Q.

I need an affordable Holland Park conveyancing quote. Will we get a quote or and estimate?

A.

Numerous law firms promote 'the cheapest conveyancing quotes', but additional charges are often hiding in the terms of engagement. Additional fees which are listed in terms of engagement should be reasonable and only apply to matters if your lawyer is required to complete extra work , which could not be anticipated at the start of the process. The disbursements to be paid should be included on the conveyancing quote. Our quotes are not estimates, stating all the solicitors fees you will pay for a standard sale or purchase.

Q.

We are buying in Holland Park on a recently-developed ex-industrial site. Is the topsoil likely to remain contaminated by waste minerals like selenium (Se)?

A.

Even where some contamination has occurred in Holland Park, risk levels are usually low. Metal contamination of top-soil in Holland Park is more likely to occur near ex-industrial or waste handling sites. Data on other contaminants, like groundwater contamination, will also be included in an environmental search.

Q.

Do any conservation areas in Holland Park have the potential to impact the property we are buying?

A.

There are numerous areas of conservation near or within Holland Park. You may wish to contact the local authority for more detail, but your conveyancing lawyer will investigate the impact of conservation areas or other planning restrictions.

Q.

Does the HS2 route impact property in Gospel Oak?

A.

Yes, High Speed 2 will affect properties in Gospel Oak, and Gospel Oak owners living near the proposed line having to accept considerable disruption during HS2's construction.

Q.

In respect of the fact that 2012 was second wettest year since records began I am asking whether flood searches may not be exacting enough?

A.

A thorough lawyer in Holland Park should always get thorough flood searches if the enviro searches flag up a Holland Park area flood risk

For added assurance you can always contact a local resident.

Q.

Should we be aware of fixtures and fittings?

A.

Generally speaking, fixtures are 'fixed' to walls, floors or ceilings and cannot be easily removed, whereas fixtures are free-standing. Completion or agreement of a fixtures and fittings form is unfortunately often left to the last minute, when a dispute may jeopordise the transaction.

Q.

The estate agent we're using in Gospel Oak has named the conveyancing solicitor. Will it be easier to use this firm?

A.

If you choose a conveyancer referred through this route, you the agent can to reduce delays in the conveyancing process. If the agent is paid a referral fee, however, it may be the case that the agent recommends the solicitor willing to pay the highest referral fee, not the most suitable for you.

Q.

Does your company deal with auction conveyancing in Holland Park?

A.

Yes - We are accustomed to working with residential property auction procedures. Typically difficult to value homes like development propositions, are listed at property auctions which tend to necessitate more.

After the property auction your experienced conveyancing lawyer is wholly prepared for finishing the legal side of things in 28 days as usually required .
