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.

Is there a government body any detailed public data on the conservation areas in Canonbury?

A.

English Heritage have assembled records of the condition (poor to good) of conservation areas in England. Local Canonbury conservation area matters, for instance paths or street posts are handled by the local Hackney planning authority.

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.

I am intending to buy a barn conversion in Bromley. Will a chancel search be appropriate?

A.

A conveyancer is likely to recommend that a chancel search is taken out. In older areas of Canonbury, chancel repair may be imposed on the owners of a property where parish councils may have spared previous owners or tenants. For property in the parish of Bromley, it is not safe to rely on the historical behaviour of the parish council alone as a guide.

Q.

How is Stamp Duty Land Tax determined in Canonbury, and what should it be on a £1011000 residential property?

A.

The Stamp Duty rate due will depend on the value of the property. On a £1011000 property, stamp duty will be £50550.*

Q.

How can I guard against gazumping?

A.

Gazumping describes circumstances where an offer is, following agreement, later rejected by the home owner, opting instead for a better offer. The risk of getting gazumped exists for almost any purchase. Consider instructing an efficient solicitor early, and even before acceptance of an offer to reduce the chance of your offer being gazumped.

Q.

What are the alternatives when buying a Canonbury semi detached house inside a Hackney council designated conservation area ?

A.

Part of the legal process involves ordering of LLC1 searches of Hackney council to confirm conservation area status and the appropriate consent for any modifications. .

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.
