Q.

How do we find affordable conveyancing?

A.

Misleading conveyancing quotes catch out many buyers and sellers, leaving them to pay sometimes £100s more than planned. Many solicitors purport to offer supposedly 'the cheapest conveyancing quotes', but additional costs are frequently hidden in small print. The conveyancing quote should state applicable disbursements.Get a quote using the Homeward Legal quote calculator for the property you are buying.

Q.

What will a Yaxley property lawyer advise if the maisonette I am buying is inside a Peterborough conservation area which has unsuitable PVC windows installed?

A.

Peterborough planning authority LLC1 searches conducted by your Yaxley conveyancing solicitor will establish whether the Yaxley property a designated conservation area proof of planning authority consent for modifications will be supplied. If no necessary permissions be supplied the solicitor will give you professional advice on the options such as seeking cover from an indemnity insurance or getting retrospective consent from Peterborough local authority.

Q.

I am intending to purchase a chapel in the parish of Brinkley. Is a chancel search required?

A.

A Yaxley conveyancing solicitor could recommend a chancel search, regardless of the parish in which the house

being purchased is located. Through some Parochial Church Councils have determined to exact chancel repairs on owners of land subject to chancel liability, there is no way to be certain that a parish which has not been subject to chancel liability in the past will not automatically be the case for future owners. It is not safe to rely on the historical behaviour of the parish council alone as a guide.

Q.

My lender is The Mortgage Works - what will I need to check?

A.

In some cases, lenders have opted to reduce the size of their 'solicitor panel'. Homeward Legal can act for many lenders so that you will not be required to pay the lender's legal fees.

Q.

How much can our searches be?

A.

The cost of conveyancing searches can vary markedly, subject to which searches have been ordered.

Q.

Which Yaxley mortgage lender panels are your solicitors members of?

A.

Q.

What environmental concerns will contaminate land in Yaxley, and should they be a concern?

A.

Several contaminants may lessen the value of Yaxley property, and factors like radioactive substances in the region will be reported on in environmental search results.

Q.

As a result of the fact that last year was second wettest year since 1920 we are worried that environmental searches aren't detailed enough?

A.

A qualified conveyancing solicitor in Yaxley should always get additional rigorous conveyancing searches (environmental) from Landmark if the first searches identifies a local Yaxley flood risk.

You could also try to also speak to a neighbour or local resident for additional more peace of mind.
