Q.

I need a solicitor that offers cheap conveyancing. Will I get a quote or and estimate?

A.

Many law firms offer so-called cheap conveyancing. Often extra fees can increase your final invoice. Any extra fees which are listed in terms and conditions should be clearly defined and be applied only where the conveyancer must perform additional tasks for you, which could not be anticipated at the start of the process. Based on the property you intend to buy, our online quote calculator will generate an accurate statement of conveyancing fees.

Q.

In about 6 weeks we are shortly going to be moving from our semi detached property in Highams Park into a new house in Leytonstone . What is the optimum stage to book a home removal company?

A.

Most property lawyers will encourage buyers and sellers hold off until contracts have exchanged because it is likely that a final move date will not have firmed up. There are many local and national companies including Chingford Removals, New Rd, London, E4 9EX Call: 0845 660 0481 or Sheltransrem, 15 16 Hickman Av, London, E4 9JG Telephone: 020 8527 1633.

Q.

Conveyancing solicitors in Highams Park do some conveyancing searches if acting for a property purchaser, which actual ones?

A.

If applying for a mortgage a mortgage lender requires you to the following for properties in Highams Park: Local Authority, Drainage and Water Search (CON29DW) and Environment Search and, depending on certain criteria, area-specific searches such as Chancel Check.

Q.

I have a reasonable understanding of doing your own conveyancing when selling a maisonette , Is it a money saving idea to enact the all of the legal work without help.?

A.

In theory, there is no argument why you should not complete the legal process yourself.

That said, a property lawyer takes care of a large number of jobs ranging from chasing replies to requisitions or ongoing communication with the other sides solicitors which require experience. In addition solicitors practices are required to get the applicable cover to protect you in the event of any carelessness on the part of the solicitor.

Q.

Does your solicitors company carry out the conveyancing for auction properties in Highams Park?

A.

We are highly experienced with property auction conveyancing. Quite often hard to value lots such as residential investments are listed at auction which necessitate added investigation by the conveyancing lawyer. Lawyers therefore strongly encourage that bidders decide on a residential lawyer well before the property auction date to allow for a full investigation of the lot.

Subsequently, immediately after the property auction date the conveyancing solicitor will be geared up to finishing all of the legal work in as short a time frame as usually required .

Q.

Is a property survey a good idea when purchasing any property in Highams Park?

A.

The Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors firmly suggest that purchasers arrange a RICS surveyor if you are planning to buy in Highams Park. It is a fact that there are a range of defects that can affect a property. These include unsafe chimney circulation. Such issues will not be considered during the conveyancing work itself.

Q.

We need to know which Highams Park lenders your lawyers work with. Which panels are you a member of?

A.

Homeward Legal have worked with many lenders approved by the Council of Mortgage Lenders. A number of mortgage specialists operate in Highams Park, including Stonehouse Independent Mortgage Brokers, 17 Buxton Rd, London, E17 7EH, Click Mortgages, A/140 Oaklands Av, London, N9 7LJ, and Discount Mortgages Ltd, Hertford Rd, Enfield, EN3 5UA.

Q.

We plan to purchase a rectory in Haggerston St Mary. Should we order a chancel search?

A.

Your property lawyer may suggest that a chancel search be ordered, irrespective of the parish in which the house being purchased is found. Through some parish councils have taken the decision to impose chancel repairs on current owners, it is not possible to be certain that a parish where repair costs have not been paid before, that this will not automatically be the case for future owners. In the event that chancel liability may apply, your solicitor might recommend insurance rather than pulling out of the purchase.
