Q.

I am looking for a cheap solicitor to purchase a house. and what is included?

A.

Confusion over this topic catches out many homeowners, and can leave them paying far more in fees than they budgeted, and many conveyancers purport to offer theoretically cheap conveyancing. Unfortunately additional costs may be added into the terms of engagement. Your quote should list any disbursements to be paid. Any additional charges included in the small print should be reasonable and clear. We offer quotes, not estimates, and clearly state all legal fees you pay for a standard conveyancing transaction.

Q.

Do you advise that we get a chancel search? We are purchasing a apartment on the same street as a rectory manor in Harmondsworth.

A.

Potentially amounting to over £100,000 in repair cost obligations, chancel liability should be considered by buyers of Harmondsworth property likely to be affected. Liability has the potential to impact the value of a property, but insurance is available should an obligation to fund repairs be enforced. Harmondsworth churches include St Mary.

Q.

We are trying to find fast property lawyers in Harmondsworth - is that Homeward Legals solicitors?

A.

Our chosen solicitors always adopt a highly speed focused style when completing the conveyance to meet the clients needs.

Homeward Legal always work with solicitors which will communicate through all parts of the property chain . Additionally Homeward Legals property lawyers are specifically chosen as they always use new HMRC and Land Registry integrated and information technology systems to complete on the property sale to your preferred move date.

Q.

If I plan to purchase near Harmondsworth, in the parish of Great Woolstone, do we need a chancel search?

A.

A conveyancing solicitor could advise that a chancel search be ordered, regardless of the parish in which the property being purchased is found. In Harmondsworth's much older areas, chancel repair may be imposed on owners of a property where Parochial Church Councils may have spared previous owners or tenants.

Q.

My estate agent has offered a property solicitor. Will it be more cost-effective to use this solicitor?

A.

Agent recommendations are a commonplace path for purchasers to get a solicitor. If the agent is paid a referral fee, however, some agents choose the firm which pays to the largest referral fee, not the most appropriate choice.

Q.

For what reason does conveyancing for a purchase be so drawn out?

A.

The conveyancing process can be lengthy even in ideal circumstances. In some cases, the delays are out of the conveyancing solicitor's control. Homeward Legal know how stressful these delays can be and endeavour to reduce their impact where feasible to do so. Reasons for delay may include issues elsewhere in a chain.

Q.

What is the council tax on a converted Band C building in Harmondsworth?

A.

You should be contain your property's council tax band in the report on title. The latest council tax charges for Harmondsworth are tabled online at the Hillingdon council website. At the time of authoring (23 January 2013) the rates are:

  • Band A - £946.00

Q.

We are buying in Harmondsworth on a recently-developed brownfield land. Can the soil still be contaminated?

A.

Harmondsworth's local area has a history of contamination from agriculture or industry, like much of the UK. Environment search results will factor contaminants, including metals and others such as water contaminants such as hydrocarbons.
