Q.

How do we find a cheap solicitor for buying a flat?

A.

This matter catches out many buyers, and can leave them paying far more in fees than they budgeted. Many conveyancers offer so-called 'the cheapest conveyancing quotes', but extra fees are frequently hidden in small print that unknowing buyers have not reviewed Extra costs included in your solicitor's terms ought to be fair and clearly defined. Any disbursements should also be included on the quote

Q.

We are buying on a new development brownfield land. Can the topsoil still be contaminated?

A.

Measures are taken on a national level to identify and remediate topsoil contamination. Land may also be contaminated by other sources, including groundwater contamination.

Q.

Will a title report compiled by the Woking conveyancing solicitor advise me on the cost of the council tax for a Band G flat prior to exchanging contracts?

A solicitor will approach the local council to enquire about the appropriate council tax charges which will then be included in the conveyancer's title report. The latest council tax charges for Woking are set out on the council website.

Q.

Which local factors can impact land in Woking, and will they be properly investigated?

A.

Land in Woking could be contaminated by a range of natural and human-influenced issues, such as local historic industrial processes. An environmental search will give more information.

Q.

Which local authority is responsible for Woking?

A.

Woking is located in Woking Borough Council, Civic Offices, Gloucester Square, Woking, Surrey, GU21 6YL, contact: 01483 755 855

Q.

I am going to buy with Lloyds TSB Scotland - what will I need to check?

A.

Some lenders have reduced their 'solicitor panel', which may result in increased legal costs for purchasers. Homeward Legal, however, are able to act on behalf of many lenders to keep legal costs to a minimum.

Q.

How early is it wise to speak to a conveyancing solicitor to act on our sale?

A.

In the vast majority of cases, earlier is preferable. Some sources advocate holding off instruction until an offer has been firmly agreed, but delays can risk the other side pulling out, particularly in uncertain market conditions.

Q.

We are going to buy a 1940s building in a conservation area in Woking. How do I find more information concerning the state of repair of the Woking conservation area?

A.

Local conservation areas are specified by Woking (borough) who govern everything from area development to the avoidance of vacant buildings.

English Heritage, a government body, keep a list on the condition (poor to good) of conservation areas as well as the exposure to the area falling into disrepair.
