Q.

How do I get the best conveyancing rates in Fairlop for a 479k property?

A.

Many online and high street law firms offer 'the cheapest conveyancing quotes', but additional costs can inflate the final invoice. The conveyancing quote ought to list applicable disbursements.Our quotes clearly state all legal fees for a standard conveyancing transaction.

Q.

We are intending to purchase a residence in the parish of Islington Holy Trinity. Is a chancel search necessary?

A.

The property lawyer may suggest a chancel search. Although some Parochial Church Councils have determined to impose chancel repairs on the current owners of land subject to chancel liability, there is no guarantee that a parish where chancel repair fees have not been paid previously will not automatically be the case for future owners.

Q.

Do we need to get a chancel search if we are buying close to a glebe in Fairlop?

A.

The result of a court case between a parish council and owners of neighbouring farmland liable for church repairs reaffirmed that 'lay impropriators' of property

must contribute towards church repairs. Indemnity policies can be arranged if chancel liability is likely to be enforced. A conveyancing solicitor will be able to advise as to whether a chancel search is necessary, and recommend suitable insurance.

Q.

Are Fairlop any conservation areas going to affect us?

A.

Conservation areas conserve regions of historic or architectural significance. Your solicitor will advise further and address the impact buying in a conservation area may have.

Q.

I have requested a quote from you. Might there be any hidden costs?

A.

No. Homeward Legal's solicitors will never charge any additional costs to buy or sell a home in Fairlop. Some conveyancers give 'quotes' which are in fact estimates, which they will not be bound to.

Q.

How much is the council tax on a Thirties terraced house in Fairlop?

A.

Almost always the report on title should supply the appropriate Redbridge council tax band. Up-to-date charges for residents of Fairlop are published online at the Redbridge council website. On, 10 November 2012, rates for all bands are:

  • Band A - £935.00
  • Band B - £1,091.00
  • Band C - £1,246.00
  • Band D - £1,402.00
  • Band E - £1,714.00
  • Band F - £2,025.00
  • Band G - £2,337.00
  • Band H - £2,805.00

Q.

Is Fairlop soil likely to remain contaminated by antimony (Sb)?

A.

Some metal contamination may have occurred throughout Fairlop, but an area will only be identified as 'contaminated land' if the risk to human life or the environment is deemed unacceptable. The local authority for Fairlop will be able to provide more detail on cases of contamination.

Q.

What type of additional enquiries regarding the risk of a flood at Redbridge will a property lawyer in Fairlop advise on?

A.

A key part of the legal procedure of purchasing a property involves the conveyancing solicitor making an application for environmental searches that set out certain details on the subject of Fairlop flooding.
