Q.

I need to find a cheap solicitor quote for selling a property. and what is included?

A.

Lack of clarity over this matter affects many sellers who opted for a very cheap quote, only to be stung later in the conveyancing process, and many solicitors advertise theoretically cheap conveyancing, but extra costs may be added into the terms and conditions. Excited sellers, eager to get underway, often ignore this small print when they instruct. Any extra charges which are listed in the terms should be fair. They only apply in cases where your lawyer must perform additional tasks , which could not be anticipated at the start of the process. Any disbursements ought to be defined on a Tetbury conveyancing quote. We provide quotes, not estimates, and clearly state the fees for a standard conveyancing.

Q.

How can the conveyancer in Tetbury report back on the risk of local flooding around Tetbury?

A.

A critical step in the legal due diligence procedure involves your solicitor making an application for environmental searches that give some details regarding Tetbury flood risk area. A more detailed Gloucestershire database search (most likely a Landmark Database search) may be advocated by your conveyancing solicitor in Tetbury if the results of the initial searches indicate flood risk to the property.

Q.

May the conveyancing conceal any additional fees?

A.

No. Homeward Legal never hide any hidden extra charges for any reason. Some websites offer unrealistically low 'quotes' which are in fact estimates. You may face a much greater total fee when you have completed.

Q.

How much would the fees for our conveyancing searches total?

A.

The cost of conveyancing searches can vary considerably. They are disbursements, and will be charged at cost.

Q.

The web is full of a plethora of useful articles giving details on by passing the solicitor. Do I therefore have to use lawyer in Tetbury ?

A.

If you are so inclined have a go you can do the bulk of the legal process without formally instructing Tetbury lawyer. Needless to say solicitors would argue that this is a dangerous method as have a go conveyancers don't have the correct insurance cover which qualified legal practices are duty bound to take out.

Q.

We plan to purchase a home in the parish of Henbury. Should we get a chancel search?

A.

The property lawyer could advise that a chancel search is ordered, whichever parish where the property being bought is located. Through some church councils have exercised their right to impose chancel repairs on new owners, there is no way to be certain that a parish where chancel repair fees have not been paid previously will not automatically be the case for future owners. In the event that chancel liability may apply, your solicitor might recommend insurance rather than pulling out of the purchase.

Q.

Where do I go about check if the conservation area we are buying in is in a poor state?

A.

English Heritage, a government body, now maintain details of the state of repair of conservation areas in Tetbury and across England in addition to the vulnerability to getting worse.

Local conservation areas are specified by Cotswold who manage conservation area concerns from including things like poorly maintained public spaces, dormer windows and public spaces.

Q.

The property being purchased is on a ex-industrial site. Is the soil likely to be contaminated?

A.

Tetbury and the surrounding region has a legacy of chemical contamination. Metal contamination of topsoil in Tetbury is more likely to occur near ex-industrial or waste handling sites. Data on other contaminants, like disinfection by-products, will also be included in an environmental search.
