Q.

How do I get the best rates for conveyancing for a 293,000 property?

A.

Numerous conveyancers claim to offer theoretically cheap conveyancing quotes, but additional fees are often hiding in the terms of engagement that unknowing home owners have not reviewed Any extra charges found in terms of engagement should be reasonable and clear and come into force only if the solicitor must perform additional tasks for you, which could not be anticipated at the start of the process. Our quotes offer a clear statement of your solicitors fees for a standard purchase or sale.

Q.

Which body is responsible for safeguarding the status of neglect Somersham conservation areas?

A.

Local Somersham conservation areas are designated by the local East Cambridgeshire planning authority, who manage the state of the area including things like poorly maintained roads, dormer windows and public spaces. English Heritage administer details in relation to the state of conservation areas in addition to the risk of the area falling into disrepair.

Q.

If I plan to buy near Somersham, in the parish of Duxford St Peter, do we need a chancel search?

Your property solicitor should confirm that a chancel search is ordered. In Somersham's much older areas, chancel repair has the potential to be imposed on new owners of a house where Parochial Church Councils (PCCs) may have not done so in the past. Even if liability is unlikely, indemnity insurance is a sensible precaution.

Q.

How frequent is gazumping?

A.

Gazumping describes when a house seller acknowledges one buyer's offer and then dismisses it in favour of a second buyer's offer. The risk of getting gazumped exists for almost any purchase. Instructing your property solicitor as soon as possible to handle your transaction should help to reduce the likelihood of gazumping.

Q.

What does my conveyancing searches on average cost?

A.

Conveyancing searches ranges in cost, depending on the searches required. Your solicitor will usually advise a pack including a mining search and a drainage search.

Q.

We have had a quote from you. Could there be any extra charges?

A.

We do not hide any hidden extra fees for sale or purchase conveyancing. Know that some solicitor do not give accurate quotes, only estimates. The bill you receive on completion can be much greater.

Q.

Which local authority is responsible for Somersham?

A.

Somersham is located in East Cambridgeshire District Council, The Grange, Nutholt Lane, Ely, Cambridgeshire, CB7 4EE, contact: 01353 665 557

Q.

A.
