Q.

Do all cheap conveyancing quotes have extra fees? We are looking for a low cost conveyancing quote in Tadcaster.

A.

Many solicitors offer theoretically cheap conveyancing quotes. Often extra costs can inflate the final bill. Any extra fees found in terms and conditions should be fair and clearly defined and be applicable solely where the conveyancer is required to complete extra work in your interest, which could not be anticipated at the start of the process.

Q.

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

A.

Most importantly, contacting a proactive property lawyer is essential to a fast completion. There are a number of things you can do, including, responding to your property lawyer by phone, fax or email wherever possible, clarifying your mortgage lender's requirements and calling or emailing the property lawyer, and chase them if you suspect any delays.

A.

Conservation areas in Tadcaster are designated by the local authority (Selby) who administer conservation area concerns from the historic layout of roads to the stoppage of ugly highway signs.

Following a campaign, English Heritage have conducted a survey and created a list on the state of conservation areas in addition to the risk of the area falling into disrepair.

Q.

What can a Tadcaster conveyancing solicitor do if the property I am planning to buy is situated in a conservation area and has ugly doors installed?

A.

Your property solicitor will make enquiries to identify if the property is affected by a designated conservation area and whether any alterations have appropriate consents from the Selby authority.

If no appropriate permissions be in evidence your solicitor will recommend the best alternative such as obtaining an indemnity insurance or obtaining retrospective approval from the appropriate local authority.
