Q.

Noted Stony Stratford interest

A.

New Bradwell Bucks Windmill, Furtho St Bartholomew Churches Conservation Trust and Ark Wildlife Hospital Animal Sanctuary are in Stony Stratford.

The closest hospital is Saxon Clinic, Milton Keynes.

Q.

How do I find low cost conveyancing in Stony Stratford?

A.

Both high-street and online solicitors promote so-called cheap conveyancing, but extra fees are frequently hidden in small print. A quote for conveyancing in Stony Stratford should also state the disbursements to be paid.Our quotes offer a clear statement of your solicitors fees for a standard purchase or sale.

Q.

Is simultaneous exchange and completion a disbursement or fee?

A.

A quote will itemise disbursements and fees, clearly stating which is which. This cost is a fee not a disbursement. It should be included in a quote.

Q.

Flood searches are ascertained from past records but when one considers recent events e g the fact that last year was second wettest year since on record are they comfort enough to report sufficient information about the Stony Stratford flood risk area?

A.

Flood risk searches conducted by a Stony Stratford conveyancing solicitor should also include a more informative flood search if required.

If you remain still worried you might consider contacting a close neighbour.

Q.

We are buying a 1940s maisonette in a conservation area in Stony Stratford, where does one uncover details relating to the state of upkeep of the area?

A.

Conservation areas are created by the local Milton Keynes planning authority, who police conservation area concerns from what can be developed to the blockage of plastic box signs. English Heritage, a government body, have put together details in relation to the condition (poor to good) of conservation areas in Stony Stratford and across England as well as the risk of the area falling into disrepair.

Q.

Are we advised to get a chancel search if I am intending to buy in the parish of Cublington?

A.

Whether you are buying a property in Stony Stratford or elsewhere in the county, the property solicitor is likely to recommend that a chancel search be ordered. In older areas of Stony Stratford, chancel repair dues can be collected on new owners of a property where church councils may have not done so in the past. It is not safe to rely on the historical behaviour of the parish council alone as a guide.

Q.

Prudential Banking will be our lender, is there anything I need to consider?

A.

Buyers should know that, in some cases, lenders are now reducing the size of their 'solicitor panel'. This can mean increased legal costs for property purchasers. We, though, can act for many mortgage lenders to ensure that you will not need to pay your lender's conveyancing fees.

Q.

We are buying on a Stony Stratford brownfield land. Can the soil still be contaminated?

A.

Soil contamination by industrial waste, including metals, will have occurred in parts of Stony Stratford. Various bodies hold data on land contaminants affecting Stony Stratford, including local authorities.

Q.

Do we need to employ a firm of solicitors suggested by our estate agent?

A.

Both agents and mortgage brokers will push a law firm to handle your conveyancing. If the agent is paid a referral fee, however, some agents choose the conveyancer who pays out the highest referral fee, not the best solicitor for your needs.
