Numerous conveyancers offer so-called 'the cheapest conveyancing quotes'. However additional costs may increase your final invoice. Additional fees ought to be fair and reasonable.

Q.

Will I need searches for chancel liability? I am buying in Swiss Cottage.

A.

The judgement in a landmark case 10 years ago reaffirmed that 'lay rectors' of property must subsidise

church repairs. As a consequence of a recent Act, interest over any affected land must be registered by October 2013.

Q.

We are buying a home, is it that important that property searches are undertaken?

Q.

We want fast property lawyers in Swiss Cottage - is that your firm?

A.

On the whole solicitors practices are very listless creating huge aggravation to the property conveyancing process. Homeward Legals carefully selected solicitors approach is different - we use the very latest HMRC and Land Registry integrated systems . Importantly we give you a chosen solicitor qualified to communicate from the beginning to the end of the buyer and seller property chain .

We are buying on a Swiss Cottage brownfield site. Can the topsoil still be contaminated?

A.

Soil contamination is tested regularly. Various bodies hold data on land contaminants affecting Swiss Cottage, including local authorities.

Q.

Do fixtures and fittings include things like chairs?

A.

Commonly, there is not a legal definition of 'fixtures and fittings'. Completion or agreement of a fixtures and fittings form is unfortunately often left to the last minute, when a dispute may jeopordise the transaction, and this makes the completion of a fixtures and fittings form essential.

Q.

Does homewardlegal.co.uk look after the conveyancing of auction properties in Swiss Cottage?

A.

Our company is very knowledgeable with property auction conveyancing. Often hard to value homes e. g. development propositions, are listed in auctions and these necessitate additional review before exchange. Lawyers therefore encourage that bidders appoint the lawyer prior to the day of the auction to allow adequate time for a review of the auction legal pack.

Post actual auction you and the conveyancing lawyer must be geared up to finish the legal work in under the 28 day time frame, a requirement of terms of sale.
