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.

We are intending to buy a 1930s property in a designated Teignmouth conservation area. How do I uncover more details relating to the standard of repair?

A.

Local conservation areas are designated by the local authority (Teignbridge) who manage everything from public spaces to the thwarting of plastic box signs.

English Heritage, a government body, have assembled a detailed list about the state of repair of conservation areas along with the risk of a worsening of the condition of the area.

Q.

How early should I get a solicitor?

A.

In the vast majority of cases, the earlier, the better. The legal work can then start very early in the process. Promptly instructing a solicitor for a sale means that paperwork can be prepared, even before a buyer is found, whereas if you are buying you will the details of your Teignmouth solicitor ready when you make an offer.

Q.

ING Direct is going to be our mortgage lender, is there anything I need to know?

A.

Buyers need to be aware that some lenders have opted to reduce the size of their 'solicitor panel', potentially creating higher legal costs for purchasers. We are able to act on behalf of all large lenders so that you will not be required to pay the lender's costs.

Q.

Which individual search enquiries should my Teignmouth property solicitor conduct for a Teignmouth building?

A.

The standard conveyancing protocol is to get these searches - Local Authority (council), Drainage and Water Search (CON29DW or personal), Environmental, Tin Search and Clay Search and perhaps less common searches for instance HS2 Search.

Q.

What kind of local authority searches regarding the potential risk of local flooding in Devon will my lawyer in Teignmouth do?

A.

A necessary component in the legal due diligence procedure of buying a property involves your lawyer conducting environmental searches that set out certain details on the subject of risk of flooding in Teignmouth. A substantially more flood history/risk search, such as the Homecheck search, may be suggested by your property solicitor in Teignmouth if the results of the initial conveyancing searches suggest a potential flood risk to the property.

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.

What factors can contaminate land in Teignmouth, and will they be thoroughly investigated?

A.

A range of contaminants can impair property, like military land and local waste transfer sites. An environmental search should offer more information.
