Teignmouth's nearest station is Teignmouth and the nearest airport to Teignmouth is Exeter International Airport.

Teignmouth hospital is relatively close to Teignmouth.

Q.

I am looking for a firm that offers cheap conveyancing in Teignmouth. Will we get a quote or and estimate?

A.

The confusion over what is, and is not, included in a 'cheap' quote leaves many property buyers and sellers paying out more than they anticipated in the end, and many law firms advertise supposedly cheap conveyancing. Unfortunately extra charges are often hiding in the terms of engagement.

Q.

My husband and I are buying in Teignmouth. Can we check if the residence is in a conservation area?

A.

Areas considered to be of historical merit, like stretches of canals, may be designated as conservation areas. These restrictions create additional maintenance and repair responsibilities, but the benefits include better maintained homes and gardens. Your solicitor will advise further.

Q.

Flood searches are fine but considering recent weather changes such as the extensive flooding in Sept 2012 in South West England are they actually good enough to verify sufficient information about the Teignmouth area flood risk?

A.

Environmental searches applied for by a Teignmouth lawyer will include a far more specialist flood search if it is felt necessary.

You can converse with a neighbour of the property to gain further comfort or nearby Devon flood repair expert e.g. Rivercoombe Building Co Ltd, 5 Grandison Av, Bishopsteignton, Teignmouth, TQ149SP Tel: 01626 447134.

Q.

What makes sale conveyancing legal work to take such a long time?

A.

The legal work needed to sell or purchase a property can suffer setbacks. We aim to curtail the consequences of these delays whenever it is possible by using fast search providers.

Q.

It seems that aluminium (Al) soil contamination may be an issue in Teignmouth. Please advise.

A.

Teignmouth industry and natural causes can cause soil contamination. Metal contamination of soil in Teignmouth is more likely to occur near disused factories or waste management sites. Data on other contaminants, like groundwater contaminants like bleach, will also be included in an environmental search.

Q.

Will you need searches for chancel liability? I am purchasing by a parson's close in Teignmouth.

A.

Property owners in an area near a church in the area may be required to fund repairs. This is referred to as chancel repair liability. Several sources are used to determine liability in Teignmouth, including parish archives. Churches in Teignmouth include St James and St Michael the Archangel.

Q.

Does the conveyancing solicitor in Teignmouth report back to me about the cost of council tax for a Band D house before exchanging contracts?

A.

Your solicitor will contact the council to discover the appropriate council tax rates, which will then be added to the conveyancer's title report. The latest tax charges for homes in Teignmouth are tabled on the Teignbridge local authority website. At the time of writing (11 June 2012) rates are:

What can a Teignmouth property solicitor do if the home we want to buy is in a local authority conservation area and has unsuitable dormer windows installed?
