Q.

Local points of interest in Slough

A.

Wexham Bucks Windmill, Windsor Castle Castle and Black Park Country Park are easily accessible from Slough.

The most convenient hospital for Slough is Upton Slough.

Q.

How do I find the best conveyancing rates for a £161,000 house?

A.

Numerous law firms purport to offer supposedly 'the cheapest conveyancing quotes', however additional charges are often hiding in the terms and conditions. Additional fees should be reasonable.

Q.

What is the optimum stage to we book the home removal company?

A.

Homeward Legals advice is for home movers to delay instructing a removal firm until the point where both sides have scheduled an absolute move date which happens after exchange of contracts. For a local Berkshire company Vanman, 3a Church St, Slough, SL1 1PQ Call: 07748 141515 or Skylark Ltd, 15 Hillside, Slough, SL1 2RN Telephone: 07960 117600.

Q.

Will we need searches for chancel liability if I am purchasing in Slough near a church built in the 14th Century?

Where land in Slough was once owned by a lay-rector, new owners of that property may be obliged to contribute towards the cost of repairs to nearby church land. Some names or words such as 'glebe' give an indication of a property's history, and thus whether chancel liability may apply. Slough churches which may give rise to chancel liability include Chalvey St Peter, St Paul and St. Mary.

Q.

The owner looks to have added unbecoming cladding to the maisonette which I think might conflict with Alphin Brook conservation area rules.

A.

The solicitor is required to identify whether the property is affected by a conservation area and whether any modifications have appropriate permissions from the local planning authority. If no appropriate consents be in evidence, your conveyancing solicitor will advise you of the alternatives which may include getting an indemnity insurance policy or getting retrospective approval from the appropriate local authority.

Q.

What causes the purchase conveyancing process in Slough to require so much time and effort?

A.

The conveyancing process will sometimes potentially be delayed. Homeward Legal strive to curtail the cost of these delays whenever we can. There are numerous reasons for delay, such as waiting for a mortgage offer.

Q.

Halifax is going to be our lender, is there anything I need to know?

A.

Recently, a number of lenders have limited the number of solicitors who can act for them. Homeward Legal can act for many mortgage lenders.

Q.

Is there anything we are supposed to do to make our Slough conveyancing faster?

A.

As is widely reported, moving faster is the key to instruct a proactive property lawyer. When identifying an appropriate a property lawyer, you should ask the following: Do they offer 'instant' online quotes? Are phone, fax and email their preferred methods of contact Will they order searches immediately?

Q.

Do you recommend taking action to avoid paying SDLT?

A.

Stamp duty mitigation scheme should be treated with extreme caution in Slough. Such schemes are costly and unreliable.
