Q.

Please confirm the cheapest fee for a £742,000 property? I am looking for an affordable conveyancing estimate.

A.

Various firms offer so-called cheap conveyancing. However additional costs can inflate your solicitor's invoice. Any extra costs which are listed in terms and conditions needs to be reasonable and clear. We offer quotes, not estimates, and clearly state all legal fees you pay for a standard conveyancing transaction.

Q.

Should we get a Homebuyer Report for the house purchase?

A.

It is suggested that all purchasers book a house survey. Many problems affect a property, for example corrosion of pipework. These will not be reported on by a solicitor.

Q.

If I am buying in the parish of Haggerston St Mary, will we need a chancel search?

A.

Your solicitor instructed to handle the transaction could recommend a chancel search. Although some Parochial Church Councils (PCCs) have opted to impose chancel repairs on the owners of land subject to chancel liability, there is no way to be certain that a parish where dues have not recently been paid will continue to be unaffected.

Q.

What are the alternatives if buying a converted flat inside a Redbridge local authority designated conservation area ?

Part of conveyancing for buyers involves ordering of LLC1 searches of Redbridge local authority to establish conservation area status and the requisite consent for alterations. If no appropriate permissions be produced, your South Woodford conveyancer will inform you of the best alternative like taking out an indemnity policy or obtaining retrospective consent.

Q.

What makes conveyancing for a South Woodford property purchase appear to be so drawn out? We had several delays with our previous solicitor.

A.

The South Woodford conveyancing process could be exposed to significant delays, Homeward Legal, however, aim to reduce their impact where feasible to do so.

Q.

Which lender panels in South Woodford are you on?

A.

We are able to work with the vast majority of lenders registered with the Council of Mortgage Lenders.

Your solicitor will be able to provide more information.

Q.

Does your company handle the legal conveyancing of auction properties in South Woodford?

A.

Homeward Legal is able to work with residential property auction protocols. Frequently unusual auction lots e. g. un-mortgageable properties, are included in property auctions which tend to necessitate more exploration. Lawyers therefore strongly advise that auction buyers formally appoint an auction experienced property conveyancing lawyer well in advance of the auction to allow sufficient time for a title report of the auction legal papers. Immediately following the day of the auction, the conveyancing lawyer is able to concentrate on rapidly carry out the legal work in less than 28 days, a requirement of terms of sale.

Q.

What kind of exploration in respect to the potential risk of floods in the Redbridge region will a property lawyer in South Woodford advise on?

A.

A critical step in the legal due diligence process of purchasing a property involves your lawyer conducting environmental searches that set out certain details on the local South Woodford flood risk.
