Q.

We need to find a cheap solicitor for purchasing a home. What do we need to check for?

Several law firms purport to offer 'the cheapest conveyancing quotes'. Unfortunately additional charges may be added into the terms of engagement. Any disbursements ought to be listed on a The Ridgeway conveyancing quote. Our quotes clearly state all legal fees for a standard conveyancing transaction.

My partner and I are interested in purchasing in The Ridgeway, and need to know if there are any areas of conservation.

A.

These areas protect regions of architectural or historic interest. These restrictions create additional maintenance and repair responsibilities, but the benefits will include better maintained homes and gardens. Your conveyancing solicitor will advise further.

Q.

How much can my searches cost?

A.

Searches range in cost. They are disbursements paid to a third party, and will be charged at cost.

Q.

If I plan to buy near The Ridgeway, in the parish of St Pancras, do we need a chancel search?

A.

Your solicitor responsible for your move is likely to recommend that a chancel search be ordered. Through some church councils have opted to exact chancel repairs on the current owners, there is no way to be certain that a parish which has not been subject to chancel liability in the past will continue to be free from liability, so it can be difficult to use this as a guide.

Is nickel (Ni) soil contamination likely in The Ridgeway?

A.

Legislation exists to control pollution, waste, water and chemical contamination. Various bodies hold data on land contaminants affecting The Ridgeway, including local authorities.

Q.

Are Land Registry office copies fees or disbursements?

A.

Each fee and disbursement ought to be stated on a quote, without any hidden charges in the 'small print'. These costs are disbursements not fees, and is passed on to the buyer at cost.

Q.

What are The Ridgeway searches?

A.

These searches are queries ordered by the conveyancing solicitor through particular authorities, for example a chancel search. Purchasers need to be aware that, searches will only cover legal considerations.

Q.

Regarding the fact that last year was second wettest year since 1920 I am questioning whether property environmental searches may not be sufficient?

A.

A diligent The Ridgeway solicitor will suggest that you get rigorous environmental searches (Landmark database search) if the environmental searches spots a local The Ridgeway flood risk.

For added assurance you can converse with a local resident.
