Q.

How do I get the best conveyancing rates for a £218k property?

A.

Many firms claim to offer cheap conveyancing quotes. Often additional charges will be included in the solicitor's terms. Additional costs included in terms and conditions should be reasonable.

Q.

Is there anything we are supposed to do to make our Shenley conveyancing faster?

A.

As is often reported, contacting a proactive, diligent conveyancer is the key to faster conveyancing. When selecting a conveyancer, you should ask yourself the following: Do they use email as the preferred mode of communication? Do they offer 'no move, no fee' protection? This can incentivise a faster transaction. Do they offer 'instant' online quotes?

Q.

How can we protect ourselves from getting gazumped?

A.

The custom of deciding to reject a previously accepted offer after a second buyer has made a better offer is called gazumping. There is almost always a chance of gazumping. You should instruct an efficient solicitor early, and even before acceptance of an offer to reduce the chance of gazumping.

Q.

If we are purchasing a Shenley flat conversion on the same road as a church constructed in the 14th Century, do I need to get a chancel search?

A.

Property owners near to church property in the locality must contribute towards repairs, where chancel repair liability exists. Owners who have bought property prior to 2003 may be totally unaware that a liability exists if a chancel search was not carried out. A solicitor will be able to advise as to whether a chancel search is necessary, and recommend suitable insurance. Shenley churches include St Martin.

Q.

Which local authority looks after Shenley?

A.

Shenley is located in South Northamptonshire Council, Springfields, Towcester, Northants, NN12 6AE, Call: 08452 300 230

Q.

What factors will contaminate land in Shenley, and should they be a concern?

A.

A broad range of contaminants could impact residential property in Shenley, and factors including potentially contaminative use of nearby land and sand or gravel pits should be reported on during conveyancing searches. Moor Mill Landfill Site, Moor Mill Lane, Hertfordshire, AL2 3TZ is one such potential source of local contamination.

Q.

I am intending to purchase a church rectory in the parish of Buckland. Is a chancel search required?

A.

Your lawyer may suggest that a chancel search is taken out, regardless of the parish in which the property being purchased is located. Through some Parochial Church Councils have exercised their right to exact chancel repairs on the owners of affected property, a solicitor cannot state with certainty that a parish which has not imposed liability will not automatically be the case for future owners. For property in the parish of Buckland, it is not safe to rely on the historical behaviour of the parish council alone as a guide.

Q.

How long may conveyancing usually take, according to your estimates? The house being transacted is also in the area.

A.

For the majority of property purchasers, the time taken to transact a property will vary. This is based on potentially many considerations, for example, whether the property being bought or sold is leasehold. With our solicitors, the matter receives fast and efficient service.
