Q.

How do we get the best conveyancing rates for a £147k house?

A.

Both high-street and online law firms advertise theoretically 'the cheapest conveyancing'. Unfortunately additional charges will be included in the small print. This small print is often not read by home owners in a hurry.

Q.

Does homewardlegal.co.uk conduct the conveyancing for auction properties in Earlsfield?

A.

Our company is very competent with sellers at auction. Our auction team conveyancers have been instructed by numerous buyers at local Earlsfield property auctions including Acuitus, Allsop (Commercial), Allsop (Residential), Auction House London, Award Property, Barnett Ross, Baxtons, Brendons Auctioneers, Countrywide Property Auctions and Drivers Norris.

Very often hard to value houses for example building plots, are bought at auction and these want greater review. Lawyers therefore suggest bidders to formally appoint the conveyancing firm prior to the day of the auction so there is time for a detailed review.

Subsequently, following the auction day your experienced lawyer is absolutely ready for finishing all of the legal work within a month as required by the terms if sale.

Q.

How early do you need to arrange a conveyancer?

A.

Whether buying or selling, the earlier in the process you can instruct a conveyancing firm, the better, as conveyancing

involves several tasks that can be performed immediately. Some groups advocate holding off instruction until the offer is accepted, but doing so will put you at a disadvantage compared to better prepared buyers, or if your buyer decides to pull out due to delays.

Q.

Should we be worried about gazumping?

A.

This describes circumstances where a seller approves a lower offer, then rejects it, choosing instead a better offer. Although being gazumped is less common in a declining market, there will always be a danger. The first step in reducing the chance that gazumping will effect you is to instruct a law firm early, and even before acceptance of an offer.

Q.

I am intending to buy an Edwardian terraced house. Do we need 'conveyancing searches'?

A.

Searches are a standard set of enquiries ordered in the interest of the purchaser, for example a commons registration search. Buyers must consider that, searches deal with facets affecting the legal title.

Q.

Which local factors can impact land in Earlsfield. Are they a concern?

A.

Land may be contaminated by a range of naturally-occurring factors, and an environmental search should reveal whether a specific plot of land could be affected by contaminants including landfill sites or other sources of contaminated land.

Q.

Should we employ a conveyancing named by the estate agent in Leyton?

A.

An agent will be able to pressure a conveyancer they refer many clients to, and can therefore exert pressure on a solicitor to complete sooner. However, if the agent is paid a fee by the solicitor, some agents may 'recommend' the solicitor willing to pay the highest referral fee, not a firm with local expertise and a solid reputation.

Q.

The internet has collections of on and offline handbooks going into great depth on DIY conveyancing. Do I really need a Earlsfield solicitor for my home move?

A.

It can certainly possible for you to handle the your own conveyancing unaided. The truth is however that a Earlsfield conveyancer is in charge of a significant number of exercises ranging from chasing notices/share certificates and maintaining constant communication with agents most of which need a qualified professional. Furthermore legal practices are required to carry the correct professional indemnity insurance to insulate you in the event of any failures made by the lawyer.
