Q.

How do we find affordable conveyancing?

A.

Lack of clarity over this topic catches out many homeowners, and can leave them paying far more in fees than they budgeted. Many property lawyers advertise supposedly cheap conveyancing, but extra fees may increase your solicitor's invoice. Extrasfound in terms of engagement needs to be reasonable. They be applied only where your conveyancer is required to complete unexpected extra work , which could not be anticipated at the start of the process. Homeward Legal quotes offer a clear statement of your legal fees for a standard conveyancing transaction.

Q.

Are costs for obtaining copies of planning permission fees or disbursements?

A.

A good quote should clearly state all disbursements and fees. These costs are fees not disbursements. It should be included in your quote.

Q.

How can we protect against being gazumped?

A.

Gazumping takes place when a house seller accepts an offer and then rejects it, opting for a better offer. It could occur days before contracts are due to be exchanged. The chance of gazumping is present in any transaction. Consider instructing your solicitor as soon as possible to reduce the chance of your offer being gazumped.

Q.

What are our options if we invest in a semi detached house in a Westminster planning authority designated conservation area ?

A.

Part of the property legal includes the making of enquiries of the local authority to verify conservation area status and the appropriate consent for any development. LLC1 searches vary in price between authorities, but are charged at cost to the client.

Q.

Which local authority is responsible for Pimlico?

A.

Pimlico is located in Westminster City Council, PO Box 240, Westminster City Hall, 64 Victoria Street, London, SW1E 6QP, contact:

Q.

We are buying a rectory in the parish of Hammersmith. Will we need a chancel search?

A.

Whichever Pimlico parish you are buying in, a conveyancing lawyer may suggest a chancel search. Although some Parochial Church Councils have exercised their right to charge chancel repairs on owners of lay rectorships, it is not possible to be certain that a parish which has not been subject to chancel liability in the past will continue to be free from liability. Even if liability is unlikely, indemnity insurance is a sensible precaution.

Q.

What length of time does conveyancing to purchase a home generally need? The property is also local.

A.

Generally speaking, the number of weeks needed to buy or sell property can vary. This is influenced by a handful of concerns including if the property being bought or sold is leasehold. With Homeward Legal's Pimlico property experts, every purchase receives communicative and proactive service, resulting in the fastest possible outcome.

Q.

I am intending to move out of our semi detached house just outside Pimlico into our next dwelling in Mayfair . What is the best point to instruct a removals firm?

A.

We tend to advocate that you wait booking a removals company until the point where formal exchange of contracts because a final moving date will not have been confirmed.
