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.

To complete on our purchase ASAP, can we arrange a fast conveyancing process in Kentish Town?

A.

Crucial to moving faster is to employing a proactive and experienced property lawyer. When choosing a property lawyer, you should ask yourself the following: Do they offer 'instant' online quotes? What methods of communication do they use? Posting documents can adds days of waiting to a purchase. Do they work on a 'no sale, no fee' basis?

Q.

A.

In general, there is no strict definition of 'fixtures and fittings'. Your solicitor will request the agreement of a fixtures and fittings form to avoid such disputes and will clarify precisely which items will be sold with the property.

Q.

Is it recommended to get a chancel liability search? We are purchasing a house next to a church in Kentish Town.

A.

Property owners in an area near an old church building may be required to contribute towards repairs. This is referred to as chancel repair liability. As a consequence of a recent Act, interest over any affected land must be registered by October 2013. Your conveyancing lawyer will suggest an appropriate indemnity policy to address chancel liability. Churches in Kentish Town include Holy Trinity, Oseney Crescent St Luke, St Benet & All Saints and St Martin.
