Q.

Are additional fees applied? I am looking for fixed rate West Drayton conveyancing.

A.

The confusion over this point catches out many buyers, and can leave them paying far more in fees than they budgeted, and many law firms promote 'the cheapest conveyancing', but additional costs are frequently hidden in the solicitor's terms of engagement. These terms are often ignored by excited buyers, eager to get underway. Extra costs listed in the solicitor's terms needs to be reasonable and only be applied if the conveyancer must perform additional tasks for you, which could not be anticipated at the start of the process.

Q.

Do you need to get searches for chancel liability? We are purchasing a apartment in West Drayton.

A.

Where land in West Drayton was once owned by a lay-rector, new owners of that property may be obliged to cover the cost of maintenance of an old church building. Insurance may be available to protect a buyer should a West Drayton Parochial Church Council enforce liability. Church properties in this area where a chancel search may be necessary include St Martin and St Paul.

Q.

Do property searches affect a decision to buy?

A.

Conveyancing searches are enquiries raised by the purchaser's conveyancing solicitor through several authorities, which may include a tin mining search. Searches are very useful whether buying with a mortgage or not, but will only cover legal considerations.

Q.

Is simultaneous exchange and completion a disbursement or fee?

A.

It may not be obvious if a cost is a disbursement or fee. This cost is a fee not a disbursement. It should be included in a quote.

Q.

The internet is full of collections of on and offline articles going into great depth on do it yourself conveyancing. Do I therefore need a West Drayton property solicitor ?

A.

There is absolutely no argument why a home buyer should not conceivably engage in the legal and technical work without a qualified property solicitor in West Drayton. However, a property solicitor is familiar with a huge array of actions such as raising additional enquiries and apportioning service charges some of which really need the relevant training. Fundamentally do it yourself conveyancers will not be covered by applicable insurance which every legal firms must have.

Q.

It seems that zinc soil contamination may be an issue in West Drayton. Please advise.

A.

Effort is made on a national level to find and clean up soil contamination. Other sources of contaminated land include food-processing waste.

Q.

I am buying soon and have a conveyancing quote from you. Will there be any extra fees?

A.

No. Homeward Legal do not charge any hidden extra charges for any reason.

Q.

We are purchasing a £870000 West Drayton home, what will be assessed for SDLT?

A.

The Stamp Duty due will depend on the valuation. On a £870000 residential property, stamp duty will be £34800.*
