Q.

We need an affordable conveyancing quote. Will I get a quote or and estimate?

A.

Various firms purport to offer theoretically cheap conveyancing quotes, however additional costs are often hiding in small print which unwary sellers and buyers fail to check. Costslisted in the small print ought to be fair and be applicable if your solicitor is required to complete extra work in your interest, which could not be anticipated at the start of the process.

Q.

Does a conveyancer in Stamford order any conveyancing searches on the Lincolnshire Fifties end-of-terrace flat I am intending to purchase?

A.

If buying and taking out a mortgage the building society of bank expects a solicitor to get at least specific searches, including the following Local Authority (council), Drainage Search (Con29DW) and Environmental, and, depending on certain criteria, less common searches such as Chancel check Search.

Q.

I am purchasing a Victorian terraced house. Should we have searches carried out?

A.

Conveyancing searches are an accepted set of enquiries ordered on behalf of the party intending to buy the property, such as an environmental search. These searches deal with issues and defects relating to the property's legal title.

Q.

Are we advised to get a chancel search if I am buying in the parish of Weston?

Your property lawyer may suggest a chancel search, whichever parish where the home being bought is located. Through some Parochial Church Councils (PCCs) have taken the decision to charge chancel repairs on the current owners, a conveyancing solicitor cannot verify that a parish which has not been subject to chancel liability in the past will continue to be free from liability. For property in the parish of Weston, it is not safe to rely on the historical behaviour of the parish council alone as a guide.

Q.

What makes Stamford property legal work for a purchase to take so long? Isn't it a simple matter of filing paperwork?

A.

Conveyancing will occasionally be held up even in ideal circumstances. Some reasons are out of the solicitor's hands. We know how distracting such delays can be and seek to reduce the effect of these delays whenever possible.

Q.

How look for check if the Stamford conservation area is in a poor state?

A.

English Heritage, a government body, administer information in relation to the state of repair of conservation areas along with the vulnerability to deterioration or improvement. Conservation areas in Stamford are created by the local authority (South Kesteven) who preside over conservation area concerns from including things like poorly maintained pavements, dormer windows and street furniture.

Q.

The estate agent we are using in Buntingford has named a conveyancing whom they usually use. Will it be easier to use this firm?

A.

An agent will be able to influence a conveyancing firm they refer a large number of clients to, and can therefore exert pressure on a slow solicitor to work faster. However, if the agent is paid a fee by the solicitor, an agent may choose the solicitor willing to pay the highest referral fee, not the law firm with the best reputation.

Q.

Is contaminated land a concern in Stamford?

A.

Land in Stamford could be contaminated by many human activities, and an environmental search will confirm that a property is affected by contaminants in the area like proposed erection of mobile masts and limestone or gypsum quarrying. Contamination can be caused by local landfill sites, including Collyweston Quarry Extension, Collyweston, Northants, PE9 3QA.
