How do we find low cost conveyancing in Beacon Hill?


Many online and high street firms promote theoretically cheap conveyancing, but extra fees may be added into the solicitor's terms of engagement. Your conveyancing quote should state third party costs, termed disbursements, to be paid. Extra costs found in your solicitor's terms needs to be clearly defined.


We are buying on a Beacon Hill brownfield site. Could the soil be contaminated by industrial waste?


Steps are taken on a national level to identify and remediate topsoil contamination. Various bodies hold data on land contaminants affecting Beacon Hill, including local authorities.


Mortgage Agency Services is our mortgage lender - is there anything we need to consider?


Buyers should be aware that some lenders have limited the number of solicitors who can act for them. Homeward Legal will act for all major lenders, keeping buyers' legal costs to a minimum.


There are a plethora of helpful resources about doing the legal work yourself. That being the case, do I need to spend money on a Beacon Hill property lawyer for my move?


If you wish to do so, you can practically undertake the bulk of the if not all of the legal work without formally instructing Beacon Hill solicitor. That said, a property lawyer in Beacon Hill carries out a

large number of assignments including chasing retention releases and investigating title documents most of which need training. Above all else DIY conveyancers are not covered by acceptable insurance which every solicitors are under a duty to take out.


I plan to buy a house in the parish of Wanborough. Should we get a chancel search?


Your property solicitor may suggest that a chancel search is taken out. Although some parish councils have exercised their right to exact chancel repairs on new owners of affected property, a solicitor cannot state with certainty that a parish which has not imposed liability will not automatically be the case for future owners. For property in the parish of Wanborough, it is not safe to rely on the historical behaviour of the parish council alone as a guide.


What sort of searches in respect to the uncertain risk of possible flooding in Surrey will the Beacon Hill conveyancing solicitor apply for?


An integral step in the legal procedure involves the conveyancing lawyer applying for environmental searches that give you details regarding Beacon Hill area flood risk. In addition a Beacon Hill conveyancing solicitor might suggest an inexpensive additional involved flood search.


As a result of the fact that 2012 was second wettest year since 1920, I am concerned that property environmental searches may not be sufficient?


Environmental searches handled by your Beacon Hill property lawyer should also include the far more thorough Landmark flood search if the risk warrants it.

If you remain still apprehensive it may be worth trying to consult one of your future neighbours.


What particular property searches conveyancing searches should my Beacon Hill solicitor carry out for a Beacon Hill flat?


The common procedure will be to get the following Local Authority (personal or official), Drainage and Water Search, Environmental, Tin Mining Search and China Clay Search and, depending on certain criteria, specific local Beacon Hill searches, which might include Planning and local information.
