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.

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.

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.

Do I need to make use of a property lawyer referred by my local agent?

A.

Many agents in Yeadon have referral deals with solicitors whereby they refer work. Such referrals should be compared to other online or local firms, as some agents may 'recommend' whichever firm pays the most per referral, not the best value for you.

Q.

Why does Finchley purchase conveyancing seem to be so slow? The last solicitor we used felt very slow.

A.

Conveyancing can take more time than budgeted. Homeward Legal strive to minimise the impact of these delays where it is possible to do so. There are numerous reasons for delay, such as slow third parties such as landlords or managing agents.

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.

How can I find if any of the designated Finchley conservation areas are in a bad state?

A.

The most recent account of the state of conservation areas is reported by English Heritage (formerly Historic Buildings and Monuments Commission for England) and this information is listed at English Heritage - College Farm with Finchley marked as very bad with high vulnerability and improving.

Q.

The property seller appears to have installed unsightly cladding to the property which I think may conflict with Morford Way Eastcote conservation area guidelines.

A.

Part of the legal process includes the making of enquiries of the Barnet authority to determine conservation area status and the requisite permission for any changes. In the event that no necessary permissions be supplied the solicitor will inform you of the options which may include purchasing an indemnity insurance policy or requesting retrospective consent from the council.
