Q.

What do you charge for the legal fees on a £245,000 house? We are trying to find an affordable conveyancing quote.

A.

Various solicitors promote 'the cheapest conveyancing', but additional costs will be included in the solicitor's terms of engagement which unwary sellers and buyers fail to check. A quote for conveyancing in Highgate ought to define any disbursements. Any additional costs listed in terms and conditions needs to be reasonable. They come into force only if your lawyer must perform additional tasks in your interest, which could not be anticipated at the start of the process. Homeward Legal quotes are not estimates, and offer a clear statement of your legal fees for a standard conveyancing transaction.

Q.

Which local authority looks after Highgate?

A.

Highgate is located in London Borough of Haringey Council, Civic Centre, High Road, Wood Green, London, N22 8LE, phone: 020 8489 0006

Q.

Is homewardlegal.co.uk able to act quickly on the conveyancing for residential property auction properties in Highgate?

A.

Our residential property lawyers often do the legal conveyancing buyers at auction. Solicitors always advocate buyers to choose a local conveyancing lawyer prior to the property auction date for an investigation of the property's legal title.

Post date of the auction your conveyancing lawyer is totally geared up to finishing the legal side of things inside the reduced time frame as typically required by the auction conditions.

Q.

What will my conveyancing searches be?

A.

The cost of conveyancing searches appreciably varies. Less frequently used searches include a limestone search.

Q.

What makes sale conveyancing to require so much time and effort?

A.

The legal work involved in buying or selling Highgate property could be lengthy even where there is no chain. Some delays are out of the conveyancing solicitor's hands. We strive to minimise their effect by driving the transaction forward. Delays may include problems with arranging a mortgage.

Q.

Lloyds TSB is our lender - what do I need to be aware of?

A.

Some lenders have limited the number of solicitors who can act for them. Homeward Legal can act for all major mortgage lenders to keep legal costs to a minimum.

Q.

Do you work with mortgage lenders with Highgate offices?

A.

Our solicitors have experience working closely with many lenders. A number of mortgage specialists operate in Highgate, including Mandl, Flat 1 Dowding House/Hillcrest, London, N6 4HD. Your solicitor can deal with the particular enquiries and searches your lender requires.

Q.

We plan to buy a church rectory in St Martin in the Fields. Is a chancel search specified?

A.

Whichever Highgate parish in which you are purchasing, a solicitor could recommend a chancel search. In older areas of Highgate, chancel repair may be imposed on the owners of a home where Parochial Church Councils may have not done so in the past. In the event that chancel liability may apply, your solicitor might recommend insurance rather than pulling out of the purchase.
