Q.

I need a property lawyer that offers cheap conveyancing. Will I get a quote or and estimate?

A.

The confusion over what is, and is not, included in a 'cheap' quote leaves many home owners paying out more than they anticipated in the end, and many solicitors offer cheap conveyancing. Often extra costs can inflate the final invoice. A quote ought to define any disbursements.We offer quotes, not estimates, and clearly state all legal fees you pay for a standard conveyancing transaction.

Q.

Does your solicitors company get involved in the conveyancing of auction properties in Canonbury?

A.

We are accustomed to working with property auction procedures. Traditionally specialist homes for example investment properties, are included at auction which tend to require added fact-finding by the property lawyer Homeward Legal therefore advise bidders to choose a property conveyancing lawyer well before the property auction date to allow for a full review of the sellers legal pack.

Subsequently, immediately after the date of the auction your appointed property lawyer is prepared for concluding the transaction inside the reduced time frame as conventionally required by the conditions of sale.

Q.

Would getting a property survey be sensible when purchasing any property in Canonbury?

A.

It is highly recommended that Canonbury buyers arrange a home buyer survey. There are a range of defects that can negatively affect a property, which will not be covered by the legal work. These include rotten roof timbers.

Q.

Do I need a chancel search? I am buying near a 17th Century 'parson's close' in Canonbury.

A.

Property owners near to nearby church land must cover the cost of repairs, where chancel repair liability exists. After the passing of an Act in 2002, interest over any affected land in Canonbury must be registered by October 2013. This will make it easier to identify affected property through a chancel search.

Q.

How much is the council tax on a period end of terrace home in Canonbury?

A.

Almost always a title report should provide the Hackney council tax band. Up-to-date charges for residents of Canonbury are published on the Hackney local authority website. At the time of writing (25/07/2012) rates for all bands are:

  • Band A - £870.00

  • Band C - £1,160.00

  • Band E - £1,595.00
  • Band F - £1,885.00
  • Band G - £2,175.00
  • Band H - £2,610.00

Q.

How early do you need to speak to a solicitor in Canonbury?

A.

If you use a conveyancing solicitor offering a 'no move, no fee' guarantee, the sooner you instruct a conveyancing solicitor, the better, as the legal work can start straight away. Some suggest waiting before instruction until an offer is accepted, but delays can risk the other side pulling out, particularly in uncertain market conditions.

Q.

Are there any conservation areas in Canonbury?

A.

There are several areas of conservation near or within Canonbury. These restrictions create additional maintenance and repair responsibilities, but the benefits include protection for parks and green spaces. Your conveyancing solicitor will be able to advise further.
