Q.

We are looking for a solicitor that offers cheap conveyancing in North Kensington. What should I check?

A.

Various conveyancers offer so-called cheap conveyancing quotes, however extra costs are often hiding in the terms and conditions. Fees listed in terms and conditions should be fair and clearly defined. They only apply in cases where your lawyer is required to complete extra work for you, which could not be anticipated at the start of the process. We provide quotes, not estimates, and clearly state the fees for a standard conveyancing.

Q.

I f I read up on handling the legal work when buying a home - Might it be a good economy to do the legal conveyancing process without help.?

A.

In theory, there is no reason at all why a home buyer should not carry out the conveyancing unaided. In reality however, a property lawyer is in charge of a huge number of roles from e.g. checking contracts and collating and preparing contract and package which need a skilled professional. Additionally solicitors practices are required by their regulator to take out applicable indemnity insurance to safeguard you in the event of any errors.

Q.

Is an administration fee a disbursement or fee?

A.

Comparing conveyancing quotes is often challenging, given the different terminology. This cost is a fee not a disbursement, and should be included in the quote for your conveyancing.

Q.

Is it recommended to get a chancel search if you are buying a North Kensington flat conversion on the same street as an ecclesiastical parish?

A.

Potentially amounting to over £100,000 in repair cost obligations, chancel liability should be considered by buyers of North Kensington property likely to be affected. Liability has the potential to impact the value of a North Kensington property, but an indemnity policy may be available to protect the new owners. Your conveyancing lawyer will suggest an appropriate indemnity policy to address chancel liability. Ecclesiastical properties in this area include St Helen's.

Q.

What should we do regarding cadmium (Cd) soil contamination in North Kensington?

A.

Considerable measures are taken throughout the local area to identify and remediate soil contamination. Metal contamination of soil in North Kensington is more likely to occur near factories and other industrial sites. Data on other contaminants, like asbestos and water contaminants such as bleach, will also be included in an environmental search.

Q.

What sort of local environmental searches in relation to the risk and history of a flood around Hammersmith And Fulham will the conveyancing solicitor in North Kensington actually carry out?

A.

A vital step in the legal process of buying a property involves your conveyancer carrying out environmental searches that set out some details regarding North Kensington flood risk. Additionally the conveyancing solicitor in North Kensington will typically advise an inexpensive additional involved search.

Q.

Does your firm advise on the legal conveyancing of auction properties in North Kensington?

A.

Our company is very knowledgeable with property auction procedures. Conventionally more complicated to convey houses such as structurally defective property, are listed at property auctions and these demand deeper exploration prior to exchange. Solicitors therefore recommend that buyers instruct a CQS property conveyancing lawyer well in advance of the day of the auction to allow for a full review of the sellers documents. Subsequently, immediately after the day of the auction, a lawyer will need to be able to concentrate on quickly complete the legal work in the 4 week time frame as required by the terms of sale.

Q.

For a property valued at £627000, how is SDLT calculated?

A.

Stamp Duty depends on several factors, including the purchase price. Stamp duty will be £25080 on a £627000 property.
