Q.

We need low cost conveyancing. What are the risks?

A.

Many solicitors advertise cheap conveyancing. Unfortunately additional charges will be included in the small print which unwary home owners fail to check. Any disbursements must also be stated on the quote Any extra costs needs to be fair and be applied only where your solicitor must complete additional work , which could not be anticipated at the start of the process. Homeward Legal quotes offer a clear statement of your legal fees for a standard conveyancing transaction.

Q.

Would arranging a building survey be required when we are purchasing a home in Clapton?

A.

It is strongly advised that all purchasers in Clapton arrange a home surveyor. There can be many defects that have a negative impact on a property, which will not be addressed during a property valuation, which include cavity wall tie failure or dry rot.

Q.

What are the issues if we buy a period house in a Hackney planning authority designated conservation area ?

A.

Part of the property legal involves procurement of searches of Waltham Forest local authority to verify conservation area status and the appropriate consent for any developments. In the absence of any appropriate consents, your solicitor will recommend the best alternatives, which include obtaining from the planning authority or obtaining an indemnity insurance policy.

Q.

Can Clapton brownfield land soil still be contaminated?

A.

Clapton industry and natural causes can cause soil contamination. Data on many contaminants, such as groundwater

contaminants like pesticides and organohalides, will be included in an environmental search.

Q.

How many weeks does it take the conveyancing solicitor to get through the conveyancing formalities on a flat in a property we are intending to buy in Clapton?

A.

The conveyancing process can take anywhere between a month and 3 months, which can be affected by various factors like the speed of the vendor's property lawyer, or whether additional searches are required.

Our property solicitors are extremely results driven exchanging in as short a time as we can.

Q.

What sort of research in relation to the potential risk of possible flooding in the Hackney area will a lawyer in Clapton look over on a Victorian home we are buying?

A.

A property lawyer makes an application for standard property conveyancing searches that should include Clapton flood risk data. A substantially more involved dedicated flood risk search, such as the Landmark search, may possibly be suggested by a qualified conveyancing solicitor in Clapton if in the event that the environmental search identify a risk of flooding. A recent check (24-Dec-12) there were no warnings around the Severn Estuary at Oldbury-on-Severn, Northwick and Avonmouth at the Riverside locations and roads between Winsham and Axminster, including Chard Junction, Coaxden Cottages and Weycroft
