"I chose Bishopsgate for the conveyancing for purchase of a shared freehold flat on the basis of the competitive price and the good reviews. Jodie was the conveyancer and provided excellent service which lived up to the reviews. Jodie responding to all my emails within a few hours, once she even answered a question on a Sunday afternoon. The whole process went very smoothly apart from a slight delay on exchange day due to one of the other solicitors in the chain not responding in time. Overall I can definitely recommend Bishopsgate for conveyancing."

Eden Conveyancing are proud to help with the legal side of selling and buying a house.
"Eden have completely changed my perspective on what a conveyancing company can provide.Having bought through more traditional conveyancers before I was ready for a lot of waiting, pestering, being on hold, messages not being passed on and general stress levels being quite high.But from our initial application, to our first meeting (which they were able to book in the next day at our request), through to completion way ahead of when we expected, we were treated to excellent customer service from Sam and the Eden experience.The portal is great and allows you to simply see everything that needs to happen and when it will happen, as well as what funds are moving around to what parties at what time really quickly.Sam was so friendly, knowledgeable and responsive. I would class myself as quite an annoying customer - always wanting to know that we're as moved along down the line as we can be - and this was met with assurances and professionalism at all times.Oh and they were great value too! But I would easily rank them the best conveyors I have ever used so would absolutely pay the premium if they came out at most expensive when comparing.Thanks Sam and the team! "

A key part of the conveyancing process and the role of your conveyancer is arranging searches on your home and the surrounding area. These include a Local Authority search, Environmental search and Water and Drainage search. The results of these searches can highlight environmental or legal issues which could influence the sale or future ownership. This includes the risk of flooding, subsidence, ground stability and radon gas levels.
Geobear’s UK Subsidence Map shows an increased level of subsidence the closer to central London you are. Large cities are very often more at risk of subsidence due to the influx of large and heavy buildings across a small area. Although not as severe in Hackney, levels are higher here than in the majority of the areas outside of the city.
There is a reportedly high risk of surface water flooding in Hackney, which happens during increased rainfall. This can be difficult to predict and is caused when heavy rain is unable to drain away quickly and effectively.
It is vital that you read your search reports thoroughly and talk to your conveyancer if you have any concerns.
