Q.

What are the best rates for conveyancing for a £373,000 property?

A.

Many online and high street law firms promote so-called 'the cheapest conveyancing', however additional fees can inflate the final bill. The conveyancing quote should also clearly state any disbursements to be paid. Any charges needs to be fair. Our quotes offer a clear statement of your solicitors fees for a standard purchase or sale.

Q.

Should we get a building survey for our property purchase in Seaton?

A.

It is recommended that home buyers order a survey. It is a fact that there are a wide range of concerns which affect a property, that will not be addressed during the conveyancing process, such as blocked drains or cracks in walls.

Q.

Will we need a chancel search if I am intending to buy in the parish of Monkokehampton, near Seaton?

A.

A lawyer might recommend a chancel search, regardless of the parish where the residence being bought is located. In older areas of Seaton, chancel repair can be imposed on new owners of a residence where Parochial Church Councils (PCCs) may have spared previous owners or tenants. It is not safe to rely on the historical behaviour of the parish council alone as a guide.

Q.

Do I need to get a chancel search if my family are buying in Seaton?

A.

Where land in Seaton was once owned by a lay-rector, new owners of that property may be obliged to fund maintenance of nearby church land. Terms used in a property's name, like 'glebe', may indicate chancel liability. The solicitor acting on your behalf will confirm that a chancel search is appropriate. Ecclesiastical properties in Seaton where chancel liability may apply include All Hallows, St Gregory and St Paul.

Q.

What causes the conveyancing work to have so many delays?

A.

The legal work required to buy or sell property could take more time than budgeted, we, however, understand how frustrating these are and aim to minimise the burden of these delays by using fast search providers.

Q.

Is a Professional Indemnity fee a disbursement or fee?

A.

All fees and disbursements ought to be clearly identified on a quote for your conveyancing, with no additional charges of any kind in the terms and conditions. This cost, for example, is a fee not a disbursement, and will generally be included in the quote for your conveyancing.

Q.

How can a Seaton property lawyer report on the risk of local flooding in the Seaton area?

A.

The solicitor will conduct official property conveyancing searches that will include Seaton flood risk area data. Additionally a Seaton conveyancing solicitor might possibly recommend a more detailed (e.g. Homcheck) specialist local Seaton flood risk search.

Q.

We are buying on a Seaton former industrial site. Could the top-soil be contaminated by industrial waste?

A.

There are extensive regulations in place to curtail soil contamination. Land may also be contaminated by other sources, including radioactive waste.
