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.

Do we need a chancel search when we are purchasing in Canary Wharf?

A.

In Canary Wharf, where land was once owned by a lay rectors, new owners of that property may be obliged to cover the cost of maintenance of a medieval church. Indemnity policies can be arranged if chancel liability is likely to be enforced. The solicitor carrying out the legal work for your move will confirm that a chancel search is appropriate.

Q.

Britannia is our lender, is there anything we need to check?

A.

Buyers should be aware that some lenders have reduced their 'solicitor panel'. For buyers, this can result in significantly increased conveyancing costs. Homeward Legal can act on behalf of the vast majority of CML-approved lenders to keep legal costs to a minimum.

Q.

What length of time does it take my designated lawyer to get through the legal work for a flat in a period house we want to buy?

A.

The conveyancing process can take anywhere from 1 month to 3 months, which can be hampered by a number of factors such as the efficiency of the vendor's conveyancing solicitor, or contentious issues that may arise. Our highly solicitors are focused on communication completing the legal process in as short a time as realistically possible.

Q.

How many mortgage lenders in Canary Wharf do you work with?

A.

Homeward Legal have worked with the bulk of lenders approved by the Council of Mortgage Lenders. A number of mortgage specialists operate in Canary Wharf, including HSBC Bank, 8 Canada Sq, London, E14 5HQ. The Canary Wharf solicitor handling the work for your sale or purchase can advise further.

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.

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.
