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.

Will we need a chancel search if I am intending to buy in the parish of Greenford?

A.

Regardless of the St Johns Wood parish in which you are buying, the lawyer might recommend that a chancel search be taken out. Although some parish councils have

chosen to charge chancel repairs on the current owners, it cannot be guaranteed that a parish where dues have not recently been paid will continue to be unaffected.

Q.

What do we need to be aware of if we acquire a period house in a Westminster local authority conservation area ?

A.

Part of conveyancing involves the ordering of searches of the local authority to see conservation area status and consent for any changes. Searches are priced at cost to the purchaser.

Q.

What type of local authority searches in connection with the risk of floods at Westminster will a St Johns Wood property lawyer conduct for a buy to let house we are going to buy?

A.

A property solicitor will apply for formal property environmental searches, which include St Johns Wood flood risk information.

Q.

My husband and I are interested in purchasing in St Johns Wood. Can I check that the residence is in a designated conservation area?

A.

There are numerous conservation areas around St Johns Wood. Your conveyancing solicitor will be able to advise further and address the consequences of purchasing property in a conservation area, regarding specific conservation areas in St Johns Wood.

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.

We have had a quote from you. Might we be billed any hidden costs?

A.

Homeward Legal will never charge any additional charges for conveyancing in St Johns Wood. Some firms only provide estimates disguised as quotes. The final bill you receive may be much more.
