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.

Please tell us why sale conveyancing legal work takes so long?

A.

Conveyancing may be exposed to significant delays even in the best of circumstances. The delays are beyond a solicitor's power. We know how much extra stress these can cause and do our best to minimise their burden wherever reasonable by, for example, ordering searches as early as possible.

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.

I am anxious about the council tax rates on a Sixties mid-terrace property in Poplar, how much are they?

A.

Customarily the conveyancing report on title will provide the appropriate Tower Hamlets council tax band. Up-to-date charges for properties in Poplar are tabled at the Tower Hamlets local authority site. At the time of writing on 02/12/2012 the different rates are:

  • Band A - £795.00
  • Band B - £927.00
  • Band C - £1,060.00
  • Band D - £1,192.00
  • Band E - £1,457.00
  • Band F - £1,722.00
  • Band G - £1,987.00
  • Band H - £2,384.00

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.

I am expecting to be finally moving from our semi detached building on the outskirts of Poplar into our next home in Bow , what is the right point to book a home removal firm?

A.

The ideal point is for buyers to hold off making arrangements with a removal van until such time as you and the other side has firmed up an absolute date that happens once exchange of contracts. Try Man & Van Poplar, 115 Poplar High St, London, E14 0AE Telephone: 020 3616 0287 or House Removals, East India Dock Rd, London, E14 0BP on 020 3397 2786.

Q.

How is Poplar contaminated land investigated?

A.

Property may have been contaminated by a broad range of natural causes and human activities. Issues such as shallow mining should be considered as part of the appropriate search.

Q.

Which local authority looks after Poplar?

A.

Poplar is located in Tower Hamlets Council, Town Hall, Mulberry Place, 5 Clove Crescent, E14 2B phone: 020 7364 5009
