I need a cheap solicitor to own a home. What should be watch out for?


Many property lawyers purport to offer supposedly cheap conveyancing, but extra costs will be included in the solicitor's terms. Any costs found in terms of engagement should be reasonable and come into force only if the conveyancer must complete work beyond standard conveyancing for you, which could not be anticipated at the start of the process. Third party costs, termed disbursements, to be paid should be included on your quote. The Homeward Legal quote calculator will confirm the exact legal fees based on the property you are buying.


Is contaminated land a problem in Kentish Town?


A wide range of contaminants could impact land in Kentish Town, such as coal mining and pollution incidents. An environmental search will give more detail.
