Q.

We need to find a low cost conveyancing estimate. Will we get a quote or and estimate?

A.

Various firms offer 'the cheapest conveyancing quotes', but additional charges are frequently hidden in the terms. This small print is often not read by homeowners in a hurry. Any costs included in the terms needs to be reasonable. They only apply in cases where the solicitor is required to complete unexpected extra work , which could not be anticipated at the start of the process.

Q.

Please advise how to circumvent paying out for stamp duty land tax?

We do not advise purchasers arrange any stamp duty mitigation. These schemes are highly expensive and can be very unlikely to succeed.

Q.

Will it be necessary to get a chancel search if we are intending to buy in the parish of St Botolph without Aldersgate, near West Beckton?

The conveyancing lawyer may suggest a chancel search. Through some church councils have taken the decision to exact chancel repairs on current owners of lay rectorships, a solicitor cannot state with certainty that a parish where chancel repair fees have not been paid previously will continue to be free from liability, so the solicitor will be unable to make any guarantees, and will recommend insurance.

Q.

What do we need to be aware of if when buying a converted flat inside a Greenwich local authority designated conservation area ?

A.

Part of the conveyancing process includes the ordering of searches of the Greenwich authority to determine conservation area status and the appropriate formal approval for changes. .

Q.

What do we need to know about 'fixtures and fittings'?

A.

In the main, fixtures are fixed items, such as shelving to floors, walls and ceilings and fixtures are free-standing items, such as beds. To avoid misunderstandings, a fixtures and fittings form should be agreed, clarifying to both parties what items will stay, and which will be removed.

Q.

West Beckton property solicitors do official searches when instructed by a property buyer,, but which particular ones?

A.

If obtaining a mortgage lender will expect at least the following Local Authority, Drainage Search (Con29DW) and Environment Search,, and possibly less common searches for example Chancel Repair Liability Search.

Which local authority is responsible for West Beckton?

A.

Q.

If I buy a book about handling the legal work when buying a home - Would it be realistic to enact the legal conveyancing process on my own?

A.

If you want to have a try you can conceivably do the legal work without having a specialist West Beckton conveyancer. However, a solicitor in West Beckton juggles a huge number of roles from e.g. chasing lender for comments on issues raised or checking for any restrictive covenants which need a qualified solicitor. More importantly DIY lawyers are taking risks without relevant professional indemnity insurance which all solicitors are obliged to carry.
