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.

I am going to move out of our semi detached residence in Clapton to our new flat in Homerton , at what stage to instruct a house removal firm?

A.

Most solicitors usually advise that buyers delay until the point where exchange of contracts has occurred as a move date wont have been agreed. As a rule house removals firms might charge a rearrangement fine . Try ASAP, 231 Brooke Rd, London, E5 8AB Phone: 0871 522 1218 or Base To Base Moves, 4 Heyworth Rd, London, E5 8DR Tel: 07949 237071.

Q.

Are the any designated conservation areas in Clapton likely to affect us?

A.

Conservation areas protect neighbourhoods recognised as being of 'special architectural and historic interest'. You may wish to contact the local council if you have specific questions, but your lawyer will investigate this in detail during the conveyancing process.

Q.

The web is full of an abundance of resources all about do it yourself conveyancing e.g. House Buying, Selling and Conveyancing: How to Save Estate Agent and Solicitor Fees When Buying or Selling Property by Joseph Bradshaw and Georgia Bedworth. Do I actually need a Clapton conveyancer ?

A.

In theory there are no reasons why a home buyer cant opt to engage in the legal and technical work on your own. That said, a Clapton conveyancer juggles a long list of actions such as chasing deeds and DS1 documents or checking for any restrictive covenants some of which require a skilled professional. Furthermore solicitors practices are required by the Law Society to pay for suitable insurance to shield you from any professional oversights on the part of the solicitor.

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.

Does a Clapton property solicitor order any searches on the London period detached house I am intending to buy?

A.

If you are taking out a mortgage a mortgage lender expects at least the following for Clapton: Local Authority (council), Drainage Search (Con29DW or personal) and Environmental as well as any less common searches, which might include Index Map Search.
