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.

When in the process is it appropriate to find a conveyancer to handle our transaction?

A.

Whether you are buying or selling in Knightsbridge, the sooner the better. Instructing your solicitor sooner could mitigate the chance of your transaction aborting.

Q.

We are hoping to move out of our semi detached house in Knightsbridge into our next property in Covent Garden what is the right point to appoint a home removal company?

It is prudent to is for home movers to wait before a removal van until after you and the other side has accepted by both parties the moving date that customarily occurs after signing of contracts. Local removals firms include Mr4Men Ltd, 50 Guinness Court/Cadogan St, London, SW3 2PQ Call: 020 3581 6575 or Removal Firm London, 2 Milner St, London, SW3 2PU Telephone: 020 3519 2319.

Q.

Conveyancers in Knightsbridge get varied property conveyancing searches when they are instructed to act for a buyer,, but which specific ones?

A.

If you are applying for a mortgage the mortgage lender expects the following Local Authority Search, Drainage Search and Environment Search, as well as any less common searches for example British Waterways Search.

Q.

Which local authority is responsible for Knightsbridge?

A.

Knightsbridge is located in Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea Council, The Town Hall, Hornton Street, London, W8 7NX, contact: 020 7361 3000

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?

A.

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.

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 am taking out a mortgage with the Royal Bank of Scotland, is there anything I need to check?

A.

In some cases, lenders are now reducing their 'solicitor panel'. This can mean increased legal costs for buyers. Homeward Legal, though, are able to act for many lenders.
