Q.

There are lots of 'cheap' offers, but how do we find a good one? We are trying to find fixed rate conveyancing.

A.

Both high-street and online firms promote so-called cheap conveyancing. Often additional fees will be included in the terms of engagement. Any costs ought to be reasonable and be applicable if your solicitor is required to complete extra work on your behalf, which could not be anticipated at the start of the process. Our quotes are not estimates, stating all the solicitors fees you will pay for a standard sale or purchase.

Q.

We are concerned about the council tax amounts on a Fifties converted building in Ladbroke Grove, what are they?

A.

More often than not the conveyancer's title report should contain the appropriate Westminster council tax band.

Council tax rates for residents of Ladbroke Grove are detailed on the Westminster council site. At the time of writing, 27 October 2012, rates are:

  • Band A - £456.00

  • Band H - £1,369.00

Q.

Is it recommended that I get a chancel search when you are buying in Ladbroke Grove?

A.

Property owners near to a church in the area are expected to fund repairs, as a result of chancel repair liability. Indemnity policies can be arranged if chancel liability is likely to be enforced. The solicitor handling your conveyancing will be able to advise as to whether a chancel search is necessary. Church lands in Ladbroke Grove include St Michael.

Q.

At what point do we need to get a conveyancer?

A.

Generally, earlier is preferable, as there are several tasks which may be carried out very early in the process. Prompt instruction of a firm to act for you on your Ladbroke Grove transaction can reduce the likelihood of the sale or purchase falling though.

Q.

Should I read about doing ones own conveyancing when buying a house , Would it be prudent to enact the all of the legal work without any help?

A.

Hypothetically speaking there is no argument why you cant go down that route and embark on the bulk of the legal process on your own. However, a lawyer in Ladbroke Grove carries out a long list of skilled tasks e.g. chasing deeds and interpreting management accounts which are more safely handled with appropriate experience. Moreover lawyers are obligated to take out the appropriate indemnity cover that protects you in the event of failures.

Q.

Is gazumping prevalent in Ladbroke Grove?

A.

Gazumping happens when a property seller agrees to an offer and then rejects it, opting for another buyer's higher offer. There is almost always a risk of being gazumped. The first step in reducing the chance that gazumping will effect you is to instruct your solicitor as early as possible.

Q.

Should we get a Homebuyer Report for our Ladbroke Grove home purchase?

A.

It is strongly suggested that you instruct a house surveyor to undertake a survey if you are planning to buy in Ladbroke Grove. Many problems affect a property, which include poor drainage.

Q.

My agent has offered a property solicitor whom they usually use. Is it risky to use this firm?

A.

Both agents and mortgage brokers will often refer a solicitors firm, however, these referrals must be carefully considered, as there is a risk that an agent may choose the firm which pays to the largest referral fee, not the most appropriate choice.
