How do we find the best conveyancing rates in South Brent for a £417k residence?


Numerous solicitors promote 'the cheapest conveyancing quotes', but additional costs will be included in the terms and conditions. These terms are often ignored by excited buyers and sellers, eager to get underway. Extra costs needs to be reasonable. They be applicable solely where the lawyer is required to perform tasks outside a normal transaction on your behalf, which could not be anticipated at the start of the process.

How long will the conveyancing process require? I am purchasing a house in South Brent.


The number of weeks taken to transfer a property can vary, affected by a handful of issues which may affect the property including if a property is leasehold or freehold. With our solicitors, every sale receives communicative and proactive service, resulting in the fastest possible outcome.


As a consequence of the major flooding in Sept 2012 in South West England we are asking if property environmental searches may not be detailed enough?


Your solicitor in South Brent should also get environmental searches if the enviro search determines a local South Brent flood risk.

It may be prudent to speak to a close neighbour for some further confidence if still concerned or regional Devon flood repair expert - try Hamwell Builders, Hamiota, Avonwick, South Brent, TQ109EY Tel: 07970 186710.


How do I verify if a house is in a conservation area?

Conservation areas preserve areas designated as being of historical or architectural value. A conveyancing lawyer will discuss what specific restrictions are in place and be able to advise further for conservation areas in South Brent.


What particular conveyancing searches will a South Brent property solicitor carry out when buying a South Brent flat?


The conventional procedure is to get Local Authority, Drainage Search (Con29DW or personal), Environmental, Tin Mining Search and China Clay Search and, depending on certain criteria, specific searches for example Official Search of Whole or Part without Priority (OS3).


We are buying on a ex-industrial use land. Is the soil likely to remain contaminated by waste minerals like manganese (Mn)?


Most top soils in South Brent have some degree of contamination, from industry, agriculture and the natural environment . Also considering issues such as groundwater contamination, contaminants affecting South Brent property will be factored into an environmental search.


Do we need a chancel search? I am purchasing a flat conversion in South Brent.


In South Brent, some owners can be required to cover the cost of maintenance of a medieval church. A chancel search confirms that such a liability exists. The solicitor carrying out the legal work for your move will confirm that a chancel search is appropriate. South Brent churches where chancel liability may apply include St Petroc.


Will my South Brent conveyancing solicitor report back to me about the amount to be paid of council tax on a Band B house before exchange?


Your lawyer will consult with the council to reveal the applicable council tax band and rates, which should then be written in the report on title. The latest council tax charges for properties in South Brent are tabled on the South Hams council website. At the time of authoring (15 June 2012) rates are:
