Q.

I need a cheap solicitor to own a home. What should be watch out for?

A.

Many property lawyers purport to offer supposedly cheap conveyancing, but extra costs will be included in the solicitor's terms. Any costs found in terms of engagement should be reasonable and come into force only if the conveyancer must complete work beyond standard conveyancing for you, which could not be anticipated at the start of the process. Third party costs, termed disbursements, to be paid should be included on your quote. The Homeward Legal quote calculator will confirm the exact legal fees based on the property you are buying.

Q.

Is issuing new share certificate in freehold company a disbursement or a fee?

A.

Unscrupulous firms frequently hide fees which should be included as disbursements. It may be unclear whether a cost is a fee or disbursement, and if it should be included. This cost, for example, is a fee not a disbursement, and should be included in the quote for your conveyancing.

Q.

Should we opt for the firm of solicitors that usually works with by our local agent?

Estate agent recommendations are a not uncommon route to find a solicitor, however, such referrals must be compared with other local solicitors, or better-value firms found online, as some agents may 'recommend' the firm which pays to the largest referral fee, not the best value for you.

Q.

Are there any conservation areas in Kentish Town?

A.

There are several areas of conservation around Kentish Town. You may wish to contact the local council if you have specific questions, but your solicitor will address this during the house-buying process.

Q.

A.

We work in conjunction with most lenders approved by the CML. A number of mortgage specialists operate in Kentish Town, such as Santander, 233 Kentish Town Rd, London, NW5 2NB. Your solicitor will be able to provide more information.

Q.

What additional enquiries regarding the risk and history of a flood at Camden will a property solicitor in Kentish Town check out?

A.

A crucial part of the conveyancing protocol of buying a property involves a conveyancer carrying out conveyancing searches that go into details on the subject of Kentish Town flooding. An inexpensive thorough flood history/risk search (e.g. Landmark) could be recommended by a qualified lawyer in Kentish Town if the results of the initial conveyancing searches identify flood risk to the property. At the time of writing (25/02/13) indications at the Environment Agency website do not show any active flood warnings in Kentish Town.

Q.

In relation to the fact that 4 of the top 5 wettest years recorded were in last 12 years, I am concerned that environmental searches won't be thorough enough?

A.

A thorough lawyer in Kentish Town will recommend that you apply for flood risk searches if the environmental searches identifies any kind of the local Kentish Town flood risk

For added peace of mind it may be prudent to get in touch with a future neighbour.

Q.

Are buyers often gazumped in Kentish Town?

A.

This describes circumstances where a property seller acknowledges the 1st purchaser's offer, only to reject it in favour of a greater offer. Though being gazumped is uncommon when property prices are falling, there is still a chance. You should instruct a fast, efficient solicitor as early as possible to reduce the chance of gazumping.
