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.

What can affect land in West Drayton, and should they be a problem?

A.

Property in West Drayton may have been contaminated by numerous naturally-occurring factors. Contaminants like overhead transmission lines and shallow mining will be reported on in environmental search results.

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.

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.

Which local authority is responsible for West Drayton?

A.

West Drayton is located in London Borough of Hillingdon Council, Civic Centre, High Street, Uxbridge, Middlesex, UB8 1UW Tel: 01895 250111

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 much can the fees for my searches come to?

A.

With a Homeward Legal conveyancing solicitor, West Drayton clients are charged at most £249 for a standard bundle of searches. They are charged at cost.

Q.

How can we uncover additional information about the West Drayton and West Drayton conservation areas?

A.

Following a campaign, English Heritage keep details about the state of conservation areas in West Drayton and throughout England in addition to the risk of standards slipping.

Local West Drayton conservation area matters for instance what can be developed, non sympathetic doors or rundown streets are managed by the local authority (Hillingdon).
