Q.

I need to find the cheapest conveyancing quote, we are on a tight budget.

A.

The confusion over this issue catches out many homeowners, and can leave them paying far more in fees than they budgeted, and many property lawyers claim to offer theoretically cheap conveyancing, but additional charges are often hiding in the terms and conditions which unwary homeowners fail to check. Extra costs included in the solicitor's terms ought to be fair. They only apply to matters if your solicitor is required to complete extra work in your interest, which could not be anticipated at the start of the process. The conveyancing quote ought to define costs to be paid to third parties, such as the local authority, (disbursments).Our quotes clearly state all legal fees for a standard conveyancing transaction.

Q.

What factors help with arranging fast conveyancing?

A.

As is widely reported, faster conveyancing is key is to use a experienced lawyer. There are numerous things you can do to speed up your conveyancing. These include:

  • clarifying your mortgage lender's requirements
  • encouraging your lawyer to carry out searches promptly
  • answering any queries raised by your lawyer as soon as possible

Q.

How many weeks will the conveyancing process usually need, in your experience? The property is also local.

A.

On average, the number of weeks taken to transfer residential property varies. This is dependent on a number of concerns such as when a third party is slow to respond. For most firms in England and Wales, the average is between 8 to 12 weeks, but we aim to complete the process within six weeks.

Q.

What specific searches will the conveyancer in Whimple apply for when acting on a Whimple property?

A.

The common procedure is to obtain Local Authority (personal or official), Drainage Search (Con29DW or personal), Environment Search, Tin Search and Clay Search and perhaps less common searches e.g. a Land charge Searches.

Q.

Which local authority looks after Whimple?

A.

Whimple is located in East Devon District Council, Council Offices, Knowle, Sidmouth, Devon, EX10 8HL, Call: 01395 516 556

Q.

What are Whimple's 'conveyancing searches'?

A.

Searches are a collection of queries raised by the buyer's conveyancer through particular organisations. Conveyancing searches are very informative, but will only cover the legal aspects of the purchase.

Q.

Do I need to get a home buyers survey?

A.

It is strongly suggested that home buyers in Whimple arrange a RICS survey. Buyers should be aware that there are a range of issues that can negatively affect a property. These include cracked roof tiles and insect infestation. Such issues will not be considered during the conveyancing work itself.

Q.

We are buying a unique building in a designated Whimple conservation area, how do we find information in relation to the present standard of repair of the area?

A.

Following a campaign, English Heritage have conducted a survey and created information about the state of repair of conservation areas in addition to the risk of standards slipping. Conservation areas in Whimple are specified by the local authority (East Devon) who are responsible for things like whether trees can be cut down to ugly shop fronts.
