Living in the Dunstable area

Known as Durocobrivis in Roman times, Dunstable is a market town in Bedfordshire with archaeological evidence showing human existence going back to prehistoric times. Being on one of the main routes north from London, Dunstable’s popularity grew for horse-riders and carriage-drivers as a stop-off and rest point, but the later straw-hat-making centre of excellence subsequently gave way to car-building.

High street shopping is catered for by The Butchers, D. & E. Hines Butchers, Prudens Bakery, and Ron Cherry Greengrocers, although most of the supermarkets have at least one of the branches in or around Dunstable.

Local watering holes include the White Swan Inn, the White Lion, and the Old Farm Inn, and attractions available to residents and visitors include Dunstable Priory, Ivinghoe Beacon, and Dunstable Downs.

Step-by-step conveyancing guide

Selecting a quote for the conveyancingThe first step in the legal process is choosing a conveyancing solicitor to actually carry out the work on your behalf. Focus on fixed-fee quotes with ‘no move, no fee’ protection, but ensure that you also check the terms and conditions for any hidden costs that would mean an inflated legal bill after completion.

Engaging a solicitorWhen you have chosen which company's conveyancing quote you wish to accept, the next step will be to instruct them. This requires you to consider, review, consent to, and sign the solicitor’s formal terms of business.

The pre-contract stageThe seller’s conveyancer negotiates the draft contract with the buyer’s solicitor, and the early enquiries are made. The contract is finalised, and preliminary dates may also be agreed for exchange and completion.

Arrange the Home SurveyPurchasers are invariably encouraged to get a property survey, because it will spot any potentially expensive structural issues, such as lack of internal support and penetrating damp.

Searches in DunstableThere are four normal searches: Chancel Liability, Local Authority, Environmental, and Drainage and Water. These searches look into numerous aspects affecting the property you are buying, including details of conservation area controls. Your conveyancer could also recommend additional searches, but these will be discussed with you along with information of the costs of these extra disbursements.

Exchange of contractsContracts are signed and exchanged. The buyer and seller are now legally obligated to complete the transaction.

CompletionOn a set day, the balance of funds due is paid to the seller’s conveyancer, and the buyer gets the keys to the new home from the estate agent.
