Q.

I need to find a lawyer that offers cheap conveyancing in Walthamstow. What are the risks?

A.

Misleading conveyancing quotes catch out many home owners, leaving them to pay sometimes £100s more than planned, and many conveyancers advertise supposedly cheap conveyancing, but extra charges are frequently hidden in the solicitor's terms of engagement. We offer quotes, not estimates, and clearly state all legal fees you pay for a standard conveyancing transaction.

I have read about the serious flooding in the UK in April 2012, we are questioning if flood searches might not be thorough enough?

A.

A thorough conveyancer in Walthamstow will suggest that you include flood searches if the first searches establishes a Walthamstow flooding risk.

For more peace of mind why not speak to a next door neighbour.

Q.

Do we need a chancel search if we are intending to buy in the parish of St Marylebone St Mary, near Walthamstow?

A.

The conveyancing solicitor is likely to recommend a chancel search. In Walthamstow's much older areas, chancel repair dues can be collected on current owners of a house where Parochial Church Councils have previously chosen not to do so. In the event that chancel liability may apply, your solicitor might recommend insurance rather than pulling out of the purchase.

Q.

Should I use a lawyer frequently used by the estate agent in Maidenbower?

A.

Many agents in Maidenbower will have a referral arrangement with solicitors where they refer clients to them. However, if the agent is paid a fee by the solicitor, some agents choose the solicitor willing to pay the highest referral fee, not the most appropriate choice.

If purchasing and applying for a mortgage lender insist that a solicitor to get at least these searches - Local Authority (personal or official), Drainage Search (Con29DW) and Environment Search, and possibly unique particular for instance Chancel Repair Liability Search.

Q.

Capital Home Loans is going to be our lender - what do I need to be aware of?

A.

When organising a mortgage, a mortgage provider will need legal work to be undertaken in relation to the mortgage. In some cases, lenders have limited the firms who can act for them. For buyers, this can result in significantly greater legal costs. Homeward Legal are able to act on behalf of the majority of UK mortgage lenders to ensure that you will not need to pay your lender's conveyancing fees.
