How do I get the best conveyancing rates in Hammersmith for a £427,000 home?

Both high-street and online conveyancers advertise 'the cheapest conveyancing'. Often extra charges are often hiding in the terms and conditions. These terms are often ignored by excited buyers and sellers, eager to get underway. Additional costs found in the solicitor's terms should be reasonable and only come into force where the lawyer is required to complete extra work for you, which could not be anticipated at the start of the process. Third party costs, termed disbursements, to be paid ought to be defined on a conveyancing quote. Get a quote using the Homeward Legal quote calculator for the property you are buying.

What scrutiny regarding the risk of flooding in Hammersmith And Fulham will my Hammersmith conveyancing solicitor look over?

A.

An essential part of the legal process of purchasing a property involves the conveyancing lawyer making an application for environmental searches that provide information regarding Hammersmith historical flood risk. A recent check (05-Dec-08) there were no warnings around the Tidal Thames from Battersea Bridge to the Hogarth Lane Roundabout at the River Thames including areas in the boroughs of Kensington & Chelsea, Hammersmith & Fulham, Ealing and Hounslow

Q.

Are buyers often gazumped in Hammersmith?

A.

Gazumping describes circumstances where a property seller agrees to a buyer's offer and then dismisses it in favour of a greater offer. Because acceptance of an offer is not binding on the seller until exchange of contracts, there is a risk of being gazumped. Instructing a law firm early, and even before acceptance of an offer is a key first step to reducing this risk.
