying a sixties maisonette in the boundary of conservation area in Rushden, how do we find information on the state of repair of the Rushden conservation area?

A.

Conservation areas are set up by the local East Northamptonshire planning authority, who regulate everything from area development to the prevention of advertising hoardings. English Heritage, a government body, have conducted a survey and created records in relation to the state of repair of conservation areas along with the risk of deterioration.

Q.

How many mortgage lenders in Rushden do you work with?

A.

Most lenders in Rushden are on our solicitors' panels.

The solicitor managing the legal work for your move can carry out any relevant lender-imposed searches or checks.

Q.

Flood searches are compiled from past data but when one considers current events such as the flooding in Sept 2012 in the East Midlands, are they sufficient to determine sufficient information about the evolving risk of flooding in Rushden?

A.

Environmental searches conducted by your conveyancing solicitor in Rushden will also include the far more rigorous Landmark flood search if required.

If you remain nervous you might consider contacting a neighbour of the property or nearby Northamptonshire flood repair expert try Martex, 55 Avenue Rd, Rushden, NN10 0SH Tel: 07860 810214.

Q.

Can Rushden brownfield land topsoil still be contaminated?

A.

Given the region's industrial and agricultural history in parts of Rushden, soil contamination is unavoidable. Other sources of contaminated land include asbestos.

Q.

Our local agent has referred the property lawyer. Will it be cheaper to use this solicitor?

A.

Estate agent recommendations are a common practice route to find a solicitor, however, these referrals should be compared to other online or local firms, as it may be the case that the agent recommends the solicitor willing to pay the highest referral fee, not a firm with local expertise and a solid reputation.

Q.

How can a Rushden solicitor report back on the risk and history of local flooding to properties in Rushden?

A.

An essential component in the legal due diligence procedure involves a conveyancing lawyer conducting environmental searches that give you detail in relation to risk of flooding in Rushden. An inexpensive thorough conveyancing search, for instance the Landmark search, may possibly be recommended by your Rushden solicitor if in the event that the initial conveyancing searches highlight flood risk to the property.

Q.

Rushden conveyancing solicitors conduct varied conveyancing searches if acting for a property buyer - which particular ones?

A.

When you are applying for a mortgage lender requires you to at least the following Local Authority Search, Drainage and Water Search (CON29DW) and Environment Search and occasionally area-specific searches for example Planning.
