Q.

Although there are lots of £99 fixed quotes online, how do we find a reputable one? I am trying to find an affordable conveyancing quote.

A.

Misleading conveyancing quotes catch out many buyers and sellers, leaving them to pay sometimes £100s more than planned. Many law firms claim to offer so-called 'the cheapest conveyancing quotes'. Often additional costs are often hiding in the solicitor's terms, left unread by preoccupied buyers and sellers Applicable disbursements should also be clearly stated on your quote Any fees which are listed in terms and conditions ought to be fair and clearly defined and only apply in cases where the lawyer is required to complete unexpected extra work in your interest, 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.

We are buying on a Chinatown former industrial site. Is the top-soil likely to be contaminated by waste minerals like tin?

A.

Soil contamination is regularly tested. Also considering issues such as water contaminants such as petrol and perchlorate, contaminants affecting Chinatown property will be factored into an environmental search.

Q.

As a consequence of the fact that 2012 was second wettest year since records began we are worried that property environmental searches won't be exacting enough?

A.

Your property lawyer in Chinatown will include flood searches from Landmark if the standard conveyancing searches flag up any kind of risk of flooding in Chinatown.

For more area background might be able to contact a neighbour or local resident.

Q.

Conveyancers in Chinatown order necessary searches when acting for a purchaser, but which actual searches?

A.

When you are obtaining a mortgage the mortgage lender requires you to at least specific searches, including these searches - Local Authority (personal or official), Drainage and Water Search (CON29DW or personal) and Environment Search and occasionally special local Chinatown searches for instance Contaminated land Search.

Q.

We are intending to purchase with National Westminster Bank - is there anything we need to be aware of?

A.

Buyers should be aware that a small number of lenders are now limiting the firms who can act for them, resulting in increased legal costs for buyers if the lender insists upon their own lawyer . We, though, will act for most lenders in the UK, keeping buyers' legal costs to a minimum.

Q.

How much can fee for my conveyancing searches total?

A.

The cost of conveyancing searches will vary considerably. They are disbursements.

Q.

Myself and my partner are buying in Chinatown, and would like to check that there are many areas of conservation.

A.

With over 9,000 such areas listed throughout England, the areas in or near Chinatown will include numerous conservation areas. Your solicitor will be able to provide more details and confirm potential liability for unauthorised works, regarding specific conservation areas in Chinatown.

Q.

Is there some free record on the conservation areas in Chinatown?

A.

Conservation area concerns like building materials, rear extensions or vacant buildings are handled by Westminster.

English Heritage, a government body, have conducted a survey and created a list of the condition of conservation areas.
