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


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.


How much is the council tax on a residential semi-detached Band C property in Snaresbrook?


Ordinarily, the report on title should include the appropriate Redbridge council tax band. Correct rates for homes in Snaresbrook are set out at the Redbridge local authority site. As at, 10 July 2012, rates are as follows:

  • Band A - £935.00
  • Band B - £1,091.00

What type of analysis regarding the risk of possible flooding around Redbridge will a conveyancing solicitor in Snaresbrook give an account of?

An essential part of the legal due diligence procedure of buying a property involves your conveyancing solicitor carrying out property conveyancing searches that offer you certain details about the local Snaresbrook flood risk. As an additional measure, a lawyer in Snaresbrook may propose an inexpensive (around twenty pounds) and more specialist local Snaresbrook flood search.


When do we need to find a conveyancer?


Whether you are buying or selling in Snaresbrook, the sooner the better, as conveyancing involves a number of tasks that can be carried out very early in the process. Instructing your solicitor sooner can reduce any chance of the transaction aborting.


Does your company manage auction conveyancing in Snaresbrook?


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.


Is contaminated land a concern in Snaresbrook?


A broad range of contaminants caused by human activities can quickly spoil Snaresbrook property. Issues such as environmental radon sources will be investigated during the conveyancing process.


Will our conveyancing fees take into account any additional fees?


Homeward Legal do not charge any extra, hidden costs for conveyancing in Snaresbrook. It may be that a separate piece of work is also advised, a lease extension. Any such fees would only be charged once you are aware of the circumstances.


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.
