I am planning to sell my house and have a quote from you. Might I be invoiced any supplementary hidden charges?
Homeward Legal do not charge any hidden costs for standard conveyancing work.
I am buying a home in the parish of St Marylebone Christ Church. Is a chancel search appropriate?
A conveyancing lawyer is likely to recommend a chancel search, regardless of the parish where the home being bought is located. Although some Parochial Church Councils (PCCs) have exercised their right to impose chancel repairs on owners, a conveyancing solicitor cannot verify that a parish where chancel repair fees have not been paid previously will not be so in future, so the solicitor will be unable to make any guarantees, and will recommend insurance.
Would ordering a building survey be sensible when purchasing a house?
Homeward Legal recommend that Islington property purchasers book a house surveyor to perform a survey. There can be a range of defects that can affect a property, which will not be addressed during a property valuation, which include cavity wall tie failure.
Would it be a silly move to carry out the DIY conveyancing ourselves.
There is no argument why a home buyer should not look after the legal work yourself. That said, a solicitor in Islington is in charge of a long list of actions ranging from chasing mortgage offer or notifying parties of completion most of which require a qualified solicitor. In any event however, solicitors firms are duty bound to get professional indemnity insurance to protect you from any errors made by the lawyer.
