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.

Should we order a chancel search if we plan to purchase in the parish of Pitchcott, near West Drayton?

A.

A lawyer might recommend a chancel search, whichever parish in which the residence being purchased is located. In West Drayton's much older areas, chancel repair may be apportioned on the current owners of a residence where Parochial Church Councils may have spared previous owners or tenants, so the solicitor will be unable to make any guarantees, and will recommend insurance.

Q.

Q.

What do I need to be aware of when buying a terraced house in a Hillingdon council designated conservation area ?

A.

An integral part of conveyancing for purchasers includes the application for searches of the Hillingdon authority to verify conservation area status and the existence of consent for any developments. .

Q.

We have a found a house to buy. How do we arrange a fast completion?

A.

As is often argued, moving faster is essential to instruct a proactive and experienced conveyancing solicitor. Additionally, there are a range of things you as the purchaser could do to get moving sooner. These include:

  • answering any queries raised by your conveyancing solicitor as soon as possible
  • ordering a property survey early in the transaction
  • requesting regular updates from your conveyancing solicitor and keep the pressure on

Q.

Does your property lawyer in West Drayton carry out any property conveyancing searches on the London forties terraced house I am intending to purchase?

A.

If you are applying for a mortgage the mortgage lender mandates the following for West Drayton: Local Authority Search, Drainage and Water Search (CON29DW or personal) and Environment Search, and occasionally specific local searches, like a Utilities Search.

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.

How can I protect the purchase from being gazumped?

A.

Gazumping occurs when a seller acknowledges the first buyer's offer and then rejects it, selecting instead a higher offer. Although being gazumped is less common in a declining market, there will always be a risk. Consider instructing a conveyancing solicitor early, and even before acceptance of an offer to reduce the chance of your offer being gazumped.
