Q.

How do I find a cheap solicitor in Cockfosters for buying a residence?

A.

Several firms promote theoretically cheap conveyancing quotes. Unfortunately additional fees are frequently hidden in small print which unwary sellers and buyers fail to check. Any extra charges should be fair. Any disbursements must also be stated on a Cockfosters conveyancing quote. Our online calculator will create an accurate quote for your buy.

Q.

Do fixtures and fittings include things like furniture?

A.

In the main, fixtures are 'fixed' to walls and other surfaces and fixtures are free-standing items, like furniture. This is frequently overlooked, making it essential that the list of fixtures and fittings to be sold with the property is agreed early.

Q.

Would ordering a Homebuyer Report be a good idea when purchasing any property?

A.

Homeward Legal advise that all purchasers arrange a RICS surveyor. It is a fact that there are a wide range of issues which can negatively affect a property. These can include blocked drains, and these will not be addressed by your conveyancing solicitor.

Q.

I plan to purchase a property in St Marylebone All Souls. Will we need a chancel search?

A.

Your solicitor is likely to recommend a chancel search. Although some Parochial Church Councils have chosen to charge chancel repairs on the current owners, it cannot be guaranteed that a parish where repair costs have not been paid before, that this will not automatically be the case for future owners, so indemnity insurance may be advisable even if liability is unlikely.

Q.

The purchase is completing next December, what will be assessed for stamp duty?

A.

SDLT in Cockfosters will depend on the house's value. It is £11670 on a £389000 residential property in Cockfosters.

Q.

Myself and my partner are buying in Cockfosters. Are there any conservation areas in the area?

A.

Buyers in Cockfosters should be aware of a range of local conservation areas. Your solicitor will be able to provide more details and discuss the relevant responsibilities you would be taking on by purchasing in a conservation area.

Q.

What are Cockfosters searches?

A.

Conveyancing searches are a standardised pack of enquiries raised by the purchaser's conveyancing solicitor via one of several specific authorities. These searches do give much needed information and context, but cover solely legal facets of the purchase.

Q.

In a few weeks I am looking to move from our detached house near Cockfosters to a home in Colney Hatch , what is the best point to select a removal company?

A.

Most lawyers will recommend that you hold off booking a removals company until after formal exchange of contracts has occurred as the firm move date will not have been formalised. As a rule removals firms might charge a change of date premium .
