The nearest train station to Wisbech is March. The closest airport to Wisbech is Cambridge City Airport.

The neighbouring hospital for Wisbech is North Cambridgeshire Wisbech.

Q.

We need to find a fixed rate conveyancing estimate in Wisbech. What do we need to check for?

A.

Many law firms offer so-called cheap conveyancing, but extra charges are frequently hidden in the terms and conditions that homeowners often do not check. Costs which are listed in terms of engagement should be fair and reasonable. Our quotes are not estimates, stating all the solicitors fees you will pay for a standard sale or purchase.

Q.

Can Wisbech ex-industrial use land soil still be contaminated?

A.

Wisbech industry and natural causes can cause soil contamination. Environment search results will factor contaminants, including metals and others such as herbicides and groundwater contamination.

Q.

Are there many conservation areas in Wisbech?

A.

Conservation areas qualify areas of architectural or historic interest. A solicitor will discuss the relevant responsibilities and provide more details for conservation areas in Wisbech.

Q.

Could we be gazumped?

A.

Unfortunately, gazumping is widespread both in Wisbech, and across Cambridgeshire and arises when a property seller accepts one purchaser's offer, only to refuse it in favour of a greater offer.

There is almost always a danger of being gazumped. Consider instructing a conveyancing solicitor as soon as possible to reduce the chance of your offer being gazumped.

Q.

Is it necessary that I get a chancel search? I am buying a Wisbech maisonette near church grounds.

A.

The Law Lords decision in a landmark case 10 years ago reaffirmed that 'lay rectors' of property must cover the cost of church repairs. As a consequence of a recent Act, interest over any affected land in Wisbech must be registered by October 2013. This will make it easier to identify affected property through a chancel search. Wisbech Church of England properties which may give rise to chancel liability include All Saints Church, St Augustine, St Mary and St Peter & St Paul.

Q.

In what ways can the conveyancing solicitor in Wisbech investigate the risk of possible flooding to properties in Wisbech?

A.

An essential step in the conveyancing procedure involved in buying a home involves a conveyancing lawyer carrying out environmental searches that go in certain details with regard to Wisbech flooding.

Q.

Our agent has put forward a solicitor which they often use. Is it risky to instruct this firm?

A.

It is commonplace for agents to suggest a law firm, however, these referrals need to be weighed up against alternatives, as an agent may choose the solicitor willing to pay the highest referral fee, not the best solicitor for your needs.

Q.

What can a Wisbech property lawyer do if the flat I want to buy is in a local authority conservation area and has unauthorised new windows installed?

A.

The local authority searches conducted by a solicitor in the process of the conveyancing should confirm whether the property is inside a conservation area and evidence of planning consent for alterations will be required.
