The amount of time taken to buy or sell a house may vary. This is affected by a broad set of issues which may affect the property which can include if the property being bought or sold is leasehold. With Homeward Legal's Tufnell Park property experts, your move is undertaken as quickly as possible.


As a consequence of the Met Office warning of more intense rainfall in the future I am worried that property conveyancing searches might not be sufficient?

For added area background you could also try to speak to a future neighbour.

Which issues assist with arranging a fast exchange and completion?


Essential to a fast transaction is to employing a proactive conveyancing solicitor. There are numerous things you, as the buyer, could do, such as, responding to your conveyancing solicitor by phone, fax or email wherever possible, pushing the conveyancing solicitor to begin enquiries as soon as possible and if you intend to get a house survey, doing so as early as you can.


I am buying in Tufnell Park, and have had a conveyancing quote from you. Might there be any additional fees?


No. Homeward Legal's solicitors will not charge any extra, hidden fees. Some solicitor do not give accurate quotes, only estimates, which could be totally different to your final invoice.


DIY conveyancing without a property solicitor in Tufnell Park appears to be becoming possible as a buyer and seller of a flat , but would it be an unrealistic idea ?


There are no reasons why you should not take care of the bulk of the legal process without the help of a professional Tufnell Park property solicitor.

The truth is however that a lawyer handles a huge number of exercises including stock transfer forms and apportioning ground rents most of which need a qualified solicitor. Even more importantly do it yourself conveyancers will not have acceptable insurance which every solicitors firm must take out.


Does administer the conveyancing of auction properties in Tufnell Park?


We are accustomed to working with residential property auction procedures. Usually hard to value auction lots e. g. development land, are bought in auctions which tend to demand extra exploration prior to exchange. We therefore advise that buyers at auction appoint their property lawyer well before the actual auction to allow time for a detailed review of the sellers documents.

Thereafter, following the auction day itself a lawyer needs to be ready for briskly get through the conveyancing process in under 28 days, a normal requirement of auction conditions.
