Q.

I need fixed rate Finchley conveyancing, we are on a tight budget.

A.

Several law firms advertise theoretically cheap conveyancing quotes. Unfortunately extra costs may be added into the solicitor's terms. Busy, stressed sellers and buyers ignore these terms at their peril. Any extra costs listed in your solicitor's terms ought to be fair. They only apply to matters if your lawyer must complete work beyond standard conveyancing for you, which could not be anticipated at the start of the process.

Q.

What can the searches cost?

A.

With Homeward Legal, a client in Finchley is expected to pay at most £249 for searches for a purchase in Finchley. The most generally useful searches include a drainage search and a mining search.

Q.

Does your firm conduct the legal conveyancing of auction properties in Finchley?

A.

Homeward Legal is familiar with property auction conveyancing. Usually unusual houses such as development propositions, are sold at auction which necessitate deeper legwork. We therefore strongly encourage

that buyers formally instruct a CQS lawyer well in advance of the property auction date to allow adequate time for a title report.

After the property auction date your lawyer is completely focused on quickly completing the conveyancing in a month as typically required .

Q.

We are planning to buy a 1960's property, should we have searches performed?

A.

These searches are queries carried out for the buyer, and deal with the legal condition of the property's title.

Q.

Do I need to get a chancel search? We are purchasing by a 1600s 'church furlong' in Finchley.

A.

In Finchley, where land was once owned by a lay rectors, new owners of that property may be obliged to pay for repairs to churches. Owners who have bought property prior to 2003 may be totally unaware that a liability exists if a chancel search was not carried out. A conveyancing solicitor will be able to advise further. Finchley ecclesiastical properties where chancel liability may apply include St Mary and St Paul.

Q.

What areas of conservation are there in Finchley?

A.

With 9300 protected areas across the country, the regions around Finchley include several conservation areas. Conservation areas in Finchley include College Farm. Your lawyer will provide more details and discuss what specific restrictions are in place.

Q.

Natwest is our mortgage lender, what do we need to know?

A.

Prior to recent changes, solicitors could carry out mortgage-related work for most lenders. A small number of lenders are now limiting the firms who can act for them, potentially creating higher legal costs for buyers. We are able to act for many UK mortgage lenders.

Q.

Will a Finchley property solicitor apply for any searches on the London thirties mid terrace flat I am intending to purchase?

A.

When you are getting a mortgage, your lender will expect at least these searches - Local Authority, Drainage and Water Search and Environment Search as well as any less common searches, which may include a Land charge Search (bankruptcy only).
