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. Your Earlsfield conveyancing quote must also state any disbursements.Get a quote using the Homeward Legal quote calculator for the property you are buying.

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.

If we are purchasing near Earlsfield, in the parish of Brompton, do we need a chancel search?

A.

Your solicitor may suggest that a chancel search be taken out, irrespective of the parish in which the residence being purchased is located. In older areas of Earlsfield, chancel repair may be apportioned on owners of a residence where Parochial Church Councils have previously chosen not to do so. Even if liability is unlikely, indemnity insurance is a sensible precaution.

Q.

If you are buying a Earlsfield home near a glebe, will we need to get a chancel liability search?

A.

Repair costs resulting from chancel liability can total hundreds of thousands of pounds. Insurance may be available to protect a buyer should a Earlsfield Parochial Church Council enforce liability. Ecclesiastical properties in Earlsfield which may give rise to chancel liability include St Andrew's Church and St John the Divine.

Q.

Are there any conservation areas in the area?

A.

Parts of Earlsfield considered be of architectural merit, like model housing estates, may be designated as conservation areas. Your property solicitor will be able to offer more information, in regard to relevant conservation area restrictions in Earlsfield.

Q.

To complete on our property purchase ASAP, how do we aim for a fast completion in Earlsfield?

A.

Key to faster conveyancing is to employing a experienced conveyancer. There are, however, several things you, as the purchaser, could do to get moving sooner, such as, encouraging your conveyancer to carry out searches promptly, replying to your conveyancer by phone, fax or email and arranging any finances require to complete the purchase.

Q.

What sort of exploration in relation to the potential risk of floods at Wandsworth will the property solicitor in Earlsfield report on?

A.

Your conveyancer will carry out property environmental searches that will include Earlsfield historical flood risk data. On (16-Jul-12) there were no warnings around the River Wandle at Wandsworth at the River Wandle Catchment in the London Boroughs of Wandsworth, Merton, Lambeth, Croydon and Sutton
