Q.

How do I find a cheap solicitor for buying a house?

A.

Many online and high street solicitors claim to offer supposedly cheap conveyancing quotes, however additional costs are often hiding in the terms. Extras which are listed in the terms should be clearly defined. A conveyancing quote should list any disbursements to be paid.Our online quote calculator will generate an accurate quote for your transaction.

Q.

Does Homeward Legal conduct the legal conveyancing of auction properties in Gunnersbury?

A.

Yes - Homeward Legal is very capable working with residential property auction procedures. It is not uncommon for specialist lots e. g. development propositions, are bought at auction which tend to necessitate extra examination. Homeward Legal therefore suggest that auction buyers appoint a SRA regulated lawyer well before the property auction to allow time for a full investigation of the documents. Subsequently, immediately after the auction day itself your Homeward Legal lawyer is fully able to concentrate on concluding the legal side of things inside 4 weeks as required .

Q.

Is a deed of postponement passed on at cost?

A.

A good quote should clearly state all disbursements and fees. This charge is a fee not a disbursement, and should be included in your quote.

Q.

What investigation regarding the potential risk of flooding in the Hounslow area will the conveyancer in Gunnersbury examine on a residential home we are purchasing?

A.

The conveyancer will apply for standard formal environmental searches that will include Gunnersbury flood risk area data.

Q.

If I am buying near Gunnersbury, in the parish of Chiswick, do we need a chancel search?

A.

The property solicitor could recommend a chancel search, irrespective of the parish where the property being bought is located. Although some Parochial Church Councils have taken the decision to impose chancel repairs on the current owners of lay rectorships, a solicitor cannot state with certainty that a parish which has not been subject to chancel liability in the past will not be so in future.

Q.

Will we need a chancel search when we are buying in Gunnersbury?

A.

Property owners proximate to a church in the area are expected to contribute towards the cost of repairs, as a result of chancel repair liability. A chancel search is employed to check whether such a liability exists. A conveyancing solicitor will be able to advise as to whether a chancel search is necessary, and recommend suitable insurance.

Q.

When is it appropriate to instruct a conveyancing solicitor in Gunnersbury?

A.

With a firm offering a 'no move, no fee' conveyancing quote, the earlier in the process you can instruct a conveyancing firm, the better. The legal work can then commence very early in the process. Prompt instruction of a conveyancing firm could mitigate the chance of the sale or purchase falling though.

Q.

Do you state taking action to bypass paying for stamp duty to HM Revenue?

A.

We strongly advise against any stamp duty reduction, as such schemes are costly and often likely to fail.
