Q.

I am looking for fixed rate Canary Wharf conveyancing. Will I get a quote or and estimate?

A.

Several solicitors purport to offer supposedly cheap conveyancing, however extra fees may be added into the solicitor's terms of engagement. Excited buyers, eager to get underway, often ignore this small print when they instruct. Extras should be fair. Our quotes clearly state all legal fees for a standard conveyancing transaction.

Q.

How is Canary Wharf contaminated land identified when buying a house?

A.

Residential property in Canary Wharf will be contaminated by a range of factors caused by man and by nature, and an environmental search should reveal if a house is affected by local contaminants like potentially contaminative use of nearby land.

Q.

Does anybody hold any comprehensive information on the standard of Canary Wharf conservation areas?

A.

Conservation area matters such as public spaces or street posts are administered by the local authority (Tower Hamlets). English Heritage, a government body, have put together records of the condition of conservation areas.

Q.

Is a drainage search a disbursement or fee?

A.

It may not be obvious whether a quoted cost is a fee or disbursement. This charge, for example, is a disbursement not a fee, and is passed on at cost.

Q.

What are our options if we acquire a property located inside a Tower Hamlets council conservation area ?

A.

An integral part of conveyancing for purchasers includes ordering of LLC1 searches of Tower Hamlets local authority to confirm conservation area status and the appropriate formal approval for any alterations. Local Authority searches are charged at cost to the buyer.

Q.

The agent has referred the property lawyer. Should we instruct this firm?

A.

Many estate agents have arrangements with solicitors where they refer clients. However, if the agent is paid a fee by the solicitor, there is a risk that an agent may choose the firm which pays to the largest referral fee, not the most appropriate choice.

Q.

What causes the purchase conveyancing process to be so delayed?

A.

Conveyancing could take more time than budgeted, Homeward Legal, however, seek to reduce their cost by pushing all parties involved. Common delays may include waiting for responses from third parties.

Q.

May our property legal fees have any hidden costs?

A.

We do not charge any extra, hidden charges. Our conveyancing quotes offer an honest and accurate fee.
