Q.

How do I get a discount conveyancing quote?

A.

This matter catches out many home owners, and can leave them paying far more in fees than they budgeted, and many solicitors purport to offer cheap conveyancing. Often additional costs are often hiding in the terms, left unread by preoccupied home owners Any charges listed in terms of engagement needs to be fair. They only apply to matters if the solicitor must complete unanticipated additional work for you, which could not be anticipated at the start of the process.

Q.

I am purchasing a converted chapel in Whetstone. Is a chancel search needed?

A.

The conveyancing lawyer is likely to recommend a chancel search. Although some Parochial Church Councils have determined to charge chancel repairs on owners of affected property, a conveyancing solicitor cannot verify that a parish where dues have not recently been paid will not automatically be the case for future owners, so it can be difficult to use this as a guide.

Q.

Might our legal fees hide any extra costs?

A.

Regrettably, buyer should read the terms of their conveyancing quote careful to identify any hidden fees. Homeward Legal do not charge any hidden extra charges. It may be that your solicitor recommends some additional work, like a will, . Any such fees would only be charged once you are aware of the circumstances.

Q.

Why might the purchase conveyancing process be so drawn out?

A.

Conveyancing could take more time even in the best of circumstances. Some delays are out of the solicitor's control. We endeavour to minimise the cost of these delays by driving the transaction forward.

Q.

Could mercury (Hg) contaminate land in Thamesmead?

A.

Thamesmead agriculture or industry can cause top-soil contamination. Data on many contaminants, such as groundwater contamination, will be included in an environmental search.

Q.

Will I need to get a chancel search? I am purchasing near a priory in Thamesmead.

A.

In Thamesmead, some owners can be required to contribute towards maintenance of church property in the locality. Insurance may be available to protect a buyer should a Thamesmead Parochial Church Council enforce liability. Thamesmead church lands include Church of the Cross and St Paul.
