Q.

How do I find the cheapest conveyancing solicitors in Kensal Rise?

A.

Misleading conveyancing quotes catch out many buyers, leaving them to pay sometimes £100s more than planned, and many solicitors offer 'the cheapest conveyancing quotes', however additional costs may be added into the solicitor's terms of engagement that buyers often do not check. Additionals included in the small print needs to be fair and reasonable. They only apply in cases where your lawyer is required to complete unexpected extra work in your interest, which could not be anticipated at the start of the process.

Q.

We have taken out a quote from you. Could there be any additional fees?

A.

We will not charge any hidden extra fees for conveyancing in Kensal Rise. Some firms only provide estimates disguised as quotes. The bill you receive on completion can be much greater.

Q.

I have been reading about handling the legal side of home moving when selling a maisonette , Is it practicable to do the legal conveyancing process ourselves?

A.

Technically, there is no reason at all why a buyer cant do the legal process yourself.

The truth is however that a conveyancer juggles a huge number of roles from such as chasing notices/share certificates and communicating with managing agents most of which are more safely handled with

appropriate experience. Additionally legal practices are required by their regulator to take out suitable professional indemnity insurance in order to protect you in the event of any failures.

Q.

How is Kensal Rise contaminated land identified when buying a property?

A.

A range of contaminants may impair Kensal Rise property, and an environmental search will confirm if a plot of land may be impacted by contaminants such as pollution incidents or existing and proposed overhead electricity cables.

Q.

Does homewardlegal.co.uk look after the conveyancing for auction properties in Kensal Rise?

A.

Yes - Our firm is very knowledgeable with property auction protocols. Usually unusually constructed houses such as investment properties, are bought at auction which need extra review before buying. Homeward Legal therefore suggest buyers at auction to decide on a local conveyancing solicitor prior to the date of the auction to give enough time for a full report. Subsequently, following the auction day itself your selected conveyancing lawyer is absolutely geared up to completing all of the legal work in as short a time frame as required .

Q.

Can I confirm that a house is in one of Kensal Rise's conservation areas?

A.

With over 8,000 areas of conservation in England, the neighbourhoods in or near Kensal Rise include several areas of historic or architectural significance designated as protected. Living in a conservation area can mean an increase in local property values, but the restrictions can make repairs more costly or time-consuming. A conveyancing solicitor will address the consequences of purchasing property in a conservation area.

Q.

We are buying on a new development brownfield land. Supposedly strontium topsoil contamination may be an issue.

A.

Though the dangers are usually minor, if significant harm could be caused to people or protected species by the contamination, it is likely to be labelled contaminated land. Data on many contaminants, such as groundwater contamination, will be included in an environmental search.

Q.

What is the council tax on a Fifties semi-detached dwelling in Kensal Rise?

A.

Conventionally a conveyancer's title report will provide the relevant Brent council tax band.
