Q.

How do we get a discount conveyancing quote?

A.

Several firms offer cheap conveyancing. However extra fees are frequently hidden in small print. Homeward Legal quotes are not estimates, and offer a clear statement of your legal fees for a standard conveyancing transaction.

Q.

We are intending to purchase a medieval barn conversion in Norwich St Mary in the Marsh. Do we need a chancel search?

A.

Regardless of the Walsingham parish in which you are buying, the lawyer may suggest that a chancel search be taken out. In Walsingham's much older areas, chancel repair may be apportioned on the current owners of a property where Parochial Church Councils may have not done so in the past. Even if liability is unlikely, indemnity insurance is a sensible precaution.

Q.

The home being purchased is on a brownfield site. Could the topsoil be contaminated by industrial waste?

A.

Extensive measures are taken on a local and national level to rectify soil contamination. Environment search results will factor contaminants, including metals and others such as insecticides and groundwater contaminants like silage.

Q.

What can a Walsingham conveyancing lawyer recommend if the house is located in a conservation area in North Norfolk planning authority which appears to have unsanctioned new windows installed?

A.

The local authority search (LLC1 - Requisition for search and Official Certificate of Search) carried out by your Walsingham conveyancing

solicitor in the process of the conveyancing will confirm if the property is inside a designated conservation area proof of planning authority consent for modifications will be supplied. In the absence of any the necessary permissions, your Walsingham conveyancing solicitor will give you professional advice on the best alternatives, which include obtaining from the appropriate local authority or buying an indemnity insurance policy.

Q.

Do you have low cost solicitors that have a lot of experience at the conveyancing for auction properties in Walsingham?

A.

Our firm do frequently act for buyers and sellers at auction. We typically encourage buyers to choose an affordable lawyer prior to the actual auction to give enough time for a thorough investigation of the sellers legal pack.

Subsequently, immediately after the property auction a prepared lawyer will be able to concentrate on get through all of the legal work in less than 28 days after exchange of contracts as required by the terms and conditions of sale.

Q.

What does fee for conveyancing searches come to?

A.

With a Homeward Legal conveyancing solicitor, clients are charged at most £249 for a standard bundle of searches.

Q.

Will my conveyancing solicitor in Walsingham inform me about the cost of council tax on a Band B property before exchanging contracts?

A.

The conveyancer will contact the council to find out the appropriate council tax charges which should then be included in the report on title. Correct rates for homes in Walsingham are set out online at the North Norfolk council site. At the time of writing, 25 July 2012, the rates are:
