Q.

Please confirm the cheapest fee for a £358,000 property? I am trying to find an affordable Old Ford conveyancing estimate.

This point catches out many buyers, and can leave them paying far more in conveyancing fees than they budgeted, and many property lawyers purport to offer so-called cheap conveyancing quotes, but extra charges may be added into small print that buyers often do not check.

Q.

Does homewardlegal.co.uk specialise the legal conveyancing of auction properties in Old Ford?

A.

Homeward Legal is accustomed to working with property auction conveyancing. Usually unusual lots e. g. building land, are sold at auction which need supplementary review by the lawyer. Solicitors therefore advocate buyers to appoint a suitable conveyancing company well before the date of the auction to allow time for a full investigation of the documents. Subsequently, following the property auction a prepared conveyancing solicitor must be geared up to get through the legal work inside 28 days after exchange as required by the auction conditions.

Q.

As a result of the fact that last year was second wettest year since on record I am thinking that flood risk searches may not be sufficient?

A.

A diligent solicitor in Old Ford will recommend that you also get in depth property conveyancing searches if the enviro search spots a significant risk local Old Ford flood risk.

For greater history you can speak to a neighbour or local resident.

Q.

If we plan to buy near Old Ford, in the parish of Islington [St Mary], do we need a chancel search?

A.

Whichever Old Ford parish you are purchasing in, a Old Ford conveyancing solicitor could recommend a chancel search. In Old Ford's much older areas, chancel repair has the potential to be imposed on the current owners of a house where church councils may have not done so in the past, so it can be difficult to use this as a guide.
