Q.

I am looking for a cheap solicitor to purchase property. What should I check?

A.

Confusion over this matter catches out many homeowners, and can leave them paying far more in fees than they budgeted, and many firms offer so-called 'the cheapest conveyancing quotes', but additional fees are frequently hidden in the terms of engagement that unknowing homeowners have not reviewed Applicable disbursements should also be clearly stated on a conveyancing quote Additional fees should be reasonable and clear and only come into force where the lawyer must perform additional tasks on your behalf, which could not be anticipated at the start of the process.

Q.

Will the report on title compiled by the lawyer in Wootton detail the amount of the council tax for a Band B flat before completion?

A.

The property lawyer will contact the Central Bedfordshire local council to discover the up to date council tax band and rates, which will subsequently be detailed in the conveyancer's title report. The correct charges for homes in Wootton are detailed at the Central Bedfordshire council site. At the time of writing, 28 July 2012, band rates are:

  • Band A - £1,098.00
  • Band B - £1,281.00
  • Band C - £1,464.00
  • Band D - £1,647.00
  • Band E - £2,012.00
  • Band F - £2,378.00
  • Band G - £2,744.00
  • Band H - £3,293.00

Q.

Should I employ the solicitors firm who frequently works with by the estate agent in Little Oakley?

A.

Both agents and mortgage brokers may suggest one or more conveyancing firms, however, these referrals should be compared against alternatives, such as local solicitors, or firms found online, as an agent may choose whichever firm pays the most per referral, not the best value for you.

Q.

In regards to the major flooding in Sept 2012 in the East Midlands, I am wondering if environmental searches won't be sufficient?

A.

Food risk searches applied for by the Wootton conveyancing solicitor should include a more thorough Landmark flood search if required.

If you remain still concerned it may be worth trying to approach a local resident.

Q.

The current owner looks to have installed inappropriate artificial stone cladding on the building which I think may conflict with the Wootton conservation area rules.

A.

A conveyancing solicitor should check whether your new home is affected by a designated conservation area and whether any alterations have essential permissions from the local council.Should no authority consents be supplied, your Wootton conveyancing solicitor will advise you of all options for example getting an indemnity insurance policy or seeking retrospective approval from the planning authority.

Q.

What conveyancing searches will my Wootton conveyancing solicitor carry out when instructed on a Wootton property?

A.

The conventional conveyancing protocol is to obtain the following Local Authority (personal or official), Drainage Search (Con29DW) and Environmental and perhaps area-specific searches for instance Official Search of Whole or Part without Priority (OS3).

Q.

What issues are key to aim for a fast conveyancing process?

A.

Contacting a experienced conveyancing solicitor is key faster conveyancing. Consider the following when selecting:

  • Did you experience any delays when requesting a quote?
  • What methods of communication do they use? Posting documents can adds days of waiting to a purchase.
  • Will they work on a 'no sale, no fee' basis?

Q.

Which of the lender panels in Wootton are you on?

A.

The Homeward Legal partnership work closely with many lenders approved by the CML. A number of mortgage specialists operate in Wootton, such as Crabtree Consulting Ltd, 12 Atterbury Way, Great Houghton, Northampton, NN4 7AU, Northants Mortgages, 13 Carey Cl, Moulton, Northampton, NN3 7SN, and Mortgage & Property Store, 64 Gold St, Kettering, NN16 8JB.
