The closest train station to Wanborough is Hungerford, about 12 miles away and Wanborough's closest airport is Kidlington, Oxford Airport.

Swindon, Great Western is the most convenient hospital.

Q.

We need to find discount conveyancing. What are the risks?

A.

The confusion over this issue catches out many sellers and buyers, and can leave them paying far more in fees than they budgeted. Many firms purport to offer so-called cheap conveyancing, but additional charges may increase the solicitor's invoice.

Q.

Why does conveyancing need such a long time?

A.

The legal work undertaken to transfer a house or flat in Wanborough may be delayed, we, however, appreciate how disruptive they may be and work hard to reduce their cost whenever it is possible by driving the transaction forward. Reasons for delay can include problems with arranging a mortgage.

Q.

Property conveyancing searches may be fine but when one considers recent flooding e g the major flooding in Sept 2012 in South West England are they sufficient to report sufficient information about the risk of flooding in Wanborough?

A.

A good Wanborough property lawyer should always get environmental searches if the standard conveyancing searches determine a significant risk Wanborough flood risk.

For greater assurance perhaps you could speak to a neighbour.

Q.

What should I be conscious of if we acquire a Wanborough property in a Swindon planning authority conservation area ?

A.

Swindon local authority Requisition for search and Official Certificate of Search conducted by your solicitor will determine the existence of suitable consent for any modifications to the property.

Q.

Do we need to be concerned about gazumping?

A.

Gazumping describes when a seller agrees to an offer, only to dismiss it, opting for a greater offer. There is almost always a risk of gazumping. The first step in reducing the chance that gazumping will effect you is to instruct your conveyancing solicitor as early as possible.

Q.

My husband and I are buying in Wanborough. How do I confirm that the property is in a designated conservation area?

A.

These areas distinguish neighbourhoods designated as being of special architectural or historic interest. You may wish to contact the local council for more detail, but your conveyancing solicitor will investigate the impact of conservation areas or other planning restrictions.

Q.

Will we need a chancel search if I am intending to purchase in the parish of Barford St Martin, near Wanborough?

A.

Whether you are buying a house in Wanborough or elsewhere in the county, the conveyancing lawyer should confirm that a chancel search is ordered. In Wanborough's much older areas, chancel repair dues can be collected on owners of a house where Parochial Church Councils may have not done so in the past. In the event that chancel liability may apply, your solicitor might recommend insurance rather than pulling out of the purchase.

Q.

How do I uncover additional information about the conservation areas in Wanborough?

A.

Local conservation areas, such as trees, satellite dishes or street clutter are police by the local authority (Swindon). Following a campaign, English Heritage now maintain records on the state of repair of conservation areas in addition to the exposure to a worsening of the condition of the area.
