Q.

What do you charge for the legal fees on a £213,000 property? We need to find affordable conveyancing in Teddington.

A.

Various conveyancers claim to offer theoretically cheap conveyancing. However additional charges can inflate your solicitor's invoice. Any costs listed in terms of engagement should be fair and clearly defined. Any disbursements should be included on your conveyancing quote. The Homeward Legal quote calculator will confirm the exact legal fees based on the property you are buying.

Q.

We are buying on a Teddington former industrial site. Can the top-soil still be contaminated?

A.

Teddington industry and natural causes can cause soil contamination. The local authority for Teddington will be able to provide more detail on cases of contamination.

Q.

Will I need to get a chancel liability search when my partner and I are buying a Teddington residence by parish land?

A.

Property owners near to a church in the area are expected to contribute towards the cost of repairs, as a result of chancel repair liability. Owners who have bought property prior to 2003 may

be totally unaware that a liability exists if a chancel search was not carried out. Your conveyancing solicitor will suggest an appropriate indemnity policy to address chancel liability. Teddington ecclesiastical properties include St Mark, St Mary with St Alban, and St Nicholas.

Q.

Will a conveyancer in Teddington get any property on the London Sixties terraced house I am buying?

A.

If purchasing and obtaining a mortgage the mortgage lender expects a solicitor to get at least specific searches, including these searches - Local Authority, Drainage Search (Con29DW or personal) and Environment Search, and possibly less common searches, like a Commons Registration Search.

Q.

Will the title report compiled by the conveyancing solicitor in Teddington give details about the applicable rates of the council tax on a Band F cottage prior to exchange of contracts?

A.

Your lawyer will contact the local council to find out the current council tax band and rates, which will then be set out in the report on title. The correct rates for properties in Teddington are set out in detail on the local authority site.

Q.

At what point do I need to instruct a solicitor in Teddington?

A.

With a firm offering a 'no move, no fee' conveyancing quote, the faster you instruct the better, as conveyancing involves a number of tasks that can be carried out immediately. Prompt instruction of a firm for a sale enables information, especially from slow third-parties, can be requested even prior to accepting an offer, whereas if you are buying you can shave days off the process by having the details of your instructed solicitor ready when you make an offer.

Q.

Is a home buyers survey necessary when we are buying a property, irrespective of its condition?

A.

It is recommended that all buyers in Teddington arrange a home surveyor to carry out a survey. Buyers should be aware that there are many problems that have a negative impact on a property, such as cracks in walls and cracked roof tiles.

Q.

Will the form for fixtures and fittings list items like electric or gas fires?

A.

Mainly, fixtures are fixed elements, such as shelving to the property, whereas fixtures are free-standing. To avoid misunderstandings, a fixtures and fittings form should be agreed and will save considerable frustration later.
