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.

Does my Eastcote property lawyer carry out any property on the London Fifties mid terrace property I am buying?

A.

When obtaining a mortgage, your lender will expect particular searches, including these searches - Local Authority, Drainage and Water Search (CON29DW) and Environmental and perhaps unique particular for example Flood Risk search.

Q.

Of large Eastcote lenders, who is on your panel?

A.

Of lenders with offices proximate to Eastcote, we with the majority. Eastcote lenders and mortgage specialists include Mortgage And Financial

Advice Shop, 118-120 Kenton Rd, Harrow, HA3 8AL, Practical Mortgage Solutions, 350 Pinner Rd, Harrow, HA1 4LB, and T L A Finance Ltd, 35-37 Lowlands Rd, Harrow, HA1 3AW.

Q.

Which environmental factors will contaminate land in Eastcote, and should they be a problem?

A.

Land is contaminated by several environmental factors, and factors including masts or pylons will be considered as part of the environmental searches.

Q.

Is there anything we can do to avoid paying SDLT rates?

A.

We do not advise purchasers undertake any form of stamp duty scheme, as such schemes are highly expensive and can be very unlikely to succeed.

Q.

If I am purchasing near Eastcote, in the parish of Radnage, do we need a chancel search?

A.

The conveyancing lawyer may suggest that a chancel search is taken out. In Eastcote's much older areas, chancel repair dues can be collected on current owners of a residence where parish councils may have spared previous owners or tenants.

Q.

What do I need to be aware of if we acquire a home in a Harrow planning authority designated conservation area ?

A.

An integral part of the legal process involves carrying out searches of Harrow local authority to establish conservation area status and the existence of formal approval for developments. In the absence of any the necessary permissions the solicitor will give you professional advice on the options, which include obtaining retrospective permission from Harrow planning authority or indemnity insurance.

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.
