Q.

We are looking for fixed rate conveyancing. as we are on a budget.

A.

Several solicitors advertise supposedly cheap conveyancing quotes. However extra costs can increase your final invoice. Any additional costs included in the terms needs to be fair and clearly defined. Our online calculator will create an accurate quote for your buy.

Q.

It seems that aluminium soil contamination may be an issue in Sonning Common. Please advise.

A.

Some metal contamination may have occurred throughout Sonning Common, but contaminated land areas are labelled as such if the danger to the environment is judged to be too great. Land may also be contaminated by other sources, including food-processing waste.

Q.

We are purchasing in Sonning Common, and would like to find out if there are many areas of conservation.

A.

Locales deemed to be of architectural merit, such as mining villages, will be registered as areas of conservation. These restrictions adds to upkeep costs, but the benefits will include better maintained homes and gardens.

Q.

How can I stop gazumping?

A.

This takes place when a house seller agrees to an offer and then dismisses it in favour of a higher offer. The risk of gazumping exists for almost any purchase. Instructing your conveyancing solicitor as early as possible should help to mitigate this risk.

Q.

How much time should conveyancing need, on average? If it matters, we are purchasing a house in Sonning Common.

A.

The number of weeks needed to transfer a property is not wholly predictable. This is dependent on a handful of concerns including when a third party is slow to respond. With Homeward Legal, each client receives communicative and proactive service, resulting in the fastest possible outcome.

Q.

I am intending to purchase a restored chapel in Hungerford. Will a chancel search be specified?

A.

A solicitor is likely to recommend a chancel search, regardless of the parish where the home being bought is found. Through some Parochial Church Councils have determined to charge chancel repairs on the current owners of lay rectorships, it is not possible to be certain that a parish where chancel repair fees have not been paid previously will continue to be free from liability. In the event that chancel liability may apply, your solicitor might recommend insurance rather than pulling out of the purchase.

Q.

What individual search enquiries should a Sonning Common property lawyer conduct for a Sonning Common home?

A.

Standard conveyancing protocol is to obtain Local Authority (personal or official), Drainage Search and Environment Search and occasionally less common searches for example Contaminated Land.
