Q.

I need a discount conveyancing estimate. Can you assist?

A.

Lack of clarity over this topic catches out many buyers, and can leave them paying far more in fees than they budgeted, and many property lawyers claim to offer 'the cheapest conveyancing'. Unfortunately extra fees may be added into small print. Any additional costs listed in the small print needs to be clearly defined. Any disbursements should also be clearly stated on your conveyancing quote. Our quotes offer a clear statement of your solicitors fees for a standard purchase or sale.

Q.

How many mortgage lenders in Turnham Green do you work with?

A.

Most lenders in Turnham Green are on our panels. Turnham Green lenders and mortgage specialists include Hall Alexander, Building 1/Chiswick Pk/Chiswick High Rd, London, W4 5BE. Your solicitor can deal with the particular enquiries and searches your lender requires.

Q.

May the conveyancing cover any hidden fees?

A.

Regrettably, hidden fees are not uncommon in conveyancing. We never hide any hidden extra fees. Rarely, your solicitor recommends some additional work, like for shared ownership, but you will be made aware of any fees pertaining to such work before they are incurred.

Q.

Is Turnham Green soil likely to be contaminated by selenium?

A.

Though the dangers are usually minor, an area will only be identified as 'contaminated land' if the risk to human life or the environment is deemed unacceptable. Also considering issues such as industrial storage, contaminants affecting Turnham Green property will be factored into an environmental search.

Q.

For fast legal work on the purchase of a £625,000 residence, what should we ensure to speed up our transaction?

A.

As is often reported, instructing a communicative solicitor is crucial to moving faster. Consider the following:

  • Do they use email as the preferred mode of communication?
  • Do they offer 'instant' online quotes?
  • Do they offer 'no move, no fee' protection? This can incentivise a faster transaction.

Q.

Why could conveyancing work to buy in Turnham Green require weeks?

A.

The conveyancing process will occasionally take more time than budgeted, Homeward Legal, however, aim to diminish the effect of these delays by, for example, ordering searches as early as possible. Common delays include the time taken to return management information.

Q.

As a consequence of the terrible flooding in the UK in April 2012, I am questioning if environmental searches won't be sufficient?

A.

A diligent solicitor in Turnham Green will consider apply for flood searches if the standard conveyancing searches determine a any kind of Turnham Green flood risk.

For more peace of mind perhaps you could contact a neighbour.

Q.

Will we need a chancel search? I am purchasing near a 1600s 'parson's close' in Turnham Green.

A.

As a result of chancel repair liability, the owners of property in Turnham Green which was once owned by a 'lay rectors' can be liable for repairs to nearby church property. A chancel search will confirm whether liability for Turnham Green properties is likely to exist. Ecclesiastical properties in the area where chancel liability may apply include Christ Church.
