Q.

We are buying a an extended property in a designated conservation area in Harlow. Where can I find more information in regards to the standard of repair?

English Heritage have produced a list on the state of conservation areas along with the trend. Local Harlow conservation areas are designated by the local authority (Harlow) who preside over everything from upkeep of paths to the impediment of modern telephone boxes.

Q.

What is the explanation why conveyancing takes so long?

A.

The conveyancing process will occasionally take more time. We strive to diminish the effect of these delays wherever possible to do so by proactively handling all enquiries.

Q.

Swansea Building Society will be our lender - what do we need to consider?

A.

Buyers should know that some lenders have reduced the number of firms on their approved panel. For buyers, this can result in significantly increased conveyancing costs. Homeward Legal are able to act for the vast majority of CML-approved lenders so that you will not be required to pay legal fees for your lender's solicitor.

Q.

I am buying a restored chapel in Great Hallingbury. Is a chancel search appropriate?

A.

Your conveyancing solicitor may suggest that a chancel search be taken out. In Harlow's much older areas, chancel repair may be apportioned on new owners of a home where Parochial Church Councils (PCCs) have not imposed the same liability on the last owners, so the solicitor will be unable to make any guarantees, and will recommend insurance.

Q.

May my legal fees include any additional fees?

A.

No. Homeward Legal never hide any hidden costs for any reason. Your quote is an accurate price.

Q.

I am interested in purchasing a residence in Harlow. Are there any designated conservation areas in the area?

A.

Buyers in Harlow should be aware of several local conservation areas. These restrictions can result in the buyer inheriting liability of unauthorised changes, but the benefits will include properties can be easier to sell. Your property solicitor will advise further.
