Q.

I need to find a cheap solicitor quote to sell a house. How do we get a quote?

A.

Various solicitors promote so-called cheap conveyancing quotes, but additional fees are often hiding in small print, left unread by preoccupied property buyers and sellers

Q.

ING Direct is our lender, what will I need to check?

A.

Buyers should know that, in some cases, lenders have opted to reduce the size of their 'solicitor panel'. For house purchasers, this can result in significantly increased legal costs. Homeward Legal are able to act on behalf of all major UK mortgage lenders.

Q.

I am intending to buy a church rectory in the parish of Stamford Hill St Thomas. Should we order a chancel search?

A.

A Seven Kings conveyancing solicitor may suggest a chancel search, irrespective of the parish where the property being bought is located. In older areas of Seven Kings, chancel repair has the potential to be imposed on owners of a property where Parochial Church Councils (PCCs) may have not done so in the past, so it can be difficult to use this as a guide.

Q.

Do it yourself conveyancing without instructing a property lawyer in Seven Kings appears to be becoming possible when buying a maisonette , but would it be really be viable ?

A.

There are no arguments why a buyer should not carry out the conveyancing without a trained conveyancer in Seven Kings. However, a property solicitor typically handles a long list of assignments ranging from drafting contracts or notifying parties of completion many of which are more safely handled with appropriate the relevant training.

Q.

How long may conveyancing to purchase an apartment require in Seven Kings?

A.

The time required to transact residential property varies, influenced by several legal considerations. These could include when 3rd parties fail to promptly answer queries. Nationwide, the average is around ten weeks, but we aim to complete the process within six weeks.

Q.

We are buying on a former industrial site. Is the topsoil likely to be contaminated?

A.

Some metal contamination may have occurred throughout Seven Kings, but where substances causing significant pollution of surface waters or groundwater are found the land will be defined as 'contaminated'. Land may also be contaminated by other sources, including disinfection by-products and groundwater contamination.

Q.

What are the alternatives if we acquire a flat in a Redbridge local authority designated conservation area ?

A.

An integral part of conveyancing for buyers includes procurement of searches of the local authority to establish conservation area status and the requisite permission for developments. .

If no authority consents be produced, your Seven Kings conveyancing solicitor will recommend all options for example buying an indemnity policy or seeking retrospective consent from the appropriate local authority.

Q.

Do I need to get a property survey for our property purchase?

A.

We recommend that the majority of buyers order a home buyer survey. Numerous defects have a negative impact on a property, such as ground movement. Such issues will not be considered during the conveyancing work itself.
