Q.

I need to find a low cost conveyancing estimate. What do I need to check for?

A.

Many solicitors offer 'the cheapest conveyancing quotes'. Unfortunately extra fees will be included in the terms and conditions that unknowing sellers and buyers have not reviewed Any disbursements must also be stated on a conveyancing quote. Our online quote calculator will generate an accurate quote for your transaction.

Q.

Do we need to make use of the lawyer named by the agent?

A.

It is common for agents in West Ruislip to refer a conveyancing firm. However, if they are paid a referral fee, some agents may 'recommend' the conveyancer who pays out the highest referral fee, not the law firm with the best reputation.

Q.

Why does sale conveyancing legal work require so much time and effort?

A.

Conveyancing in Belgravia will occasionally be held up even in the best of circumstances. The reasons may be out of a solicitor's control. Homeward Legal do our best to minimise their burden by driving the transaction forward. Common delays can include slow third parties such as landlords or managing agents.

Q.

Will I need a chancel search? We are buying in Belgravia.

A.

Potentially amounting to over £100,000 in repair cost obligations, chancel liability should be considered by buyers of Belgravia property likely to be affected. Insurance may be available to protect a buyer should a Belgravia Parochial Church Council enforce liability.

Q.

Having heard about the fact that 2012 was second wettest year since on record I am asking whether conveyancing searches might not be thorough enough?

A.

Your Belgravia property lawyer should also get conveyancing and environmental searches if the first search flags up a local Belgravia flood risk.

For more peace of mind perhaps you could get in touch with a neighbour of the property.

Q.

I plan to purchase a house in the parish of Hanworth. Will a chancel search be compulsory?

A.

A conveyancing solicitor may suggest that a chancel search be taken out. Chancel repair may be imposed on current owners of a property where Parochial Church Councils have previously chosen not to do so. Even if liability is unlikely, indemnity insurance is a sensible precaution.

Q.

In the next month we are intending to move from our period property in Belgravia to our new property in Bayswater , what is the best point to instruct a removal company?

A.

Your solicitor would usually advise that home buyers and sellers hold off booking a removals company until the point where contracts have exchanged as usually an agreed moving date will not have been set. Depending on certain criteria house removals companies add a late cancellation fine

Try Man & Van Belgravia, 85 Eaton Pl, London, SW1X 8DR on 020 3616 0135.

Q.

What does 'fixtures and fittings' mean?

A.

There is not a strict definition of fixtures and fittings, which can often lead to conflict post-completion. The need to clarify this is regularly overlooked, making early agreement of the list of items included with the purchase so essential.
