Q.

How do we find a cheap solicitor quote for buying a property?

A.

The confusion over this issue catches out many homeowners, and can leave them paying far more in conveyancing fees than they budgeted. Many solicitors claim to offer so-called 'the cheapest conveyancing', but extra charges are frequently hidden in the solicitor's terms. Any additional costs included in the small print should be clearly defined. The Homeward Legal quote calculator will confirm the exact legal fees based on the property you are buying.

Q.

The home being bought is on a ex-industrial use land. Is the topsoil potentially contaminated by waste minerals like beryllium?

A.

Most top-soils in Falconwood have some degree of contamination, from agriculture or industry. Data on many contaminants, such as water contaminants such as petrol and fertilisers, will be included in an environmental search.

Q.

What causes Falconwood conveyancing to take months to complete? Isn't it a simple matter of filing paperwork?

A.

The legal work needed to sell or purchase a house or flat will occasionally be lengthy, we, however, aim to curtail the cost of these delays wherever feasible by proactively handling all enquiries.

Q.

In respect of the Met Office warning of more intense rainfall, I am apprehensive that conveyancing searches (environmental) may not be exacting enough?

A.

The property lawyer in Falconwood will suggest that you include property conveyancing searches if the standard searches flag up a risk of flooding in Falconwood

For greater assurance you may be able to get in touch with a close neighbour.

Q.

Is an online ID fee a fee or a disbursement?

A.

A quote will list all fees and disbursements. This cost is a fee not a disbursement. It should be included in your quote.

Q.

Does the High Speed 2 route impact Hanwell?

A.

Yes. High Speed 2 will likely be an issue in a number of properties in Hanwell. An HS2 search should clear up any anxiety for buyers which may be affected by the line.

Q.

Do we need to employ the property lawyer offered by the local agent?

A.

Agent recommendations are a commonplace route to find a solicitor. These referrals need to be weighed up against alternatives, including online or local firms, as the agent may recommend the firm which pays to the largest referral fee, not the most appropriate choice.

Q.

Is it necessary that we get a chancel search? I am buying a house near a parsonage in Falconwood.

A.

Owners of property neighbouring church property in the locality are expected to contribute towards repairs, as a result of chancel repair liability. A chancel search will confirm whether liability for Falconwood properties is likely to exist. The solicitor acting on your behalf will be able to advise as to whether a chancel search is necessary.
