Q.

How do I find low cost conveyancing?

A.

Many solicitors advertise cheap conveyancing quotes. Often extra fees are often hiding in small print. Additional fees should be reasonable and be applicable solely where the solicitor must complete work beyond standard conveyancing on your behalf, which could not be anticipated at the start of the process. A conveyancing quote should also state any disbursements to be paid.Get a quote using the Homeward Legal quote calculator for the property you are buying.

Q.

Will the Tewkesbury property lawyer do any property conveyancing searches on the Gloucestershire Victorian mid terrace bungalow I want to buy?

A.

The common conveyancing protocol will be to get these searches - Local Authority (personal or official), Drainage Search (Con29DW) and Environment Search and occasionally specific searches for instance Development reports.

Q.

How is contaminated land in Tewkesbury investigated?

A.

Several contaminants can quickly spoil property in Tewkesbury, and an environmental search should reveal whether a specific property could be affected by Tewkesbury contaminants like shallow mining or pollution incidents.

Q.

As a result of the major flooding in Sept 2012 in South West England I am concerned that flood risk searches won't be thorough enough?

A.

Property conveyancing searches handled by your conveyancing solicitor in Tewkesbury should include the far more detailed search (Landmark) if the risk is deemed significant.

You can always speak to a next door neighbour for additional confidence.

Q.

I am buying a period house in the boundary of conservation areas. Where can I uncover information in regards to the state of repair?

A.

English Heritage, a government body, maintain records of the state of repair of conservation areas in Tewkesbury and throughout England in addition to the exposure to getting worse.

Local conservation areas are nominated by the local Tewkesbury planning authority, who regulate everything from public spaces to the policing of street clutter.

Q.

I am purchasing in Tewkesbury, and would like to verify that there are many conservation areas.

A.

There are several areas of conservation in or near Tewkesbury. The advantages of these restrictions will include more aesthetically pleasant surroundings, but they create additional maintenance and repair responsibilities. Your solicitor will be able to provide more details.

Q.

We are intending to buy a restored chapel in the parish of Farmington. Should we order a chancel search?

A.

Whichever Tewkesbury parish in which you are buying, a property lawyer is likely to recommend a chancel search. Chancel repair dues can be collected on new owners of a home where parish councils have previously chosen not to do so. In the event that chancel liability may apply, your solicitor might recommend insurance rather than pulling out of the purchase.

Q.

Which Tewkesbury lenders do you work with?

A.
