Q.

We need an affordable Stowmarket conveyancing estimate. What should we check?

A.

Confusion over this issue catches out many buyers and sellers, and can leave them paying far more in fees than they budgeted, and many law firms advertise so-called cheap conveyancing. Often extra fees are frequently hidden in the solicitor's terms. This small print is often not read by buyers and sellers in a hurry. Any disbursements to be paid must also be stated on the quote Any extra fees found in the small print should be fair and come into force only if the solicitor must perform additional tasks on your behalf, which could not be anticipated at the start of the process. Our quotes are not estimates, stating all the solicitors fees you will pay for a standard sale or purchase.

Q.

If I am purchasing on the same street as priory grounds in Stowmarket, will we need to get a search for chancel liability?

A.

The Law Lords decision in a landmark case 10 years ago reaffirmed that 'lay impropriators' of property must contribute towards the cost of church repairs. Parochial Church Councils in Stowmarket must register their interest over property by October 2013, simplifying the chancel search process. Stowmarket ecclesiastical properties where chancel liability may apply include St Peter & St Mary.

Q.

Property solicitors in Stowmarket order varied property if acting for a home purchase client - which specific ones?

A.

If applying for a mortgage lender insist that at least specific searches, including the following Local Authority (council), Drainage Search (Con29DW or personal) and Environmental, and perhaps specific local Stowmarket searches, which may include a Contaminated Land.

Q.

Is it viable to carry out the conveyancing myself on our own.

A.

It is certainly possible to handle the legal process unaided. That said, a conveyancing solicitor typically handles a long list of exercises ranging from applying for and interpreting office copies or handling retentions most of which

need experience. Nonetheless solicitors firms are obligated to pay for appropriate professional indemnity insurance in order to protect you from any carelessness.

Q.

In about 6 weeks we are going to be finally moving from our terraced property on the outskirts of Stowmarket into our next flat in Saxmundham , what is the best point to select a removals firm?

A.

Most lawyers tend to suggest that house movers put off until formal exchange of contracts because a moving date will not have been confirmed.

Why not try Local Rentals, Charringtons Yard/Stowupland Street, Stowmarket, IP14 1EQ Telephone: 01449 770022 or Greens Removals Ltd, Tomo Ind Est/Creeting Rd, Stowmarket, IP14 5AY on 01284 703811.

Q.

Environmental searches are standard procedure but when one considers recent weather changes such as the statistics that 1 4m people are at risk coastal or river flooding are they the best way to determine enough about the ever changing Stowmarket flood risk?

A.

A diligent Stowmarket conveyancing solicitor should also get rigorous conveyancing and environmental searches if the first search identifies a Stowmarket flood risk.

You could also speak to a next door neighbour for that further comfort or local Suffolk flood repair expert - such as: Penfold K F, Bridge Cottage/Haughley New St, Haughley, Stowmarket, IP14 3JN Tel: 01359 241404.

Q.

Is there anything we are supposed to do to make our Stowmarket conveyancing faster?

A.

Crucial to a fast conveyancing transaction is to use a proactive, diligent conveyancing solicitor. When finding a suitable a conveyancing solicitor, : Do they offer 'no move, no fee' protection? This can incentivise a faster transaction. Do they offer 'instant' online quotes? What methods of communication do they use? Posting documents can adds days of waiting to a purchase.
