Q.

Does your company do the legal conveyancing of property auction properties in Southall?

A.

Homeward Legal is used to working with sellers at auction. Traditionally specialist homes are included at auction which necessitate additional inquiries. Solicitors therefore

suggest auction buyers to formally instruct an affordable lawyer well in advance of the actual auction to allow time for an investigation of the auction pack. Post actual auction you and the lawyer needs to be fully prepared to finalise the conveyancing process in less than 28 days as usually required by the terms of sale.

Q.

Our local agent has offered a conveyancing solicitor which they often use. Do we need to instruct them?

A.

Estate agent recommendations are a commonplace way for home buyers to find a solicitor, however, such referrals should be compared to other online or local firms, as an agent may select the conveyancer who pays out the highest referral fee, not the most appropriate choice.

Q.

Do you recommend that I get a chancel search? We are buying a apartment in Southall.

A.

Owners of property near to a local church may be required to contribute towards the cost of repairs. This is referred to as chancel repair liability. Parochial Church Councils in Southall must register their interest over property by October 2013, simplifying the chancel search process. A solicitor will be able to advise further. Southall Church of England properties where a chancel search may be appropriate include Christ the Redeemer, Emmanuel, Holy Trinity and St George.

What can searches cost?

A.

Searches range in cost, subject to which searches have been ordered. They are disbursements paid to a third party, and are charged 'at cost'.

Q.

We are on a tight deadline and need ensure a fast conveyancing transaction, what do we need to do?

A.
