Are additional fees applied? I am looking for fixed rate West Drayton conveyancing.


The confusion over this point catches out many buyers, and can leave them paying far more in fees than they budgeted, and many law firms promote 'the cheapest conveyancing', but additional costs are frequently hidden in the solicitor's terms of engagement. These terms are often ignored by excited buyers, eager to get underway. Extra costs listed in the solicitor's terms needs to be reasonable and only be applied if the conveyancer must perform additional tasks for you, which could not be anticipated at the start of the process.

Should we order a chancel search if we plan to purchase in the parish of Pitchcott, near West Drayton?


A lawyer might recommend a chancel search, whichever parish in which the residence being purchased is located. In West Drayton's much older areas, chancel repair may be apportioned on the current owners of a residence where Parochial Church Councils may have spared previous owners or tenants, so the solicitor will be unable to make any guarantees, and will recommend insurance.


In respect of the Met Office projecting more intense rainfall in the future we are thinking that flood searches aren't detailed enough?


A good West Drayton conveyancing solicitor will get property conveyancing searches if the standard search spots a any kind of local West Drayton flood risk.

For extra history it may be prudent to converse with a close neighbour.


How can I protect the purchase from being gazumped?


Gazumping occurs when a seller acknowledges the first buyer's offer and then rejects it, selecting instead a higher offer. Although being gazumped is less common in a declining market, there will always be a risk. Consider instructing a conveyancing solicitor early, and even before acceptance of an offer to reduce the chance of your offer being gazumped.


What do I need to be aware of when buying a terraced house in a Hillingdon council designated conservation area ?


An integral part of conveyancing for purchasers includes the application for searches of the Hillingdon authority to verify conservation area status and the existence of consent for any developments. .


Is simultaneous exchange and completion a disbursement or fee?


It may not be obvious if a cost is a disbursement or fee. This cost is a fee not a disbursement. It should be included in a quote.


How early should you get a solicitor?


The straightforward answer is, the earlier, the better, as conveyancing involves several tasks that can be performed very early in the process. Prompt instruction of a solicitor to act for you on your West Drayton transaction could mitigate the chance of the sale or purchase aborting.


I am interested in purchasing a house in West Drayton. Can we verify that the house is in a conservation area?


Conservation areas recognise neighbourhoods of 'special architectural and historic interest'. Living in a conservation area can mean preservation of an area's historic charm, but the restrictions create additional maintenance and repair responsibilities. A solicitor will discuss what specific restrictions are in place.
