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.

Is the High Speed 2 line going to impact property in Stratford-on-Avon District?

A.

Yes, HS2 will affect some houses in Earlswood, and some residents along the route may suffer significant disruption during HS2's construction.

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.

Q.

Where can we learn more info on the conservation areas in Clapton and Clapton?

A.

Local Clapton conservation area issues e.g. paths, the addition of stone cladding or plastic box signs are handled by the local authority (Waltham Forest). Following a campaign, English Heritage have created records of the state of repair of conservation areas in Clapton and across England.

Q.

Which of the lender panels in Clapton are you on?

A.

Homeward Legal have worked with all the major lenders assisting purchasers in Clapton. Lenders and mortgage specialists in Clapton include Timson Mortgages, 11 Pearson St, London, E2 8JD, R P G, 65 Redchurch St, London, E2 7DJ, and Fidelity Corporate Services, Great Eastern St, London, EC2A 3JF. The solicitor managing the legal work for your move can give more detail.

Q.

My estate agent has named a lawyer which they often use. Do we need to use them?

A.

Many estate agents will have a referral arrangement with solicitors whereby they refer work. Such referrals need to be weighed up against alternatives, as an agent may select the conveyancer who pays out the highest referral fee, not the best solicitor for your needs.

Q.

We are intending to purchase a house in Heston. Will a chancel search be important?

A.

Your lawyer should confirm that a chancel search is ordered. Although some Parochial Church Councils have determined to charge chancel repairs on the current owners of affected property, it is not possible to be certain that a parish where repair costs have not been paid before will remain liability-free for new owners. For property in the parish of Heston, it is not safe to rely on the historical behaviour of the parish council alone as a guide.
