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 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.

Q.

Does the property solicitor in Harmondsworth get any searches on the London period detached home I am intending to purchase?

If taking out a mortgage the mortgage lender mandates at least the following Local Authority, Drainage and Water Search and Environment Search,, and possibly specific searches, like a SIM Search.

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.

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.

What are our options if we acquire a Harmondsworth semi detached house in a Hillingdon local authority conservation area ?

A.

Part of the property legal includes ordering of LLC1 searches of Hillingdon local authority to determine conservation area status and the existence of permission for any developments. In the absence of any consents, your solicitor will recommend the best alternatives, which include requesting from the appropriate local authority or taking out indemnity insurance.

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.

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
