Q.

There are lots of 'cheap' offers, but how do we find a good one? We are looking for low cost conveyancing.

A.

Various property lawyers claim to offer theoretically cheap conveyancing quotes. Often extra charges will be included in the small print that unknowing property buyers and sellers have not reviewed Any additional fees included in terms of engagement should be fair. A quote must also state any disbursements.We provide quotes, not estimates, and clearly state the fees for a standard conveyancing.

Q.

Does my Abbots Langley conveyancing solicitor carry out any searches on the Hertfordshire Regency terraced house I am intending to buy?

A.

The regular legal protocol is to obtain these searches - Local Authority Search, Drainage and Water Search (CON29DW or personal) and Environment Search and perhaps specific searches such as Commons Registration Search.

Q.

Our mortgage lender will be Bank of Scotland, is there anything we need to consider?

Buyers should be aware that, recently, a number of lenders are now limiting the firms who can act for them, which may result in higher legal costs for buyers. We are able to act for many mortgage lenders to ensure that you will not need to pay legal costs to your lender's solicitor.

Q.

What designated conservation areas are there in Abbots Langley?

A.

There are a range of conservation areas in or near Abbots Langley. You may wish to contact the council for more detail, but your property solicitor will investigate this in detail during the property transaction.

Q.

Do you need to get a chancel search? We are purchasing near church land in Abbots Langley.

A.

As a result of chancel repair liability, the owners of property in Abbots Langley which was once owned by a 'lay impropriators' can be liable for repairs to a medieval church. Liability has the potential to impact the value of a Abbots Langley property, but an indemnity policy may be available to protect the new owners. A conveyancing lawyer will be able to advise as to whether a chancel search is necessary, and recommend suitable insurance. Ecclesiastical properties in the area where chancel liability may apply include St Lawrence.

Q.

Will it be necessary to get a chancel search if I plan to buy in the parish of Meppershall?

A.

The conveyancing solicitor is likely to recommend that a chancel search be ordered. In Abbots Langley's much older areas, chancel repair dues can be collected on current owners of a property where church councils may have not done so in the past.

Q.

How many mortgage lenders in Abbots Langley do you work with?

A.

Most lenders in Abbots Langley are on our solicitors' panels. Lenders and mortgage specialists in Abbots Langley include Burberry Consultants, Caldecote La, Bushey, WD23 4EF, Lynx Financial Services, Lynx House/Ferndown, Northwood, HA6 1PQ, and Berkeley Private Finance Ltd, Moorlands/The Common, Redbourn, St. Albans, AL3 7NJ.

Q.

Would you address making the effort to get out of paying HMRC stamp duty?

A.

Stamp duty reduction scheme is not advised when buying in Abbots Langley, as such schemes are expensive and unreliable. There have been a small number of official schemes, however, such as for first-time buyers. A conveyancing solicitor should confirm whether you are eligible.
