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. The online quote calculator can generate an accurate statement of the legal fees for the property you plan to buy.

Q.

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

A.

The regular conveyancing protocol is to get Local Authority Search, Drainage Search (Con29DW or personal) and Environment Search, and possibly specific searches, which may include a Land charges full Search.

Q.

Is a property survey required when buying a house or flat, regardless of its age?

A.

It is strongly suggested that home buyers book a property survey. It is a fact that there are many concerns that have a negative impact on a property, which are not included in your mortgage lender's valuation. These can include rotten roof timbers.

Q.

May the legal charges hide any hidden charges?

A.

Homeward Legal will never charge any hidden costs regardless of circumstances.

Q.

How can we find out if a property is in a conservation area?

A.

There are numerous areas of conservation in or near Woburn. Woburn itself is named as a conservation area. You may wish to contact the local authority for further information, but your property solicitor will investigate the impact of conservation areas or other planning restrictions.

Q.

Following recent news about the Met Office warning of more intense rainfall, I am concerned that conveyancing searches won't be sufficient?

A.

Conveyancing searches carried out by your Woburn conveyancing solicitor will also include the far more thorough Landmark flood search if it is felt necessary.

It may be sensible to contact a close neighbour to gain further information.

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.

Q.

How might conveyancing for a Woburn property purchase require months? We had a rather slow firm the last time we moved.

A.

The Woburn conveyancing process can take more time than initially expected, Homeward Legal, however, do our best to minimise their cost whenever feasible by chasing for prompt responses.
