Q.

I am trying to find a cheap Upton solicitor for purchasing a house. Can you assist?

A.

Confusion over this topic affects many home owners who opted for a very cheap quote, only to be stung later in the conveyancing process. Many firms purport to offer theoretically cheap conveyancing quotes, however additional fees are often hiding in the solicitor's terms of engagement which unwary home owners fail to check.

Q.

Are any of the Upton conservation areas are in a poor state?

A.

A recent evaluation of the condition of conservation areas in Upton is reported by English Heritage and the following details are currently viewable at English Heritage - St Crispin Hospital with Upton determined to be very bad with medium vulnerability and condition improving significantly.

Q.

The vendor looks to have fitted ill-suited roof aerials on the home which I think might possibly conflict with St Crispin Hospital conservation area rules.

A.

The conveyancing solicitor will make enquiries to confirm whether your proposed purchase is affected by a designated conservation area, and if so, whether any modifications have appropriate

consent from the Bexley authority. In the absence of any appropriate consents, your solicitor will advise you of all options, which include obtaining from the appropriate local authority or an indemnity insurance policy.

Q.

Does the lawyer in Upton order any searches on the London Regency detached home I am buying?

A.

When you are getting a mortgage, your lender expects a solicitor to get at least specific searches, including the following Local Authority, Drainage and Water Search (CON29DW) and Environment Search and, depending on certain criteria, less common searches e.g. a Commons Registration (CON290).

Q.

Our estate agent in Preston has suggested the property lawyer whom they usually use. Is it advisable to use this firm?

A.

Both agents and mortgage brokers may endorse a law firm. Such referrals should be compared to other online or local firms, as an agent may decide to recommend the firm which pays to the largest referral fee, not the law firm with the best reputation.

Q.

What can contaminate land in Upton. Are these thoroughly investigated?

A.

Residential property in Upton is contaminated by numerous natural and human-influenced issues, and factors such as waste disposal sites should be considered as part of the appropriate search.

Q.

Is a deed of postponement passed on at cost?

A.

A quote should clearly state all disbursements and fees. This charge is a fee not a disbursement, and should be included in your quote.

Q.

Principality Building Society will be our mortgage lender - what do I need to consider?

A.

When arranging a mortgage to purchase a property, your lender will require legal work to be carried out on their behalf. Some lenders have limited the number of solicitors who can act for them. We will act for many lenders so that you will not be required to pay the lender's costs.
