Q.

Can you confirm your cheapest fee for a £201,000 property? I am trying to find affordable conveyancing.

A.

Numerous firms claim to offer so-called 'the cheapest conveyancing quotes', but additional charges may inflate the final invoice.

Q.

Which actual property conveyancing searches should my Underwood conveyancer get when carrying out the conveyancing for a Underwood flat?

A.

The common legal procedure is to obtain Local Authority Search, Drainage and Water Search, Environment Search and Gypsum, and specific local Underwood searches e.g. a Commons Search.

Q.

How can the property lawyer in Underwood advise on the risk of local flooding around Underwood?

A.

An essential part of the legal procedure involves the solicitor carrying out environmental searches that offer you specific information about the risk of flooding in Underwood. Furthermore, your Underwood conveyancing solicitor might possibly propose a more detailed (e.g. Homcheck) flood risk search.

Q.

We have requested a quote from you. Will there be any extra fees?

A.

No. We do not charge any hidden fees to transfer a property. Know that some solicitor do not give accurate quotes, only estimates, which they will not be bound to.

Q.

If I am purchasing in the parish of Papplewick, should we get a chancel search?

A.

Your property lawyer is likely to recommend that a chancel search is ordered, irrespective of the parish in which the building being purchased is found. In older areas of Underwood, chancel repair dues can be collected on the owners of a building where church councils have not imposed the same liability on the last owners.

Q.

Where can I go about check if the Underwood conservation area is at risk?

A.

Following a campaign, English Heritage have conducted a survey and created a detailed list in relation to the state of conservation areas as well as the vulnerability to the area falling into disrepair.

Conservation areas are set up by Ashfield who manage conservation area concerns from including things like advertising hoardings, addition of unsympathetic windows and public spaces.

Q.

The property being purchased is on a brownfield site. What should we do regarding titanium soil contamination?

A.

Most soils in Underwood have some degree of contamination, from industry and natural causes. Land may also be contaminated by other sources, including chlorine.

Q.

When do you need to instruct a conveyancing solicitor to act on our purchase?

A.

The short answer is, the earlier in the process you can instruct a solicitor, the better, as there are various tasks that can be performed immediately. Instructing a firm early for a purchase enables you can shave days off the process by having the details of your instructed solicitor ready when you make an offer, or, if you are selling a property, prior to marketing the property, documents can be prepared to make it potentially more attractive to motivated buyers.
