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

Q.

Do many designated conservation areas in Pimlico have the potential to affect us?

A.

With over 8,000 protected areas throughout England, the areas in or near Pimlico will include a number of conservation areas. A property solicitor will discuss the relevant responsibilities.

Q.

What are Pimlico's searches?

A.

These searches are a set of enquiries raised by the buyer's conveyancer, and cover solely facets affecting the legal title.

Q.

Should you get a chancel search? We are buying in Pimlico.

A.

Owners of property proximate to older church buildings must pay for repairs, where chancel repair liability exists. Indemnity policies can be arranged if chancel liability is likely to be enforced. A solicitor will be able to advise as to whether a chancel search is necessary, and recommend suitable insurance. Pimlico church lands include St Barnabas, St Gabriel's, St James the Less Westminster and St Mary's, Bourne Street.

Q.

What factors can contaminate land in Pimlico. Are they a concern?

A.

A broad range of contaminants may damage property, such as civil aviation activity in the area or sand or clay quarries. An environmental search can give more clarity.

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.

How early is it appropriate to arrange a conveyancer in Pimlico?

A.

With a 'no move, no fee' guarantee, as soon as possible. Instructing a firm early can limit the risk of the transaction aborting.
