Q.

We need a cheap solicitor quote for purchasing a house. Will we get a quote or and estimate?

A.

Various firms promote theoretically cheap conveyancing. Unfortunately additional costs may inflate the final invoice. A quote should state any disbursements. Any costs included in your solicitor's terms needs to be clearly defined and only come into force where your conveyancer must complete work beyond standard conveyancing in your interest, which could not be anticipated at the start of the process.

Q.

If I plan to buy in the parish of St Pancras, should we get a chancel search?

A.

A conveyancing solicitor could recommend a chancel search, whichever parish in which the house being purchased is found. Chancel repair may be apportioned on the owners of a house where Parochial Church Councils (PCCs) may have not done so in the past. In the event that chancel liability may apply, your solicitor might recommend insurance rather than pulling out of the purchase.

Q.

When my partner and I are buying in Blackfen, is it necessary that we get a search for chancel liability?

A.

Potentially amounting to over £100,000 in repair cost obligations, chancel liability should be considered by buyers of Blackfen property likely to be affected. Terms used in a property's name, like 'priory', may indicate chancel liability.

Q.

In respect of the fact that last year was second wettest year since on record we are thinking that conveyancing and environmental searches may not be sufficient?

A.

A qualified solicitor in Blackfen will consider get additional flood risk searches if the standard searches spots a significant risk Blackfen flood risk.

For more area background you could also try to get in touch with a next door neighbour.

Q.

Why does conveyancing take months to complete?

A.

The conveyancing process will sometimes be delayed. We seek to diminish their effect whenever we can do so by using fast search providers. There are numerous reasons for delay, such as issues elsewhere in a chain.

Q.

Which local authority looks after Blackfen?

A.

Blackfen is located in London Borough of Bexley Council, Civic Offices, Broadway, Bexleyheath, Kent, DA6 7LB, phone: 020 8303 7781

Q.

Is contaminated land in Blackfen an issue?

A.

A range of contaminants may affect Blackfen property, and an environmental search should clarify to what extent a home is impacted by contaminants like air pollution.

Q.

Do we need to instruct the solicitor referred by my agent?

A.

It is not uncommon for agents in Northolt to endorse one or more conveyancing firms. However, if the agent is paid a fee by the solicitor, there is a risk that an agent may choose whichever firm pays the most per referral, not the law firm with the best reputation.
