Q.

I am trying to find the cheapest conveyancing solicitors in Cubitt Town. because we are on a limited budget.

A.

The confusion over what is, and is not, included in a 'cheap' quote leaves many buyers paying out more than they anticipated in the end. Many law firms claim to offer 'the cheapest conveyancing quotes', but extra fees are often hiding in the terms of engagement. Busy, stressed buyers ignore these terms at their peril. We offer quotes, not estimates, and clearly state all legal fees you pay for a standard conveyancing transaction.

Q.

I am intending to purchase a barn conversion in the parish of Ickenham. Will a chancel search be required?

A.

Regardless of the Cubitt Town parish in which you are purchasing, the lawyer could advise that a chancel search is ordered. Chancel repair has the potential to be charged on current owners of a house where church councils have previously chosen not to do so, so it can be difficult to use this as a guide.

Q.

What kind of local environmental searches into the uncertain risk of a flood at Tower Hamlets will the conveyancer in Cubitt Town be able to carry out for a seventies property I am buying?

A.

A qualified property lawyer makes an application for standard property environmental searches, which include Cubitt Town flood risk information.

Q.

For our lender, we have chosen Accord Mortgages Ltd - what will I need to be aware of?

A.

Traditionally, solicitors could carry out mortgage-related work for most lenders. Some lenders are now reducing the size of their 'solicitor panel', potentially creating increased legal costs for purchasers. Homeward Legal, however, are able to act for many lenders to keep legal costs to a minimum.

Q.

Could my conveyancing for my Cubitt Town purchase introduce any extra costs?

A.

Our solicitors do not hide any additional fees. Some solicitor do not give accurate quotes, only estimates, which they will not be required to adhere to.

Q.

Should we use the property lawyer offered by our estate agent?

A.

An agent may recommend a law firm to handle your conveyancing, however, these referrals need to be weighed up against alternatives, including online or local firms, as some agents may 'recommend' the conveyancer who pays out the highest referral fee, not the most suitable for you.

Q.

How long should it take my property solicitor to conduct the legal work on a semi detached property?

A.

The process can take anywhere from 3 weeks and 3 months, which can be hampered by any number of issues, like the efficiency of the vendor's conveyancing solicitor, or the turnaround of searches.

Q.

How much is the council tax on a Forties end of terrace home in Cubitt Town?

A.
