Q.

How do we find a discount conveyancing quote in Poplar?

A.

Both high-street and online firms purport to offer cheap conveyancing quotes, but extra fees are frequently hidden in the small print. Busy, stressed property buyers and sellers ignore these terms at their peril. Our quotes clearly state the solicitors' fees for a standard conveyancing transaction.

Q.

What can we do if we buy a loft conversion within the boundary of a Tower Hamlets planning authority designated conservation area ?

A.

Part of conveyancing involves procurement of searches of Tower Hamlets council to identify conservation area status and the required permission for any modifications. Local Authority searches are charged at cost to the purchaser.

Q.

Is it recommended that I get searches for chancel liability? I am buying a flat conversion in Poplar.

Owners of property near to churches must subsidise repairs, where chancel repair liability exists. A chancel search is employed to check whether such a liability exists. Liability is more common in some parts of the country. A solicitor will be able to advise further. Poplar churches include All Saints.

Q.

When do you need to instruct a conveyancing solicitor in Poplar?

A.

The short answer is, earlier is preferable, as there are a number of tasks that can be performed straight away. Early instruction of a firm to act on your Poplar sale or purchase can reduce any chance of the sale or purchase falling though.

Q.

As a result of the extensive flooding in the UK in April 2012 we are apprehensive that flood risk searches may not be sufficient?

A.

An experienced Poplar conveyancer will advise you to also get specialist food risk searches if the standard searches determine a Poplar flood risk.

For added area background why not get in touch with a neighbour of the property.

Q.

Which Poplar mortgage lenders do you work with?

A.

Of lenders with offices near Poplar, we closely with many. Poplar lenders and mortgage specialists include Alpha Property Services (UK) Ltd, 307 East St, London, SE17 2SX, Mortgage Consultant & Brokers, 68 Tunnel Av, London, SE10 0SD, and Sammon Mortgage Management, Sutherland House/3 Lloyd's Av, London, EC3N 3DS.

Q.

Is a home buyers survey required when we are purchasing a house or flat, regardless of its age, in Poplar?

A.

Homeward Legal firmly recommend that all purchasers arrange a house survey. A range defects can affect a property. These can include chimney defects. Such issues will not be considered during the conveyancing work itself.

Q.

My mortgage lender is Swansea Building Society - what will we need to be aware of?

A.

Purchasers should consider that, over the last two years, some lenders are now reducing their 'solicitor panel', resulting in greater legal costs for buyers if a second preferred solicitor is required by their lender. Homeward Legal, however, can act on behalf of most mortgage lenders, keeping buyers' legal costs to a minimum.
