I am buying a house in the parish of Harmondsworth. Do we need a chancel search?

The property lawyer might recommend a chancel search. Chancel repair dues can be collected on owners of a property where parish councils have not imposed the same liability on the last owners.


Do I need to instruct a conveyancing offered by my agent?


Agent recommendations are a commonplace way to find a solicitor. However, if they are paid a referral fee, there is a risk that an agent may choose the firm which pays to the largest referral fee, not the law firm with the best reputation.


What are the reasons why Harrow property legal work for a sale goes on for so long?


Conveyancing could potentially be delayed. We seek to diminish their cost where feasible to do so by using fast search providers. Delays may include slow third parties such as landlords or managing agents.


The current owner appears to have added unbecoming windows to the house in Harrow which we think might possibly defy conservation area criteria


A property lawyer is required to confirm whether the property is located within a designated conservation area, and if so, whether any modifications have the necessary permission from the Brent planning authority.


Is Harrow top-soil possibly contaminated by iron?


Some metal contamination may have occurred throughout Harrow, but an area will only be identified as 'contaminated land' if the risk to human life or the environment is deemed unacceptable. The local authority for Harrow will be able to provide more detail on cases of contamination.


When in the conveyancing process is it wise to get a conveyancer?


The straightforward answer is, the sooner you instruct a firm, the better. Some groups advocate postponing instruction until a chain is completed, but delays can risk the other side pulling out, particularly in uncertain market conditions.


I am moving in Harrow, and have a quote from you. Might there be any hidden fees?


No. Homeward Legal do not hide any additional fees to transact a property. Some conveyancers give 'quotes' which are in fact estimates, which they will not be bound to.
