Q.

We are trying to find discount conveyancing in Paddington. What do we need to check for?

A.

Many buyers and sellers seeking discount conveyancing are caught out by the lure of very low conveyancing rates. Many conveyancers advertise 'the cheapest conveyancing'. However extra costs will be included in the terms, left unread by preoccupied buyers and sellers A conveyancing quote should also state applicable disbursements.Homeward Legal quotes are not estimates, and offer a clear statement of your legal fees for a standard conveyancing transaction.

Q.

What type of environmental searches about the uncertain risk of floods to properties in Westminster will the conveyancing solicitor in Paddington do on a Fifties property I am hoping to buy?

A.

A qualified solicitor makes an application for formal conveyancing searches that should include Paddington flood risk area data. A substantially more in-depth conveyancing search (most likely a Landmark Database search) might be proposed by a qualified Paddington property solicitor if the results of the initial searches

show that there is any risk of flooding. The most recent (01/03/13) publication on the Environment Agency don’t reveal any flood warnings in the Paddington area.

Q.

Our mortgage lender will be Barclays Bank, is there anything we need to check?

A.

Some lenders are now reducing their 'solicitor panel', resulting in greater conveyancing costs for purchasers if a second preferred solicitor is required by their lender. Homeward Legal, though, are able to act on behalf of many UK mortgage lenders.

Q.

I am buying at auction and would like arrange fast conveyancing, what can we do to speed up our move?

A.

Key to a fast completion is to employing a communicative solicitor. There are, in addition, a number of tasks you can also do to accelerate the legal work, including, if you intend to get a house survey, doing so as early as you can, completing all forms as soon as possible and pushing the solicitor to begin enquiries as soon as possible.

Q.

How do we guard against being gazumped?

A.

Gazumping takes place when an offer is accepted, and then rejected, by the owner, opting instead for a better offer. The chance of gazumping exists for almost any purchase. Instructing your solicitor early to handle your transaction should help to reduce the likelihood of gazumping.

Q.

My wife and I are buying in Paddington, and need to know if there are many areas of conservation.

A.

Buyers in Paddington should be aware of a number of local conservation areas. The local authority will offer more information about local conservation areas, and the lawyer handling your purchase should discuss what specific restrictions are in place.

Q.

What effect will High Speed 2 have on homes in Warwick District?

A.

HS2 will likely affect a number of property in Hatton. A thorough HS2 search should cover a Hatton house's distance from the line, along with details such as the speed of the train at the nearest point (affecting noise pollution).

Q.

We have requested a quote from you. Might there be any additional charges?

A.

No. Our solicitors do not charge any hidden extra fees regardless of circumstances. Your quote for conveyancing in Paddington is an accurate fee the legal expenses for your transaction.
