Q.

Local Upminster attractions

A.

The nearest hospital to Upminster is St Georges Hornchuch.

Q.

We need to find low cost conveyancing in Upminster. What do I need to check for?

A.

Both high-street and online solicitors offer supposedly cheap conveyancing quotes. Unfortunately additional costs may inflate your final invoice. Our quotes are not estimates, stating all the solicitors fees you will pay for a standard sale or purchase.

Q.

Does the Upminster conveyancer carry out any property on the London Fifties semi-detached townhouse I am purchasing

A.

When you are applying for a mortgage the building society of bank will expect at least the following for Upminster: Local Authority Search, Drainage Search (Con29DW or personal) and Environment Search, as well as any area-specific searches for instance Cheshire Brine Search.

Q.

Do you recommend taking precautions to get out of paying out for stamp duty to the Revenue?

A.

Stamp duty is usually payable for property purchases over £125,000. Homeward Legal firmly advise against any stamp duty scheme, because these schemes are highly expensive and very risky.

Q.

National Counties Building Society is going to be our mortgage lender - what will we need to check?

A.

A small number of lenders have reduced the number of firms on their approved panel, potentially creating increased legal costs for buyers. We can act for the majority of lenders in the UK to ensure that you will not need to pay the lender's costs.

Q.

My estate agent has suggested a property solicitor. Should I use this solicitor?

A.

The agent will often endorse a law firm to handle your conveyancing. Such referrals should be compared to other online or local firms, as an agent may choose whichever firm pays the most per referral, not a firm with local expertise and a solid reputation.

Q.

We are buying in Upminster on a newly development brownfield site. Could the topsoil be contaminated by industrial waste like vanadium (V)?

A.

Upminster industrial or agricultural can cause soil contamination. Land may also be contaminated by other sources, including water contaminants such as household chemicals.

Q.

Why does conveyancing be so delayed?

A.

Conveyancing will occasionally be held up even in the best of circumstances. Sometimes, the causes are regrettably out of the solicitors' control, Homeward Legal, however, strive to reduce the cost of these delays, where possible,.

Q.

Is it important that I get a chancel search? We are purchasing a Upminster residence next to a church.

A.

Property owners in Upminster may be subject to 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 solicitor can provide more details. Church lands in the local area where chancel liability may apply include Hornchurch St Matthew, North Ockendon St Mary Magdalene and St Laurence.
