Q.

How do I find a discount conveyancing quote in Wallingford?

A.

Both high-street and online law firms advertise supposedly 'the cheapest conveyancing quotes', but extra charges are frequently hidden in the terms. Extra costs needs to be fair. The quote should, in addition, define any disbursements.

Q.

What does searches cost?

A.

Conveyancing searches ranges in cost, depending on the searches chosen. They are charged 'at cost'.

Q.

If my family are buying a Wallingford apartment close to a priory built in the 1400s, will we need a chancel search?

A.

Owners of property in an area near an old church building may be required to contribute towards the cost of repairs. This is referred to as chancel repair liability. A chancel search will confirm whether liability for Wallingford properties is likely to exist. A solicitor will be able to advise as to whether a chancel search is necessary, and recommend suitable insurance. Wallingford church properties where chancel liability may apply include Brightwell St Agatha, St Leonard and St Mary le More & All Hallows.

Q.

Do fixtures and fittings include things like cupboards?

A.

There is not a legal definition of fixtures and fittings, which can result in conflict once the new owner takes possession. Completion or agreement of a fixtures and fittings form is unfortunately often left to the last minute, when a dispute may jeopordise the transaction.

Q.

What will the Wallingford conveyancing solicitor recommend if the property we hope to invest in is in a conservation are in South Oxfordshire council which appears to have inappropriate window frames installed?

A.

South Oxfordshire council enquiries carried out by a solicitor will determine if the Wallingford property a designated conservation area and any evidence of planning consent for changes to the property will be supplied.

Q.

For a lender, we have chosen Ulster Bank, what do I need to be aware of?

A.

Over the last two years, some lenders have reduced the number of firms on their approved panel, potentially creating increased conveyancing costs for property buyers. Homeward Legal can act for many lenders so that you will not be required to pay the lender's legal fees.

Q.

How is Wallingford contaminated land checked?

A.

Land could be contaminated by a range of naturally-occurring factors, and an environmental search should reveal whether a specific property is affected by contaminants like air pollution. Goulds Grove, Ewelme, OX10 6PJ is one such potential cause of local contamination.

Q.

Will we need a home buyers survey?

A.

It is recommended that most purchasers arrange a home surveyor when you intend to buy in Wallingford. A wide range of problems can negatively affect a property, which include insect infestation and ground movement.
