Q.

What are the best conveyancing rates for a £752,000 house?

A.

Several conveyancers promote theoretically 'the cheapest conveyancing quotes', but extra costs will be included in small print. Excited homeowners, eager to get underway, often ignore this small print when they instruct. Additional charges which are listed in terms of engagement should be clearly defined and be applicable solely where the lawyer must complete unanticipated additional work on your behalf, which could not be anticipated at the start of the process. Your quote should, in addition, define any disbursements.

Q.

How is contaminated land in West Ealing investigated when purchasing a house?

A.

Property in West Ealing may have been contaminated by a range of naturally-occurring factors, and an environmental search should reveal if a particular property may be impacted by contaminants including waste treatment sites in the area.

Q.

Will I need a house surveyor to check for defects affecting the home purchase?

A.

Homeward Legal advise that West Ealing buyers book an inspection. Numerous defects can negatively affect a property. These include insect infestation. Such issues will not be considered during the conveyancing work itself.

Q.

What amount of time may the legal work to buy residential property require, in your opinion? We are buying in West Ealing.

A.

For the majority of home movers, the length of time required to transact a home varies, according to numerous issues which may affect the property. We ensure the matter is handled quickly, and to the highest standard of service.

Q.

We are using a Ealing lender, and need to know which West Ealing lenders your conveyancing solicitors work with. Whose panels are your solicitors members of?

A.

Most lenders in West Ealing are on our solicitors' panels. West Ealing lenders and mortgage specialists include Chelsea Building Society, 41 High St, London, W5 5DB, Davies Steve, Suite 32 Central Chambers/The Broadway, London, W5 2NR, and Naked Finance, Suite 31 Central Chambers/The Broadway, London, W5 2NR. Your solicitor should be able to provide more information.

Q.

My husband and I are purchasing a property in West Ealing. How do I check that the property is in a conservation area?

A.

The local areas in or near West Ealing will include several areas of historical or architectural value registered as conservation areas. A solicitor will address the consequences of purchasing property in a conservation area and provide more details.

Q.

We are buying on a brownfield site. Is the top-soil likely to remain contaminated?

A.

Though the dangers are usually minor, contaminated land areas are labelled as such if the danger to the environment is judged to be too great. Land may also be contaminated by other sources, including fertilisers and groundwater contaminants like industrial chemicals.

Q.

We are purchasing a property with Co-operative Bank, what will I need to check?

A.

In some cases, lenders have opted to reduce the size of their 'solicitor panel'. For buyers, this can result in significantly increased legal costs. Homeward Legal, however, are able to act for most lenders in the UK so that you will not be required to pay any additional legal fees to your lender's solicitor.
