Q.

How do I get a discount conveyancing estimate in Charing Cross?

A.

Misleading conveyancing quotes catch out many buyers, leaving them to pay sometimes £100s more than planned. Many solicitors offer theoretically cheap conveyancing, but additional fees are frequently hidden in the solicitor's terms. Any additional costs included in the small print should be fair and clearly defined.

Q.

What kind of flood plain searches in connection with the uncertain risk of possible flooding to properties in Westminster will my Charing Cross property lawyer be able to conduct on a Victorian maisonette I am going to buy?

A.

A solicitor applies for conveyancing and environmental searches that should include Charing Cross flood risk area data. At the time of writing (08/01/13) reports on the Environment Agency do not reveal any flood warnings in Charing Cross.

Q.

We have taken out a quote from you. Will I need to pay any hidden fees?

A.

No. Homeward Legal's solicitors will never charge any additional charges. You should be aware that some solicitor do not give accurate quotes, only estimates, meaning that you could pay much more when you complete.

Q.

Should we use the conveyancing solicitor that works with by the estate agent in Harbury?

A.

The Harbury agent will often recommend a solicitor. However, if they are paid a referral fee, it may be the case that the agent recommends whichever firm pays the most per referral, not a firm with local expertise and a solid reputation.

Q.

Of the main Charing Cross lenders, which firms are on your panel?

A.

Of lenders with offices proximate to Charing Cross, Homeward Legal work beside many. Local mortgage lenders and brokers include St Andrews Financial Services, 1 Pilling Rd, Norwich, NR7 0DL, Your Mortgage Solutions Gorleston Ltd, Georgian Chambers/152 Bells Road, Gorleston, Great Yarmouth, NR31 6AN, and Charles Derby Consultancy, The Exchange/Brick Kiln Road, Hevingham, Norwich, NR10 5NN. Your solicitor can provide more information.

Q.

Which environmental factors can affect land in Charing Cross. Will they be checked for comprehensively?

A.

A broad range of contaminants may impact residential property in Charing Cross, like other land contamination or brine works. An environmental search will give more detail.

Q.

Does the HS2 route affect Stratford-on-Avon District homes?

A.

Yes. HS2 Phase 1 is likely to impact numerous properties in Harbury's local authority. Stratford-on-Avon District Local Authority searches provide HS2 information only if the Harbury property is located within 200m of the proposed route. A specific HS2 search may extend that to 1000m or 5000m, and provide more detail.

Q.

We are intending to purchase a chapel in New Brentford. Will we need a chancel search?

A.

The conveyancing solicitor may suggest a chancel search. Chancel repair can be imposed on the owners of a residence where Parochial Church Councils (PCCs) may have spared previous owners or tenants.
