Q.

How do we get low cost conveyancing in Petersham?

A.

Many firms claim to offer theoretically 'the cheapest conveyancing quotes', however additional charges are frequently hidden in the small print. This small print is often not read by homeowners in a hurry. Any additional fees found in the terms should be fair and clearly defined. The online quote calculator can generate an accurate statement of the legal fees for the property you plan to buy.

Q.

Will the property report compiled by the Petersham conveyancer give details on cost of council tax for a Band E property before completion?

Your solicitor will speak to the local council to ask about the correct council tax charges which will then be included in the title report. The latest tax charges for Petersham are detailed on the council website.

Q.

How much can searches be?

A.

With a Homeward Legal conveyancing solicitor, a purchase conveyancing client expected to pay at a maximum £249 for the standard search bundle. Searches are paid out to a 3rd party, and are not included in a quote for solicitor's fees.

Q.

What do conveyancing searches mean?

A.

Searches are common set of queries performed on behalf of the party intending to buy the property, such as a drainage search. They do not relate to defects such as settlement.

Q.

We are buying a property in the parish of Pimlico St Peter. Will a chancel search be required?

A.

A conveyancer could recommend a chancel search, irrespective of the parish in which the home being purchased is located. In Petersham's much older areas, chancel repair may be apportioned on current owners of a home where church councils have not imposed the same liability on the last owners. In the event that chancel liability may apply, your solicitor might recommend insurance rather than pulling out of the purchase.

Q.

Is a drainage search a fee or disbursement?

A.

Comparing quotes is not always straightforward, given the different terminology. This charge is a disbursement not a fee, and is passed on to the buyer at cost.

Q.

How common is gazumping?

A.

This occurs when a seller agrees to an offer, only to later dismiss it in favour of another buyer's offer. Although gazumping is less common in a declining market, there will always be a danger. You should instruct a fast, efficient solicitor as early as possible to reduce the chance of gazumping.

Q.

Is contaminated land in Petersham a problem?

A.

Petersham property is contaminated by many human activities. Issues such as waste treatment sites in the area or military land will be investigated during the conveyancing process.
