Q.

What are the best conveyancing rates for a £727k house?

A.

The lack of clarity surrounding this matter affects many property buyers and sellers who opted for a very cheap quote, only to be stung later in the conveyancing process. Many conveyancers purport to offer so-called 'the cheapest conveyancing quotes'. Often additional costs are often hiding in the small print which unwary property buyers and sellers fail to check. The Homeward Legal quote calculator will confirm the solicitors' fees, based on the property you are buying.

Q.

What factors will contaminate land in Mayfair. Are they a concern?

A.

Property in Mayfair would be contaminated by a wide range of naturally-occurring factors, and an environmental search should reveal if a particular property could be affected by local contaminants such as sand or clay quarries and radioactive substances in the region.

Q.

Sensible purchasers know to formally appoint a conveyancing firm as early as possible to allow sufficient time for a review of the auction legal pack well before the day of the auction.

Following the day of bidding a property conveyancing lawyer must be prepared for carry out the legal work within the usual 28 days, a normal requirement of auction conditions.

Q.

Solicitors in Mayfair order a variety of property conveyancing searches when they are acting for a home purchase client - which actual searches?

A.

When you are applying for a mortgage a mortgage lender mandates particular searches, including - Local Authority Search, Drainage and Water Search (CON29DW or personal) and Environmental, as well as any special local Mayfair searches for example HS45.

Q.

Do we need to instruct the firm of solicitors who usually works with by our estate agent?

A.

Both agents and mortgage brokers may endorse a law firm to handle your conveyancing. However, if they are paid a referral fee, the agent may recommend the conveyancer who pays out the highest referral fee, not the best solicitor for your needs.
