Q.

Are additional fees applied? I need a fixed rate conveyancing estimate.

A.

Many online and high street conveyancers claim to offer so-called cheap conveyancing quotes. Unfortunately additional charges may be added into the solicitor's terms of engagement, left unread by preoccupied home owners Any extra fees which are listed in the terms should be clearly defined. The disbursements to be paid should be included on the conveyancing quote. Our quotes clearly state the solicitors' fees for a standard conveyancing transaction.

Q.

Does your firm manage auction conveyancing in Barnes?

A.

Homeward Legal is highly experienced with residential property auction procedures. Quite often unusually constructed houses for example structurally defective property, are listed in auctions which need deeper. Conveyancers therefore strongly suggest that auction buyers decide on a their chosen lawyer before the property auction date to allow time for a review of the documents.

Subsequently, following the actual auction your conveyancing lawyer is completely able to concentrate on swiftly completing the legal side of things in 28 days as required .

Q.

I am intending to buy a house in North Audley Street. Is a chancel search appropriate?

A.

Whether you are buying a home in Barnes or elsewhere in the county, the solicitor should confirm that a chancel search be ordered. Through some church councils have taken the decision to exact chancel repairs on the current owners of land subject to chancel liability, it cannot be guaranteed that a parish where repair costs have not been paid before, that this will not be so in future, so the solicitor will be unable to make any guarantees, and will recommend insurance.

Q.

My estate agent has referred the conveyancing solicitor whom they usually use. Must we use this solicitor?

A.

Many agents will have a referral arrangement with solicitors where they refer clients to them. Such referrals need to be considered carefully, as there is a risk that an agent may choose the firm which pays to the largest referral fee, not the most appropriate choice.

Q.

Is contaminated land a concern in Barnes?

A.

Land could be contaminated by a range of natural and human-influenced issues. Issues such as brine works should be reported on during conveyancing searches.

Q.

How much will our searches be?

A.

With Homeward Legal's conveyancing service, clients are charged at a maximum £249 for Barnes searches.

Q.

We are buying in Barnes on a new development brownfield site. Is the top-soil likely to be contaminated?

A.

Effort is made throughout Barnes to identify and remediate soil contamination. Also considering issues such as water contaminants such as oil, contaminants affecting Barnes property will be factored into an environmental search.

Q.

How do I avoid being gazumped?

A.

This describes circumstances where a property seller acknowledges an offer, then refuses it, choosing instead a better offer. The chance of getting gazumped is present in any transaction. The first step in reducing the chance that gazumping will effect you is to instruct a proactive solicitor as soon as you can.
