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.

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.

Does homewardlegal.co.uk advise on the conveyancing for auction properties in St Johns Wood?

A.

Homeward Legal is very knowledgeable with property auction procedures. Usually difficult to value buildings like investment properties, are

included in auctions which tend to necessitate extended exploration. We therefore strongly suggest that bidders formally appoint a local lawyer well before the auction to allow time for a detailed investigation. Following the auction day, a lawyer needs to be focused on finalise the legal work within 4 weeks, a normal requirement of terms of sale.

Q.

Which local authority looks after St Johns Wood?

A.

St Johns Wood is located in Westminster City Council, PO Box 240, Westminster City Hall, 64 Victoria Street, London, SW1E 6QP phone:

Q.

In 2 months we are looking to be finally moving out of our semi detached property in St Johns Wood to a bigger home in Little Venice . What is the best point to book a removal company?

A.

Most solicitors usually recommend that buyers delay arranging removals until after formal exchange of contracts as prior to this in all probability a moving date wont have been decided. Local removals companies include Fort Box, 6 Hall Rd, London, NW8 9PA Telephone: 020 7148 7000.

Q.

Would acquiring a home buyers survey be necessary when purchasing a property in St Johns Wood?

A.

It is highly recommended that all purchasers arrange a property survey. There are a range of problems that can negatively affect a property, which include rotten roof timbers. Such issues will not be considered during the conveyancing work itself.

Q.

How much would my conveyancing searches be?

A.

With Homeward Legal's conveyancing service, St Johns Wood clients are required to pay at most £249 for the standard search bundle. Conveyancing searches are charged 'at cost'.

Q.

Our agent has offered a law firm. Must we instruct them?

A.

If you choose a conveyancer referred through this route, you the agent can use their influence persuade a slow solicitor to work faster. These referrals need to be weighed up against alternatives, as there is a risk that an agent may choose the conveyancer who pays out the highest referral fee, not the most suitable for you.
