Q.

How do we get affordable conveyancing in Greenford?

A.

Several conveyancers offer supposedly cheap conveyancing. Often extra costs will be included in the solicitor's terms. Any charges needs to be fair. Our quotes clearly state the solicitors' fees for a standard conveyancing transaction.

Q.

Does your solicitors firm get involved in the conveyancing of auction properties in Greenford?

A.

Yes - Our company is very knowledgeable with bidders at auction. It is not uncommon for unusual properties such as in need of serious reconstruction are sold at property auctions which will want greater investigation prior to exchange. Conveyancers therefore suggest that auction buyers choose a lawyer before the date of the auction for a title report of the legal pack.

Thereafter, following the day of bidding your instructed lawyer is thoroughly prepared for rapidly completing all of the legal work within 4 weeks as typically required .

Q.

We have a found a leasehold property to buy. How do we arrange fast legal work?

A.

Key to a fast transaction is to use a proactive conveyancer. Additionally, there are a range of things you as the purchaser can also do to get moving sooner. These include:

  • quickly completing and return any forms
  • organising your finances
  • calling or emailing your conveyancer, and chase them if you suspect any delays

Q.

What sort of inquiry into the risk of local flooding around Ealing will the solicitor in Greenford advise us on?

A.

An important step in the conveyancing protocol involves the conveyancer carrying out environmental searches that go in some details regarding Greenford flood risk. On (10-Jul-12) there were no warnings around the River Brent in the London Boroughs of Ealing and Hounslow at the The River Brent from Hendon to Brentford including Brent Cross, Tokyngton, Alperton, Greenford and Hanwell

Q.

Is a drainage search a disbursement or fee?

A.

Unscrupulous firms frequently hide extra costs as necessary disbursements. It is not always clear if a cost is a fee or disbursement, and whether it should be included. This charge,e.g., is a disbursement not a fee, and is passed on at cost.

Q.

Are buyers frequently gazumped in Greenford?

A.

This is common both in Greenford, and across Ealing and describes when a house seller agrees to the 1st buyer's offer, only to later dismiss it in favour of another buyer's offer. Though gazumping is uncommon when property prices are falling, there is still a danger. To reduce the likelihood of being gazumped, consider instructing your solicitor as soon as possible.

Q.

Where do I determine more information about the conservation areas in Greenford?

A.

Local Greenford conservation area issues, for instance trees, the painting of houses or poorly maintained roads are administered by the local Brent planning authority. Following a campaign, English Heritage have conducted a survey and created a list on the condition (poor to good) of conservation areas along with the trend of the area.

Q.

Is vanadium (V) identified in Greenford topsoil?

A.

Soil contamination by industrial waste, including metals, will have occurred in parts of Greenford. Land may also be contaminated by other sources, including perchlorate and water contaminants such as bleach.
