Q.

Smithfield points of interest

A.

Brixton London Windmill, Holborn Lincolns Inn Great Hall Historic Building and Temple Middle Temple Hall Historic Building are in Smithfield.

The nearest hospital to Smithfield is St Bartholomews London.

Q.

I need to find fixed rate conveyancing. How do I get a quote?

A.

Various solicitors purport to offer 'the cheapest conveyancing quotes'. Often additional costs are frequently hidden in the terms of engagement. Busy, stressed buyers ignore these terms at their peril. A quote for conveyancing in Smithfield should list any disbursements.We offer quotes, not estimates, and clearly state all legal fees you pay for a standard conveyancing transaction.

Q.

I am selling our jointly owned building in a local property auction, does your company have especially fast Smithfield solicitors ?

A.

Often house buying solicitors firms may be passive creating further stress and worry to the property conveyancing process.

Our carefully selected solicitors are proactive and attempt to communicate end to end throughout the chain property chain and who always employ advanced automated practice management systems to drive through your move as quickly as possible.

Q.

Does the Smithfield lawyer do any searches on the London Victorian semi-detached home I am intending to buy?

If purchasing and obtaining a mortgage lender requires you to at least the following for properties in Smithfield: Local Authority (personal or official), Drainage and Water Search and Environment Search and, depending on certain criteria, specific searches, which may include a Utilities Search.

Q.

How soon do I need to instruct a conveyancer?

A.

The short answer is, as soon as possible. Early instruction of a conveyancing firm for a sale allows paperwork can be prepared, even before a buyer is found, whereas if you are buying your offer may be taken more seriously if you already have a solicitor instructed.

Q.

Is soil in Smithfield contaminated by titanium?

A.

Some metal contamination may have occurred throughout Smithfield, but some very localised cases of contamination in Smithfield may pose unacceptably high risk. The local authority for Smithfield will be able to provide more detail on cases of contamination.

Q.

The current owner has added inappropriate dormer windows to the flat which I think may infringe on Smithfield conservation area criteria.

A.

City of London local authority LLC1 searches conducted by a property lawyer will determine whether the property is within a conservation area proof of council approval for modifications will be required. In the absence of any appropriate consents, your solicitor will inform you of the alternatives which include requesting from City of London planning authority or purchasing an indemnity insurance policy.

Q.

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

A.

Some lenders have limited the firms who can act for them, potentially creating increased conveyancing costs for buyers. Homeward Legal are able to act for many CML-approved lenders so that you will not be required to pay legal fees for your lender's solicitor.

Q.

I am buying a house in Lowther. Will we need a chancel search?

A.

A property solicitor should confirm that a chancel search be ordered. Although some Parochial Church Councils have chosen to impose chancel repairs on owners of lay rectorships, there is no way 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. For property in the parish of Lowther, it is not safe to rely on the historical behaviour of the parish council alone as a guide.
