Q.

We are trying to find an affordable Becontree conveyancing quote. Can you assist?

A.

Various property lawyers advertise cheap conveyancing. Unfortunately extra charges will be included in the terms and conditions that unknowing homeowners have not reviewed Third party costs, termed disbursements, to be paid must also be stated on the quote Any extra costs found in the small print should be clearly defined and only come into force where the lawyer must complete unanticipated additional work , which could not be anticipated at the start of the process. The online quote calculator can generate an accurate statement of the legal fees for the property you plan to buy.

Q.

Do we need a chancel search if I plan to purchase in the parish of Chelsea, near Becontree?

A.

Your conveyancer could advise a chancel search, regardless of the parish where the house being bought is located. Chancel repair may be imposed on the owners of a house where Parochial Church Councils may have not done so in the past. Even if liability is unlikely, indemnity insurance is a sensible precaution.

Q.

Is there anything I can do to hold off paying SDLT?

Stamp duty mitigation is not recommended for purchases in Becontree, as such schemes are costly and can be very unlikely to succeed. There have been several official schemes, such as higher thresholds for first-time buyers.

Q.

It seems that nickel (Ni) soil contamination may be an issue in Becontree. Please advise.

A.

Most soils in Becontree have some degree of contamination, from agriculture or industry. Metal contamination of soil in Becontree is more likely to occur near disused factories or waste management sites. Data on other contaminants, like food-processing waste, will also be included in an environmental search.

Q.

Should we be worried about gazumping?

A.

Gazumping occurs when a seller accepts an offer, only to dismiss it, opting for a greater offer. The risk of getting gazumped is present in any transaction. To reduce the likelihood of being gazumped, consider instructing a proactive solicitor early.

Q.

What length of time should I expect it to take the conveyancer to conclude all of the conveyancing work on a maisonette in a recently developed house we are intending to purchase?

A.

Completion can take anywhere from a month to three months, contingent on various issues e.g. the efficiency of the vendor's property lawyer, or whether additional searches are required.

Q.

We are planning to buy with Halifax - what do we need to know?
