We are looking for a solicitors firm that offers cheap conveyancing in Hornchurch. How do we get a quote?


Many online and high street firms purport to offer theoretically cheap conveyancing. However additional fees can pad your solicitor's invoice. Any costs needs to be fair and clearly defined and only apply in cases where the lawyer is required to complete extra work , which could not be anticipated at the start of the process. Our quotes clearly state the solicitors' fees for a standard conveyancing transaction.


When in the process do you need to instruct a conveyancer?


The short answer is, instructing as soon as possible is wise. Instructing your solicitor earlier can reduce any chance of the transaction aborting.


We are purchasing a property in the parish of St George Hanover Square. Will it be necessary to get a chancel search?


A solicitor is likely to recommend that a chancel search is ordered, irrespective of the parish where the home being bought is found. Through some Parochial Church Councils (PCCs) have opted to exact chancel repairs on the current owners of lay rectorships, a solicitor cannot state with certainty that a parish which has not been subject to chancel liability in the past will continue to be unaffected.


What type of analysis in relation to the risk of flooding in the Havering region will my property solicitor in Hornchurch advise on?

Will you need to get a chancel search if we are buying in Hornchurch?


Chancel repair liability can require Hornchurch home owners to fund upkeep of church property in the locality. Indemnity policies can be arranged if chancel liability is likely to be enforced. A solicitor will be able to advise further. Ecclesiastical properties in this area where chancel liability may apply include Elm Park St Nicholas, Holy Cross, Squirrel's Heath All Saints and St Andrew.


Where can we learn more information the status of Hornchurch and Hornchurch conservation areas?


Conservation are issues for instance private spaces, addition of hard standings to the front of houses or excessive road signs are handled by Havering. Following a campaign, English Heritage maintain a list in relation to the condition (poor to good) of conservation areas in Hornchurch and across England as well as the vulnerability of the area.


Could cobalt contaminate land in Hornchurch?


There are wide-ranging regulations in place to restrict topsoil contamination. Also considering issues such as water contaminants such as oil and asbestos, contaminants affecting Hornchurch property will be factored into an environmental search.


In respect of the statistics that 1 4m people are at risk coastal or river flooding we are asking if flood risk searches might not be thorough enough?


An experienced Hornchurch conveyancer should get additional conveyancing and environmental searches if the environmental searches spots a significant risk.

For greater assurance you could always converse with a neighbour.
