Q.

I need to find the cheapest conveyancing quote. What do I need to check for?

A.

The lack of clarity surrounding this matter affects many homeowners who opted for a very cheap quote, only to be stung later in the conveyancing process. Many solicitors offer cheap conveyancing quotes. Unfortunately additional costs are often hiding in the terms and conditions. Any costs needs to be fair. Any disbursements must also be stated on the conveyancing quote

Q.

Does Homeward Legal look after the conveyancing of auction properties in Dagenham?

A.

Our firm is familiar with sellers at auction. Usually unusual properties such as those with expensive covenants, are listed in auctions and these require further fact-finding before buying. Solicitors therefore advise that buyers decide on a lawyer before the date of the auction to allow enough time for a review of the legal pack.

Post auction day the lawyer is fully ready for completing the transaction in the usual 28 days as usually required .

Q.

Might our conveyancing costs hide any hidden charges?

A.

We do not charge any extra, hidden fees.

Q.

Is the HS2 line going to impact properties in Coventry District?

A.

Yes. High Speed 2 Phase 1 will impact a range of houses in the local authority of Coventry District. Wolston Properties within 200m of the line will be identified during a search, but disruption, noise and vibration pollution may affect a much wider area.

Q.

If we are buying in Dagenham, will I need a chancel search?

A.

Where land in Dagenham was once owned by a lay-rector, new owners of that property may be obliged to cover the cost of maintenance of a medieval church. Insurance may be available to protect a buyer should a Dagenham Parochial Church Council enforce liability. Ecclesiastical properties in this area include Becontree St Thomas, St Martin, St Martin and Becontree St Cedd.

Q.

My wife and I are buying in Dagenham. Can we verify that the property is in a designated conservation area?

A.

The areas near or within Dagenham will include a range of areas of historic or architectural significance designated as conservation areas. You may wish to contact the local council if you have specific questions, but your solicitor will address this during the house-buying process.

Q.

We have found an abundance of on and offline publications about how to do DIY conveyancing. Do I want to use a Dagenham lawyer for my move?

A.

Hypothetically speaking there is no reason why a buyer cant apply this approach and complete the bulk of the legal work yourself.

The truth is however that a Dagenham property solicitor takes care of a long list of actions ranging from interpreting replies to enquiries or ensuring warranties are transferable many of which are better done by someone with a qualified professional.

Q.

Which local authority is responsible for Dagenham?

A.

Dagenham is located in London Borough of Barking and Dagenham Council, Civic Centre, Rainham Road North, Dagenham, RM10 7BN, contact: 020 8215 3000
