What are the best conveyancing rates for a £162k property?


Numerous property lawyers advertise 'the cheapest conveyancing quotes'. Unfortunately additional charges can pad the final bill. Your conveyancing quote ought to list the disbursements to be paid.


How can we find out whether a building is in a conservation area?


Conservation areas qualify streets and neighbourhoods of historical or architectural value. You may wish to contact the local council if you have specific questions, but your conveyancing solicitor will address this during the conveyancing process.


Environmental searches are all well and good but in light of recent flooding, such as the fact that 2012 was second wettest year since records began, are they comfort enough to find out sufficient information about the Barnet future flood risk?

Property environmental searches applied for by the conveyancer in Barnet will also include the more rigorous search (Landmark) if required.

If you are anxious you can always call a local resident or regional North London flood damage expert, e.g. David Kirby Builders, 94 Northumberland Road, New Barnet, Barnet, EN5 1EE Tel: 020 84496036.


Could the charges for our conveyancing incorporate any extra fees?


No. Homeward Legal never charge any hidden charges. Our quotes offer an single, accurate fee the legal costs for your move.


What makes purchase conveyancing to take months to complete?


The legal work needed to sell or purchase a property could suffer setbacks for many reasons. The delays are beyond the solicitor's power, Homeward Legal, however, seek to reduce their burden where feasible by driving the sale or purchase forward. Reasons for delay can include problems with arranging a mortgage.


If I plan to buy in the parish of Greenford, are we advised to get a chancel search?


Your conveyancing solicitor could advise a chancel search, regardless of the parish in which the home being purchased is located. Through some Parochial Church Councils (PCCs) have exercised their right to impose chancel repairs on current owners of land subject to chancel liability, it is not possible to be certain that a parish where repair costs have not been paid before, that this will not continue to be so.


HSBC Bank will be our mortgage lender, what do I need to know?


Until recently, it was usually straightforward for solicitors to act for both a buyer and their lender. Some lenders have opted to reduce the size of their 'solicitor panel'. For property purchasers, this can result in significantly greater legal costs. Homeward Legal, however, can act for most mortgage lenders to keep legal costs to a minimum.


The current owner has unfortunately added unfitting satellite dishes to the flat in Barnet which I think might break nearby conservation area guidelines


Your instructed conveyancing solicitor will carry out searches confirm whether the property is affected by a conservation area, and if so, whether any alterations have requisite permissions from the local council.
