I am looking for a law firm that offers cheap conveyancing in Chingford. What do we need to check for?


This issue catches out many buyers, and can leave them paying far more in fees than they budgeted. Many firms offer 'the cheapest conveyancing quotes'. Often additional costs are often hiding in the terms of engagement, left unregarded by busy buyers Extra costs should be fair. The disbursements to be paid should also be included on a Chingford conveyancing quote. Our quotes clearly state all legal fees for a standard conveyancing transaction.


Do I need to instruct the conveyancing solicitor suggested by the estate agent?


Estate agent referrals are a common practice path whereby buyers get a solicitor. These referrals should be considered carefully, as the agent may recommend whichever firm pays the most per referral, not the most appropriate choice.


What makes sale conveyancing to take months to complete?


The conveyancing process could be delayed even in the best of circumstances. The reasons can unhappily be out of a lawyer's hands, we, however, do our best to minimise the consequences of these delays where it is possible

to do so by, for example, ordering searches as early as possible. Common delays may include problems with arranging a mortgage.


Is it practical to do the conveyancing myself ourselves.


Conceivably there is absolutely no reason why a home buyer cant adopt a DIY approach and conduct legal process unaided. That said, a conveyancer juggles a significant number of actions e.g. liaising with the insolvency office for k15 entries and handling retentions many of which need a qualified professional. Despite that firms and their solicitors are required to pay for professional indemnity insurance that ultimately protects you from any professional oversights.


What do I need to be aware of if we invest in a converted house in a Waltham Forest council designated conservation area ?


An integral part of the property legal includes making enquiries of Waltham Forest council to see conservation area status and the required formal approval for developments. .


Will your Chingford lawyer carry out any property on the London Fifties detached house I am buying?


When you are getting a mortgage the lender will expect specific searches, including the following for properties in Chingford: Local Authority (council), Drainage and Water Search (CON29DW) and Environmental and perhaps specific local searches for example Chancel Search.


Which issues help with ensuring fast legal work?


Most importantly, finding a proactive, diligent conveyancer is the key to a fast transaction. There are numerous tasks you, as the buyer, can also do to get moving sooner. These include:

  • requesting status updates from the conveyancer regularly
  • promptly completing and return any forms
  • arranging any finances require to complete the purchase


Which local authority is responsible for Chingford?


Chingford is located in London Borough of Waltham Forest Council, Town Hall, Forest Road, London, E17 4JF, phone: 020 8496 3000
