Do we need to be worried about 'fixtures and fittings'?


Buyers in Old Ford are frequently confused by the lack of detail regarding which fixtures and fittings are included in a sale. The parties' may have widely differing assumptions about what will be included; this can make the clarification of any difference of opinion so important.


Why could the conveyancing process take weeks to complete?


Conveyancing will sometimes experience delays for a variety of reasons. The reasons are on occasion unhappily beyond the conveyancing solicitor's power. We endeavour to lessen their consequences whenever we can by chasing for prompt responses. There are numerous reasons for delay, such as slow third parties such as landlords or managing agents.


Is there a government body any detailed free published record on the standard of Old Ford conservation areas?


Conservation area concerns, for example the upkeep of public spaces, removal of chimney stacks or excessive road signs are overseen by Tower Hamlets. Following a campaign, English Heritage have put together details in relation to the condition of conservation areas along with the trend.


When should you instruct a conveyancer?


If you use a firm offering a 'no move, no fee' guarantee, instructing as soon as possible is wise. The legal work can then start immediately. Prompt instruction of a firm to act for you on your Old Ford transaction for a purchase may mean that your offer may be taken more seriously if you already have a solicitor instructed, or, if you are selling a property, prior to marketing the property, documents can be prepared to make it potentially more attractive to motivated buyers.


If we plan to buy near Old Ford, in the parish of Islington [St Mary], do we need a chancel search?


Whichever Old Ford parish you are purchasing in, a Old Ford conveyancing solicitor could recommend a chancel search. In Old Ford's much older areas, chancel repair has the potential to be imposed on the current owners of a house where church councils may have not done so in the past, so it can be difficult to use this as a guide.


How much time may be accounted for conveyancing legal work often require, on average?


For most residential property, the amount of time needed to transact a home varies, dependent on a handful of considerations which may include where management information is required. With our Old Ford property specialists, every sale is handled as fast as possible, without compromising on service.


Would you advise that we get a chancel liability search when we are buying in Old Ford close to a 1500s glebe?


Property owners near to churches may be required to contribute towards the cost of repairs. This is referred to as chancel repair liability. A chancel search is used to check that such a liability exists. Liability is more common in some parts of the country. The solicitor acting on your behalf will confirm that a chancel search is appropriate. Old Ford Church of England properties include St Paul.
