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.

Does anybody hold any thorough easily accessible data on the standard of Kensal Rise conservation areas?

A.

Following a campaign, English Heritage have put together a list about the state of repair of conservation areas as well as the trend of the area.

Conservation area concerns for instance private spaces, satellite dishes or ugly parking meters are dealt with by the local Brent planning authority.

Q.

We are purchasing a £1.083mil, how is stamp duty tax calculated?

A.

The Stamp Duty you pay will depend on the purchase price. For a residential property purchased for £1.083mil, stamp duty will be £54150.

Q.

How much can the fees for the searches come to?

A.

The cost of conveyancing searches in Kensal Rise can vary, subject to which searches have been ordered. They are disbursements.

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.

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.

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.

I am intending to purchase a rectory in Acton. Is a chancel search necessary?

A.

A solicitor responsible for your move could recommend a chancel search. Chancel repair has the potential to be charged on new owners of a building where parish councils have previously chosen not to do so, so indemnity insurance may be advisable even if liability is unlikely.
