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.

What are the pitfalls if we buy a converted house located inside a Redbridge council conservation area ?

Part of the property legal includes the ordering of searches of Redbridge local authority to establish conservation area status and permission for any developments. .

How is stamp duty determined, how much should it be on a £379k property?

Q.

How much time can conveyancing legal work generally take?

For most residential property, the amount of time taken to transfer residential property can vary. This is influenced by numerous considerations. These may include cases where a property has a mortgage. Our solicitors ensure your transaction is handled as fast as possible, without compromising on service.

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.

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

A.

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.
