Are additional fees applied? We are trying to find fixed rate Piccadilly conveyancing.


Numerous solicitors promote cheap conveyancing. Unfortunately additional fees will be included in small print. Excited sellers and buyers, eager to get underway, often ignore this small print when they instruct. Any disbursements ought to be listed on your conveyancing quote


Conveyancing solicitors in Piccadilly conduct standard searches if instructed by a home purchaser but what specific searches?


When getting a mortgage the building society of bank mandates specific searches, including the following Local Authority (personal or official), Drainage Search (Con29DW or personal) and Environmental and, depending on certain criteria, specific local Piccadilly searches for instance a SIM.


What do we need to know if we buy an extended home within the boundary of a Westminster planning authority designated conservation area ?


Part of the legal process involves the making of enquiries of the local authority to confirm conservation area status and consent being granted for any modifications. Personal or official searches are not fees and are charged at cost to the buyer.

In the absence of any consents, your Piccadilly conveyancer will recommend the options, which include requesting retrospective permission from the council or seeking cover from an indemnity policy.


What causes conveyancing for a Piccadilly property sale to require months?


Conveyancing could be drawn out. We appreciate how difficult it can be to face these and do our best to reduce the cost of these delays whenever feasible.


Is it advisable to get a chancel search? We are buying on the same road as a 1400s 'parson's close' in Piccadilly.


There are over 15,000 parishes throughout the country. Owners of property within some of these may be required to contribute towards the repair of a local church. As a result of the Land Registration Act 2002, interest over any affected land in Piccadilly must be registered by October 2013. This will make it easier to identify affected property through a chancel search.

Is there any comprehensive easily accessible data about the conservation areas in Piccadilly?


Following a campaign, English Heritage now maintain details of the condition of conservation areas as well as the trend. Local Piccadilly conservation area matters for instance private spaces, removal of chimney stacks or vacant buildings etc. are regulated by the local authority (Westminster).
