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.

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.

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 you need searches for chancel liability if we are buying a apartment near a glebe in Saffron Walden?

A.

The outcome of a court case between a parish council and owners of neighbouring farmland liable for church repairs confirmed that chancel repair liability could be enforced.

Following a change in the law, interest over any affected land in Saffron Walden must be registered by October 2013. This will make it easier to identify affected property through a chancel search. Saffron Walden ecclesiastical properties which may give rise to chancel liability include Little Sampford St Mary the Virgin, Radwinter St Mary the Virgin, Great Sampford St Michael and St Mary the Virgin.

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.

What searches should my conveyancer in Saffron Walden carry out when acting on a Saffron Walden flat?

A.

The routine legal procedure is to get Local Authority, Drainage Search (Con29DW) and Environment Search and, depending on certain criteria, specific local searches, which may include a Official Search of whole without priority.

Q.

In a few weeks I am anticipating to be finally moving from our period building in Saffron Walden into our new property in Rayleigh , what is the right point to book a removal company?

A.

Our recommendation is for buyers to put off booking the removals until such time as all parties have decided a formal date that regularly occurs once contracts are signed. Local firms include Pretlove's Removal & Storage Service, London Rd, Great Chesterford, Saffron Walden, CB10 1NY Call: 01223 414040 or Pretlove's Removal & Storage Ltd, Station Approach London Rd, Great Chesterford, Saffron Walden, CB10 1NY Telephone: 01799 530893.

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.
