Q.

Please confirm the cheapest fee for a £519,000 property? We are trying to find low cost conveyancing in South Acton.

A.

Both high-street and online firms offer cheap conveyancing. However additional costs are often hiding in the terms that unknowing homeowners have not reviewed Any fees which are listed in terms of engagement should be fair and reasonable. They come into force only if your solicitor is required to perform tasks outside a normal transaction on your behalf, which could not be anticipated at the start of the process. A quote should state third party costs, termed disbursements, to be paid.

Q.

How long can the conveyancing process need, on average? The house being transacted is also in the area.

A.

The time needed to transfer a home can vary, according to a number of issues which may affect the property. With Homeward Legal, the matter is undertaken with the utmost care and speed.

Q.

At what point is it appropriate to get a conveyancing solicitor to handle our sale?

If you use a firm offering a 'no move, no fee' guarantee, the earlier in the process you can instruct a firm, the better, as conveyancing involves several tasks that can be performed straight away. Instructing a firm to handle your South Acton conveyancing early for a sale enables documents can be prepared earlier, considerably accelerating the whole process, whereas if you are buying your offer may be taken more seriously if you already have a solicitor instructed.

Q.

What investigation regarding the risk and history of floods in the Ealing area will my South Acton solicitor check?

A.

An important step in the legal due diligence process involves a conveyancer conducting environmental searches that set out specific information on the South Acton flood risk area. Also as an additional measure the property lawyer in South Acton may propose a more detailed (e.g. Homcheck) detailed local flood search.

Q.

Does the HS2 route impact Acocks Green property?

A.

Yes, High Speed 2 Phase 1 will affect numerous houses in Acocks Green. Conveyancing solicitors can order a HS2 search to investigate the impact on a particular property.

Q.

Do you need a chancel liability search? We are buying in South Acton.

A.

Chancel liability can require some South Acton home owners to subsidise repairs to specific local church buildings. Indemnity policies can be arranged if chancel liability is likely to be enforced. Your conveyancing solicitor will suggest an appropriate indemnity policy to address chancel liability. South Acton Church of England properties where a chancel search may be necessary include All Saints Church.

Q.

How is stamp duty measured and what amount should we budget for a £1143000 South Acton residential property?
