Q.

How do we get a discount conveyancing quote?

A.

Many property lawyers advertise so-called 'the cheapest conveyancing quotes'. Often extra costs are often hiding in small print. These terms are often ignored by excited buyers, eager to get underway. Any extra costs needs to be fair. They be applied only where your solicitor is required to complete unexpected extra work for you, which could not be anticipated at the start of the process. Our online calculator will create an accurate quote for your buy.

Q.

We are buying a 1960's property. Do we need conveyancing searches?

A.

Searches are questions requested by the buyer's property solicitor, and refer specifically to issues with the property's title.

Q.

Which lender panels in Soho are you a member of?

A.

Most lenders in Soho are on our panels. Lenders and mortgage specialists in Soho include Covent Gardens

Finance Ltd, 11-14 Hanover Pl, London, WC2E 9JP, Hinduja Bank (Switzerland) Ltd, New Zealand House/80 Haymarket, London, SW1Y 4TE, and Bolt Allen, 90 Long Acre, London, WC2E 9RA.

Q.

Should you get a chancel search? I am purchasing a property close to a priory built in the 16th Century in Soho.

A.

Repair costs resulting from chancel liability can total hundreds of thousands of pounds. Insurance may be available to protect a buyer should a Soho Parochial Church Council enforce liability. Soho ecclesiastical properties include St Anne's Curch.

Q.

Will it be necessary to get a chancel search if we are buying in the parish of St Botolph without Aldgate?

A.

The conveyancer might recommend that a chancel search is ordered. Through some Parochial Church Councils (PCCs) have decided to exact chancel repairs on the current owners of lay rectorships, a solicitor cannot state with certainty that a parish where chancel repair fees have not been paid previously will remain liability-free for new owners.

Q.

Do I need to get a Homebuyer Report for this property purchase in Soho?

A.

It is highly recommended that all purchasers in Soho book a house survey when buying in Soho. A wide range of issues will impact a property, including settlement.

Q.

What are the issues if purchasing a modified home in a Westminster planning authority designated conservation area ?

A.

An integral part of the legal due diligence when buying a property includes the making of enquiries of Westminster local authority to establish conservation area status and the requisite formal approval for any modifications. LLC1 searches are not fees and are charged without markup to the client.

Q.

How do I check if a building is in a conservation area?

A.

Conservation areas detail areas of historical merit. Your solicitor will advise further, in regard to relevant conservation area restrictions in Soho.
