Q.

I need to find fixed rate conveyancing. What do we need to consider?

A.

This issue catches out many home owners, and can leave them paying far more in fees than they budgeted, and many solicitors claim to offer theoretically cheap conveyancing, but additional costs are often hiding in the terms and conditions that unknowing home owners have not reviewed Our quotes offer a clear statement of your solicitors fees for a standard purchase or sale.

Q.

Which local authority is responsible for Eastcote?

A.

Eastcote is located in London Borough of Harrow Council, Harrow Civic Centre, Station Road, Harrow, Middlesex, HA1 2XF, phone: 020 8863 5611

Q.

The lender will be Intelligent Finance, what do we need to consider?

A.

Buyers should consider that, over the last two years, some lenders have reduced the number of firms on their approved panel, potentially creating higher conveyancing costs for purchasers. We can act for the vast majority of lenders so that the buyer will not have to pay legal costs to your lender's solicitor.

Q.

Is it recommended that I get a chancel search? I am buying a Eastcote property near a 13th Century vicarage.

A.

Potentially amounting to over £100,000 in repair cost obligations, chancel liability should be considered by buyers of Eastcote property likely to be affected. Insurance may be available to protect a buyer should a Eastcote Parochial Church Council enforce liability. Eastcote ecclesiastical properties which may give rise to chancel liability include St Lawrence.

Q.

For a fast conveyancing process to buy a £477,000 property, how can we speed things up?

A.

Crucial to a fast completion is to use a experienced solicitor. There are several things you as the purchaser can do to speed up your conveyancing, such as, requesting regular updates from your solicitor and keep the pressure on, promptly answering your solicitor's questions and organising your finances.

Q.

What kind of exploration regarding the risk and history of local flooding in the Hillingdon area will the Eastcote lawyer report on?

A.

An experienced solicitor makes an application for formal conveyancing and environmental searches, which include Eastcote historical flood risk data. On (25-Dec-12) there were no warnings around the River Pinn at Eastcote Village at the The River Pinn and Woodridings Stream at Pinner, Eastcote, Ruislip, Ickenham, Uxbridge and Yiewsley

Q.

Do we need to get a property surveyor to look into this property purchase?

A.

Homeward Legal strongly advise that Eastcote buyers arrange a property surveyor. It is a fact that there are a wide range of defects which have a negative impact on a property. These include corrosion of pipework and blocked drains. These will not be reported on by a solicitor.

Q.

What would searches cost?

A.

Searches range in cost, subject to the searches your lender requires. The most generally useful searches include an environmental search.
