Q.

We are trying to find a discount conveyancing estimate. What do we need to consider?

A.

Several solicitors purport to offer supposedly 'the cheapest conveyancing', however extra costs will be included in the solicitor's terms. Any additional costs found in terms of engagement needs to be fair. Our quotes offer a clear statement of your solicitors fees for a standard purchase or sale.

Q.

If I am purchasing in the parish of Clerkenwell St Mark, will it be necessary to get a chancel search?

A.

A solicitor may suggest that a chancel search is taken out. In older areas of Twickenham, chancel repair can be imposed on the owners of a property where Parochial Church Councils may have spared previous owners or tenants. For property in the parish of Clerkenwell St Mark, it is not safe to rely on the historical behaviour of the parish council alone as a guide.

Q.

Soil contamination is monitored frequently. The local authority for Twickenham will be able to provide more detail on cases of contamination.

Q.

Will lawyer in Twickenham do any property on the London thirties end-of-terrace house I am intending to buy?

A.

If purchasing and getting a mortgage the mortgage lender mandates the following Local Authority (personal or official), Drainage and Water Search (CON29DW) and Environmental, as well as any less common searches for example Commons Search.

Q.

How soon is it wise to instruct a conveyancing solicitor in Twickenham?

A.

With a 'no move, no fee' guarantee, instructing as early as possible is better. Early instruction of a solicitor for a sale may mean that prior to marketing the property, documents can be prepared to make it potentially more attractive to motivated buyers, 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.

If land is found to be contaminated, can the soil be inexpensively remediated?

A.

In Twickenham, remediation can often be possible, though expensive, but this is generally the responsibility of local authorities to arrange. For more details, contact Kingston Garden Service Ltd, Bridge Farm Nursery/Hospital Bridge Road, Twickenham, TW2 6LH.

Q.

Does your firm look after auction conveyancing in Twickenham?

A.

Our company is very knowledgeable with property auction conveyancing. It is not unusual for specialist lots for example structurally defective property are included at property auctions and these want extended review. Solicitors therefore strongly advise that buyers at auction select an auction experienced conveyancing company before the property auction to allow adequate time for a full report of the auction legal papers. Immediately following the day of bidding, your lawyer needs to be fully prepared to finalise all of the legal work inside 28 days as conventionally required by the terms of sale.

Q.

Which issues are important to aim for a fast exchange and completion?

A.

As is often reported, faster conveyancing is essential to is to employing a proactive, diligent solicitor. When finding a suitable a solicitor, you should ask the following: Did you experience any delays when requesting a quote? Do they use email? Are they 'no move, no fee'? This can incentivise a faster transaction.
