Q.

I am looking for the cheapest conveyancing quote. What do we need to check for?

A.

Many solicitors promote theoretically 'the cheapest conveyancing quotes'. Unfortunately additional fees are frequently hidden in the terms of engagement. Extra charges listed in the solicitor's terms needs to be reasonable and clear. They only apply in cases where the lawyer must complete unanticipated additional work , which could not be anticipated at the start of the process. We offer quotes, not estimates, and clearly state all legal fees you pay for a standard conveyancing transaction.

Q.

As a consequence of the Met Office warn of more intense rain - 15-30% (according to climate change risk in 2012) we are apprehensive that property environmental searches may not be sufficient?

A.

Property environmental searches carried out by the property solicitor in Chigwell will also include the more informative search (Landmark) if the risk warrants it.

If you are anxious why not approach a local resident.

Q.

Our estate agent in Brentwood has suggested a law firm. Should we instruct this firm?

If you choose a conveyancer referred through this route, you your agent may be able to encourage a solicitor to wrap up the process as soon as possible. These referrals must be carefully considered, as the agent may recommend the firm which pays to the largest referral fee, not the best value for you.

Q.

We are looking to be moving from our period residence on the outskirts of Chigwell to a new house in Chelmsford , what is the optimum stage to appoint a home removal company?

A.

The ideal approach is for home movers to avoid arranging a removal firm until such time as all parties have set an absolute date that happens after contracts are signed. Some house removals companies may charge a re booking fee . If you are looking for a local company try Poole Of Loughton, Debden Station/Chigwell La, Loughton, IG10 3TG Call: 020 8508 0123 or Europe Remove, Unit 8 Taylors Gravel La, Chigwell, IG7 6DQ Telephone: 020 85012069.

Q.

I am buying soon and have a conveyancing quote from you. Are there any hidden fees?

A.

Our solicitors do not charge any additional fees for sale or purchase conveyancing. A Homeward Legal quote is an accurate price.

Q.

Should we get a chancel search if we plan to buy in the parish of Broxted?

A.

A Chigwell conveyancing solicitor is likely to recommend a chancel search. In Chigwell's much older areas, chancel repair has the potential to be charged on the owners of a house where Parochial Church Councils have previously chosen not to do so.

Q.

Is lead contamination regularly identified in Chigwell soil?

A.

Chigwell industry, agriculture and the natural environment can cause soil contamination. Various bodies hold data on land contaminants affecting Chigwell, including local authorities.

Q.

Will your Chigwell conveyancing solicitor carry out any property conveyancing searches on the Essex Victorian semi-detached house I am intending to purchase?

A.

Normal legal protocol will be to obtain Local Authority Search, Drainage and Water Search (CON29DW) and Environmental, and possibly area-specific searches for instance Chancel check Search.
