Q.

What are the best rates for conveyancing for a £260,000 residence?

A.

Many firms claim to offer 'the cheapest conveyancing'. However extra costs are frequently hidden in small print that buyers often do not check. Extra costs which are listed in the terms ought to be reasonable. They only come into force where the solicitor must complete unanticipated additional work on your behalf, which could not be anticipated at the start of the process. Any disbursements to be paid should be included on the quote. Our quotes clearly state the solicitors' fees for a standard conveyancing transaction.

How is Newham contaminated land identified when purchasing a property?

A.

Property can be contaminated by a wide range of natural causes, and an environmental search will confirm if a house may be impacted by local contaminants such as local historic industrial processes or local waste transfer sites.

Q.

The owner has unfortunately fitted ill-suited PVC windows to the maisonette which I think might possibly exclude Caldon Canal Stoke conservation area criteria.

A.

The solicitor will make enquiries to determine if the property is within a designated conservation area, and if so whether any alterations have the appropriate consents from the Newham authority.

In the event that no appropriate permissions be provided, your solicitor will inform you of the options like obtaining an indemnity policy or seeking retrospective permission from Newham local authority.

Q.

Do you recommend that we get a chancel liability search? We are buying a Newham flat conversion next to a church constructed around the 1200s.
