Q.

How do I get a cheap solicitor to purchase a share of freehold house?

Q.

May charges for the conveyancing take into account any supplementary hidden costs?

A.

Homeward Legal do not charge any hidden costs. Some firms only provide estimates disguised as quotes, meaning that your final bill could be much higher.

Q.

Having read about the catastrophic flooding in the UK in April 2012, I am questioning whether environmental searches might not be exacting enough?

An experienced Hale End solicitor will suggest that you get environmental searches if the environmental conveyancing searches identifies any kind of Hale End flood risk.

For extra assurance you can converse with a neighbour.

Q.

We are intending to buy a barn conversion in the parish of Edmonton. Is a chancel search required?

A.

Regardless of the Hale End parish in which you are purchasing, the property lawyer should confirm that a chancel search be ordered. In older areas of Hale End, chancel repair can be imposed on the current owners of a home where Parochial Church Councils may have spared previous owners or tenants. It is not safe to rely on the historical behaviour of the parish council alone as a guide.

What factors will contaminate land in Hale End, and will they be comprehensively investigated?

A.

Several contaminants can reduce the value of land in Hale End, such as proximity to landfill sites or military land. An environmental search can give more clarity.

Q.

Is there an authority that has any detailed data on the conservation areas in Hale End?

A.

English Heritage have produced records on the condition of conservation areas along with the vulnerability.

Conservation area matters for instance what can be demolished or traffic signs are presided over by the local authority (Waltham Forest).

Q.

Is a survey necessary if we are purchasing a home?

A.

Homeward Legal suggest that the majority of purchasers in Hale End instruct a surveyor. There are a range of defects that affect a property, which include roof damage. Such issues will not be considered during the conveyancing work itself.
