Q.

How do we get low cost conveyancing in Epping?

A.

The confusion over what is, and is not, included in a 'cheap' quote leaves many buyers paying out more than they anticipated in the end, and many law firms claim to offer supposedly 'the cheapest conveyancing quotes', but extra fees are often hiding in the small print. Excited buyers, eager to get underway, often ignore this small print when they instruct. The conveyancing quote should state any disbursements to be paid.

Q.

A.

The Homeward Legal partnership have worked with the majority of lenders serving Epping purchasers.

Q.

Is a survey sensible if we are purchasing any property?

A.

The Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors advise that all buyers arrange a surveyor to perform a survey. Numerous concerns can negatively affect a property. These include blocked drains. These will not be reported on by a solicitor.

Q.

How does my Epping conveyancing solicitor report on the potential risk of local flooding in the Epping region?

A.

A necessary component in the conveyancing process involved in buying a home involves the lawyer applying for property conveyancing searches that give some details about the potential Epping area flood risk.

Q.

The property in Epping being bought is on a former industrial site. We have learnt that cadmium soil contamination may be an issue.

A.

Epping's local area has a history of contamination from agriculture or industry, like much of the UK. Data on many contaminants, such as groundwater contamination, will be included in an environmental search.

Q.

When in the conveyancing process should I instruct a conveyancer to act on our sale?

A.

With a firm offering a 'no move, no fee' conveyancing quote, the sooner the better, as there are a number of tasks which may begin immediately. Early instruction of a conveyancing firm could mitigate the chance of your transaction stalling.

Q.

What will the council tax cost on a buy to let Band C apartment in Epping?

A.

Your pertinent band should typically be highlighted as part of the conveyancer's title report along with the local authority.

Q.

The current owner looks to have added unsuitable windows on the home in Epping which might violate conservation area criteria

A.

Your property solicitor will always check if the property is affected by a designated conservation area and whether any alterations have requisite consent from the local authority. In the event that no appropriate permissions be provided your conveyancing solicitor will advise you of all options, which include taking out an indemnity insurance or getting retrospective consent from Epping Forest local authority.
