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 the conveyancing solicitor in Barnes order any property conveyancing searches on the London Regency terraced building I want to buy?

A.

If taking out a mortgage the mortgage lender expects at least - Local Authority Search, Drainage and Water Search and Environmental, and perhaps area-specific searches for instance Cheshire Brine Search.

Q.

Is it necessary that I get searches for chancel liability if we are purchasing near parish land in Barnes?

Chancel liability repair costs can run into £100,000s, which owners of affected property will be compelled to pay on demand to the Barnes Church council. Liability has the potential to impact the value of a Barnes property, but an indemnity policy may be available to protect the new owners. The solicitor handling your conveyancing will be able to advise as to whether a chancel search is necessary. Church lands in the area where chancel liability may apply include Holy Trinity, St Mary and St Michael & All Angels.

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 long on average should it take my assigned conveyancer to complete the conveyancing formalities on the lower floor of Regency house?

A.

It can take anywhere from 3 weeks and 12 weeks, which can be affected by any number of factors e.g. the efficiency of the vendor's conveyancing solicitor, or whether your solicitor has to act for your lender. Our highly conveyancing solicitors are extremely focused on speed and communication completing in as little time as achievable.

Q.

What do we need to be aware of if purchasing country house in a Richmond upon Thames planning authority conservation area ?

A.
