Q.

On the purchase of a £98,000 house, what will be the fees? We need to find an affordable conveyancing quote.

A.

Various conveyancers offer cheap conveyancing quotes, but extra costs will be included in the terms. Based on the property you intend to buy, our online quote calculator will generate an accurate statement of conveyancing fees.

Q.

What is gazumping?

A.

This occurs when the 1st buyer's offer is accepted, and then rejected, by the property seller, selecting instead a better offer. Because acceptance of an offer is not binding on the seller until exchange of contracts, there is a risk of being gazumped. Consider instructing a law firm as early as possible to reduce the chance of your offer being gazumped.

Q.

How can I go about ascertain if the Thame conservation area we are buying in is being neglected?

A.

Conservation areas in Thame are designated by the local authority (South Oxfordshire) who are responsible for conservation area concerns from including things like street posts, the colours of paint used and the upkeep of public spaces. English Heritage, a government body, have conducted a survey and created details about the condition of conservation areas as well as the risk of deterioration.

Q.

Thame property solicitors order varied property conveyancing searches when instructed to act for a property buyer, which actual searches?

A.

If purchasing and applying for a mortgage the lender mandates at least the following for properties in Thame: Local Authority (personal or official), Drainage and Water Search (CON29DW or personal) and Environment Search, and, depending on certain criteria, unique particular for example Land charges full Search.

Q.

If we are intending to buy near Thame, in the parish of Oxford St John the Baptist, do we need a chancel search?

A.

Your Thame conveyancing solicitor may suggest a chancel search, regardless of the parish where the residence being bought is located. In Thame's much older areas, chancel repair may be imposed on current owners of a residence where parish councils have previously chosen not to do so. For property in the parish of Oxford St John the Baptist, it is not safe to rely on the historical behaviour of the parish council alone as a guide.

Q.

Do we need to employ a firm of solicitors who frequently works with by my estate agent in Winterton?

A.

Estate agent recommendations are a commonplace path whereby buyers get a solicitor, however, such referrals should be considered carefully, as it may be the case that the agent recommends the solicitor willing to pay the highest referral fee, not the most suitable for you.

Q.

What amount of time may the legal work to buy property need, according to your estimates? I am purchasing residential property in Thame.

A.

For the majority of home movers, the length of time taken to transact a home can vary, based on a broad set of issues which may affect the property including if there is a mortgage. Homeward Legal ensure your transaction is undertaken with the utmost care and speed.

Q.

Can mercury (Hg) contaminate Thame soil?

A.

Thame's local area has a history of contamination from agriculture or industry, like much of the UK. Metal contamination of soil in Thame is more likely to occur near landfill sites. Data on other contaminants, like water contaminants such as silage and hazardous gases, will also be included in an environmental search.
