Q.

How do I find the best conveyancing rates for a £265k house?

A.

Confusion over this issue catches out many homeowners, and can leave them paying far more in fees than they budgeted, and many firms purport to offer so-called cheap conveyancing, however additional costs are often hiding in the terms and conditions which unwary homeowners fail to check. Any fees found in terms and conditions should be clearly defined. We offer quotes, not estimates, and clearly state all legal fees you pay for a standard conveyancing transaction.

Q.

Lawyers in St Johns Wood conduct official searches if acting for a home purchaser, but which specific ones?

A.

If purchasing and applying for a mortgage, your lender expects at least the following Local Authority (personal or official), Drainage Search (Con29DW) and Environment Search, and possibly specific local searches, which might include Cheshire Brine Search.

Q.

Godiva Mortgages will be our mortgage lender - what do I need to know?

A.

Some lenders are now reducing the size of their 'solicitor panel', which may result in increased conveyancing costs for buyers. We are able to act on behalf of most UK mortgage lenders, ensuring that an additional chosen solicitor will not be required to act for your lender.

Q.

We are buying on a St Johns Wood brownfield land. Could the soil be contaminated by industrial waste?

A.

Some metal contamination may have occurred throughout St Johns Wood, but contaminated land areas are labelled as such if the danger to the environment is judged to be too great. Metal contamination of soil in St Johns Wood is more likely to occur near ex-industrial sites or ex-landfills. Data on other contaminants, like groundwater contaminants like landfill leachate, will also be included in an environmental search.

Q.

Should I get a chancel liability search if you are buying close by a church built in around the 1500s in St Johns Wood?

A.

Some owners in St Johns Wood can be required to cover the cost of repairs to specific local church buildings. A chancel search will confirm whether liability for St Johns Wood properties is likely to exist. A conveyancing solicitor will be able to advise further. Church lands in the local area where a chancel search may be appropriate include Church.

Q.

With a property ready to buy, and no chain, how do we guarantee a fast exchange and completion in St Johns Wood?
