Q.

We need to find low cost conveyancing in Notting Hill , we are on a tight budget.

A.

Many solicitors claim to offer cheap conveyancing quotes. Unfortunately additional fees may pad your final invoice. Any additional fees listed in the solicitor's terms needs to be fair and clearly defined. Applicable disbursements ought to be listed on your quote. Homeward Legal quotes offer a clear statement of your legal fees for a standard conveyancing transaction.

Q.

When I am purchasing a apartment on the same street as parsonage land in Notting Hill, do you need a search for chancel liability?

A.

In Notting Hill, where land was once owned by a lay rectors, new owners of that property may be obliged to pay for maintenance of churches. Liability has the potential to impact the value of a property, but insurance is available should an obligation to fund repairs be enforced. Ecclesiastical properties in the local area include All Saints, St Clement, St John and St Peter.

Q.

When should I arrange a conveyancing solicitor in Notting Hill?

A.

In simple terms, instructing as soon as possible is wise. Some advocate holding off instruction until an offer is accepted, but opting to delay can jeopardise your sale or purchase.

Q.

Would getting a property survey be a good idea when purchasing a property, irrespective of its condition, in Notting Hill?

A.

It is recommended that home buyers order a RICS survey. A range defects affect a property. These include cracked roof tiles or flat roof leaks.

Q.

Would it be foolish to enact the conveyancing on a DIY basis myself.

A.

There are no reasons why a home buyer cannot decide to conceivably carry out the bulk of the conveyancing without a skilled conveyancing solicitor in Notting Hill. That said, a solicitor is in charge of a huge array of tasks including chasing completion statements and ensuring listed building alterations are compliant most of which really need the relevant training.

Fundamentally amateur lawyers do not have the correct insurance cover which qualified lawyers always get.

Q.

We are going to buy with The Tipton and Coseley Building Society - what do I need to be aware of?

A.

A small number of lenders have reduced the number of firms on their approved panel, potentially creating increased conveyancing costs for buyers. Homeward Legal are able to act on behalf of most lenders so that you will not be required to pay the lender's legal fees.

Q.

Is the High Speed 2 line going to impact Islington homes?

A.

Yes, HS2 will likely affect houses in St Pancras. Phase 1 of HS2 will affect 23 local councils running through St Pancras, from London to Birmingham.

Q.

Will a Notting Hill conveyancing solicitor apply for any property on the London Sixties terraced property I am intending to buy?
