Q.

How do we find the best rates for conveyancing in Saffron Walden for a £345k property?

A.

Numerous firms advertise cheap conveyancing quotes. Often extra costs may inflate your final bill. Extra charges should be clearly defined. Homeward Legal quotes offer a clear statement of your legal fees for a standard conveyancing transaction.

Q.

Which Saffron Walden mortgage lender panels are you on?

A.

We can work with all the major lenders serving Saffron Walden homebuyers. Saffron Walden lenders and mortgage specialists include JLM Mortgage Services Ltd, Brook Cottage/Middle St, Clavering, Saffron Walden, CB11 4QL.

Q.

I am buying a 1930s maisonette in the boundary of Saffron Walden conservation area, how do I lay my hands on information on the standard of upkeep?

A.

Local Saffron Walden conservation areas are designated by South Cambridgeshire who police everything from the historic layout of roads to the obstruction of plastic box signs.

English Heritage, a government body, have conducted a survey and created a detailed list of the condition of conservation areas as well as the vulnerability to a decline in standards.

Q.

What can contaminate land in Saffron Walden, and will they be properly investigated?

A.

A wide range of contaminants caused by naturally-occurring factors may reduce the value of land in Saffron Walden, such as brine works and masts or pylons. An environmental search can provide much more clarity. Contamination in Saffron Walden can be caused by local waste sites, such as Great Chesterford Landfill, Chalk Pit, Essex, CB10 1PL.

Q.

As a consequence of the Met Office projecting more intense rainfall in the future we are thinking that conveyancing searches (environmental) won't be exacting enough?

A.

Flood searches applied for by your solicitor in Saffron Walden should also include a more specialist search (Landmark) if it is felt necessary.

If you are nervous why not approach a next door neighbour or local Essex flood repair builder - like Hurst B & Son Ltd, 14 Coploe Rd, Ickleton, Saffron Walden, CB10 1ST Tel: 01799 530139.

Q.

Will the residential property's fixtures and fittings form list things like door handles?

A.

Mainly, fixtures are fixed to floors, walls and ceilings, whereas fixtures are free-standing items, such as kitchen units. To avoid misunderstandings, a fixtures and fittings form should be agreed and will clarify precisely what is to be included.

Q.

Our local agent has suggested a law firm who they generally use. Do I need to use this solicitor?

A.

Your agent will usually suggest a solicitor. However, if the agent is paid a fee by the solicitor, the agent may prefer to suggest the solicitor willing to pay the highest referral fee, not the most suitable for you.

Q.

Do I need a building survey?

A.

We firmly recommend that most Saffron Walden buyers book a house survey if buying in Saffron Walden. It is a fact that there are a wide range of concerns which affect a property, which include failed double glazing, and these will not be addressed by your conveyancing solicitor.
