Q.

How do I find the cheapest conveyancing solicitors?

A.

Various solicitors claim to offer cheap conveyancing quotes, however extra fees are frequently hidden in the terms of engagement. Busy, stressed buyers and sellers ignore these terms at their peril. Additional fees should be fair and clearly defined. Our quotes clearly state the solicitors' fees for a standard conveyancing transaction.

Q.

Do I need to get a chancel search? We are purchasing a Burnt Oak flat on the same road as church grounds.

A.

Repair costs resulting from chancel liability can total hundreds of thousands of pounds. Insurance may be available to protect a buyer should a Burnt Oak Parochial Church Council enforce liability. Church properties in Burnt Oak include St Alphage and St Augustine Grahame Park.

Q.

How much can the cost of my searches be?

A.

The cost of conveyancing searches on a purchase in Burnt Oak noticeably varies, depending on the particular searches ordered. Informative but less frequently ordered extra searches include a British waterways search.

Q.

Are there any conservation areas in Burnt Oak?

A.

Buyers in Burnt Oak should be aware of several local conservation areas. Your conveyancing lawyer will advise further.

Q.

What type of inquiry in relation to the potential risk of possible flooding around Barnet will a Burnt Oak property lawyer report back on for a Fifties property we intend to buy?

A.

Your lawyer will carry out environmental searches that incorporate Burnt Oak flood risk area data. In addition the Burnt Oak solicitor might possibly propose a more involved (e.g. Landmark) flood search. At the time of writing (27/02/13) indications at the Environment Agency don’t indicate any flood warnings in Burnt Oak.

Q.

If I plan to purchase near Burnt Oak, in the parish of Cowley, do we need a chancel search?

A.

Your solicitor may suggest that a chancel search be taken out, regardless of the parish in which the house being purchased is found. Through some parish councils have opted to charge chancel repairs on current owners, there is no way to be certain that a parish where dues have not recently been paid will not automatically be the case for future owners, so the solicitor will be unable to make any guarantees, and will recommend insurance.

Q.

What actions can we take to bypass paying stamp duty in Burnt Oak?

A.

Stamp duty reduction scheme should not be considered when purchasing in Burnt Oak, as such schemes are highly expensive and often likely to fail.

Q.

How much is the council tax on a Fifties end of terrace building in Burnt Oak?

A.

Usually a report on title will provide the relevant Brent council tax band.
