Q.

I am looking for a cheap solicitor quote to buy a property. What is included?

A.

Many home owners seeking discount conveyancing are caught out by the lure of very low conveyancing rates. Many conveyancers promote 'the cheapest conveyancing quotes', but additional costs are frequently hidden in the terms. Chargeswhich are listed in the terms should be fair and only apply to matters if your conveyancer must perform additional tasks on your behalf, which could not be anticipated at the start of the process. We offer quotes, not estimates, and clearly state all legal fees you pay for a standard conveyancing transaction.

Q.

What do we need to be aware of if buying a converted flat in a Brent council designated conservation area ?

A.

An integral part of conveyancing for buyers includes the ordering of searches of Brent planning authority to check conservation area status and permission for changes. In the event that no appropriate permissions be produced, your conveyancing solicitor will advise you of the options e.g. taking out an indemnity policy or requesting retrospective approval from the planning authority.

Q.

We are buying a chapel in Holborn St George the Martyr. Will a chancel search be important?

A.

The lawyer is likely to recommend that a chancel search is taken out, regardless of the parish where the home being bought is

found. In Kingsbury's much older areas, chancel repair may be apportioned on current owners of a home where parish councils may have spared previous owners or tenants, so it can be difficult to use this as a guide.

Q.

Following recent news about the fact that last year was second wettest year since 1920 I am apprehensive that environmental searches may not be thorough enough?

A.

A good Kingsbury conveyancing solicitor will consider carry out environmental searches if the environmental searches flag up a significant risk Kingsbury flood risk area data

For added area background perhaps you could contact a neighbour.

Q.

How do we uncover additional info on the conservation areas in Kingsbury and Kingsbury?

A.

English Heritage, a government body, keep records about the state of repair of conservation areas along with the vulnerability of the area. Local Kingsbury conservation area matters, for example building materials, non sympathetic doors or street guard rails are overseen by the local Brent planning authority.

Q.

How much is the council tax on a Sixties detached property in Kingsbury?

A.

Ordinarily, the title report should cover the relevant Brent council tax band. Council tax charges for residents of Kingsbury are listed on the Brent council website. On (17 June 2012) rates are as follows:

  • 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.

What should we do regarding vanadium (V) soil contamination in Kingsbury?

A.

Even where some contamination has occurred in Kingsbury, risk levels are usually low. Various bodies hold data on land contaminants affecting Kingsbury, including local authorities.

Q.

I have found a number of online manuals giving details on doing the legal work yourself. Do I therefore need to spend money on a conveyancing solicitor in Kingsbury for my home move?

A.

It is certainly possible for you to complete the conveyancing yourself.

In reality however, a Kingsbury lawyer takes care of a significant number of exercises e.g. approving enquiries on searches or apportioning service charges many of which really need experience. Nonetheless solicitors need to take out indemnity cover that protects you from any professional failures on the part of the solicitor.
