I need an affordable conveyancing estimate. as we are on a budget.


Many buyers and sellers seeking discount conveyancing are caught out by the lure of very low conveyancing rates, and many law firms purport to offer 'the cheapest conveyancing'. However extra fees are frequently hidden in the small print. Extra costs included in the small print should be reasonable. Our quotes clearly state all legal fees for a standard conveyancing transaction.


In relation to the fact that last year was second wettest year since on record we are anxious that flood risk searches aren't exacting enough?


A qualified conveyancing solicitor in Harlesden will advise you to also get conveyancing searches if the first conveyancing searches establishes a any kind of Harlesden flood risk.

For extra history might be able to get in touch with a future neighbour.


What kind of enquiries in connection with the uncertain risk of flooding in the Brent region will my conveyancer in Harlesden report on for a Regency maisonette we are hoping to buy?

A residential property conveyancing solicitor makes an application for property conveyancing searches, which include Harlesden historical flood risk data. A substantially more involved Brent database search, such as the Landmark search, will sometimes be advocated by your lawyer in Harlesden if the results of the environmental search suggest a potential flood risk to the Regency maisonette. The most recent (24/02/13) reports on the Environment Agency website do not list any flood warnings in the Harlesden area.


Should the home's fixtures and fittings include items such as a dishwasher?


New owners are regularly frustrated by a lack of clarity around which fixtures and fittings should be included in a purchase. Completion or agreement of a fixtures and fittings form is unfortunately often left to the last minute, when a dispute may jeopordise the transaction.


Do you recommend making the effort to avoid paying stamp duty in Harlesden?


Stamp duty avoidance is not recommended. Such schemes are expensive and HMRC may challenge a scheme up to six years later.


What should I be conscious of when buying a period house located inside a Brent local authority designated conservation area ?


Part of the legal process involves making enquiries of Brent planning authority to confirm conservation area status and the appropriate permission for alterations. .


How can I find out additional info on the conservation areas in Harlesden and Harlesden?


Conservation area concerns, like paths or poorly maintained pavements etc. are overseen by the local authority (Brent). English Heritage maintain a detailed list of the condition of conservation areas as well as the vulnerability of the area.


Is a postage, photocopying and phone calls fee a fee or disbursement?


Unfortunately, some firms pass off fees which should be included as disbursements. It may not be obvious if a cost is a fee or disbursement, and if it should be included. This cost is a fee not a disbursement. It should be included in a quote for your conveyancing.
