Q.

I need to find a fixed rate conveyancing quote, we are on a tight budget.

A.

Both high-street and online firms claim to offer cheap conveyancing, but additional costs are frequently hidden in the terms. Busy, stressed buyers ignore these terms at their peril. Fees should be reasonable and clear. The disbursements to be paid must also be stated on your quote. Our quotes clearly state all legal fees for a standard conveyancing transaction.

Q.

Should we get a chancel search if I plan to buy in the parish of Upper Holloway St John?

A.

Your property lawyer might recommend that a chancel search be taken out. Although some church councils have exercised their right to impose chancel repairs on the current owners of lay rectorships, it is not possible to be certain that a parish where chancel repair fees have not been paid previously will not be so in future.

Q.

Conveyancers in Maida Vale carry out varied searches when they are instructed by a home buyer,, but which particular ones?

A.

When getting a mortgage lender insist that at least specific searches, including the following Local Authority Search, Drainage Search (Con29DW) and Environmental,, and possibly specific searches for instance Index Map Search.

Q.

What is gazumping?

A.

Gazumping takes place when an offer is rejected, following initial acceptance, by the property seller, selecting instead a better offer. Because acceptance of an offer is not binding on the seller until exchange of contracts, there is a risk of being gazumped. To reduce the likelihood of being gazumped, consider instructing a property solicitor early.

Q.

What type of investigation into the risk of local flooding at Westminster will my solicitor in Maida Vale examine for a seventies home we are intending to buy?

A.

A solicitor makes an application for standard environmental searches, which include Maida Vale flood risk information. Furthermore the conveyancing solicitor in Maida Vale may recommend a more involved (e.g. Landmark) involved flood risk search.

Q.

We are buying on a Maida Vale ex-industrial use land. Could the topsoil be contaminated by industrial waste?

A.

Most soils in Maida Vale have some degree of contamination, from industrial or agricultural. The local authority for Maida Vale will be able to provide more detail on cases of contamination.

Q.

How could conveyancing legal work require weeks?

A.

Conveyancing will sometimes be delayed even in ideal circumstances. Sometimes, these reasons are regrettably beyond a solicitor's influence. Homeward Legal endeavour to lessen their impact by using fast search providers.
