Q.

How do we find a cheap solicitor in Hanworth to sell a home?

This catches out many property buyers and sellers, and can leave them paying far more in conveyancing fees than they budgeted. Many firms promote cheap conveyancing quotes, but extra charges may inflate your solicitor's invoice.

Q.

What does 'gazumping' mean?

A.

Unfortunately, gazumping is widespread both in Hanworth, and across North London and happens when a home owner accepts an offer, only to reject it in favour of a higher offer.

Q.

The estate agent has offered a conveyancing. Will it be easier to instruct them?

A.

Both agents and mortgage brokers will refer a solicitor. If the agent is paid a referral fee, however, an agent may decide to recommend the firm which pays to the largest referral fee, not a firm with local expertise and a solid reputation.

Q.

I plan to purchase a residence in the parish of Perivale. Is a chancel search appropriate?

A.

A Hanworth conveyancing solicitor should confirm that a chancel search is ordered. In Hanworth's much older areas, chancel repair has the potential to be charged on new owners of a house where Parochial Church Councils may have not done so in the past. Even if liability is unlikely, indemnity insurance is a sensible precaution.

Q.

Is a survey required when purchasing residential property in Hanworth?

A.

It is advised that most Hanworth buyers order an inspection. Buyers should be aware that there are many concerns that have a negative impact on a property, that a lender's valuation survey, for example, will not cover. These include cracked roof tiles.
