Q.

Can you confirm your cheapest fee for a 344,000 house? I need an affordable Kilburn conveyancing estimate.

A.

Various solicitors claim to offer so-called cheap conveyancing quotes. Often extra fees are frequently hidden in small print. Any disbursements should also be clearly stated on a conveyancing quote Additional costs listed in your solicitor's terms ought to be reasonable and only apply to matters if the solicitor must complete additional work , which could not be anticipated at the start of the process. Our quotes clearly state all legal fees for a standard conveyancing transaction.

Q.

What do we need to be aware of if we acquire a period home in a Camden planning authority designated conservation area ?

A.

An integral part of the conveyancing process includes the application for searches of the local authority to verify conservation area status and consent for alterations. In the absence of any the necessary permissions the solicitor will inform you of all options, which include obtaining from Camden planning authority or an indemnity policy.

Q.

Q.

Mortgage Agency Services will be our lender, is there anything we need to know?

We are intending to buy a restored chapel in Grinton. Are we advised to get a chancel search?

A.

The lawyer may suggest a chancel search. Through some Parochial Church Councils (PCCs) have taken the decision to exact chancel repairs on the current owners, a conveyancing solicitor cannot verify that a parish in which lay rectors have not been expected to pay chancel repair dues recently will not automatically be the case for future owners.
