Q.

How do we get the cheapest conveyancing solicitors?

A.

The lack of clarity surrounding this topic catches out many buyers and sellers, and can leave them paying far more in fees than they budgeted. Many conveyancers claim to offer supposedly cheap conveyancing quotes. Often additional costs will be included in the solicitor's terms of engagement. Third party costs, termed disbursements, to be paid must also be stated on your conveyancing quote

Q.

We are intending to buy a converted property in a Sleaford conservation area. Where can I find data in regards to the standard of upkeep?

A.

Conservation areas are created by North Kesteven who maintain conservation area concerns from street furniture to the deterrence of ugly shop fronts. English Heritage, a government body, have assembled details in relation to the state of repair of conservation areas in addition to the risk of deterioration.

Q.

We are going to a property auction and will would like organise a fast purchase, what can we do to speed up the transaction?

A.

As is widely reported, faster conveyancing is key is to use a proactive, diligent conveyancing solicitor. Additionally, there are numerous tasks you, as the buyer, could do. These include:

  • keeping in regular contact with your conveyancing solicitor
  • promptly answering your conveyancing solicitor's questions (by email if possible)
  • getting your mortgage offer in place

Q.

I am planning to buy with UCB Home Loans - is there anything we need to be aware of?

A.

When organising a mortgage, legal work must be undertaken in relation to the mortgage. House buyers should be aware that, in some cases, lenders are now limiting the firms who can act for them, resulting in increased conveyancing costs for house purchasers if the lender insists upon their own preferred solicitor . We, though, will act for most lenders to ensure that you will not need to pay legal costs to your lender's solicitor.

Q.

What will our conveyancing searches cost?

A.

The cost of searches can vary, and will be dependent on your lender's requirements. Searches are disbursements paid to a third party, and are not included in your solicitor's fees.

Q.

It seems that cadmium soil contamination may be an issue in Sleaford. Please advise.

A.

Restrictions exist to control soil contamination, but some will remain in the environment for decades. Data on many contaminants, such as water contaminants such as pesticides and polychlorinated biphenyl (PCBs), will be included in an environmental search.
