Q.

How do I find the best rates for conveyancing for a 302,000 property?

A.

Misleading conveyancing quotes catch out many sellers and buyers, leaving them to pay sometimes £100s more than planned. Many property lawyers purport to offer so-called cheap conveyancing, but extra fees are often hiding in the solicitor's terms. Any extra fees found in your solicitor's terms ought to be fair and reasonable. We provide quotes, not estimates, and clearly state the fees for a standard conveyancing.

Q.

Are there any designated conservation areas in East Finchley?

A.

There are numerous areas of conservation near or within East Finchley. These restrictions may impose liability on a buyer for unauthorised alterations made by previous owners, but the benefits will include protection for trees and other flora.

Q.

We are buying on a brownfield site. Is cadmium (Cd) topsoil contamination likely?

A.

The risks posed by soil contamination to East Finchley inhabitants are usually low. Also considering issues such as groundwater contaminants

like oil and chlorine, contaminants affecting East Finchley property will be factored into an environmental search.

Q.

I am planning to buy a 1950's property, should we have searches performed?

A.

Conveyancing searches are common set of enquiries ordered by your solicitor, for example a drainage search. Searches are strongly recommended, however they only deal with facets affecting the legal title.

Q.

For what reason does conveyancing legal work have so many delays?

A.

Conveyancing could be subject to numerous interruptions or delays even in ideal circumstances. The causes may be out of a solicitor's control. Homeward Legal do our best to lessen their cost by, for example, ordering searches as early as possible.

Q.

If I am intending to purchase near East Finchley, in the parish of South Hackney, do we need a chancel search?

A.

The conveyancer may suggest a chancel search. In East Finchley's much older areas, chancel repair has the potential to be charged on the owners of a house where Parochial Church Councils have previously chosen not to do so.

Q.

Do we need searches for chancel liability? I am buying on the same road as a church constructed around the 16th Century in East Finchley.

A.

Owners of property near to a local church may be required to cover the cost of repairs. This is referred to as chancel repair liability. As a consequence of a recent Act, interest over any affected land in East Finchley must be registered by October 2013. This will make it easier to identify affected property through a chancel search. Ecclesiastical properties in this area include Holy Trinity.

Q.

A.
