How do I find fixed rate conveyancing?


Both high-street and online conveyancers promote so-called 'the cheapest conveyancing quotes', however extra costs are frequently hidden in the terms of engagement, left unread by preoccupied buyers and sellers Additional fees found in the small print needs to be reasonable and be applied only where the conveyancer must complete additional work in your interest, which could not be anticipated at the start of the process. Your Queensbury conveyancing quote should list any disbursements to be paid.


The owner has unfortunately installed inappropriate PVC windows to the house which we think might break the Queensbury conservation area guidelines.


Brent local authority search (LLC1 - Requisition for search and Official Certificate of Search) conducted by your solicitor during the conveyancing process should determine if the property is within a designated conservation area and evidence of authorisation for changes to the property will be asked for.Should no necessary permissions be supplied the solicitor will advise you of all options which can include taking out an indemnity policy or seeking retrospective approval.


I am buying in Queensbury. How can we verify if the house is in a conservation area?


With nine thousand conservation areas across the country, the streets and neighbourhoods near or within Queensbury include a number of areas of architectural or historic interest designated as protected. Queensbury itself is named as a conservation area. Living in a conservation area can mean confidence that property will retain its value, but the restrictions may impose liability on a buyer for unauthorised alterations made by previous owners. A conveyancing solicitor will discuss the relevant responsibilities.


The estate agent has suggested the firm of solicitors which they often use. Should we instruct this firm?


Both agents and mortgage brokers will often suggest a law firm to handle your conveyancing. These referrals should be compared to other online or local firms, as it may be the case that the agent recommends the conveyancer who pays out the highest referral fee, not the most suitable for you.


Does your conveyancing solicitor in Queensbury conduct any searches on the London Victorian mid terrace building I am intending to purchase?


When getting a mortgage, your lender requires you to a solicitor to get at least a specified set of searches, including these searches - Local Authority Search, Drainage and Water Search (CON29DW or personal) and Environmental as well as any specific searches, which might include Index Map Search.


It seems that arsenic (As) soil contamination may be an issue in Queensbury. Please advise.


With this region's industrial history in parts of Queensbury, soil contamination is impossible to completely avoid. Metal contamination of soil in Queensbury is more likely to occur near former industrial sites. Data on other contaminants, like groundwater contaminants like phenols and perchlorate, will also be included in an environmental search.


At what stage should we set up a removals people?


It is prudent to is for home movers to hold off agreeing a removal company until after all parties have confirmed your moving date which occurs once exchange of contracts.

When in the conveyancing process is it wise to arrange a conveyancing solicitor to handle our transaction?


Simply, the faster you instruct the better. Prompt instruction of a firm for a sale can mean that paperwork can be prepared, even before a buyer is found, whereas if you are buying you can shave days off the process by having the details of your instructed solicitor ready when you make an offer.
