Can you confirm your cheapest fee for a £140k property? We need to find discount conveyancing.

The lack of clarity surrounding this matter catches out many buyers and sellers, and can leave them paying far more in conveyancing fees than they budgeted. Many conveyancers promote cheap conveyancing quotes, however additional fees are often hiding in the terms that unknowing buyers and sellers have not reviewed The quote should also state applicable disbursements.Get a quote using the Homeward Legal quote calculator for the property you are buying.

Q.

What does 'gazumping' mean?

A.

Gazumping is not uncommon in St Neots and happens when a property owner approves an offer and later refuses it. Instead, they then go for another buyer's higher offer. Although being gazumped is less common in a declining market, there will always be a risk. The first step in reducing the chance that gazumping will effect you is to instruct a property solicitor early.

Which environmental factors can contaminate land in St Neots. Will they be properly investigated?

Q.

I am expecting to be moving from our terraced house near St Neots into our new flat in March when to appoint a home removal company?

The most sensible course of action is for buyers to avoid instructing a removal firm until you and the other side has scheduled the final moving date that frequently takes place once contracts have exchanged.

What will the St Neots property solicitor do when the maisonette we hope to purchase is situated in a local authority conservation area and has unsuitable windows installed?

A.

The local authority enquiries carried out by your solicitor during the conveyancing process will establish whether the property is in a conservation area proof of permission for changes to the property will be required. In the event that no local authority consents be available, your St Neots conveyancer will give you professional advice on the alternatives which can include taking out an indemnity policy or requesting retrospective consent from Huntingdonshire planning authority.

Should I get a St Neots house surveyor to check for defects affecting this house purchase?
