Q.

Worcester attractions and landmarks

A.

The Greyfriars National Trust Worcester St Swithun Churches Conservation Trust and Spetchley All Saints Churches Conservation Trust are around Worcester.

The nearest hospital is Worcester, South Bank.

Q.

I need affordable conveyancing, we are on a tight budget.

A.

Many buyers and sellers seeking discount conveyancing are caught out by the lure of very low conveyancing rates. Many firms promote 'the cheapest conveyancing'. Often additional fees are often hiding in the small print, left unread by preoccupied buyers and sellers

Q.

My lender is Earl Shilton Building Society, what will we need to consider?

A.

Some lenders have opted to reduce the size of their 'solicitor panel'. Homeward Legal are able to act for the majority of mortgage lenders.

Q.

The vendor appears to have fitted chimney stacks on the flat which we think may violate The Canal conservation area guidelines.

A.

Worcester council LLC1 searches conducted by a property lawyer in the process of the conveyancing will confirm whether the property is inside a designated conservation area and evidence of local authority approval for additions to the property will be asked for.

Q.

In the next few we are likely to be finally moving from our terraced residence on the outskirts of Worcester into our new dwelling in Tenbury Wells . At what stage to select a removals firm?

Most solicitors usually recommend that buyers hold off booking a removals company until after exchange of contracts as it is likely that a move date will not have been fixed. If you are looking for a local company try Malvern, Wylds La, Worcester, WR5 1DN Tel: 01905 357930 or Andy Vans, 94 Canterbury Rd, Worcester, WR5 1PL Call: 01905 355915.

Q.

We have found a plethora of helpful handbooks going into great depth on do it yourself conveyancing. That being the case, do I have to use Worcester property solicitor ?

A.

There is no argument why a home mover cant adopt a DIY approach and carry out the legal and technical work without the help of an instructed property lawyer in Worcester. The truth is however that a Worcester property solicitor handles a large number of jobs ranging from chasing notices/share certificates and apportioning ground rents which need a skilled professional.

Essentially DIY lawyers will not be covered by acceptable professional indemnity insurance which practicing firms and their solicitors are obligated to have.

Q.

Can Worcester brownfield land top-soil still be contaminated?

Q.

Environmental searches are standard procedure for home buyers but in light of recent events such as the widespread flooding in 2012 in the Midlands are they the best way to report sufficient information about the Worcester future flood risk?
