Q.

How do I find fixed rate conveyancing?

A.

Many buyers seeking discount conveyancing are caught out by the lure of very low conveyancing rates. Many law firms promote supposedly cheap conveyancing quotes. However additional costs will be included in the solicitor's terms of engagement which buyers may have not read carefully Additional fees should be reasonable and clear.

Q.

Q.

Does my solicitor in Uxbridge do any property conveyancing searches on the London Sixties semi-detached cottage I am intending to purchase?

A.

When you are obtaining a mortgage the mortgage lender requires you to a solicitor to get at least a specified set of searches, including - Local Authority (personal or official), Drainage and Water Search (CON29DW or personal) and Environmental, and occasionally area-specific searches for example Utilities report.

Q.

Flood risk searches may be conveyancing protocol but considering climate change such as the Met Office warning of more intense rainfall are they actually good enough to find out sufficient information about the ever changing Uxbridge future flood risk?

A.

A thorough Uxbridge conveyancing solicitor will suggest that you apply for flood searches (Landmark database search) if the environmental conveyancing searches determine a local Uxbridge flood risk.

For more peace of mind you can always converse with a next door neighbour or regional Hillingdon flood damage expert for example: Alpha Restoration, 5/Lambourne Court/St. Johns Cl, Uxbridge, UB8 2UL Tel: 01895 813911.

Q.

What sort of additional enquiries concerning the risk of a flood at Hillingdon will my property solicitor in Uxbridge look over for a buy to let property we are hoping to buy?

A.

A conveyancing lawyer conducts standard conveyancing and environmental searches that should include Uxbridge area flood risk data. A more detailed flood search, such as the Landmark search, will often be suggested by your Uxbridge property solicitor if in the event that the initial conveyancing searches identify a risk of flooding. On (28-Dec-12) there were no warnings around the River Pinn and Woodridings Stream at the The Lower River Colne and Frays River at Uxbridge, West Drayton, Poyle and Stanwell Moor

Q.

How can we find out if a building is in a designated conservation area?

A.

Conservation areas qualify neighbourhoods designated as being of historical or architectural value. Conservation areas in Uxbridge include The Greenway. You may wish to contact the local council for more information, but your lawyer will investigate this in detail during the conveyancing process.

Q.

Should I get a home surveyor to examine our property purchase?

A.

It is suggested that most Uxbridge buyers book a house survey. There can be many concerns that can negatively affect a property, which are not included in your mortgage lender's valuation, including severe weathering and subsidence.

Q.

Please explain why sale conveyancing requires weeks?

A.

The conveyancing process could be lengthy even where there is no chain. Some causes are out of the conveyancing solicitor's hands. Homeward Legal seek to diminish the burden of these delays by pushing all parties involved.
