Q.

We are trying to find fixed rate conveyancing. What should be watch out for?

A.

Many firms promote cheap conveyancing. Unfortunately extra charges are frequently hidden in the small print. Busy, stressed buyers ignore these terms at their peril. Any charges included in the terms should be fair. They come into force only if the conveyancer must complete unanticipated additional work in your interest, which could not be anticipated at the start of the process.

What searches should the Woburn conveyancing solicitor get when acting on a Woburn building?

A.

Q.

In what ways does a solicitor in Woburn report back on the risk of floods at Woburn for a residential property I am intending to buy?

A.

A property lawyer will apply for standard environmental searches that will include Woburn historical flood risk information. Depending on the results, your conveyancing solicitor in Woburn could recommend a more involved (e.g. Landmark) detailed flood risk search.

Q.

There is a lot of online help on doing ones own conveyancing as a buyer and seller of a maisonette. Would it be viable to enact the DIY conveyancing on our own?

A.

Theoretically there are no arguments why a home seller cannot do the bulk of the legal process without assistance. In reality however, a lawyer in Woburn is familiar with a huge array of jobs ranging from drafting contracts and representing the lender many of which are more safely handled with appropriate a qualified professional. AT any rate lawyers are required by their regulator to get relevant cover in order to protect you in the event of any errors.

Q.

The vendor has unfortunately fitted inappropriate window frames on the flat which I think might break the Woburn conservation area guidelines.

A.

A property solicitor will make enquiries to confirm whether the property is affected by a designated conservation area, and if so whether any alterations have the appropriate permissions from the Central Bedfordshire council. If no suitable consents be available, your conveyancing solicitor will inform you of all options which can include obtaining an indemnity insurance policy or requesting retrospective permission.
