Q.

How do we get a cheap solicitor to sell a property?

A.

Many online and high street conveyancers claim to offer theoretically 'the cheapest conveyancing quotes'. Unfortunately extra costs are often hiding in the solicitor's terms of engagement. A quote for conveyancing in Highbury should list costs to be paid to third parties, including search providers, (disbursements). Extra costs listed in terms of engagement should be fair and reasonable. They be applicable if the lawyer is required to complete extra work for you, which could not be anticipated at the start of the process.

Q.

The agent has suggested a law firm. Is it risky to instruct this solicitor?

A.

An agent in Shrewton will endorse one or more conveyancing firms, however, these referrals need to be weighed up against alternatives, including online or local firms, as there is a risk that an agent may choose whichever firm pays the most per referral, not the law firm with the best reputation.

Q.

How do I find out additional information on the Highbury and Highbury conservation areas?

A.

English Heritage, a government body, have conducted a survey and created a detailed list about the condition of conservation areas in addition to the vulnerability of the area.

Local Highbury conservation area issues e.g. street furniture, addition of hard standings to the front of properties or rundown streets are handled by the local authority (Islington).

Q.

Do you recommend that I get a chancel search? We are buying a residence in Highbury.

A.

Q.

In respect of the Met Office projecting more intense rainfall, we are wondering whether flood risk searches may not be detailed enough?
