I am looking for a fixed rate conveyancing quote. What is included?


The lack of clarity surrounding this point affects many homeowners who opted for a very cheap quote, only to be stung later in the conveyancing process. Many conveyancers offer theoretically 'the cheapest conveyancing quotes'. However additional fees will be included in small print. Extra costs should be fair. The online quote calculator can generate an accurate statement of the legal fees for the property you plan to buy.


I am purchasing a home. Should we have searches ordered?


These searches are common pack of queries carried out for the buyer. These searches provide much needed information, however they cover solely the legal aspects of the purchase.


Would arranging a Homebuyer Report be necessary when buying a property, irrespective of its condition, in Wood Green?


It is strongly advised that all buyers in Wood Green book a surveyor to perform a survey when purchasing in Wood Green. Many defects have a negative impact on a property, including corrosion of pipework. Such issues will not be considered during the conveyancing work itself.


I plan to purchase a converted chapel in Whitechapel. Is a chancel search specified?

The property solicitor is likely to recommend a chancel search, regardless of the parish where the residence being bought is found. In older areas of Wood Green, chancel repair may be apportioned on owners of a residence where Parochial Church Councils may have spared previous owners or tenants.


Would you advise that we get a chancel search if you are buying a Wood Green flat near a 12th Century church?


There are over 15,000 ecclesiastical parishes in England and Wales. Property owners within some of these may be required to fund the repair of a local church. Owners who have bought property prior to 2003 may be totally unaware that a liability exists if a chancel search was not carried out. Your conveyancing lawyer will suggest an appropriate indemnity policy to address chancel liability. Church properties in the local area include St Mark Noel Park, St Michael, and Wednesbury St.Paul's.


Does my Wood Green property lawyer order any searches on the London Regency detached house I am intending to buy?


If you are applying for a mortgage the lender mandates at least specific searches, including the following Local Authority (personal or official), Drainage Search and Environmental, and perhaps less common searches for example HS37.


What kind of investigation into the uncertain risk of flooding to properties in Haringey will my Wood Green property solicitor advise on for a Sixties house I am wanting to purchase?


The conveyancing lawyer will apply for standard property environmental searches, which include Wood Green flood risk information. At the time of writing (07/01/13) publication on the Environment Agency don’t indicate any active flood warnings in the Wood Green area.


Does your company advise on auction conveyancing in Wood Green?


Yes - Homeward Legal is very knowledgeable with property auction conveyancing. Typically unusual houses for example structurally defective property are purchased in property auctions which want additional exploration before buying. Conveyancers therefore strongly recommend that buyers formally instruct an auction experienced solicitor well before the property auction for a detailed report of the documents.
