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.

Will we need searches for chancel liability? I am purchasing a property on the same road as parsonage land in Kensal Rise.

A.

In Kensal Rise, where land was once owned by a lay impropriators, new owners of that property may be obliged to contribute towards the cost of maintenance of specific local church buildings. After the passing of an Act in 2002, interest over any affected land must be registered by October 2013. A conveyancing solicitor will be able to advise further. Kensal Rise churches include St Mark's and St Martin.

Q.

Should I get a survey?

A.

It is recommended that home buyers in Kensal Rise arrange a building survey. Buyers should be aware that there are a range of defects that can affect a property, including poor ventilation.

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.

Correct charges for properties in Kensal Rise are published at the Brent council website. As of 06 August 2012 band rates are:

  • Band A - £910.00
  • Band B - £1,062.00
  • Band C - £1,214.00
  • Band D - £1,366.00
  • Band E - £1,669.00
  • Band F - £1,973.00
  • Band G - £2,276.00
  • Band H - £2,731.00

Q.

Will the Kensal Rise conveyancer conduct any searches on the London Victorian terraced bungalow I am buying?

A.

When obtaining a mortgage the mortgage lender expects at least these searches - Local Authority, Drainage Search and Environment Search, and perhaps special local Kensal Rise searches e.g. a Official Search of whole with priority.

Q.

Do I need to employ the conveyancing solicitor suggested by our estate agent?

A.

The agent will often refer a solicitors firm. However, if the agent is paid a fee by the solicitor, there is a risk that an agent may choose the conveyancer who pays out the highest referral fee, not the most appropriate choice.

Q.

What are the alternatives if buying an extended home located inside a Brent council designated conservation area ?

A.

Part of conveyancing for buyers includes carrying out searches of Brent local authority to find out conservation area status and the existence of consent for modifications. .

Should no authority consents be produced the solicitor will give you professional advice on the best alternative for example buying an indemnity policy or getting retrospective approval from Brent planning authority.

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 .
