Q.

We are looking for fixed rate Witham conveyancing. What should we check?

A.

Misleading conveyancing quotes catch out many buyers and sellers, leaving them to pay sometimes £100s more than planned, and many firms purport to offer so-called cheap conveyancing quotes, however extra fees may inflate the final bill. Extras included in terms and conditions ought to be reasonable. Third party costs, termed disbursements, to be paid should also be clearly stated on the quote. Our quotes clearly state all legal fees for a standard conveyancing transaction.

Q.

At what point do you need to get a conveyancing solicitor?

A.

Whether buying or selling, the faster you instruct the better. Early instruction of a firm to act on your Witham sale or purchase can reduce any chance of the sale or purchase falling though.

Q.

What will my searches cost?

A.

Q.

Should you get searches for chancel liability if we are buying in Witham by land owned by the church?

A.

In Witham, where land was once owned by a lay rectors, new owners of that property may be obliged to subsidise maintenance of a local church. A number of sources are used to identify

Do any conservation areas in Witham have the potential to affect us?

A.

Conservation areas denote neighbourhoods registered as being of historical or architectural value. The local authority will advise further about local conservation areas, and the property solicitor handling your purchase will discuss the relevant responsibilities you would be taking on by purchasing in a conservation area.

Q.

Which factors will affect land in Witham. Will they be comprehensively investigated?

A.

A range of contaminants may seriously affect land in Witham. Contaminants like shallow mining should be considered as part of the appropriate search.

Q.

DIY conveyancing without instructing a lawyer in Witham is becoming possible when buying a maisonette , but would it be actually be practicable ?

A.

Theoretically there are no reasons at all why a home mover cant opt to look after the bulk of the your own conveyancing yourself. That said, a Witham conveyancer carries out a significant number of functions such as chasing missing documents and ongoing communication with the other sides solicitors many of which are more safely handled with appropriate experience. In addition solicitors firms are required by their regulator to carry applicable indemnity cover that ultimately protects you from any omissions.

Q.

What can a Witham property solicitor advise if the house I am planning to buy is situated in a Braintree planning authority conservation area which has unsuitable dormer windows installed?

Braintree planning authority enquiries conducted by your Witham conveyancing solicitor as part of the conveyancing will ascertain whether the Witham property a designated conservation area and any evidence of formal approval for additions to the property will be required.
