Q.

I am looking for affordable conveyancing in Hanwell. Will I get a quote or and estimate?

A.

This issue catches out many homeowners, and can leave them paying far more in conveyancing fees than they budgeted. Many firms purport to offer so-called 'the cheapest conveyancing quotes', but additional charges may be added into the terms of engagement. Excited homeowners, eager to get underway, often ignore this small print when they instruct. Any extra charges found in terms and conditions should be reasonable and come into force only if your lawyer must complete work beyond standard conveyancing , which could not be anticipated at the start of the process. A quote for conveyancing in Hanwell should also clearly state costs to be paid to third parties, including search providers, (disbursements).

Q.

I am purchasing a home in Paddington [St James]. Will a chancel search be specified?

A.

The solicitor could advise a chancel search. Although some Parochial Church Councils (PCCs) have determined to charge chancel repairs on the current owners, there is no guarantee that a parish in which lay rectors have not been expected to pay chancel repair dues recently will not automatically be the case for future owners, so indemnity insurance may be advisable even if liability is unlikely.

Q.

Is contaminated land in Hanwell a concern?

A.

Residential property will be contaminated by several factors caused by man and by nature. Contaminants such as civil aviation activity in the area and proximity to landfill sites will be detailed in an appropriate search.

Q.

Which local authority is responsible for Hanwell?

A.

Hanwell is located in London Borough of Ealing Council, Perceval House, 14- 16 Uxbridge Road, Ealing, London, W5 2HL, Tel: 020 8825 5000

Q.

Is it necessary that I get a chancel search? I am purchasing in Hanwell.

A.

Potentially amounting to over £100,000 in repair cost obligations, chancel liability should be considered by buyers of Hanwell property likely to be affected. Parochial Church Councils in Hanwell must register their interest over property by October 2013, simplifying the chancel search process. Church lands in this area where a chancel search may be necessary include St Christopher, St Mary, St Mellitus, and St Thomas.

Q.

Conveyancing searches (environmental) are compiled from past records and when you factor in recent climactic events for instance the fact that 4 of the top 5 wettest years recorded were in last 10-12 years are they sufficient to check sufficient information about the Hanwell flood risk area?

A.

A competent conveyancer in Hanwell should always apply for detailed property environmental searches if the environmental searches establishes a significant risk.
