How do I get a cheap solicitor quote for purchasing a auction property?


The lack of clarity surrounding this issue catches out many buyers, and can leave them paying far more in fees than they budgeted, and many solicitors promote so-called cheap conveyancing, but additional fees may inflate the solicitor's invoice. Applicable disbursements ought to be defined on a conveyancing quote


What do we need to know if we acquire a detached house in a Enfield council designated conservation area ?


Part of conveyancing for purchasers includes the application for searches of the Enfield authority to identify conservation area status and the required formal approval for developments. .

If no appropriate permissions be in evidence the solicitor will give you professional advice on the best alternative e.g. getting an indemnity insurance or obtaining retrospective approval from the planning authority.


My mortgage lender is Bradford and Bingley - what do I need to consider?


In some cases, lenders have opted to reduce the size of their 'solicitor panel', which may result in higher conveyancing costs for property purchasers. We, however, can act on behalf of most mortgage lenders.


Is there anything we can do to get out of paying out for stamp duty?


Stamp duty mitigation should not be considered. Such schemes are often uneconomical and HMRC may challenge a scheme up to six years later and the total stamp duty tax may be payable, along with interest and penalties.


When my partner and I are buying a Chipping Barnet property on the same street as a priory, do I need a search for chancel liability?


The Law Lords decision in a landmark case in 2003 reaffirmed that 'lay rectors' of property must subsidise church repairs. A chancel search confirms that such a liability exists. Liability is more common in some parts of the country. The solicitor carrying out the legal work for your move will confirm that a chancel search is appropriate. Church of England properties in Chipping Barnet include St John the Baptist, Barnet Church.


How many weeks should it take for the conveyancer to conclude the conveyancing work for a semi detached sixties building?


Getting contracts exchanged can take anywhere from 1 month to 12 weeks, which can be hampered by a number of things for example the speed of the vendor's solicitor, or the speed of your lender.

Homeward Legal's lawyers are very proactive you moving home as promptly as we possibly can.


My local agent has referred the property solicitor that they have used before. Will it be easier to instruct this solicitor?


Estate agent referrals are a not uncommon route for buyers to find a solicitor, however, these referrals must be carefully considered, as there is a risk that an agent may choose whichever firm pays the most per referral, not the most appropriate choice.


As a consequence of the fact that last year was second wettest year since records began we are anxious that environmental searches may not be sufficient?


The Chipping Barnet property lawyer will suggest that you carry out food risk searches if the standard searches flag up any kind of local Chipping Barnet flood risk.

For extra assurance it may be prudent to contact a next door neighbour.
