Conveyancing In Yeovil Q & A's
I plan to purchase a home in Rowberrow. Will a chancel search be required?
A conveyancing lawyer might recommend that a chancel search is taken out. Chancel repair dues can be collected on owners of a property where Parochial Church Councils may have spared previous owners or tenants. Even if liability is unlikely, indemnity insurance is a sensible precaution.
Would arranging a building survey be required when we are buying residential property?
It is suggested that most purchasers arrange a building survey. It is a fact that there are a wide range of defects which affect a property, that a solicitor will be unable to address, for example insect infestation.
We are on a deadline and need guarantee fast conveyancing, what do we need to do?
As is often reported, finding a experienced property lawyer is crucial to fast Yeovil conveyancing. There are a number of things you as the purchaser can also do to speed up your conveyancing, including, promptly completing and return any forms, confirming your mortgage offer and calling or emailing the property lawyer, and chase them if you suspect any delays.
What do I get for my money from an estate agent?
A good estate agent will be able to bring their local knowledge into your transaction and reduce the amount of stress you might experience as part of the whole moving experience.
Although it might seem that agents do very little for their clients, they will help you set the sale price for your home by using their knowledge of similar properties, a large part will involve marketing your home by expressing it in its best light online and through fliers, phone calls and emails, etc., they will conduct viewings with ay interested potential buyers, manage the negotiations on the offers as they come in and, by law, they will also have to take all necessary steps to ensure the buyer is serious about entering into the contract to purchase the property when an offer is made.
However good you believe your chosen estate agent to be, you should take time to read through the terms and conditions thoroughly to understand what you’re paying them and what you’re going to get for your money.
Is soil remediation of a contaminated plot available in Yeovil?
In Yeovil, remediation can often be possible. A local service provider e.g. White Post Turf, 28 St Johns Rd, Yeovil, BA21 5NG may be able to provide more details.
Are the doctors/dentists/schools oversubscribed in the area I want to move to?
Although your conveyancing solicitor may have some personal knowledge of these critical factors, they are not part of the conveyancing process, so will not form part of the contract.
If aspects such as how likely you’ll get into a surgery or school are important to you, it is worth factoring this in at an early stage when you are researching the areas into which you want to move. You can also glean some facts from the estate agent representing properties where you want to move, too. You might also like to contact the surgeries or schools for further information.
