Q.

We need low cost conveyancing. as we are on a budget.

A.

Both high-street and online solicitors promote cheap conveyancing. Unfortunately extra costs may be added into small print. Costs found in the terms should be reasonable. They come into force only if your conveyancer must complete unanticipated additional work for you, which could not be anticipated at the start of the process. The Homeward Legal quote calculator will confirm the exact legal fees based on the property you are buying.

Q.

How long on average does it take my conveyancer to conclude all of the legal work for the lower floor of house we are purchasing?

A.

The conveyancing process can take anywhere from 3 weeks and twelve weeks depending on any number of issues such as the speed of the seller's conveyancing solicitor, or whether the property is leasehold, Freehold or share of freehold. Our chosen conveyancing solicitors are exceptionally focused on pushing transactions through and endeavour towards completing the legal process as quickly as realistically possible.

Q.

Why does sale conveyancing work require weeks?

A.

The legal work required to buy or sell a property can experience delays even where there is no chain. Some reasons are beyond the solicitor's influence, we, however, do our best to reduce their burden whenever it is feasible. Reasons for delay can include the time taken to return management information.

Q.

We are intending to purchase a rectory in Shoreditch. Will it be necessary to get a chancel search?

A.

Whichever Chadwell Heath parish you are buying in, a conveyancing lawyer might recommend a chancel search. Although some parish councils have decided to exact chancel repairs on owners, it cannot be guaranteed that a parish where chancel repair fees have not been paid previously will continue to be free from liability. Even if liability is unlikely, indemnity insurance is a sensible precaution.

Q.

Is contaminated land a concern in Chadwell Heath?

A.

Land would be contaminated by several natural causes, such as other land contamination and proximity to scrap yards. An environmental search will give more information. Contamination in Chadwell Heath can be caused by local waste sites, such as Fairlop Quarry, Hainault Road, Essex, RM6 5SS.

Q.

Is there a danger that our offer may be gazumped?

A.

This arises when a seller accepts the 1st buyer's offer and then rejects it, selecting instead a greater offer. It could occur weeks into a sale. There is almost always a chance of being gazumped. To reduce the likelihood of being gazumped, consider instructing an efficient solicitor as early as possible.

Q.

What is the council tax on a Forties end of terrace home in Chadwell Heath?

A.

Normally a conveyancer's title report will contain the Redbridge council tax band. The latest council tax rates for properties in Chadwell Heath are set out on the Redbridge local authority website. At the time of writing on 22 January 2013 the rates are:

  • Band A - £935.00
