Q.

How do I find the cheapest conveyancing solicitors in Kensal Rise?

A.

Misleading conveyancing quotes catch out many buyers, leaving them to pay sometimes £100s more than planned, and many solicitors offer 'the cheapest conveyancing quotes', however additional costs may be added into the solicitor's terms of engagement that buyers often do not check. Additionals included in the small print needs to be fair and reasonable. They only apply in cases where your lawyer is required to complete unexpected extra work in your interest, which could not be anticipated at the start of the process.

Q.

How is Kensal Rise contaminated land identified when buying a property?

A.

A range of contaminants may impair Kensal Rise property, and an environmental search will confirm if a plot of land may be impacted by contaminants such as pollution incidents or existing and proposed overhead electricity cables.

Q.

Do I need to employ the conveyancing solicitor suggested by our estate agent?

A.

The agent will often refer a solicitors firm. However, if the agent is paid a fee by the solicitor, there is a risk that an agent may choose the conveyancer who pays out the highest referral fee, not the most appropriate choice.

Q.

Will the Kensal Rise conveyancer conduct any searches on the London Victorian terraced bungalow I am buying?

A.

When obtaining a mortgage the mortgage lender expects at least these searches - Local Authority, Drainage Search and Environment Search, and perhaps special local Kensal Rise searches e.g. a Official Search of whole with priority.

Q.

We have taken out a quote from you. Could there be any additional fees?

A.

We will not charge any hidden extra fees for conveyancing in Kensal Rise. Some firms only provide estimates disguised as quotes. The bill you receive on completion can be much greater.

Q.

When should you speak to a solicitor?

A.

In the majority of situations, the earlier, the better. Promptly instructing a conveyancing firm for your Kensal Rise transaction for a purchase allows you can shave days off the process by having the details of your instructed solicitor ready when you make an offer, or, if you are selling a property, relevant information can be sourced sooner (this is particularly true for leasehold properties).

Q.

What type of research concerning the risk of local flooding in Brent will the Kensal Rise conveyancing solicitor advise on?

A.

A critical part of the conveyancing procedure involved in buying a home involves a conveyancing lawyer conducting environmental searches that go into details on the subject of Kensal Rise flood risk area data.

Q.

How many lenders in Kensal Rise do you work with?

A.

We work with the bulk of lenders. A number of mortgage specialists operate in Kensal Rise, such as Maida Vale, 44 Formosa St, London, W9 2JP, and Mortgage Gateway, 84 Kensington High St, London, W8 4SG.
