I am looking for a cheap solicitor to purchase a house. and what is included?


Confusion over this topic catches out many homeowners, and can leave them paying far more in fees than they budgeted, and many conveyancers purport to offer theoretically cheap conveyancing. Unfortunately additional costs may be added into the terms of engagement. Your quote should list any disbursements to be paid. Any additional charges included in the small print should be reasonable and clear. We offer quotes, not estimates, and clearly state all legal fees you pay for a standard conveyancing transaction.


We are buying in Harmondsworth on a recently-developed brownfield land. Can the soil still be contaminated?


Harmondsworth's local area has a history of contamination from agriculture or industry, like much of the UK. Environment search results will factor contaminants, including metals and others such as water contaminants such as hydrocarbons.


For fast conveyancing on the purchase of a £105,000 home, what can we do to speed up the conveyancing process?


As is widely reported, a faster move is crucial to is to employing a proactive solicitor. There are, however, several tasks you, as the purchaser, could do. These include:

  • answering any queries raised by your solicitor as soon as possible
  • getting your mortgage offer in place
  • keeping in regular contact with the solicitor


There is a lot of free information about DIY conveyancing when buying a house. Would it be a good economy to carry out the conveyancing myself??


Should you wish to try you can definitely do the conveyancing without instructing a trained Harmondsworth property lawyer. The truth is however that a conveyancer in Harmondsworth typically handles a significant number of actions including chasing lender for comments on issues raised and interpreting management accounts many of which are more safely handled with appropriate a skilled professional. Critically amateur lawyers will not have sufficient insurance which qualified solicitors will have.


I am buying in Harmondsworth. Can I check that the building is in a conservation area?


Areas deemed to be of historic or architectural significance, such as 18th century suburbs, will be defined as conservation areas. The local council will provide more details about local conservation areas, and the conveyancing solicitor handling your purchase should discuss what specific restrictions are in place.


Is a stock transfer form fee passed on at cost?


It is not always clear whether a quoted cost is a fee or a disbursement. This cost is a fee not a disbursement, and should be included in your quote.


For what reason does conveyancing for a purchase be so drawn out?


The conveyancing process can be lengthy even in ideal circumstances. In some cases, the delays are out of the conveyancing solicitor's control. Homeward Legal know how stressful these delays can be and endeavour to reduce their impact where feasible to do so. Reasons for delay may include issues elsewhere in a chain.


Is there an authority that has any detailed data the status of the conservation areas in Harmondsworth?


Conservation areas in Harmondsworth e.g. building materials used, addition of unsympathetic windows or ugly shop fronts are administered by the local authority (Hillingdon). English Heritage, a government body, have assembled a list on the condition of conservation areas as well as the trend of the area.
