Q.

I need an affordable conveyancing estimate. as we are on a budget.

A.

Many buyers and sellers seeking discount conveyancing are caught out by the lure of very low conveyancing rates, and many law firms purport to offer 'the cheapest conveyancing'. However extra fees are frequently hidden in the small print. Extra costs included in the small print should be reasonable. Our quotes clearly state all legal fees for a standard conveyancing transaction.

Q.

We are buying in Harlesden, and have a quote from you. Are there any extra fees?

A.

Homeward Legal's solicitors never hide any hidden extra fees. Buyers and sellers should be aware that some solicitors' firms will give a low estimate, not an accurate quote, meaning that you could pay much more when you complete.

Q.

My lender is Barclays Bank, what do we need to be aware of?

A.

When organising a mortgage, a mortgage provider will need legal work to be undertaken in relation to the mortgage. Buyers should consider that some lenders have reduced the number of firms able to act for them. Homeward Legal, fortunately, are able to act for most mortgage lenders so that the buyer will not have to pay an additional fee for your lender's solicitor.

Q.

At what point do we need to find a conveyancer to handle our sale?

A.

In the majority of situations, the earlier in the process you can instruct a conveyancing firm, the better. Early instruction of a conveyancing solicitor to act on your Harlesden sale or purchase could mitigate the chance of your transaction falling through.

Q.

Could strontium (Sr) contaminate land in Harlesden?

A.

Soil contamination is closed monitored. Land may also be contaminated by other sources, including disinfection by-products.

Q.

My husband and I are intending to buy in Harlesden. Can we verify that the house is in a conservation area?

A.

These areas safeguard neighbourhoods of historical or architectural value. The benefits of such restrictions will include properties can be easier to sell, but they create additional maintenance and repair responsibilities.

Q.

What kind of enquiries in connection with the uncertain risk of flooding in the Brent region will my conveyancer in Harlesden report on for a Regency maisonette we are hoping to buy?

A.

A residential property conveyancing solicitor makes an application for property conveyancing searches, which include Harlesden historical flood risk data. A substantially more involved Brent database search, such as the Landmark search, will sometimes be advocated by your lawyer in Harlesden if the results of the environmental search suggest a potential flood risk to the Regency maisonette. The most recent (24/02/13) reports on the Environment Agency website do not list any flood warnings in the Harlesden area.

Q.

Will the conveyancing solicitor in Harlesden apply for any property conveyancing searches on the London Edwardian semi-detached home I am purchasing

A.

If buying and obtaining a mortgage lender insist that at least these searches - Local Authority (personal or official), Drainage and Water Search (CON29DW or personal) and Environmental as well as any special local Harlesden searches for example Contaminated Land.
