Q.

How do I get a discount conveyancing estimate in Camden?

A.

Various conveyancers advertise theoretically cheap conveyancing quotes. Often extra charges are often hiding in small print. Busy, stressed home owners ignore these terms at their peril. Additional charges found in the solicitor's terms should be reasonable. Your quote should also clearly state any disbursements.Our quotes offer a clear statement of your solicitors fees for a standard purchase or sale.

Q.

Do you have low cost solicitors that conduct the conveyancing for auction properties in Camden?

A.

Our solicitors and licensed conveyancers in Camden regularly act for auction buyers and sellers. Homeward Legal always suggest purchasers to choose a solicitor in advance of the auction day to allow sufficient time for a full investigation.

Post auction day your instructed lawyer is completely geared up to briskly finishing the legal work inside 28 days as required .

Q.

Following recent news about the Met Office projecting more intense rainfall, I am questioning if conveyancing and environmental searches won't be thorough enough?

Environmental searches handled by a property lawyer in Camden will include a far more rigorous flood search if the risk is deemed significant.

If you remain still nervous it may be worth trying to visit a neighbour.

Q.

Are we advised to get a chancel search if I am intending to buy in the parish of Stanwell, near Camden?

A.

Whichever Camden parish you are purchasing in, a lawyer might recommend a chancel search. In Camden's much older areas, chancel repair dues can be collected on current owners of a property where Parochial Church Councils have previously chosen not to do so. Even if liability is unlikely, indemnity insurance is a sensible precaution.

Q.

What type of additional enquiries concerning the risk of a flood in the North London region will my property solicitor in Camden check?

A.

An essential component in the conveyancing process of buying a property involves a solicitor carrying out environmental searches that offer some details about the Camden flood risk. A significantly more specific search (e.g Homecheck) may be proposed by the conveyancing solicitor in Camden if the results of the initial searches highlight a flood risk.

Q.

What is the council tax on a Sixties converted home in Camden?

Almost always a title report will give the appropriate Camden council tax band. The latest council tax charges for properties in Camden are listed at the Camden local authority website. At the time of writing on 03/02/2013 band rates are:
