Q.

How do we get low cost conveyancing in Kilburn Park?

A.

Both high-street and online solicitors claim to offer theoretically 'the cheapest conveyancing quotes'. Often additional fees will be included in the terms and conditions. Busy, stressed buyers ignore these terms at their peril. Extras included in the terms should be reasonable and be applicable if your conveyancer must perform additional tasks for you, which could not be anticipated at the start of the process.

Q.

Which local authority is responsible for Kilburn Park?

A.

Kilburn Park is located in London Borough of Brent Council, One Stop Service, Town Hall, Forty Lane, Wembley, HA9 9HD, Tel: 33 8937 1200

Q.

I am intending to purchase a house in the parish of Edgware. Is a chancel search necessary?

A.

The solicitor responsible for your move could advise a chancel search. Through some Parochial Church Councils have opted to impose chancel repairs on the current owners of lay rectorships,

a conveyancing solicitor cannot verify that a parish where dues have not recently been paid will not be so in future. For property in the parish of Edgware, it is not safe to rely on the historical behaviour of the parish council alone as a guide.

Q.

What can we do if buying a converted house in a Brent local authority conservation area ?

A.

An integral part of the legal due diligence when buying a property includes procurement of searches of Brent local authority to see conservation area status and the required formal approval for any modifications. .

Q.

Is it advisable that I get a chancel search? I am buying a property in Kilburn Park.

A.

Potentially amounting to over £100,000 in repair cost obligations, chancel liability should be considered by buyers of Kilburn Park property likely to be affected. Following a change in the law, interest over any affected land must be registered by October 2013.

Q.

We are buying on a Kilburn Park brownfield site. Is nickel top-soil contamination likely?

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. Land may also be contaminated by other sources, including hazardous gases.

Q.

Environmental searches may be standard procedure but considering recent flooding for instance the fact that last year was second wettest year since on record are they actually good enough to report enough about the evolving Kilburn Park area flood risk?

A.

A thorough Kilburn Park conveyancing solicitor will consider also get thorough environmental searches if the standard searches identifies a significant risk.

For added assurance it may be sensible to speak to a local resident.

Q.

Will HS2 affect Uxbridge houses?

A.

HS2 is going to be an issue in property in the local authority of Hillingdon. This London to West Midlands line may be operational by 2026, but construction projects are expected to begin by 2017.
