Q.

How do I get a discount conveyancing estimate?

A.

This point catches out many buyers and sellers, and can leave them paying far more in fees than they budgeted, and many firms promote cheap conveyancing. Often additional charges may be added into the terms of engagement. Excited buyers and sellers, eager to get underway, often ignore this small print when they instruct. Any extra charges found in your solicitor's terms should be reasonable. They only be applied if your conveyancer is required to complete extra work , which could not be anticipated at the start of the process. Our online calculator will create an accurate quote for your buy.

Q.

What should I be conscious of if we invest in a Dollis Hill home in a Barnet council designated conservation area ?

A.

An integral part of conveyancing includes the making of enquiries of Barnet planning authority to identify conservation area status and the appropriate consent for alterations. .

Q.

Will we need searches for chancel liability? We are buying a Dollis Hill house near priory grounds.

A.

The result of Aston Cantlow (PCC) v Wallbank confirmed that chancel repair liability could be enforced. Indemnity policies can be arranged if chancel liability is likely to

be enforced. The solicitor acting on your behalf will be able to advise as to whether a chancel search is necessary.

Q.

What average time should I expect it to take my assigned conveyancing solicitor to handle all of the conveyancing work for the lower floor of property we are thinking of buying in Dollis Hill?

A.

Q.

Will it be necessary to get a chancel search if we are buying in the parish of St Giles Cripplegate, near Dollis Hill?

A.

The solicitor may suggest a chancel search, regardless of the parish where the residence being bought is located. In older areas of Dollis Hill, chancel repair may be imposed on current owners of a residence where Parochial Church Councils may have not done so in the past, so the solicitor will be unable to make any guarantees, and will recommend insurance.
