Q.

I need an affordable Upton Park conveyancing quote. What should I check?

A.

Numerous firms offer supposedly cheap conveyancing quotes, but additional fees may be added into the terms and conditions. Our quotes are not estimates, stating all the solicitors fees you will pay for a standard sale or purchase.

Q.

How many weeks can conveyancing to transact a house often take, on average? We are buying in Upton Park.

A.

For the majority of home movers, the number of weeks needed to transact a home does vary. This wide range results from a number of issues affecting the property. These may include cases where a property has a mortgage. For most firms in England and Wales, the average is between 8 to 12 weeks, whereas Homeward Legal drive the process forwards, completing within eight weeks.

Q.

When should I arrange a solicitor in Upton Park?

A.

Whether you are buying or selling in Upton Park, the sooner you instruct a solicitor, the better, as conveyancing involves several tasks that can begin straight away. Early instruction of a conveyancing solicitor

to act on your Upton Park sale or purchase for a purchase allows you will the details of your Upton Park solicitor ready when you make an offer, or, if you are selling a property, information, especially from slow third-parties, can be requested even prior to accepting an offer.

Q.

Is a property survey required if we are buying a property in Upton Park?

A.

We heavily advise that purchasers in Upton Park arrange a home surveyor to undertake a survey. It is a fact that there are a range of problems that will impact a property, which will not be covered by the legal work. These include cracks in walls.

Q.

Santander is going to be our lender - what will I need to be aware of?

A.

Some lenders are now reducing their 'solicitor panel'. For buyers, this can result in significantly greater conveyancing costs. Homeward Legal can act for many mortgage lenders so that the buyer will not have to pay your lender's conveyancing fees.

Q.

What kind of due diligence in connection with the risk of flooding to properties in Newham will my conveyancer in Upton Park advise us on?

A.

An important part of the legal process involved in buying a home involves a solicitor applying for property environmental searches that go in detail with regard to Upton Park flood risk area data. At the time of writing indications at the Environment Agency flood reports website do not show any active flood warnings in Upton Park.

Q.

Is contaminated land in Upton Park an issue?

A.

Residential property will be contaminated by several environmental concerns, such as civil aviation activity in the area. An environmental search will reveal this in more detail.

Q.

What do we need to be aware of if we buy a flat inside a Newham planning authority conservation area ?

A.

Part of the due diligence for buyers involves the application for searches of the Newham authority to check conservation area status and the requisite consent for modifications. .
