Living in the area? ;

Motorists are well served with Hainault ideally situated with very good motorway access approximately 3 miles off the M11 Junction 5 Southbound.

Goodmayes train station is almost 3 miles from Hainault and London City Airport is 8 miles from Hainault. London Heliport Airport is 16 miles, Northolt Jet Centre Airport is 22 miles, Elstree Airport is 19 miles, London Biggin Hill Airport is 20 miles and Stansted Airport is 21 mile away.

King George Ilford is the neighbouring hospital for Hainault.

Q.

Although there are lots of £99 fixed quotes online, how do we find a reputable one? We are looking for discount conveyancing.

A.

Many online and high street solicitors promote cheap conveyancing. Often extra fees can increase the solicitor's invoice. Any costs included in your solicitor's terms needs to be reasonable. The Homeward Legal quote calculator will confirm the exact legal fees based on the property you are buying.

Q.

How is Hainault contaminated land investigated?

A.

Land will be contaminated by many natural causes. Contaminants including shallow mining and proximity to waste sites should be considered as part of the appropriate search.

Q.

When should you arrange a conveyancing solicitor?

A.

Whether buying or selling, the faster you instruct the better, as there are various tasks which may begin straight away. Prompt instruction of a solicitor to act for you on your Hainault transaction could mitigate the chance of the purchase or sale stalling.

Q.

Will your Hainault property solicitor get any searches on the Essex Sixties end-of-terrace home I am purchasing

A.

The conventional procedure will be to get Local Authority Search, Drainage Search (Con29DW) and Environment Search and perhaps specific searches, which may include a Anti Money Laundering Search.

Q.

Is a home buyers survey sensible when buying any property in Hainault?

A.

It is heavily suggested that Hainault buyers arrange a RICS surveyor to carry out a survey. Buyers should be aware that there are many issues that affect a property, such as roof spread and chimney defects. These will not be reported on by a solicitor.

Q.

I am intending to buy a home in Elmdon. Is a chancel search necessary?

A.

A conveyancing solicitor may suggest that a chancel search be ordered, irrespective of the parish where the residence being bought is found. In Hainault's much older areas, chancel repair dues can be collected on current owners of a residence where Parochial Church Councils may have spared previous owners or tenants. In the event that chancel liability may apply, your solicitor might recommend insurance rather than pulling out of the purchase.

Q.

Do we need to be concerned about gazumping?

A.

The custom of rejecting an offer which has been accepted once another buyer makes a bigger offer is referred to as gazumping. Because acceptance of an offer is not binding on the seller until exchange of contracts, there is a risk of gazumping. The first step in reducing the chance that gazumping will effect you is to instruct your conveyancing solicitor as soon as possible.

Q.

I need to find fast home moving solicitors in Hainault - is that you guys?

A.

Our conveyancers always adopt a highly speed focused approach when completing the conveyance to meet the clients needs. The utilisation of state of the art workflow systems . We always also give property sellers a regulated property lawyer trained to communicate with everyone in the buyer and seller chain e.g. councils , to fulfil a fast home move.
