Sleaford's nearest train station is Rauceby. It is also well served for air travel with the nearest airport at Tollerton (Nottingham City Airport) which is 29 miles away. East Midlands is the closest international airport.

Doulton Lodge Independent Anwick is the most convenient hospital for Sleaford.

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.

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.

Do we need to get a Homebuyer Report for the Sleaford home purchase?

A.

It is suggested that you book a building survey. Numerous issues have a negative impact on a property. These can include cavity wall tie failure or blocked drains, and issues such as these are not likely to be investigated as part of the conveyancing itself.

Q.

Which Sleaford lender panels are you a member of?

Homeward Legal can work with the majority of lenders listed with the Council of Mortgage Lenders. A number of mortgage specialists operate in Sleaford, like Mortgageforce, 6/Mill House/Carre St, Sleaford, NG34 7TW.

Q.

Following recent news about the extensive flooding in Sept 2012 in the East Midlands I am concerned that property conveyancing searches might not be sufficient?

A.

Environmental searches carried out by your property solicitor in Sleaford should also include a far more thorough search (Landmark) if the risk warrants it.

If you are concerned you could consider contacting a future neighbour.

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.

Should I opt for a conveyancing solicitor who works with by my estate agent?

A.

Many estate agents have arrangements with solicitors whereby they refer conveyancing work to them, however, these referrals need to be weighed up against alternatives, as some agents may 'recommend' whichever firm pays the most per referral, not the best solicitor for your needs.

Q.

Is contaminated land a problem in Sleaford?

A.

Residential property will be contaminated by several factors caused by man and by nature, such as local waste transfer sites. An environmental search can give more clarity. Brauncewell, NG34 8RL may be one source of local contamination.
