Q.

Noted West Smithfield interest

A.

Brixton London Windmill, Holborn Lincolns Inn Great Hall Historic Building and Temple Middle Temple Hall Historic Building are around West Smithfield.

The nearest hospital is St Bartholomews London.

Q.

How do I get the best rates for conveyancing for a £667,000 home?

A.

Many buyers seeking discount conveyancing are caught out by the lure of very low conveyancing rates, and many conveyancers offer so-called 'the cheapest conveyancing quotes', however additional costs are frequently hidden in the solicitor's terms. Third party costs, termed disbursements, to be paid ought to be defined on the conveyancing quote. Our quotes clearly state the solicitors' fees for a standard conveyancing transaction.

Q.

What factors can contaminate land in West Smithfield, and are they comprehensively investigated?

A.

Property in West Smithfield could be contaminated by numerous natural and human-influenced issues. Contaminants including proximity to waste sites will be reported on in environmental search results.

Q.

What does the West Smithfield property lawyer recommend if the flat is inside a City of London conservation area and turns out to have ugly windows fitted to it?

A.

The local authority enquiries carried out by the solicitor during the legal process should confirm whether the property is within a conservation area and evidence of authorisation for additions to the property will be requested.

Q.

Will we need a house survey?

A.

Homeward Legal heavily advise that home buyers book a house survey if you are planning to buy in West Smithfield. Many problems can affect a property. These include cavity wall tie failure or poor drainage. These will not be reported on by a solicitor.

Q.

How long does conveyancing to transact a house require, in your opinion? We need to move quickly.

A.

On average, the number of weeks needed to sell or purchase a home is not wholly predictable, based on a range of aspects. 8 to 12 weeks is the average for many firms, whereas Homeward Legal aim to complete the process within six weeks.

Q.

In what ways does the property lawyer in West Smithfield report back on the risk of floods at West Smithfield on a buy to let property we are going to purchase?

A.

A property lawyer conducts standard protocol environmental searches that should include West Smithfield flood risk data. A significantly more in-depth set of searches, such as the Landmark search, may be recommended by the West Smithfield solicitor if the results of the initial conveyancing searches suggest any risk of flooding.

Q.

We are buying a church rectory in Ealing. Will a chancel search be needed?

A.

Regardless of the West Smithfield parish in which you are purchasing, the West Smithfield conveyancing solicitor might recommend that a chancel search is taken out. In older areas of West Smithfield, chancel repair dues can be collected on the owners of a property where Parochial Church Councils (PCCs) may have not done so in the past, so the solicitor will be unable to make any guarantees, and will recommend insurance.

Q.

For fast legal work on the purchase of a £784,000 house, how could we speed up our move?

A.

Most importantly, a fast conveyancing transaction is crucial to instruct a proactive and experienced lawyer. There are numerous tasks you could do to speed up the legal work. These include:

  • calling or emailing the lawyer, and chase them if you suspect any delays
  • quickly answering your lawyer's questions (by email if possible)
  • confirming your mortgage offer
