We are looking for low cost conveyancing, we are on a tight budget.


This topic affects many property buyers and sellers who opted for a very cheap quote, only to be stung later in the conveyancing process. Many law firms promote theoretically 'the cheapest conveyancing quotes', but extra fees may be added into the terms and conditions. Your East Barnet conveyancing quote should list costs to be paid to third parties, including search providers, (disbursements). Extra fees listed in terms and conditions should be fair and come into force only if the solicitor must complete additional work , which could not be anticipated at the start of the process.


I am purchasing a £1042000 East Barnet property. How is stamp duty calculated?


Stamp Duty will depend on the house or flat's value. For a house sold for £1042000, the rate will be £52100.


Do I need to get a home surveyor to look into the house we are interested in buying?


Homeward Legal recommend that home buyers order a house survey. It is a fact that there are a range of concerns that can negatively affect a property, which a conveyancing solicitor will not report on, such as roof spread and poor drainage.


Doing your own conveyancing without a conveyancing solicitor in East Barnet appears to be becoming possible as a buyer of a home. However, would it actually be reasonable ?


In theory there are no reasons at all why a home mover cant adopt a DIY approach and complete the your own conveyancing without assistance. The truth is however that a conveyancing solicitor in East Barnet carries out a large array of activities ranging from chasing replies to requisitions or verifying identities of transacting parties which need a qualified solicitor.


Which of the lender panels in East Barnet are you on?


The Homeward Legal partnership have worked in conjunction with most lenders. A number of mortgage specialists operate in East Barnet, like Murray & Co (Commercial Finance) Ltd, 1339 High Rd, London, N20 9HR, Aslan Financial Services, 25 Harlech Rd, London, N14 7BY, and Lyndhurst Financial Management Ltd, 57 Church Hill Rd, East Barnet, Barnet, EN4 8SY.


My mortgage lender will be Prudential Banking - what do we need to be aware of?


Traditionally, it was usually straightforward for solicitors to act for both a buyer and their lender. Some lenders have limited the firms who can act for them. This can mean increased conveyancing costs for house purchasers. We, however, can act for all major lenders to keep legal costs to a minimum.


Does a property lawyer in East Barnet conduct any conveyancing searches on the London Fifties terraced home I am purchasing


If purchasing and applying for a mortgage the mortgage lender expects at least the following Local Authority (council), Drainage Search and Environmental, and perhaps less common searches such as Cheshire Brine Search.


If I am intending to purchase near East Barnet, in the parish of Covent Garden St Paul, do we need a chancel search?


The conveyancing solicitor might recommend a chancel search, irrespective of the parish where the property being bought is found. In older areas of East Barnet, chancel repair has the potential to be imposed on the owners of a property where Parochial Church Councils (PCCs) may have not done so in the past. Even if liability is unlikely, indemnity insurance is a sensible precaution.
