I am buying a property for cash in Fenstanton. I have been living for the previous Seventeen years in Fenstanton. Conveyancing searches are a lot of money. Given that I know the area and road very well must I have all the conveyancing searches?

In the absence of a home loan, then all but one or two of the Fenstanton conveyancing searches are at your discretion. Your conveyancer will try and steer you, no-doubt strongly, that you should have searches completed, but she has a professional duty to do this. Do take into account; if you are likely to dispose of the house one day, it will be of relevance to your future buyer what the searches contain. Sometimes premises with no practical issues can still reveal unpredicted search results. A competent conveyancing solicitor in Fenstanton should provide you some sensible guidance concerning this.

I am assisting my aunt sell her house in Fenstanton. Does the conveyancing solicitor order an EPC or it is for the owner to coordinate?

After the demise of Home Packs, EPC’s remained a required element of moving property. An energy performance certificate needs to be commissioned before the property is marketed. This is not something that law firms ordinarily organise. Where you are using a Fenstanton conveyancing lawyer they might be willing to arrange energy assessments given their relationships with reputable Fenstanton assessors

I am selling our home in Fenstanton and according to the buyers it appears that there is a possibility that the property was constructed land that was not decontaminated. A high street Fenstanton lawyer would know this is not the case. For the life of me I don't know why the purchasers used a national conveyancing outfit as opposed to a conveyancing solicitor in Fenstanton. Having lived in Fenstanton for 5 years we know of no issue. Is it a good idea to contact our local Authority to obtain clarification that there is no issue.

It sounds as though you may have a conveyancing firm already. What do they say? You need to enquire of your lawyer before you do anything. It is very possible that once the local authority has been informed of a potential issue it cannot be insured against (a bit like being diagnosed with a serious illness and then taking out health insurance to cover that same sickness)

I am four weeks into a leasehold purchase having been referred to solicitors by the selling agent to handle our conveyancing in Fenstanton. I am am extremely dissatisfied with the quality of service. Could you help me find new conveyancers?
