Q.

What do you charge for the legal fees on a £673,000 house? We need to find a fixed rate conveyancing quote.

A.

This catches out many buyers, and can leave them paying far more in fees than they budgeted, and many solicitors purport to offer so-called cheap conveyancing quotes, but additional charges may increase the final bill. Additional fees included in terms of engagement ought to be fair and clearly defined. A quote for conveyancing in Upminster Bridge should also clearly state any disbursements to be paid.Homeward Legal quotes are not estimates, and offer a clear statement of your legal fees for a standard conveyancing transaction.

Q.

I am buying in Upminster Bridge. Are there any conservation areas in the area?

A.

These areas protect areas designated as being of historical or architectural value. These restrictions may impose liability on a buyer for unauthorised alterations made by previous owners, but the benefits include security that the surroundings are unlikely to change.

Q.

If I am purchasing near Upminster Bridge, in the parish of St Andrew Holborn, do we need a chancel search?

A.

Whichever Upminster Bridge parish in which you are purchasing, a conveyancing solicitor could advise a chancel search. Although some

church councils have chosen to charge chancel repairs on the current owners of land subject to chancel liability, a conveyancing solicitor cannot verify that a parish which has not imposed liability will not continue to be so, so the solicitor will be unable to make any guarantees, and will recommend insurance.

Q.

How many mortgage lenders in Upminster Bridge do you work with?

A.

Homeward Legal have worked with the majority of lenders. A number of mortgage specialists operate in Upminster Bridge, including Coversure Insurance, 136 North St, Hornchurch, RM11 1SU, Fairway Mortgage Solutions, 3B Hubert Rd, Brentwood, CM14 4JE, and Abacus Financial Service Ltd, 74 Hainault Rd, Romford, RM5 3AL. The lawyer handling the work for your Upminster Bridge purchase or sale will be able to address any specific requests your lender may have.

Q.

What are our options if we buy a maisonette in a Havering planning authority designated conservation area ?

A.

An integral part of conveyancing involves making enquiries of Havering council to check conservation area status and consent for developments. .

Q.

How does the conveyancing work require weeks? We had several delays with our previous solicitor.

A.

The legal work required to buy or sell property will occasionally be exposed to significant delays. We aim to lessen their impact wherever feasible by chasing for prompt responses.

Q.

Does anybody hold some data about the Upminster Bridge conservation areas?

A.

English Heritage, a government body, have created information on the condition (poor to good) of conservation areas in England along with the exposure to the area falling into disrepair.

Local Upminster Bridge conservation areas including the historic layout of roads, removal of chimney stacks or street guard rails etc. are overseen by the local authority (Havering).

Q.

For our lender, we have chosen Nationwide Building Society - what do I need to check?

A.

When buying with a mortgage, your lender will require legal work to be carried out on their behalf. Buyers need to be aware that some lenders have reduced the number of firms able to act for them. Homeward Legal can act on behalf of many lenders in the UK so that the buyer will not have to pay an additional fee for your lender's solicitor.
