Q.

On the purchase of a £423,000 property, what will be the fees? We need low cost conveyancing in Colindale.

A.

Many solicitors advertise supposedly cheap conveyancing quotes, however additional fees are often hiding in the terms of engagement. Costs which are listed in the terms should be fair and only be applied if your solicitor must perform additional tasks for you, which could not be anticipated at the start of the process.

Q.

What causes Colindale conveyancing to take months to complete?

A.

The conveyancing process may endure stressful setbacks. We aim to minimise the cost of these delays by, for example, ordering searches as early as possible. Common delays may include the time taken to return management information.

Q.

Does a Colindale conveyancer apply for any conveyancing searches on the London forties terraced building I am buying?

If buying and obtaining a mortgage the lender mandates a specified set of searches, including these searches - Local Authority (personal or official), Drainage and Water Search (CON29DW or personal) and Environment Search, and, depending on certain criteria, less common searches such as Anti Money Laundering Search.

Q.

For fast conveyancing on the purchase of a £509,000 property, what should we organise to accelerate our move?

A.

Key to buying faster is to use a proactive property lawyer. When choosing a property lawyer, consider these points: Do they work on a 'no sale, no fee' basis? Do they offer 'instant' online quotes? Do they use email as the preferred mode of communication?

Q.

Which factors can contaminate land in Colindale, and are they checked for thoroughly?

A.

Residential property may have been contaminated by numerous natural causes, and an environmental search will confirm if a home may be affected by contaminants in the region including limestone or gypsum quarrying.

Q.

If I am buying next to parish grounds in Colindale, will I need a chancel search?

A.

There are fifteen thousand parishes in the UK. Owners of property within some of these may be required to cover the cost of the repair of a local church. Several sources are used to determine liability in Colindale, including the Title Register database. Colindale churches which may give rise to chancel liability include St Matthias.

Q.

Could my legal fees take into account any hidden fees?

A.

Homeward Legal will never charge any hidden fees. Some websites offer unrealistically low 'quotes' which are in fact estimates, which they will not be bound to.

Q.

Can you confirm how to get out of paying for stamp duty?

A.

Homeward Legal do not recommend any stamp duty reduction. These schemes are often uneconomical and , if the scheme fails, you may be charged a penalty of up to 100% of the stamp duty amount owed. There have been a number of legal initiatives, such as for first-time buyers.
