Q.

There are lots of 'cheap' offers, but how do we find a good one? I am looking for discount conveyancing.

A.

Many law firms advertise supposedly cheap conveyancing, but additional costs will be included in the solicitor's terms. Any fees which are listed in terms of engagement needs to be fair. The Homeward Legal quote calculator will confirm the exact legal fees based on the property you are buying.

Q.

The internet is full of many publications all about do it yourself conveyancing such as Straightforward Guide to the Process of Conveyancing by Frances James . Do I therefore want to use a conveyancing solicitor in Snaresbrook ?

A.

Technically there are no arguments why a home buyer cant conduct your own conveyancing on your own. In reality however, a conveyancing solicitor is familiar with a large number of functions such as applying for and interpreting office copies and representing the lender many of which need a qualified professional. AT any rate firms and their solicitors are liable to be required to possess the appropriate cover in order to protect you in the event of omissions.

Q.

We are buying on a brownfield site. Is the soil likely to remain contaminated by waste minerals like cadmium (Cd)?

Metal contamination may have occurred throughout Snaresbrook, but if significant harm could be caused to people or protected species by the contamination, it is likely to be labelled contaminated land. Also considering issues such as water contaminants such as solvents and chlorinated solvents, contaminants affecting Snaresbrook property will be factored into an environmental search.

Q.

Does your company manage auction conveyancing in Snaresbrook?

A.

Yes - Homeward Legal is very capable working with property auction procedures. Regularly unusually constructed properties for example building plots, are sold in property auctions and these require increasedby the conveyancing lawyer. We therefore recommend that bidders formally appoint their lawyer prior to the day of the auction to allow for a full report.

Following the auction a conveyancing lawyer will be geared up to rapidly conclude the legal process in the usual 28 days, a requirement of terms and conditions of sale.

Q.

Which local authority looks after Snaresbrook?

A.

Snaresbrook is located in London Borough of Redbridge Council, PO Box No2, Town Hall, 128- 142 High Road, Essex, IG1 1DD, phone: 020 8554 5000

Q.

Will we need a chancel search if we are buying in the parish of Poplar?

A.

A solicitor responsible for your move is likely to recommend that a chancel search is ordered, regardless of the parish in which the house being purchased is located. Chancel repair has the potential to be imposed on the current owners of a house where Parochial Church Councils (PCCs) have not imposed the same liability on the last owners, so the solicitor will be unable to make any guarantees, and will recommend insurance.

Q.

What is gazumping?

A.

The convention of choosing to reject a previously accepted offer on a property after a second buyer has made a better offer is referred to as gazumping. Though being gazumped is uncommon when property prices are falling, there is still a chance. The first step in reducing the chance that gazumping will effect you is to instruct a fast, efficient solicitor as early as possible.

Q.

Is it necessary that we get a chancel search? I am buying on the same road as a vicarage in Snaresbrook.

A.

In Snaresbrook, some owners can be required to subsidise upkeep of churches. Following a change in the law, interest over any affected land must be registered by October 2013. This will make it easier to identify affected property through a chancel search.
