I am looking for a cheap solicitor quote to buy a property. What is included?


Many home owners seeking discount conveyancing are caught out by the lure of very low conveyancing rates. Many conveyancers promote 'the cheapest conveyancing quotes', but additional costs are frequently hidden in the terms. Chargeswhich are listed in the terms should be fair and only apply to matters if your conveyancer must perform additional tasks on your behalf, which could not be anticipated at the start of the process. We offer quotes, not estimates, and clearly state all legal fees you pay for a standard conveyancing transaction.


I have found a number of online manuals giving details on doing the legal work yourself. Do I therefore need to spend money on a conveyancing solicitor in Kingsbury for my home move?


It is certainly possible for you to complete the conveyancing yourself.

In reality however, a Kingsbury lawyer takes care of a significant number of exercises e.g. approving enquiries on searches or apportioning service charges many of which really need experience. Nonetheless solicitors need to take out indemnity cover that protects you from any professional failures on the part of the solicitor.


Can I check if a property is in one of Kingsbury's designated conservation areas?


Areas deemed to be of special architectural or historic interest, such as 18th century suburbs, will be defined as conservation areas. These restrictions adds to upkeep costs, but the benefits include a more attractive neighbourhood. Your conveyancing solicitor will be able to provide more details.


How much is the council tax on a Sixties detached property in Kingsbury?


Ordinarily, the title report should cover the relevant Brent council tax band. Council tax charges for residents of Kingsbury are listed on the Brent council website. On (17 June 2012) rates are as follows:

  • Band A - £910.00
  • Band B - £1,062.00
  • Band C - £1,214.00
  • Band D - £1,366.00
  • Band E - £1,669.00
  • Band F - £1,973.00
  • Band G - £2,276.00
  • Band H - £2,731.00


When we are buying a home on the same road as parsonage grounds in Kingsbury, is it recommended that we get a chancel search?


In Kingsbury, some owners can be required to contribute towards repairs to a medieval church. Parochial Church Councils in Kingsbury must register their interest over property by October 2013, simplifying the chancel search process. The solicitor acting on your behalf will confirm that a chancel search is appropriate. Church lands in this area include Holy Innocents, S.Andrew and SS Peter & Paul.


Could our conveyancing fees have any extra fees?


We will never charge any hidden fees whatsoever. Your quote for conveyancing in Kingsbury is an accurate price.


How do we work out stamp duty?


The Stamp Duty payable will rely on a limited set of factors, including the value of the house, and whether it is in a 'disadvantaged area'. On a £213000 home, stamp duty will be £2130.*

Following recent news about the fact that last year was second wettest year since 1920 I am apprehensive that environmental searches may not be thorough enough?


A good Kingsbury conveyancing solicitor will consider carry out environmental searches if the environmental searches flag up a significant risk Kingsbury flood risk area data
