How do we find affordable conveyancing?


This catches out many home owners, and can leave them paying far more in fees than they budgeted. Many conveyancers purport to offer so-called cheap conveyancing quotes, but additional costs are frequently hidden in small print. Any additional costs found in the terms should be fair.

As a rule the report on title should give information the appropriate Redbridge council tax band.

Conservation are issues like property boundaries, removal of front gardens for parking or vacant buildings etc. are presided over by the local Redbridge planning authority.

We are buying on a Wanstead Flats ex-industrial site. Could the soil be contaminated by industrial waste like cobalt (Co)?


Wanstead Flats industrial or agricultural can cause top-soil contamination. Metal contamination of top-soil in Wanstead Flats is more likely to occur near waste treatment sites. Data on other contaminants, like hazardous gases and groundwater contamination, will also be included in an environmental search.

Will you need a chancel search if I am buying close to a parsonage in Wanstead Flats?


The Law Lords decision in Aston Cantlow (PCC) v Wallbank in 2003 reaffirmed that 'lay impropriators' of property must subsidise church repairs. After the passing of an Act in 2002, interest over any affected land must be registered by October 2013. The solicitor performing your conveyancing will confirm that a chancel search is appropriate.


If I am intending to purchase in the parish of Harrow on the Hill, will we need a chancel search?


Your property solicitor may suggest that a chancel search be taken out, whichever parish where the house being bought is located. Although some parish councils have determined to impose chancel repairs on the current owners of land subject to chancel liability, it is not possible to be certain that a parish where dues have not recently been paid will remain liability-free for new owners.
