Q.

Noted Kingston Vale interest

A.

Wimbledon London Windmill, Marble Hill House English Heritage and Chiswick House English Heritage are close at hand to Kingston Vale.

The most convenient hospital is New Victoria Kingston upon Thames.

Q.

We are trying to find low cost conveyancing. because we are on a limited budget.

A.

The lack of clarity surrounding this issue catches out many sellers and buyers, and can leave them paying far more in conveyancing fees than they budgeted, and many conveyancers advertise theoretically 'the cheapest conveyancing quotes', however extra costs will be included in small print. Any additional fees found in the terms needs to be fair. Our quotes clearly state the solicitors' fees for a standard conveyancing transaction.

Q.

Is the HS2 line going to affect Hillingdon homes?

A.

Yes, High Speed 2 will likely affect some properties in Cowley. Following the announcement of the proposed HS2 route, the mortgagability and value of some properties on the line has been affected.

Q.

Conveyancing and environmental searches may be all well and good but considering recent climactic events such as the fact that last year was second wettest year since records began are they actually good enough to check enough about the Kingston Vale flood risk area?

Your Kingston Vale lawyer will recommend that you apply for flood searches if the initial search spots a significant risk.

For added peace of mind why not contact a local resident.

Q.

What does the searches in Kingston Vale be?

A.

Searches range in cost, depending on the searches required.

Q.

We are buying a restored chapel in the parish of St Botolph without Bishopsgate. Will a chancel search be required?

A.

Whichever Kingston Vale parish you are purchasing in, a property lawyer might recommend a chancel search. In Kingston Vale's much older areas, chancel repair dues can be collected on the owners of a home where Parochial Church Councils may have not done so in the past. For property in the parish of St Botolph without Bishopsgate, it is not safe to rely on the historical behaviour of the parish council alone as a guide.

Q.

The estate agent we're using in Cowley has referred the law firm. Do I need to instruct this firm?

A.

It is commonplace for agents to refer one or more conveyancing firms, however, these referrals must be carefully considered, as an agent may decide to recommend the solicitor willing to pay the highest referral fee, not a firm with local expertise and a solid reputation.

Q.

What are our options if we buy a semi detached house in a Kingston upon Thames council conservation area ?

A.

An integral part of the legal process involves making enquiries of the local authority to see conservation area status and the required consent for any changes. These searches vary in cost but are charged at cost to the purchaser.

Q.

When do you need to find a conveyancing solicitor to act on our purchase?

A.

If you choose a conveyancing firm with 'no move, no fee' protection, the sooner the better. The legal work can then commence straight away. Instructing your solicitor earlier for a purchase means that your offer may be taken more seriously if you already have a solicitor instructed, or, if you are selling a property, relevant information can be sourced sooner (this is particularly true for leasehold properties).
