Q.

I am looking for a discount conveyancing quote. How do I get a quote?

A.

Numerous law firms advertise supposedly 'the cheapest conveyancing quotes', but extra charges may increase your solicitor's invoice. Any additional charges listed in the terms should be clearly defined. Your East Sheen conveyancing quote should, in addition, define any disbursements.

Q.

Does a East Sheen conveyancing solicitor conduct any property searches on the London thirties mid terrace flat we are buying?

A.

When applying for a mortgage lender will expect at least the following for East Sheen: Local Authority (personal or official), Drainage Search (Con29DW) and Environment Search and perhaps specific searches, which may include a Cheshire Brine Search.

Q.

Should I get a building survey?

A.

The Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors suggest that buyers book a surveyor when you plan to buy

in East Sheen. Numerous problems can negatively affect a property. These include chimney defects. These will not be reported on by a solicitor.

Q.

We are buying on a newly development former industrial site. Could the soil be contaminated by industrial waste?

A.

Considerable measures are taken in the areas around East Sheen to identify and resolve soil contamination. The local authority for East Sheen will be able to provide more detail on cases of contamination.

Q.

Do we need a chancel search if I am intending to buy in the parish of New Brentford, near East Sheen?

A.

A lawyer could advise a chancel search, whichever parish in which the house being purchased is found. Through some parish councils have exercised their right to exact chancel repairs on owners of land subject to chancel liability, there is no guarantee that a parish where dues have not recently been paid will not continue to be so. Even if liability is unlikely, indemnity insurance is a sensible precaution.

Q.

What environmental concerns can affect land in East Sheen. Are these comprehensively investigated?

A.

Residential property in East Sheen can be contaminated by a range of natural causes and human activities. Contaminants including waste treatment sites in the area should be considered as part of the appropriate search.

Q.

For the purchase, my mortgage lender, we have chosen The Mortgage Business, what will we need to check?

A.

In some cases, lenders have opted to reduce the size of their 'solicitor panel'. This can mean higher conveyancing costs for buyers. We can act for all large mortgage lenders.

Q.

When is it wise to speak to a conveyancing solicitor to act for us?

A.

Whether you are buying or selling in East Sheen, the sooner you instruct a conveyancing solicitor, the better. The legal work can then commence immediately. Some authors advocate holding off instruction until an offer has been firmly agreed, but delays can risk the other side pulling out, particularly in uncertain market conditions.
