Q.

What will the overall charge be on the sale of a £98,000 home? We are looking for affordable conveyancing.

Q.

Should we opt for the conveyancing that works with by our estate agent in Alperton?

A.

Both agents and mortgage brokers will often endorse a solicitor. However, if the agent is paid a fee by the solicitor, it may be the case that the agent recommends whichever firm pays the most per referral, not the law firm with the best reputation.

Q.

How soon do I need to find a conveyancer?

A.

The straightforward answer is, the faster you instruct the better. Instructing your solicitor earlier for a sale means that prior to marketing the property, documents can be prepared to make it potentially more attractive to motivated buyers, whereas if you are buying your offer may be taken more seriously if you already have a solicitor instructed.

Q.

The current owner appears to have fitted ill-suited cladding on the maisonette which I think might infringe the Towthorpe conservation area guidelines.

A.

Local authority LLC1 searches carried out by the solicitor during the legal process should determine whether the property is inside a designated conservation area proof of the appropriate permissions for changes to the property will be asked for.

Q.

Flood searches are based on past records but when one considers recent events for example the fact that 4 of the top 5 wettest years recorded were in last 12 years are they in fact the ideal way t advise on sufficient information about the Houghton Regis flood risk area?

A.

The lawyer in Houghton Regis should also get property conveyancing searches if the standard searches determine a risk of flooding in Houghton Regis.

You could always contact a close neighbour to get additional local information.

Q.

Are there many buyers in Houghton Regis gazumped?

A.

Gazumping occurs when a property seller approves an offer, only to later refuse it in favour of a greater offer. It may happen weeks into a sale. There is almost always a risk of gazumping. To reduce the likelihood of being gazumped, consider instructing a proactive solicitor as soon as possible.

Q.

In about 6 weeks we are expecting to be moving from our detached building in Houghton Regis into a new flat in Barton Le Clay what is the best point to select a home removal firm?

A.

Your solicitor would will advocate that home vendors hold off booking a removals company until contracts have exchanged as in advance of this in all probability an agreed home moving date wont have been confirmed.
