Q.

How do I find low cost conveyancing?

A.

Both high-street and online law firms promote 'the cheapest conveyancing quotes', however additional costs may pad the solicitor's invoice. Extra charges should be fair and reasonable. Third party costs, termed disbursements, to be paid ought to be defined on a quote. Our quotes are not estimates, stating all the solicitors fees you will pay for a standard sale or purchase.

Q.

Should we get a chancel search if I am intending to buy in the parish of Stepney, near Hampstead?

A.

Your solicitor may suggest a chancel search. Although some church councils have exercised their right to exact chancel repairs on the current owners of lay rectorships, there is no way to be certain that a parish which has not been subject to chancel liability in the past will not automatically be the case for future owners. In the event that chancel liability may apply, your solicitor might recommend insurance rather than pulling out of the purchase.

Q.

Is gazumping accepted in Hampstead?

A.

Gazumping occurs when a property seller accepts one buyer's offer and then rejects it, opting for a better offer. Gazumping may happen even months into a sale. Because acceptance of an offer is not binding on the seller

until exchange of contracts, there is a risk of being gazumped. Consider instructing your solicitor early, and even before acceptance of an offer to reduce the chance of your offer being gazumped.

Q.

Does Homeward Legal manage the conveyancing for auction properties in Hampstead?

A.

Our company is very capable working with buyers and sellers at auction. Our highly qualified conveyancers have worked for many buyers and sellers at regional auctions like Acuitus, Allsop (Commercial), Allsop (Residential), Auction House London, Award Property, Barnett Ross, Baxtons, Brendons Auctioneers, Countrywide Property Auctions and Drivers Norris.

Experienced purchasers will formally instruct a fast conveyancing firm as ahead of time as possible to allow for a thorough investigation of the legal documents before the property auction date.

Thereafter, following the property auction your dedicated lawyer will be prepared for finishing the legal side of things inside the limited time frame as required .

Q.

The Hampstead home being bought is on a brownfield land. Can the topsoil still be contaminated?

A.

Given the region's industrial and agricultural history in parts of Hampstead, soil contamination is difficult to avoid. Land may also be contaminated by other sources, including groundwater contaminants like industrial chemicals.

Q.

Will the property legal fees cover any additional costs?

A.

No. We do not hide any additional fees. Some websites offer unrealistically low 'quotes' which are in fact estimates, meaning that you could pay much more when you complete.

Q.

What kind of fact finding regarding the risk of possible flooding around Camden will a conveyancing solicitor in Hampstead scrutinise?

A.

A residential property conveyancer conducts standard formal environmental searches that should include Hampstead flood risk area data. On (13-Jun-12) there were no warnings around the River Lee at Harpenden at the The River Lee at Luton, Harpenden including Wheathampstead and East Hyde

Q.

What causes conveyancing for a purchase to seem to be so slow?

A.

The legal work required to buy or sell property could take more time. We work hard to diminish their effect by chasing for prompt responses.
