In reference to the 2011 national census the population of Torquay 281,404 spread over an area of 285,696 acres (115,617 hectares) which equals a residential population density 1.0 people per acre (2.4 per hectare).

Torquay train station is approximately a mile from Torquay. Torquay's closest airport is Exeter International Airport.

Q.

Torquay points of interest

A.

Berry Head Lighthouse, Kirkham House English Heritage and Berry Pomeroy Castle English Heritage are easily accessible from Torquay.

The closest hospital is Mount Stuart Torquay.

Q.

Can you confirm your cheapest fee for a £596,000 house? I am looking for a low cost conveyancing quote in Torquay.

A.

Numerous law firms advertise cheap conveyancing. Often additional costs are often hiding in small print, left unread by preoccupied property buyers and sellers Based on the property you intend to buy, our online quote calculator will generate an accurate statement of conveyancing fees.

Q.

How long may conveyancing to purchase property require? I need a fast service.

A.

Generally speaking, the number of weeks required to transact residential property is not wholly predictable, with reference to several factors which may include where a party does not quickly respond an enquiry. Our conveyancing solicitors work hard to ensure your move is undertaken with the utmost care and speed.

Q.

We really need to complete on the legal process our refurbished leasehold flat quickly, are you fast Torquay conveyancers ?

A.

On the whole house buying and selling law firms are far too slow which usually adds huge amounts of uncertainty to the property selling process.

Our SRA regulated solicitors approach is different as we have invested in the latest IT and land registry integrated systems . More importantly , we allocate you a conveyancing property lawyer incentivised to exert pressure from the start to the end of the buyer and seller chain .

Q.

Do I need to get a property survey?

A.

The Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors recommend that the majority of purchasers in Torquay instruct a RICS surveyor to undertake a survey. Buyers should be aware that there are a range of concerns that have a negative impact on a property, which include unsafe chimney circulation or corrosion of pipework, and these will not be addressed by your conveyancing solicitor.

Q.

The property seller looks to have fitted windows which we think might infringe Torre Tormohun conservation area guidelines.

A.

A solicitor will verify if the property is within a conservation area, and if so, whether any modifications have the requisite permission from the local planning authority.Should no appropriate consents can be provided, your solicitor will give you professional advice on all options like buying an indemnity insurance or seeking retrospective approval from Torbay council.

Q.

The internet has a multitude of guidebooks on the subject of DIY conveyancing e.g. A Practical Approach to Conveyancing by Robert Abbey and Mark Richards . Do we necessarily have to use Torquay property lawyer ?

A.

Theoretically there are no reasons at all why a seller should not undertake the bulk of the legal work without assistance. In reality however, a solicitor juggles a huge array of actions ranging from liaising with the insolvency office for k15 entries and the Land Registry formalities many of which require experience. In addition legal practices are required by the SRA to be in possession of the correct indemnity insurance to protect you from any failures.

Q.

The property being purchased is on a brownfield site. Could the top-soil be contaminated by industrial waste?

A.

Measures are taken on a local and national level to identify and remediate soil contamination. Data on many contaminants, such as trichloroethylene, will be included in an environmental search.

Q.

Which environmental factors can contaminate land in Torquay, and will they be properly investigated?

A.

Several contaminants caused by natural causes and human activities may impair residential property in Torquay . Contaminants including local historic industrial processes should be reported on during conveyancing searches.
