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.

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.

Q.

Is a stock transfer form fee passed on at cost?

A.

It is not always clear whether a quoted cost is a fee or a disbursement. This cost is a fee not a disbursement, and should be included in your quote.

Q.

What exploration as respects the risk of floods to properties in Hillingdon will the Harmondsworth solicitor scrutinise?

A.

A property conveyancing solicitor conducts standard environmental searches, which include Harmondsworth flood risk data. An inexpensive (around twenty pounds) and more specific flood risk search, such as the Landmark search, could possibly be recommended by a qualified Harmondsworth solicitor, if in the event that the environmental search reveal a flood risk.

Q.

In respect to the fact that 2012 was second wettest year since 1920 we are concerned that environmental searches may not be thorough enough?

A.

A competent conveyancing solicitor in Harmondsworth will suggest that you apply for conveyancing searches if the initial searches flag up a significant risk of flooding in Harmondsworth.

For added assurance perhaps you could get in touch with a local resident.

Q.

Which local authority is responsible for Harmondsworth?

A.

Harmondsworth is located in London Borough of Hillingdon Council, Civic Centre, High Street, Uxbridge, Middlesex, UB8 1UW, contact: 01895 250111

Q.

For fast conveyancing on the purchase of a £105,000 home, what can we do to speed up the conveyancing process?

A.

As is widely reported, a faster move is crucial to is to employing a proactive solicitor. There are, however, several tasks you, as the purchaser, could do. These include:

  • answering any queries raised by your solicitor as soon as possible
  • getting your mortgage offer in place
  • keeping in regular contact with the solicitor

Q.

Do I need to get a home buyers survey for this house purchase?

A.

It is strongly recommended that all buyers in Harmondsworth instruct a home surveyor to perform a survey. Buyers should be aware that there are many problems that can negatively affect a property, which will not be covered by the legal work, including roof damage.
