Silverstone's nearest airport is Turweston Aerodrome Airport (5 miles). Kidlington Airport is 22 miles away and Silverstone's nearest train station is Northampton.

Brackley is the most convenient hospital.

Q.

How do we get a discount conveyancing quote?

A.

Several solicitors offer supposedly cheap conveyancing, but extra fees are often hiding in the terms of engagement which homeowners may have not read carefully The Homeward Legal quote calculator will confirm the solicitors' fees, based on the property you are buying.

Q.

Will I need a home buyers survey for our home purchase?

A.

Homeward Legal suggest that most Silverstone buyers arrange a RICS surveyor to undertake a survey. It is a fact that there are many defects that can negatively affect a property, which a conveyancing solicitor will not report on, which include rotten roof timbers.

Q.

If we plan to buy near Silverstone, in the parish of Weedon Lois, do we need a chancel search?

A.

Your conveyancer could recommend a chancel search, whichever parish in which the home being purchased is found. Although some Parochial Church Councils have decided to charge chancel repairs on the current owners of affected property, a solicitor cannot state with certainty that a parish where dues have not recently been paid will continue to be free from liability, so it can be difficult to use this as a guide.

Q.

How much can my searches be?

With a Homeward Legal solicitor, clients are required to pay at most £249 for Silverstone searches. These searches are paid out to a 3rd party.

Q.

Silverstone conveyancers order some property if instructed by a home purchaser, but which particular ones?

A.

When you are applying for a mortgage, your lender will expect the following for properties in Silverstone: Local Authority, Drainage and Water Search (CON29DW or personal) and Environment Search,, and possibly specific searches, which may include a Commons Registration Search.

Q.

Do many conservation areas in Silverstone have the potential to affect us?

A.

With around 9,000 conservation areas throughout the country, the neighbourhoods in or near Silverstone will include several areas of historical merit designated as protected. You may wish to contact the council if you have specific questions, but your lawyer will investigate the impact of conservation areas or other planning restrictions.

Q.

Which body is obliged for monitoring the status of repair of the conservation areas in Silverstone?

A.

English Heritage now maintain a list of the state of conservation areas along with the risk of deterioration or improvement.

Conservation areas in Silverstone like what can be developed, coloured road surfaces or poorly maintained pavements are dealt with by the local authority (South Northamptonshire).

Q.

As a result of the widespread flooding in Sept 2012 in the East Midlands, I am wondering whether environmental searches won't be sufficient?

A.

Your conveyancing solicitor in Silverstone will advise you to include environmental searches if the enviro search flags up a the local Silverstone flood risk

Why not get in touch with a neighbour or local resident for that further information.
