Q.

How do I find the best rates for conveyancing for a 385,000 house?

A.

Many property lawyers advertise 'the cheapest conveyancing quotes'. Often extra fees may be added into the terms and conditions which unwary property buyers and sellers fail to check. Any additional charges listed in the terms should be reasonable and be applicable solely where the lawyer must perform additional tasks on your behalf, 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.

We are intending to buy a church rectory in Lathbury. Will a chancel search be important?

A.

Your Ruislip Gardens conveyancing solicitor might recommend that a chancel search is taken out. Through some Parochial Church Councils have exercised their right to charge chancel repairs on the current owners of affected property, it is not possible to be certain that a parish in which lay rectors have not been expected to pay chancel repair dues recently will continue to be free from liability. Even if liability is unlikely, indemnity insurance is a sensible precaution.

Q.

Is there any detailed public published record on the conservation areas in Ruislip Gardens?

A.

Local Ruislip Gardens conservation areas, for instance building materials, rear extensions or advertising hoardings are overseen by the local Hillingdon planning authority. Following a campaign, English Heritage have put together details about the condition (poor to good) of conservation areas in Ruislip Gardens and across England in addition to the vulnerability to the area falling into disrepair.

Q.

We are buying in Ruislip Gardens on a newly development brownfield site. Is the soil potentially contaminated?

A.

Ruislip Gardens's local area has a history of contamination from agriculture or industry, like much of the UK. Data on many contaminants, such as groundwater contamination and trichloroethylene, will be included in an environmental search.

Q.

Which local authority looks after Ruislip Gardens?

A.

Ruislip Gardens is located in London Borough of Hillingdon Council, Civic Centre, High Street, Uxbridge, Middlesex, UB8 1UW, Call: 01895 250111

Q.

Would getting a survey be a good idea when buying a property?

A.

The Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors firmly suggest that all purchasers in Ruislip Gardens book a house survey if purchasing in Ruislip Gardens. Numerous defects affect a property, for example cracked roof tiles.

Q.

We are planning to buy in Ruislip Gardens. Is it recommended that 'conveyancing searches' are undertaken?

A.

These searches are standard queries requested by the purchaser's solicitor via specific agencies, for example a coal mining search. They will not be a substitute for a building survey.

Q.

What should I be aware of when buying a converted house in a Hillingdon local authority conservation area ?

A.

An integral part of conveyancing involves the making of enquiries of the local authority to determine conservation area status and the required consent for developments. .
