Q.

How do I get the cheapest conveyancing solicitors in Blackfriars?

A.

Many solicitors offer 'the cheapest conveyancing quotes', but extra charges will be included in the small print. The conveyancing quote should, in addition, define any disbursements.Homeward Legal quotes are not estimates, and offer a clear statement of your legal fees for a standard conveyancing transaction.

Q.

Is an environmental search a fee or disbursement?

A.

Each fee and disbursement ought to be identified on a conveyancing quote. This charge is a disbursement not a fee, and is passed on at cost.

Q.

Apparently, antimony soil contamination may be an issue in Blackfriars. Can you advise?

A.

Blackfriars agriculture or industry can cause soil contamination. Land may also be contaminated by other sources, including insecticides and groundwater contamination.

Q.

The owner has installed roof antenna on the flat in Blackfriars which we think might possibly break local conservation area rules

A.

Your solicitor is required to find out whether the property is within a designated conservation area and whether any modifications have the appropriate permissions from the local planning authority.

Q.

What are fixtures and fittings?

A.

House purchasers will often be frustrated with the lack of formality over what fixtures and fittings should be included in a purchase. Conveyancing solicitors recommend a formal fixtures and fittings form to avoid later disagreements, stating what is included with the sale.

Q.

Do we need a chancel search if we are buying in the parish of Finchley?

A.

A property lawyer may suggest a chancel search. Chancel repair has the potential to be imposed on current owners of a home where Parochial Church Councils (PCCs) have not imposed the same liability on the last owners. For property in the parish of Finchley, it is not safe to rely on the historical behaviour of the parish council alone as a guide.

Q.

When we are purchasing a Blackfriars house close to parish land, is it recommended that we get a chancel search?

A.

There are fifteen thousand parishes across the UK. Owners of property within some of these may be required to subsidise the repair of a local church. A number of sources are used to identify liability, including maps of Blackfriars's parish boundaries. Blackfriars Church of England properties where chancel liability may apply include St Andrew-by-the-Wardrobe.

Q.

Do we need a RICS-qualified surveyor to look into the house we are interested in buying?

A.

It is advised that you arrange a building survey when you plan to buy in Blackfriars. There are many defects that have a negative impact on a property, which will not be addressed during a property valuation, which include settlement or ground movement.
