Marlow life and amenities

Pubs and bars in the areas include the Cross Keys, the O'Donoghues, the Slug & Lettuce and the Ship away. Cliveden, Fawley Court and Odds Farm Park are listed among points of interest.
Marlow's local residents also do their shopping at the local Waitrose on Chapel House, Chapel Street. Waitrose's brand value reaches beyond a supermarket where you buy groceries however. Living near a Waitrose can boost the value of your property by around twenty five percent. Some agents may not be convinced by 'the Waitrose effect', even so this is something to consider if you are purchasing in the area.
The Sale and Purchase Conveyancing Stages
Choosing your conveyancing quote
Firstly, choose a conveyancing solicitor based on your priorities. Look for fixed-fee quotes with 'no sale, no fee' protection, but ensure that you check terms and conditions for additional fees.
Instructing a solicitor
When you have ascertained which firms quote you want to go with you will have to formally instruct to complete the legal work on your Marlow home move. You should check the Marlow solicitors terms of engagement for any hidden charges like fees for right to buy purchasers, before you approve them.
After you have instructed
After you have instructed, your conveyancing solicitor will contact the other side's solicitor to receive and negotiate the draft contract. This document sets out confirmation of the price and deposit, and details regarding the buyer and seller.
Get a HomeBuyer Report or Building Survey
A survey is necessary in order to establish if there are any potential structural issues including ground heave or potential planning breaches. Surveyors in Marlow will be well informed of local concerns which may include witchert.
Marlow conveyancing searches
There are four basic searches. These are Chancel Liability, Local Authority, Environmental and Drainage and Water, and these cover many matters including conservation area restrictions. In addition, your solicitor may also advise on potential further searches.
When the buyer and seller are happy with the contract, both sides sign copies. The buyer then hands over the 10% deposit.
The purchaser may then pick up from the agent keys to their purchase after the seller's conveyancing solicitor confirms that they have received the funds that are due.
After Completion Details
Despite the fact that you have now taken possession of your new home your property lawyer has unfinished paperwork to complete like paying the SDLT.
