What are the best rates for conveyancing for a £742k house?


Numerous solicitors claim to offer supposedly 'the cheapest conveyancing quotes'. However extra fees will be included in the solicitor's terms of engagement. These terms are often ignored by excited buyers, eager to get underway. Our quotes clearly state all legal fees for a standard conveyancing transaction.


If I plan to buy in the parish of St George Hanover Square, will we need a chancel search?


Whichever New Covent Garden parish you are buying in, a property solicitor could advise a chancel search. Although some Parochial Church Councils have chosen to charge chancel repairs on the current owners of lay rectorships, a conveyancing solicitor cannot verify that a parish where dues have not recently been paid will not automatically be the case for future owners, so indemnity insurance may be advisable even if liability is unlikely.


Conveyancing solicitors in New Covent Garden do a number of searches when instructed to act for a property purchaser but what actual ones?

If applying for a mortgage a mortgage lender insist that a specified set of searches, including these searches - Local Authority (council), Drainage Search (Con29DW or personal) and Environmental, and perhaps area-specific searches for example Planning report.

When in the conveyancing process is it wise to instruct a conveyancing solicitor to handle our transaction?


In the majority of situations, the earlier, the better. Instructing your solicitor sooner for a purchase means that your offer may be taken more seriously if you already have a solicitor instructed, or, if you are selling a property, information, especially from slow third-parties, can be requested even prior to accepting an offer.


Has soil in New Covent Garden been contaminated by tin (Sn)?


Though the dangers are usually minor, where substances causing significant pollution of surface waters or groundwater are found the land will be defined as 'contaminated'. Land may also be contaminated by other sources, including ammonia.
