Q.

We are looking for a solicitors firm that offers cheap conveyancing in Hornchurch. How do we get a quote?

A.

Many online and high street firms purport to offer theoretically cheap conveyancing. However additional fees can pad your solicitor's invoice. Any costs needs to be fair and clearly defined and only apply in cases where the lawyer is required to complete extra work , which could not be anticipated at the start of the process. Our quotes clearly state the solicitors' fees for a standard conveyancing transaction.

Q.

Should I instruct the lawyer suggested by our estate agent in Water Orton?

A.

Agent referrals are a not uncommon route to find a solicitor. However, if they are paid a referral fee, an agent may choose the solicitor willing to pay the highest referral fee, not the most appropriate choice.

Q.

For a fast conveyancing transaction on the purchase of a £636,000 property, what do we need to do?

A.

Contacting a proactive, diligent property lawyer is the key to fast conveyancing. Consider the following:

  • Was there a delay delivering a quote?
  • Which communication methods do they use? Days can be wasted waiting for letters in the post which could be emailed or faxed.
  • Do they work on a 'no sale, no fee' basis?

Q.

Where can we learn more information the status of Hornchurch and Hornchurch conservation areas?

Q.

Will your Hornchurch solicitor apply for any searches on the London Edwardian mid terrace house we are buying?

If purchasing and getting a mortgage a mortgage lender expects particular searches, including these searches - Local Authority, Drainage Search (Con29DW) and Environment Search and perhaps specific searches for example British Waterways Search.

Q.

Will you need to get a chancel search if we are buying in Hornchurch?

A.

Ecclesiastical properties in this area where chancel liability may apply include Elm Park St Nicholas, Holy Cross, Squirrel's Heath All Saints and St Andrew.
