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.

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.

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.

Do we need a building survey for our house we are interested in buying?

A.

We heavily advise that you order a survey. There are a wide range of defects which can negatively affect a property. These include wet rot and cracks around door frames. These will not be reported on by a solicitor.

Q.

I have to choose fast Upminster Bridge conveyancing solicitors - is that your company?

A.

Annoyingly, far too many property solicitors companies are ponderous adding additional stress to selling a home. Our method is to use new productivity systems . We always assign you a regulated property lawyer practiced at communicate with the complete buyer and seller chain like mortgage lenders, for a quick move.

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.

Should I be worried about gazumping?

A.

This arises when a seller accepts one purchaser's offer and then refuses it in favour of a higher offer. This may happen weeks into a transaction. Because acceptance of an offer is not binding on the seller until exchange of contracts, there is a danger of gazumping. Instructing your solicitor early, and even before acceptance of an offer should help to mitigate this risk.
