Q.

How do I get the best rates for conveyancing in Southwold for a £419,000 home?

A.

The confusion over what is, and is not, included in a 'cheap' quote leaves many buyers paying out more than they anticipated in the end, and many law firms promote theoretically 'the cheapest conveyancing'. However additional costs are often hiding in small print, left unread by preoccupied buyers Third party costs, termed disbursements, to be paid ought to be listed on the quote Extra costs needs to be fair and reasonable. They come into force only if your conveyancer must perform additional tasks , which could not be anticipated at the start of the process. Based on the property you intend to buy, our online quote calculator will generate an accurate statement of conveyancing fees.

Q.

Which local authority looks after Southwold?

A.

Q.

Do I need to get a chancel search? I am purchasing a Southwold home close by a rectory built in the 16th Century.

A.

There are thousands of ecclesiastical parishes in the UK. Owners of property within some of these may be required to subsidise the repair of a local church. As a consequence of a recent Act, interest over any affected land must be registered by October 2013. This will make it easier to identify affected property through a chancel search. Southwold church properties include St Edmund, King & Martyr.

Q.

Do I need to use a conveyancing referred by our local agent?

A.

Your agent will often refer a solicitor. These referrals must be compared with other local solicitors, or better-value firms found online, as some agents may 'recommend' the firm which pays to the largest referral fee, not the most suitable for you.

Q.

I am intending to buy in Southwold. How can we check if the house is in a conservation area?

A.

Conservation areas define neighbourhoods of architectural or historic interest. The local council will be able to advise further about local conservation areas, and the conveyancing lawyer handling your purchase address the impact buying in a conservation area may have.

Q.

I have read about the Met Office warning of more intense rainfall we are wondering whether flood risk searches won't be thorough enough?

A.

Food risk searches carried out by the lawyer in Southwold should also include a more in depth search (Landmark) if it is felt necessary.

If you are worried you might try to contact a neighbour or local resident.
