How do we find fixed rate conveyancing in Brentford?


Many solicitors promote cheap conveyancing. Often extra fees will be included in the small print. Your Brentford conveyancing quote should also state any disbursements to be paid. Any fees included in terms and conditions ought to be reasonable and only apply to matters if your solicitor is required to complete unexpected extra work , which could not be anticipated at the start of the process.


What are fixtures and fittings?


Commonly, there is no strict definition of fixtures and fittings. Completion or agreement of a fixtures and fittings form is unfortunately often left to the last minute, when a dispute may jeopordise the transaction.


Does your solicitors company handle the conveyancing of auction properties in Brentford?


Yes - Our firm is used to working with property auction conveyancing. Often hard to value houses such as development land, are included in auctions which want supplementary review.

Solicitors therefore advise bidders to formally instruct their solicitor in advance of the property auction date to allow adequate time for a detailed review of the lot.

After the actual auction your experienced lawyer is wholly geared up to concluding the purchase in the usual 28 days as required .


I am buying a property in the parish of St Botolph without Aldersgate. Is a chancel search needed?


Your solicitor may suggest a chancel search. Chancel repair has the potential to be charged on owners of a house where Parochial Church Councils may have not done so in the past, so the solicitor will be unable to make any guarantees, and will recommend insurance.


Do we need to be concerned about gazumping?


Gazumping describes when a buyer's offer is accepted, and then rejected, by the owner, opting instead for a higher offer. There is almost always a risk of gazumping. You should instruct an efficient solicitor as soon as you can to reduce the chance of gazumping.


Do we need searches for chancel liability when I am purchasing in Brentford?


Property owners near to a local church are expected to subsidise repairs, as a result of chancel repair liability. After the passing of an Act in 2002, interest over any affected land in Brentford must be registered by October 2013. This will make it easier to identify affected property through a chancel search. Brentford church properties where a chancel search may be appropriate include St Faith and St Paul.


What are the pitfalls when buying a flat in a Hounslow council designated conservation area ?


An integral part of the conveyancing process includes the application for searches of Hounslow planning authority to determine conservation area status and the required consent for any modifications. .


How can we learn additional data on the standard of the conservation areas in Brentford?


Conservation areas in Brentford including public spaces, removal of existing windows or street posts are dealt with by the local authority (Hounslow). English Heritage now maintain a list of the condition of conservation areas.
