Q.

How do I get low cost conveyancing?

A.

Both high-street and online conveyancers purport to offer cheap conveyancing quotes. Unfortunately extra fees will be included in the solicitor's terms. Third party costs, termed disbursements, to be paid should also be included on a quote Any charges found in the terms should be fair. Homeward Legal quotes offer a clear statement of your legal fees for a standard conveyancing transaction.

Q.

I am purchasing with Barnsley Building Society - is there anything I need to know?

A.

Until recently, most solicitors could act for the majority lenders. A small number of lenders have opted to reduce the size of their 'solicitor panel'. We, however, are able to act on behalf of the vast majority of mortgage lenders, ensuring that an additional solicitor will not be required to act for your lender.

Which particular search enquiries will the conveyancing solicitor in Waterbeach conduct when carrying out the conveyancing for a Waterbeach home?

The standard procedure will be to obtain Local Authority, Drainage Search (Con29DW or personal) and Environment Search and, depending on certain criteria, specific searches such as Commons Registration Search.

Most top soils in Waterbeach have some degree of contamination, from industrial or agricultural. Environment search

results will factor contaminants, including metals and others such as perchlorate and groundwater contamination.

Will I need a chancel search? We are buying a property close by parsonage grounds in Waterbeach.

The Law Lords decision in a landmark case 10 years ago reaffirmed that 'lay rectors' of property must contribute towards church repairs. Insurance may be available to protect a buyer should a Waterbeach Parochial Church Council enforce liability. Waterbeach ecclesiastical properties include St John the Evangelist.

Q.

We need to complete this purchase as soon as possible, how can we aim for fast conveyancing?

Experienced buyers will tell you that contacting a proactive, diligent solicitor is key fast Waterbeach conveyancing. There are a number of tasks you can also do to speed up the process. These include:

  • getting your mortgage offer in place

Q.

Are there many conservation areas in Waterbeach?

A.

With over 9,000 listed areas in England, the local areas in or near Waterbeach include numerous conservation areas. The advantages of these restrictions include an increase in local property values, but they can result in the buyer inheriting liability of unauthorised changes. Your property solicitor will be able to advise further.

Q.

Are your lawyers set up to very fast completions on the conveyancing of auction properties in Waterbeach?

A.

Yes - In fact we prepare legal packs for vendors and do frequently get instructed by buyers and sellers at auction. It is important buyers at auction to choose a CQS solicitor as ahead of time as they can to allow time for a detailed review of the legal papers in advance of the auction day. After the property auction you are the lawyer will need to be fully prepared to briskly finish all of the legal work within 28 days, a requirement of standard auction conditions.
