Q.

How do we get the best conveyancing rates for a £635k residence?

A.

The confusion over what is, and is not, included in a 'cheap' quote leaves many buyers paying out more than they anticipated in the end, and many firms offer supposedly 'the cheapest conveyancing quotes'. However extra fees may be added into the small print which buyers may have not read carefully A conveyancing quote should also state third party costs, termed disbursements, to be paid.The online quote calculator can generate an accurate statement of the legal fees for the property you plan to buy.

Q.

As a result of the flooding in Sept 2012 in South West England I am worried that flood risk searches aren't thorough enough?

A.

Environmental searches conducted by your conveyancing solicitor in Tintagel should also include a more informative flood search if the risk warrants it.

Why not get in touch with a local resident for more confidence.

Q.

We are purchasing a property in Pillaton. Is a chancel search required?

A.

The solicitor may suggest that a chancel search be ordered, whichever parish where the home being bought is found. Through some Parochial Church Councils have determined to exact chancel repairs on the current owners of lay rectorships, there is no way to be certain that a parish where repair costs have not been paid before will continue to be free from liability, so the solicitor will be unable to make any guarantees, and will recommend insurance.

Q.

Which particular searches will my solicitor in Tintagel get when instructed on a Tintagel property?

A.

The common procedure is to obtain the following Local Authority (council), Drainage Search (Con29DW), Environmental, Tin Mining Search and China Clay Search as well as any specific local Tintagel searches for example HS7.

Q.

Bookshops now have an increasing number manuals about do it yourself conveyancing e.g. Bradshaw's Guide to Diy House Buying Selling and Conveyancing. That being the case, do I want to use a property solicitor in Tintagel for my move?

A.

Should you want to have a go you can definitely complete the bulk of the legal work without external help from a proficient Tintagel property solicitor. In reality however, a solicitor takes care of a huge array of skilled tasks such as chasing completion statements or identifying conservation area breaches which need a skilled professional.

Essentially do it yourself conveyancers are not covered by the applicable insurance cover that all legal practices must have.
