Q.

How do we find a discount conveyancing quote?

A.

Both high-street and online conveyancers claim to offer cheap conveyancing quotes, however additional costs can inflate your solicitor's invoice. Any additional charges ought to be fair and clearly defined. Any disbursements to be paid ought to be listed on a Ealing conveyancing quote. Our quotes are not estimates, stating all the solicitors fees you will pay for a standard sale or purchase.

Q.

What average time should it take my assigned conveyancing solicitor to exchange contracts the legal work for a maisonette in a house we want to buy?

A.

The conveyancing process can take anywhere from a month to 12 weeks dependent on any number of factors such as the speed of the seller's conveyancer, or the speed of the lender.

Q.

Will our property legal fees for our purchase in Ealing cover any additional charges?

A.

No. Our solicitors do not charge any hidden extra fees. Some firms only provide estimates disguised as quotes. The final bill you receive may be much more.

Q.

Which factors can contaminate land in Ealing, and are they comprehensively investigated?

A.

Residential property may have been contaminated by a broad range of human activities, such as coal mining and radioactive substances in the region. An environmental search will offer more detail.

Q.

What can I do to defer paying for stamp duty on the property?

A.

Stamp duty commonly must be paid on residential property priced at over one hundred and twenty-five thousand pounds. We do not recommend any form of stamp duty scheme. These schemes are expensive and , if a scheme is challenged, you can be fined up to 100% of the amount owed, in additional to the tax itself. There have been a range of legitimate initiatives, however, such as relief for buyers in 'disadvantaged areas'. A conveyancing solicitor should confirm whether you are eligible.

Q.

Will the Ealing conveyancer order any property on the London period end-of-terrace bungalow I am buying?

A.

If purchasing and getting a mortgage the mortgage lender expects particular searches, including the following Local Authority, Drainage and Water Search (CON29DW or personal) and Environment Search,, and possibly area-specific searches, which might include Cheshire Brine Search.

Q.

Could Ealing topsoil be contaminated by copper?

A.

Ealing and the surrounding region has a legacy of chemical contamination. Environment search results will factor contaminants, including metals and others such as fertilisers and water contaminants such as bleach.

Q.

What is gazumping?

A.

This takes place when a buyer's offer is rejected, following initial acceptance, by the owner, opting instead for a greater offer. Though gazumping is uncommon when property prices are falling, there is still a risk. Instructing a conveyancing solicitor early, and even before acceptance of an offer should help to mitigate this risk.
