Wanborough is roughly 1.4 miles off the M4 junction entry 15 Eastbound.

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.


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


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.


How is Wanborough contaminated land investigated when purchasing a property?


Wanborough property would be contaminated by numerous environmental factors, and an environmental search should clarify to what extent a house is impacted by contaminants in the region such as local historic industrial processes and proximity to scrap yards. Land/premises At, Old Park Farm, Wiltshire, SN4 7BPcould be a local cause of land contamination in Wanborough.


Why does conveyancing need such a long time?


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.


Do we need to get searches for chancel liability? I am buying in Wanborough.


Chancel repair liability can require some home owners to cover the cost of maintenance of a local church. Insurance may be available to protect a buyer should a Wanborough Parochial Church Council enforce liability. Church properties in this area where a chancel search may be necessary include St Andrew and St Bartholomew.


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 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.


What type of checks as respects the risk of floods in the Wiltshire region will my Wanborough conveyancing solicitor actually apply for a Sixties maisonette we are purchasing?


A qualified property conveyancing lawyer will apply for official environmental searches that incorporate Wanborough flood risk data. An inexpensive (around twenty pounds) and more thorough search (most likely a Landmark Database search) might be suggested by the lawyer in Wanborough if the results of the initial searches identify a potential flood risk to the Sixties maisonette. The most recent (03/01/13) indications at the UK Environment Agency do not reveal any active flood warnings in Wanborough.


The web is full of a number of publications about doing your own legal work e.g. How to Buy Your First Home (And How to Sell it Too). Do I need to spend money on a Wanborough property solicitor for my home move?


There is no argument why a home seller cannot carry out the legal work without conveyancing solicitor in Wanborough.

However, a property solicitor carries out a significant number of actions including stock transfer forms or ensuring listed building alterations are compliant many of which need a skilled professional. Above all else DIY lawyers are taking risks without appropriate indemnity cover which all solicitors practices must have.


For a fast completion on the purchase of a £700,000 property, what do we need to ensure?


Contacting a proactive and experienced property lawyer is the key to fast conveyancing. Consider the following:

  • Which communication methods do they use? Days can be wasted waiting for letters in the post which could be emailed or faxed.
  • Was there a delay delivering a quote?
  • Will they order searches immediately?
