Your solicitor would will advise that home buyers and sellers wait arranging removals until such time as the contracts have exchanged because a moving date wont have been settled.

Q.

Which environmental factors can contaminate land in Leytonstone?

A.

Many of contaminants caused by environmental concerns may significantly reduce the value of residential property in Leytonstone, and an environmental search will confirm if a plot of land can be impacted by local contaminants including coal mining.

Q.

As a result of the worrying amount of flooding in the UK in April 2012 I am wondering whether environmental searches may not be sufficient?

A.

A qualified conveyancing solicitor in Leytonstone should always get additional conveyancing searches (Landmark database search) if the environmental searches flag up any kind of risk of flooding in Leytonstone.

For added history you could always contact a neighbour of the property.

Q.

Leytonstone property solicitors do a number of conveyancing searches when instructed to act for a buyer, but which particular ones?

A.

If applying for a mortgage the building society of bank requires you to a solicitor to get at least these searches - Local Authority (personal or official), Drainage Search (Con29DW) and Environmental, and, depending on certain criteria, specific local Leytonstone searches, which may include a Chancel Search.

Q.

We plan to buy a residence in North End. Will we need a chancel search?

A.

The property lawyer could advise that a chancel search is ordered. In older areas of Leytonstone, chancel repair can be imposed on current owners of a property where Parochial Church Councils have not imposed the same liability on the last owners.

Q.

Do it yourself conveyancing without the help of a solicitor in Leytonstone is becoming possible when buying and selling a house. However, would it be a money saving idea ?

A.

Technically there are no arguments why you cannot take care of he legal process unaided. The truth is however that a property solicitor in Leytonstone takes care of a significant number of activities ranging from approving completion statements or checking replies to additional enquiries most of which require experience.

In any event however, legal practices are legally obligated to get the correct cover to protect you in the event of any losses you encounter.

Q.

Would arranging a survey be required when purchasing a property, irrespective of its condition, in Leytonstone?

A.

The Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors recommend that you arrange a building survey. A wide range of defects affect a property, which include wet rot or insect infestation. These will not be reported on by a solicitor.
