The Swaffham residence being bought is on a ex-industrial use land. Could the soil be contaminated by industrial waste like selenium?

Q.

Should the house's fixtures and fittings include things like the fridge?

Q.

Is it important to get searches for chancel liability? I am buying a property in Swaffham.

A.

Where land in Swaffham was once owned by a lay-rector, new owners of that property may be obliged to subsidise upkeep of older church buildings. Liability has the potential to impact the value of a Swaffham property, but an indemnity policy may be available to protect the new owners. A conveyancing lawyer will be able to advise further. Swaffham ecclesiastical properties include St Peter & St Paul.

Q.

I ideally need to exchange contracts on the selling of my leasehold apartment very quickly, are you really fast solicitors in Swaffham ?

A.

Generally Swaffham conveyancing lawyers can be too apathetic which brings huge uncertainty to the property selling process.

Homeward Legal only ever allocate you to conveyancing solicitors who attempt to communicate through the whole of the buyer and seller property chain .

Additionally , our panel of conveyancing solicitors are actually chosen because they employ the best productivity systems to push through the sale of your property fast.

Q.

The property seller has unfortunately fitted incongruous dormer windows to the maisonette in Swaffham which may exclude conservation area guidelines

A.

Your conveyancing solicitor will make enquiries to establish if the property is within a designated conservation area and whether any modifications have the appropriate consent from the Breckland council. In the event that no local authority consents be supplied your conveyancing solicitor will give you professional advice on the best alternative for example purchasing an indemnity policy or seeking retrospective consent from the council.

Q.

Is preparation of statutory declarations paid to the solicitor?

A.

A good quote will list all fees and disbursements. This cost is a fee not a disbursement, and will normally be included in a conveyancing quote.
