Do I need to get a house surveyor to look into the property purchase?


Homeward Legal recommend that all purchasers book a home surveyor to perform a survey. Numerous issues affect a property. These include ground movement. These will not be reported on by a solicitor.


What do we need to know about fixtures and fittings?


New owners in Blackwall will often be frustrated with the lack of formality around fixtures and fittings. Completion or agreement of a fixtures and fittings form is unfortunately often left to the last minute, when a dispute may jeopordise the transaction.


Which regions of Blackwall are protected by a designated conservation area?


Conservation areas specify areas designated as being of special architectural or historic interest. The lawyer handling your purchase should be able to provide more details and discuss the relevant responsibilities you would be taking on by purchasing in a conservation area.


Does your firm do the conveyancing for auction properties in Blackwall?


Our company is able to act for bidders at auction. Often unusually constructed homes for example those with expensive covenants, are sold in auctions which tend to require extra fact-finding. Solicitors therefore encourage buyers at auction to formally appoint a CQS property lawyer prior to the actual auction for a full review of the sellers documents. Following the auction day itself the lawyer is fully able to concentrate on completing the purchase within the limited time as conventionally required .


I am on a deadline and need guarantee fast conveyancing, what should we guarantee to speed up the transaction?


Essential to faster conveyancing is to use a proactive, diligent lawyer. You should consider:

  • Which communication methods do they use? Days can be wasted waiting for letters in the post which could be emailed or faxed.
