Q.

Noted Colney Hatch interest

A.

Arkley Londn Windmill, Kenwood House English Heritage and RAF Museum Hendon Aviation Museum are in the vicinity of Colney Hatch.

The most convenient hospital to Colney Hatch is Finchley Memorial.

Q.

How can we ensure our cheap quote is fixed? I need to find a low cost conveyancing quote.

A.

Numerous conveyancers advertise supposedly 'the cheapest conveyancing'. Unfortunately extra costs are frequently hidden in the small print. Extra fees found in your solicitor's terms should be fair and reasonable. They only be applied if the lawyer must perform additional tasks for you, which could not be anticipated at the start of the process.

Q.

What average time should I expect it to take my designated property lawyer to finish the conveyancing process for the top floor of forties home we are buying?

A.

It can take anywhere between 1 month and three months dependent on various things e.g. the speed of the seller's property solicitor, or whether additional searches are required. Our proactive property solicitors are very proactive and endeavour towards completing the legal process in as short a time as possible.

Q.

Which environmental factors can affect land in Colney Hatch, and are they checked for comprehensively?

A.

Several contaminants caused by naturally-occurring factors may impair Colney Hatch property, and an environmental

search will confirm if a particular property is affected by Colney Hatch contaminants such as proximity to landfill sites and petroleum and fuel sites.

Q.

How do you calculate stamp duty, and what should it be on a £1194000 home?

A.

Stamp Duty in Colney Hatch depends on the purchase price. For a Colney Hatch home purchased for £1194000, the rate will be £59700.

Q.

Do we need to get a chancel search? We are buying next to a church built in around the 1600s in Colney Hatch.

A.

Where land in Colney Hatch was once owned by a lay-rector, new owners of that property may be obliged to cover the cost of repairs to a local church. A chancel search addresses if such a liability exists. Liability is more common in some parts of the country. The solicitor acting on your behalf will confirm that a chancel search is appropriate.

Q.

Do you work with many lenders with offices in Colney Hatch?

A.

We can work with the majority of lenders assisting Colney Hatch homebuyers. Local mortgage lenders and brokers include Mortgage Store, 2 Church Street, Ampthill, Bedford, MK45 2EH, Phillips & Co, 5 Church La, Flitton, Bedford, MK45 5EL, and Castle Mortgages, 5 Grove Pl, Bedford, MK40 3JJ.

Q.

If I plan to buy in the parish of St George Hanover Square, are we advised to get a chancel search?

A.

The conveyancing lawyer could recommend a chancel search. Although some Parochial Church Councils have determined to exact chancel repairs on the current owners, it cannot be guaranteed that a parish in which lay rectors have not been expected to pay chancel repair dues recently will continue to be free from liability, so it can be difficult to use this as a guide.

Q.

In a few months we are going to be moving from our terraced building on the outskirts of Colney Hatch to a new dwelling in Burnt Oak , at what point to choose a removals firm?

A.

Most conveyancers usually recommend that you delay arranging removals until the point where the contracts have exchanged as in advance of this typically a home moving date wont have been set. Frequently removals firms charge a cancellation cost . For more information try A nice man with a van, 20 Muswell Hill Broadway, London, N10 1DE Tel: 0844 247 0439.
