Q.

We are trying to find an affordable conveyancing estimate. What do I need to check for?

A.

Many conveyancers purport to offer so-called 'the cheapest conveyancing', but extra costs will be included in the solicitor's terms. This small print is often not read by sellers and buyers in a hurry. Our quotes clearly state the solicitors' fees for a standard conveyancing transaction.

Q.

Does a Greenwich property lawyer carry out any conveyancing searches on the London thirties mid terrace property we are buying?

A.

If you are applying for a mortgage a mortgage lender requires you to particular searches, including the following Local Authority, Drainage and Water Search (CON29DW) and Environment Search and perhaps unique particular for instance Contaminated land Search.

Which local factors can contaminate land in Greenwich. Are these thoroughly investigated?

Q.

If we plan to buy in the parish of Chelsea, do we need a chancel search?

A.

The conveyancing solicitor is likely to recommend a chancel search, irrespective of the parish in which the building being purchased is located. Although some Parochial Church Councils have determined to charge chancel repairs on the current owners of affected property, it cannot be guaranteed that a parish where chancel repair fees have not been paid previously will continue to be free from liability. For property in the parish of Chelsea, it is not safe to rely on the historical behaviour of the parish council alone as a guide.

Q.

Is homewardlegal.co.uk geared up for 28 day completions on auction conveyancing in Greenwich?

A.

The legal team put together legal documentation for vendors and commonly carry out work for auction buyers and sellers. We tend to inform buyers to appoint an experienced lawyer before the actual auction to allow sufficient time for a full investigation of the auction legal papers. Thereafter, following the property auction date your now prepared lawyer is completely able to concentrate on completing the legal side of things within the limited time frame as typically required .
