Q.

I am trying to find a fixed rate conveyancing estimate. How do we get a quote?

A.

Various firms claim to offer supposedly 'the cheapest conveyancing quotes', but additional charges are frequently hidden in the terms that property buyers and sellers often do not check. Get a quote using the Homeward Legal quote calculator for the property you are buying.

Q.

Is tin (Sn) identified in Shenfield top-soil?

A.

Restrictions exist to curtail soil contamination, but some existing contaminants can reside for decades after exposure. Land may also be contaminated by other sources, including organohalides.

Q.

Will we need a chancel search if we are buying in the parish of Wendon Lofts, near Shenfield?

A.

A property solicitor might recommend that a chancel search be ordered, irrespective of the parish where the house being bought is found. Although some church councils have taken the decision to exact chancel repairs on new owners of land subject to chancel liability,

it is not possible to be certain that a parish where dues have not recently been paid will continue to be free from liability. It is not safe to rely on the historical behaviour of the parish council alone as a guide.

Q.

How can I protect against getting gazumped?

A.

Gazumping arises when a owner acknowledges an offer and then dismisses it, opting for another buyer's offer. Because acceptance of an offer is not binding on the seller until exchange of contracts, there is a danger of being gazumped. The first step in reducing the chance that gazumping will effect you is to instruct a law firm early.

Q.

I intend to sell our jointly owned property in a local property auction, will you use fast solicitors in Shenfield ?

A.

Generally solicitors are extremely slow adding additional anguish to the house conveyancing process.

Our approach is different - we always use the very latest fast response systems . Critically , we give you a conveyancing solicitor prepared to communicate through the whole of the property chain .

Q.

How much will my conveyancing searches on average cost?

A.

Conveyancing searches in Shenfield ranges in cost. Your solicitor will usually advise a pack including a chancel liability search and a drainage search.

Q.

Which body has overall responsibility for keeping order in the condition of repair of the conservation areas in Shenfield?

A.

English Heritage have assembled records of the state of repair of conservation areas in Essex and throughout England in addition to the risk of getting worse.
