Q.

How do I get fixed rate conveyancing in Woodcote?

A.

This catches out many buyers, and can leave them paying far more in fees than they budgeted. Many law firms offer 'the cheapest conveyancing'. Unfortunately extra costs are often hiding in the terms and conditions. Any additional costs should be fair and reasonable. They come into force only if your lawyer must complete additional work , which could not be anticipated at the start of the process. Your quote should list any disbursements to be paid.

Q.

We are buying on a newly development ex-industrial site. Could the soil be contaminated by industrial waste like cobalt?

A.

Extensive measures are taken in the areas around Woodcote to resolve top-soil contamination. Other sources of contaminated land include ammonia and groundwater contaminants like solvents.

Q.

What type of local environmental searches into the risk and history of flooding in the Oxfordshire area will the conveyancing solicitor in Woodcote actually carry out?

An important component in the legal procedure of buying a property involves your solicitor applying for environmental searches that offer detail with respect to Woodcote area flood risk. Depending on the results, the conveyancing solicitor in Woodcote will typically advocate a significantly more specialist local Woodcote search. The most recent reports on the Environment Agency do not show any flood warnings in Woodcote.

Q.

What are conveyancing searches in relation to?

A.

Searches are a standard pack of queries performed on your behalf, such as an environmental search. These searches only deal with the legal condition of the property's title.

Q.

Does your firm get involved in the legal conveyancing of auction properties in Woodcote?

A.

Yes - We are used to working with auction buyers and sellers. Traditionally unusually constructed homes e. g. properties designated for mixed use, are sold in auctions which tend to need added examination before exchange. Lawyers therefore suggest that auction buyers select a CQS lawyer in advance of the actual auction to allow sufficient time for a detailed review. Q.

How is Woodcote contaminated land investigated?

A.

Residential property may have been contaminated by a wide range of environmental factors, and factors such as potentially contaminative use of nearby land and coal mining will be reported on in environmental search results.

Q.

We are purchasing a property in the parish of Oxford All Saints. Will we need a chancel search?

A.

Your conveyancer could advise a chancel search. Chancel repair has the potential to be charged on the owners of a residence where Parochial Church Councils (PCCs) have previously chosen not to do so. In the event that chancel liability may apply, your solicitor might recommend insurance rather than pulling out of the purchase.

Q.

Which local authority is responsible for Woodcote?

A.

Woodcote is located in Wycombe District Council, Queen Victoria Road, High Wycombe, Buckinghamshire, HP11 1BB, contact: 01494 461 000
