Q.

What do you charge for the legal fees on a £475,000 house? We need to find a low cost conveyancing quote in Knightsbridge.

A.

This point catches out many buyers, and can leave them paying far more in conveyancing fees than they budgeted, and many conveyancers claim to offer 'the cheapest conveyancing'. Often extra costs may pad your final bill. We offer quotes, not estimates, and clearly state all legal fees you pay for a standard conveyancing transaction.

Q.

Is contaminated land an issue for the majority of residential properties in Knightsbridge?

A.

A wide range of contaminants may impact property in Knightsbridge, like local historic industrial processes. An environmental search should offer more information.

Q.

Will a title report prepared by the conveyancing solicitor in Knightsbridge provide details about the relevant rates of the council tax on a Band F house before exchange?

The property solicitor will contact the council to enquire about the correct council tax charges which will be added to the conveyancer's title report. Correct rates for homes in Knightsbridge are detailed online at the local authority website.

Q.

How do I stop being gazumped?

A.

The practice of choosing to reject a previously accepted offer on a house after a second buyer has made a better offer is called gazumping. There is almost always a risk of being gazumped. Instructing a solicitor early, and even before acceptance of an offer should help to mitigate this risk.

Q.

Should the Knightsbridge property's fixtures and fittings list items such as kitchen units?

A.

Buyers are often frustrated by confusion over which fixtures and fittings should be included. Completion or agreement of a fixtures and fittings form is unfortunately often left to the last minute, when a dispute may jeopordise the transaction. This can make the clarification of any difference of opinion so important.

Q.

I want to find fast solicitors in Knightsbridge - is that you guys?

A.

We take an extremely proactive approach when concluding the conveyancing. By utilising state of the art software systems .

We always also provide you with clients a CQS conveyancer who will go the extra mile to communicate with the total property chain such as estate agents, for a quick exchange.

Q.

What do 'conveyancing searches' relate to?

A.

Conveyancing searches are a collection of questions carried out on behalf of the purchaser, which may include an environmental search, and consider the legal condition of the property's title.

Q.

What can we do if purchasing a maisonette in a Kensington and Chelsea local authority conservation area ?

A.

Part of the due diligence for buyers involves the application for searches of the local authority to determine conservation area status and the required consent for any alterations. Personal or official searches vary in cost but are charged at cost to the client. If no authority consents be supplied the solicitor will recommend all options like buying an indemnity insurance or obtaining retrospective approval from Kensington and Chelsea council.
