Q.

How do I find low cost conveyancing?

A.

Many online and high street property lawyers advertise 'the cheapest conveyancing quotes'. Often extra costs are often hiding in the terms of engagement. Excited homeowners, eager to get underway, often ignore this small print when they instruct. Your Plaistow conveyancing quote ought to define third party costs, termed disbursements, to be paid. Costs found in the terms should be reasonable and only apply in cases where the conveyancer is required to complete extra work , which could not be anticipated at the start of the process. Homeward Legal quotes are not estimates, and offer a clear statement of your legal fees for a standard conveyancing transaction.

Q.

How frequent is gazumping?

A.

This occurs when a property owner approves an offer, only to later reject it in favour of a better offer. Though gazumping is uncommon when property prices are falling, there is still a risk. Consider instructing your property solicitor early to reduce the chance of your offer being gazumped.

Q.

Which Plaistow mortgage lender panels are you a member of?

A.

Most lenders in Plaistow are on our solicitors' panels. Local mortgage lenders and brokers include Sagor Mortgage Services, 431 Green St, London, E13 9AU.

Q.

Do you suggest taking precautions to bypass paying out for stamp duty on the home?

A.

Stamp duty is generally due for residential property over £125,000. Homeward Legal firmly advise against any stamp duty reduction scheme. Such schemes are costly and , if the scheme fails, you may be charged a penalty of up to 100% of the stamp duty amount owed.

Q.

Is contaminated land in Plaistow a concern for most houses?

A.

Several contaminants may ruin land in Plaistow, like hazardous substances in the ground. An environmental search can provide much more clarity.

Q.

Is molybdenum (Mo) soil contamination likely in Plaistow?

A.

The risks posed by soil contamination to Plaistow inhabitants are usually low. Also considering issues such as groundwater contamination and polychlorinated biphenyl (PCBs), contaminants affecting Plaistow property will be factored into an environmental search.

Q.

Can I find out whether a property is in one of Plaistow's areas of conservation?

A.

Conservation areas protect streets and neighbourhoods of 'special architectural and historic interest'. The council will offer more information about local conservation areas, and the solicitor handling your purchase will discuss the relevant responsibilities.

Q.

I have taken out a conveyancing quote from you. Will we be expected to pay any additional fees?

A.

No. Homeward Legal's solicitors will never charge any hidden fees for Plaistow conveyancing. Some solicitors' firms will give a low estimate, not an accurate quote, meaning that your final bill could be much higher.
