We need to find low cost conveyancing in Upminster. What do I need to check for?


Both high-street and online solicitors offer supposedly cheap conveyancing quotes. Unfortunately additional costs may inflate your final invoice. Our quotes are not estimates, stating all the solicitors fees you will pay for a standard sale or purchase.


Is it important that I get a chancel search? We are purchasing a Upminster residence next to a church.


Property owners in Upminster may be subject to chancel repair liability. Owners who have bought property prior to 2003 may be totally unaware that a liability exists if a chancel search was not carried out. Your solicitor can provide more details. Church lands in the local area where chancel liability may apply include Hornchurch St Matthew, North Ockendon St Mary Magdalene and St Laurence.


What will the council tax cost on a buy to let Band F flat in Upminster?


Your pertinent band will conventionally be reported within the conveyancer's title report along with the local authority. The latest council tax charges for homes in Upminster are detailed online at the Havering council site. Currently on 26 December 2012 band rates are:

  • Band A - £1,001.00
  • Band B - £1,168.00
  • Band C - £1,335.00
  • Band D - £1,502.00
  • Band E - £1,836.00
  • Band F - £2,169.00
  • Band G - £2,503.00
  • Band H - £3,004.00


I have taken out a quote from you. Could we need to pay any hidden fees?


No. We will not charge any additional costs for standard conveyancing legal work. Our conveyancing quotes offer an single, accurate price.


In a few weeks I am anticipating to be finally moving out of our semi detached residence in Upminster into our new home in Rainham at what point to instruct a home removal company?


It is prudent to is to put off making arrangements with the removals until everyone has agreed a formal date which occurs after contracts are signed. There are many local and national companies including Patchetts Removals Ltd, Movers House Front Lane, Upminster, RM14 1XL on 01708 224968 or Patchetts Removals Ltd, Movers House/Front Lane, Upminster, RM14 1XL Phone: 01708 224968.


We are buying in Upminster on a newly development brownfield site. Could the topsoil be contaminated by industrial waste like vanadium (V)?


Upminster industrial or agricultural can cause soil contamination. Land may also be contaminated by other sources, including water contaminants such as household chemicals.


Do you recommend taking precautions to get out of paying out for stamp duty to the Revenue?


Stamp duty is usually payable for property purchases over £125,000. Homeward Legal firmly advise against any stamp duty scheme, because these schemes are highly expensive and very risky.


What do I need to be aware of if we acquire a property inside a Havering local authority conservation area ?


An integral part of the due diligence for buyers includes carrying out searches of the Havering authority to determine conservation area status and the existence of consent for any changes. In the event that no local authority consents be produced, your solicitor will advise you of the alternatives which may include obtaining an indemnity insurance policy or obtaining retrospective consent from the planning authority.
