How do I find a cheap solicitor in Staines to buy a house?


The confusion over this topic catches out many buyers and sellers, and can leave them paying far more in fees than they budgeted, and many law firms advertise cheap conveyancing, but extra costs are often hiding in the solicitor's terms. Additional fees which are listed in the terms needs to be clearly defined. Applicable disbursements should be included on your conveyancing quote based on the property you intend to buy, our online quote calculator will generate an accurate statement of conveyancing fees.


At what stage should I set up the home removal company?


Best advice is to avoid arranging a removal firm until such time as you have set your date that generally happens once final contracts are signed. Try White Van Man, 5 Arnold Rd, Staines, TW18 1LY Tel: 07871 380679 or 2 Step Moves, 41 Bingham Dr, Staines, TW18 1QX Call: 01784 422013.


We really need to exchange on the legal process our jointly owned apartment as quickly as possible, are you fast home moving solicitors in Staines ?


Regularly Staines solicitors practices can be far too inactive which can cause unnecessary uncertainty to the home moving process.

Homeward Legals method is different - we use the latest land registry integrated systems .

Importantly we give you a conveyancing solicitor qualified to communicate from the start to the end of the home buyer and seller chain .


I am purchasing in Staines, do we need searches?


Searches are an accepted pack of enquiries requested by the purchaser's property solicitor. Searches are very useful whether buying with a mortgage or not, but only relate to legal considerations.


We are buying on a new-build ex-industrial site. Is the topsoil likely to be contaminated?


With this region's industrial history in parts of Staines, soil contamination is difficult to avoid. Land may also be contaminated by other sources, including groundwater contaminants like oil.


Which factors are important to arrange a fast conveyancing process?


Instructing a proactive, diligent conveyancing solicitor is essential to fast conveyancing. There are numerous things you, as the buyer, could do. These include:

  • asking for property searches to be ordered immediately
  • quickly answering your conveyancing solicitor's questions (by email if possible)
  • arranging any finances require to complete the purchase


What does a Staines conveyancing solicitor do when the flat is within a registered conservation area and has ugly windows fitted?


Your property solicitor will make enquiries to verify whether your new home is within a conservation area, and if so whether any modifications have the required consent from the local planning authority.


We are intending to purchase a converted chapel in West Molesey. Will a chancel search be required?


Whichever Staines parish in which you are purchasing, a Staines conveyancing solicitor may suggest a chancel search. In Staines's much older areas, chancel repair has the potential to be imposed on current owners of a property where church councils have not imposed the same liability on the last owners, so the solicitor will be unable to make any guarantees, and will recommend insurance.
