How do I find the best conveyancing rates for a £265k house?


Confusion over this issue catches out many homeowners, and can leave them paying far more in fees than they budgeted, and many firms purport to offer so-called cheap conveyancing, however additional costs are often hiding in the terms and conditions which unwary homeowners fail to check. Any fees found in terms and conditions should be clearly defined. We offer quotes, not estimates, and clearly state all legal fees you pay for a standard conveyancing transaction.


What type of local authority searches in connection with the risk of floods at Westminster will a St Johns Wood property lawyer conduct for a buy to let house we are going to buy?


A property solicitor will apply for formal property environmental searches, which include St Johns Wood flood risk information.


We are buying on a St Johns Wood brownfield land. Could the soil be contaminated by industrial waste?


Some metal contamination may have occurred throughout St Johns Wood, but contaminated land areas are labelled as such if the danger to the environment is judged to be too great. Metal contamination of soil in St Johns Wood is more likely to occur near ex-industrial sites or ex-landfills. Data on other contaminants, like groundwater contaminants like landfill leachate, will also be included in an environmental search.


Our agent has offered a law firm. Must we instruct them?


If you choose a conveyancer referred through this route, you the agent can use their influence persuade a slow solicitor to work faster. These referrals need to be weighed up against alternatives, as there is a risk that an agent may choose the conveyancer who pays out the highest referral fee, not the most suitable for you.


In 2 months we are looking to be finally moving out of our semi detached property in St Johns Wood to a bigger home in Little Venice . What is the best point to book a removal company?


Most solicitors usually recommend that buyers delay arranging removals until after formal exchange of contracts as prior to this in all probability a moving date wont have been decided. Local removals companies include Fort Box, 6 Hall Rd, London, NW8 9PA Telephone: 020 7148 7000.


Will doing DIY conveyancing save any money?


There are no arguments why a home mover cant take care of he conveyancing without conveyancer in St Johns Wood. That said, a conveyancer juggles a large array of assignments such as chasing any outstanding docs or ensuring the seller is the rightful owner some of which require the relevant training. Above all DIY lawyers are not covered by relevant insurance cover which every legal firms need to pay for.


Is there any comprehensive published record on the upkeep of the conservation areas in St Johns Wood?


Conservation areas in St Johns Wood, such as what can be demolished or ugly shop fronts are handled by the local authority (Westminster).

English Heritage, a government body, have created details in relation to the state of conservation areas as well as the vulnerability to deterioration.


Will we need a chancel search if I am intending to buy in the parish of Greenford?


Regardless of the St Johns Wood parish in which you are buying, the lawyer might recommend that a chancel search be taken out. Although some parish councils have chosen to charge chancel repairs on the current owners, it cannot be guaranteed that a parish where dues have not recently been paid will continue to be unaffected.
