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.

We have had a quote from you. Could I have to pay any extra fees?

A.

We will not charge any extra, hidden fees for your standard conveyancing. Your quote for conveyancing in Finchley is an honest and accurate fee.

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.

Is contaminated land a concern in Finchley?

A.

Land in Finchley would be contaminated by several natural causes and human activities, such as sand or gravel pits and pollution incidents. An environmental search will give more information.

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).

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.

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 do we need to know about 'fixtures and fittings'?

A.

Mainly, fixtures are permanently fixed to floors, walls and ceilings and fixtures can be more easily removed. The parties' may have widely differing assumptions about what will be included; this makes the completion of a fixtures and fittings form essential.
