Q.

How do I get low cost conveyancing?

A.

Several firms purport to offer supposedly 'the cheapest conveyancing quotes'. Unfortunately extra costs are frequently hidden in small print. These terms are often ignored by excited homeowners, eager to get underway. Additional fees ought to be clearly defined. Third party costs, termed disbursements, to be paid must also be stated on your conveyancing quote. Homeward Legal quotes offer a clear statement of your legal fees for a standard conveyancing transaction.

Q.

It seems that tin (Sn) soil contamination may be an issue in Aldermanbury. Please advise.

A.

Given the history of industry and agriculture in parts of Aldermanbury, soil contamination is difficult to avoid. Data on many contaminants, such as groundwater contaminants like sewage, will be included in an environmental search.

Q.

What average time will it take my assigned conveyancing solicitor to exchange the conveyancing process for a semi detached house?

A.

The process can take anywhere from 3 weeks and 12 weeks, which can be affected by a number of issues e.g. the speed of the seller's conveyancing solicitor, or the time taken to issue draft contracts.

Our highly lawyers are exceptionally focused on communication exchanging in as short a time as realistically possible.

Q.

Do I need to get a chancel search if my family are purchasing a apartment by parsonage grounds in Aldermanbury?

A.

The result of Aston Cantlow (PCC) v Wallbank reaffirmed that 'lay rectors' of property must pay for church repairs. Insurance may be available to protect a buyer should a Aldermanbury Parochial Church Council enforce liability.

Q.

I plan to buy a property in Ruislip. Is a chancel search needed?

A.

The property solicitor could advise that a chancel search is taken out, whichever parish in which the home being purchased is located. Although some Parochial Church Councils (PCCs) have chosen to charge chancel repairs on the current owners of land subject to chancel liability, a solicitor cannot state with certainty that a parish where dues have not recently been paid will not automatically be the case for future owners. Even if liability is unlikely, indemnity insurance is a sensible precaution.

Q.

Conveyancing searches (environmental) are calculated from archived data but when one considers recent events e g the fact that 2012 was second wettest year since records began, are they still appropriate to ascertain sufficient information about the Aldermanbury future flood risk?

A.

A competent Aldermanbury conveyancing solicitor will advise you to apply for flood searches if the environmental searches spots a Aldermanbury flood risk.

Sometimes property buyers to contact a neighbour or local resident for that added local information.

Q.

Do I need to use the firm of solicitors referred by our estate agent?

A.

Agent referrals are a common practice route to find a solicitor. These referrals must be carefully considered, as there is a risk that an agent may choose the solicitor willing to pay the highest referral fee, not the best solicitor for your needs.
