Q.

We are trying to find an affordable Canning Town conveyancing quote. What do I need to check for?

A.

Lack of clarity over this topic catches out many buyers and sellers, and can leave them paying far more in conveyancing fees than they budgeted, and many firms claim to offer 'the cheapest conveyancing quotes'. Often extra charges can increase the solicitor's invoice. The online quote calculator can generate an accurate statement of the legal fees for the property you plan to buy.

Q.

How much is the council tax on a residential detached property in Canning Town?

A.

More often than not the conveyancer's title report should provide the relevant Newham council tax band. Council tax charges for Canning Town are listed on the Newham local authority website. At the time of writing on 10/11/2012 rates are:

  • Band A - £835.00

Q.

We are intending to buy a chapel in the parish of Harefield. Is a chancel search specified?

A.

Your conveyancing solicitor may suggest a chancel search. In Canning Town's much older areas, chancel repair can be imposed on the current owners of a residence where parish councils have previously chosen not to do so. In the event that chancel liability may apply, your solicitor might recommend insurance rather than pulling out of the purchase.

Q.

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

A.

As is often reported, moving faster is crucial to instruct a proactive and experienced property lawyer. There are, however, numerous things you could do. These include:

  • responding to your property lawyer by phone, fax or email wherever possible
  • arranging your mortgage offer
  • contacting your property lawyer regularly

Q.

Does homewardlegal.co.uk conduct the conveyancing for auction properties in Canning Town?

A.

Yes - Our company is used to working with property auction procedures. Regularly difficult to value buildings e. g. barn conversions, are purchased in property auctions which tend to want added fact-finding. We therefore suggest that buyers at auction formally appoint a CQS conveyancing company in advance of the auction for a thorough investigation.

Immediately following the actual auction your lawyer is utterly ready for concluding the conveyancing in the reduced time frame as usually required .

Q.

What factors can affect land in Canning Town. Will they be checked for thoroughly?

A.

A broad range of contaminants could impact land in Canning Town. Issues such as potentially contaminative use of nearby land will be investigated during the conveyancing process.

Q.

Do you work with many lenders with Canning Town offices?

A.

Our solicitors have experience working with many lenders.
