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


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.

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


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.


Does your firm advise on the legal conveyancing of auction properties in West Drayton?

We are able to work with auction buyers and sellers. Usually difficult to value buildings e. g. where the owner needs a quick sale, are purchased in property auctions and these will want further inquiries. Lawyers therefore advocate buyers to choose an experienced solicitor prior to the auction day for a thorough investigation of the sellers legal pack. Subsequently, immediately after the auction day itself a prepared lawyer is fully prepared to carry out the legal process within 28 days, a requirement of standard auction conditions.


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


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


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


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

What exploration in respect to the uncertain risk of local flooding to properties in Hillingdon will my solicitor in West Drayton advise on?


A key step in the conveyancing protocol involves the solicitor applying for conveyancing and environmental searches that give you certain details regarding risk of flooding in West Drayton. A more detailed flood search (most likely a Landmark Database search) might be proposed by a West Drayton conveyancing solicitor if the results of the initial searches reveal a flood risk. At the time of writing (28-Dec-12) there were no warnings around the Lower River Colne and Frays River at the River Idle and tributaries from West Drayton to the confluence with the River Trent
