Q.

Isle Of Dogs area info

A.

The nearest hospital is Blackheath.

Q.

There are lots of 'cheap' offers, but how do we find a good one? We are looking for fixed rate conveyancing.

A.

Various solicitors promote theoretically 'the cheapest conveyancing quotes'. Often extra charges are frequently hidden in the small print, left unread by preoccupied property buyers and sellers Costs found in the small print should be fair and reasonable.

Q.

What fact finding in connection with the potential risk of floods in Tower Hamlets will my Isle Of Dogs property solicitor advise us on?

A.

A critical step in the conveyancing process involves a conveyancing solicitor conducting conveyancing and environmental searches that give you details on the subject of Isle Of Dogs flood risk. On (18-Dec-12) there were no warnings around the Tidal Thames from the River Lee to the Limehouse Basin at the River Thames riverside from the Thames Barrier to Putney Bridge

Q.

We are buying a modern property. Should we have 'conveyancing searches' ordered?

A.

These searches are standard queries ordered on behalf of the party intending to buy the property. Searches will not be a substitute for a building survey and will not identify structural issues.

Q.

What should we do regarding antimony (Sb) soil contamination in Isle Of Dogs?

A.

Given the history of industry and agriculture in parts of Isle Of Dogs, soil contamination is impossible to completely avoid. Environment search results will factor contaminants, including metals and others such as ammonia.

Q.

Is there any thorough data on the upkeep of Isle Of Dogs conservation areas?

A.

Conservation area matters such as public spaces, the painting of houses or back illuminated signs are presided over by the local Lewisham planning authority. English Heritage, a government body, maintain a list on the condition of conservation areas in England as well as the trend.

Q.

Do we need to get a property survey?

A.

We suggest that home buyers book a home buyer survey. It is a fact that there are a range of defects that will impact a property, including cracks around door frames and poor drainage, and these will not be addressed by your conveyancing solicitor.

Q.

May my conveyancing quote conceal any additional costs?

A.

Homeward Legal's solicitors will never charge any hidden fees for any reason. Your conveyancing quote is an accurate price the legal expenses for your sale or purchase.

Q.

Is it advisable that we get a chancel search? I am purchasing a Isle Of Dogs flat conversion near a church built in around the 1200s.

A.

The Law Lords decision in Aston Cantlow (PCC) v Wallbank confirmed that chancel repair liability could be enforced. Liability has the potential to impact the value of a property, but insurance is available should an obligation to fund repairs be enforced. Isle Of Dogs church properties which may give rise to chancel liability include Christ Church and St Luke.
