Q.

How do we find low cost conveyancing in Edgware?

A.

This matter catches out many property buyers and sellers, and can leave them paying far more in fees than they budgeted. Many firms purport to offer 'the cheapest conveyancing', but additional fees will be included in small print, left unread by preoccupied property buyers and sellers Any disbursements should be included on a conveyancing quote. The Homeward Legal quote calculator will confirm the exact legal fees based on the property you are buying.

Q.

Do I need to instruct the property lawyer referred by my local agent?

A.

The agent may recommend a solicitor, however, such referrals should be considered carefully, as the agent may recommend the solicitor willing to pay the highest referral fee, not the best solicitor for your needs.

Q.

What is gazumping?

A.

Gazumping happens when a house seller acknowledges the first purchaser's offer, only to dismiss it in favour of a higher offer. The chance of getting gazumped is present in any transaction. You should instruct a law firm early, and even before acceptance of an offer to reduce the chance of gazumping.

Q.

What will the council tax cost me for a buy to let Band B flat in Edgware?

Q.

We plan to purchase a church rectory in the parish of St Marylebone St Mary. Will we need a chancel search?

A.

A Edgware conveyancing solicitor may suggest that a chancel search is ordered. Through some Parochial Church Councils (PCCs) have chosen to exact chancel repairs on the current owners, there is no way to be certain that a parish where repair costs have not been paid before, that this will not be so in future, so the solicitor will be unable to make any guarantees, and will recommend insurance.

Q.

How much can my conveyancing searches be?

A.

The cost of searches noticeably varies. Searches are charged 'at cost'.

Q.

Do I need a property survey?

A.

It is strongly advised that you arrange a RICS surveyor to carry out a survey. There can be a wide range of defects which have a negative impact on a property, that will not be addressed during the conveyancing process, for example dry rot.

Q.

How can conveyancing seem to be so slow?

A.

The conveyancing process may be lengthy. Homeward Legal work hard to reduce their cost by driving the sale or purchase forward. Reasons for delay include waiting for responses from third parties.
