Q.

How do I get a cheap solicitor in West Kensington for purchasing a house?

A.

Many property lawyers promote so-called 'the cheapest conveyancing quotes'. Unfortunately additional costs will be included in small print. Excited buyers and sellers, eager to get underway, often ignore this small print when they instruct. Any disbursements ought to be defined on a conveyancing quote Any fees listed in terms and conditions ought to be fair and reasonable and come into force only if your conveyancer is required to perform tasks outside a normal transaction in your interest, which could not be anticipated at the start of the process. Our quotes clearly state the solicitors' fees for a standard conveyancing transaction.

Q.

How can I discover more info about the conservation areas in West Kensington and West Kensington?

A.

Following a campaign, English Heritage have created details on the state of conservation areas as well as the vulnerability to deterioration or improvement.

Conservation area concerns for example trees, removal of existing windows or poorly maintained roads etc. are handled by the local authority (Kensington and Chelsea).

Q.

Should we get a home buyers survey for our property we plan to buy?

A.

It is heavily suggested that most purchasers arrange an inspection. It is a fact that there are a wide range of defects which will impact a property, which include cracks in walls and unsafe chimney circulation. These will not be reported on by a solicitor.

Q.

We are buying on a West Kensington brownfield site. Can the topsoil still be contaminated?

A.

Even where some contamination has occurred in West Kensington, risk levels are usually low. Environment search results will factor contaminants, including metals and others such as groundwater contamination and trichloroethylene.

Q.

Is contaminated land a concern for any residential properties in West Kensington?

A.

A range of contaminants caused by natural and human-influenced issues has the potential to affect West Kensington property, and factors including civil aviation activity in the area will be investigated during the conveyancing process.

Q.

Should we order a chancel search if I am intending to purchase in the parish of South Mymms, near West Kensington?

A.

The conveyancing solicitor may suggest that a chancel search is taken out, irrespective of the parish in which the home being purchased is found. In West Kensington's much older areas, chancel repair has the potential to be charged on owners of a home where church councils have not imposed the same liability on the last owners. It is not safe to rely on the historical behaviour of the parish council alone as a guide.

Q.

What effect will HS2 have in Hendon?

A.

HS2 will affect a number of properties in Hendon. A Local Authority search will reveal the impact on nearby property, but other searches are available which cover a wider radius around the route, and give more detail.

Q.

Is it recommended that we get searches for chancel liability? I am buying on the same road as a priory built in the 1500s in West Kensington.

A.

There are 15000 Church of England and Church of Wales parishes in the UK. Owners of property within some of these may be required to contribute towards the repair of a local church. Several sources are used to determine liability in West Kensington, including county histories. Church of England properties in the local area include St Mary.
