Q.

We need a cheap solicitor quote to buy a house. What should I check?

A.

Numerous conveyancers purport to offer theoretically 'the cheapest conveyancing quotes', but additional fees are often hiding in the solicitor's terms of engagement, left unread by preoccupied buyers Any fees included in terms of engagement should be fair and clearly defined. Third party costs, termed disbursements, to be paid must also be stated on your conveyancing quote. The Homeward Legal quote calculator will confirm the exact legal fees based on the property you are buying.

Q.

Would you recommend taking steps to circumvent paying out for stamp duty?

A.

Homeward Legal firmly advise against any stamp duty mitigation. Such schemes are expensive and HMRC may challenge a scheme up to six years later and the total stamp duty, with interest, will be due.

Which mortgage lender panels in West Ruislip are your solicitors members of?

A.

Q.

Having read about the serious flooding in the UK in April 2012 I am worried that flood risk searches might not be sufficient?

A.

An experienced solicitor in West Ruislip should get flood searches if the environmental searches spots a any kind of risk of flooding in West Ruislip

For extra peace of mind perhaps you could contact a neighbour.

Q.

We are buying in West Ruislip on a new development brownfield land. Could the topsoil be contaminated by industrial waste?

A.

Some metal contamination may have occurred throughout West Ruislip, but an area will only be identified as 'contaminated land' if the risk to human life or the environment is deemed unacceptable. The local authority for West Ruislip will be able to provide more detail on cases of contamination.

Q.

We are on a short deadline and would like get fast conveyancing, what can we do to speed up the conveyancing process?

A.

Instructing a communicative solicitor is crucial to fast conveyancing. There are, in addition, a range of tasks you as the buyer could do, including, ordering a property survey early in the transaction, completing all forms as soon as possible and requesting status updates from the solicitor regularly.

Q.

Are conveyancing searches significant?

A.

These searches are a typical pack of enquiries performed in the interest of the purchaser, such as a coal mining search. Searches are very useful whether buying with a mortgage or not, but consider the legal condition of the property's title.

Q.

What kind of research in respect to the uncertain risk of a flood at Hillingdon will the conveyancing solicitor in West Ruislip give details on for a residential property we are going to purchase?

A.

A qualified conveyancer makes an application for official environmental searches that incorporate West Ruislip flood risk data. A more detailed dedicated flood risk search, such as the Landmark search, may be suggested by a West Ruislip conveyancer if the results of the initial conveyancing searches show that there is a flood risk.
