Can uranium contaminate Canning Town top-soil?

Q.

I am going to buy with Natwest, what do I need to know?

A.

Purchasers should be aware that, recently, a number of lenders have reduced their 'solicitor panel', resulting in greater legal costs for buyers if their preferred solicitor is unable to act both on their behalf, and for their lender.

For fast legal work to buy a £ 165,000 property, what should we do?

Gazumping takes place when a property owner accepts the 1st buyer's offer, only to reject it in favour of a greater offer. The risk of gazumping is present in any transaction. You should instruct your conveyancing solicitor early, and even before acceptance of an offer to reduce the chance of your transaction being gazumped.

Q.

What are our options if we buy a maisonette in a Newham local authority conservation area ?

A.

Part of conveyancing for buyers includes the making of enquiries of Newham planning authority to find out conservation area status and the required formal approval for any alterations.
