Q.

We need to find a discount conveyancing estimate in Windsor, we are on a tight budget.

A.

Both high-street and online firms purport to offer so-called 'the cheapest conveyancing quotes'. Unfortunately extra charges will be included in small print that unknowing buyers and sellers have not reviewed Costs ought to be reasonable and come into force only if your conveyancer is required to complete unexpected extra work , which could not be anticipated at the start of the process. We provide quotes, not estimates, and clearly state the fees for a standard conveyancing.

Q.

Is your panel of solicitors set up to 28 day completions on property auction conveyancing in Windsor?

A.

Yes - We are property auction specialists and commonly act for buyers at auction. Our panel of solicitors and licensed conveyancers have previously acted for countless bidders at local residential property auctions that, amongst others, include Acuitus, Allsop (Commercial), Allsop (Residential), Auction House London, Award Property, Barnett Ross, Baxtons, Brendons Auctioneers, Countrywide Property Auctions and Drivers Norris.

Experienced buyers at auction always formally appoint a SRA regulated lawyer asap for a detailed review of the legal documents before the auction day arrives. Q.

Our agent has put forward the conveyancing solicitor. Will it be more cost-effective to use them?
>

Agent recommendations are a not uncommon route to find a solicitor, however, these referrals need to be weighed up against alternatives, including online or local firms, as the agent may recommend the firm which pays to the largest referral fee, not the best solicitor for your needs.

Q.

Which streets of Windsor are protected by a conservation area?

A.

There are a range of areas of conservation in or near Windsor. Conservation areas in Windsor include Beenhams Heath. These restrictions may impose liability on a buyer for unauthorised alterations made by previous owners, but the benefits will include preservation of an area's historic charm. Your lawyer will advise further.

Q.

I am intending to buy a church rectory in Brightwell. Will a chancel search be compulsory?

A.

The conveyancing lawyer might recommend a chancel search, irrespective of the parish where the house being bought is located. In Windsor's much older areas, chancel repair may be imposed on the owners of a house where parish councils may have spared previous owners or tenants.

Q.

If Windsor land is found to be contaminated, can we have the topsoil easily remedied?

A.

In Windsor, remediation is possible is some cases, though expensive. Windsor's local authority will generally be responsible. Speak to a local service provider like Avon Crop Amenity Products Ltd, Unit 2 Millside Pk/Crouch La, Winkfield, Windsor, SL4 4PX for more insight.

Q.

In a few months we are hoping to move out of our detached building on the outskirts of Windsor to a house in Slough . When to appoint a removal company?

The best advice is for buyers to wait before booking a removal firm until you and the other side has decided the completion date that takes place following shortly after when contracts have exchanged.
