Q.

I am looking for a solicitors firm that offers cheap conveyancing in Kingsland. What do we need to check for?

A.

Misleading conveyancing quotes catch out many sellers and buyers, leaving them to pay sometimes £100s more than planned. Many property lawyers promote 'the cheapest conveyancing quotes'. Often extra costs will be included in small print. Charges should be reasonable. Our quotes clearly state the solicitors' fees for a standard conveyancing transaction.

Q.

Should we make use of the property solicitor that usually works with by our agent?

A.

Agent recommendations are a common practice way for home buyers to find a solicitor. If the agent is paid a referral fee, however, the agent may prefer to suggest the firm which pays to the largest referral fee, not the law firm with the best reputation.

Q.

If I plan to buy in the parish of Kingsbury, are we advised to get a chancel search?

A.

Your conveyancing lawyer is likely to recommend that a chancel search be taken out, regardless of the parish

in which the building being purchased is found. In older areas of Kingsland, chancel repair may be imposed on the current owners of a building where Parochial Church Councils may have spared previous owners or tenants. It is not safe to rely on the historical behaviour of the parish council alone as a guide.

Q.

Is contaminated land in Kingsland a concern for any residential properties?

A.

Residential property could be contaminated by a wide range of environmental concerns, like hazardous and regulated installations. An environmental search should offer more information.

Q.

Please explain why conveyancing work to buy in Kingsland requires weeks?

A.

The conveyancing process can be exposed to significant delays. We seek to minimise their cost wherever reasonable by chasing for prompt responses. Reasons for delay may include difficulties with mortgage finance.

Q.

If you are purchasing in Kingsland close by rectory grounds, will we need to get a chancel search?

A.

Chancel repair can require Kingsland property owners to contribute towards the cost of upkeep of a local church. Some names or words such as 'abbeylands' give an indication of a property's history, and thus whether chancel liability may apply. Kingsland Church of England properties include St Michael & All Angels.

Q.

Which local authority is responsible for Kingsland?

A.

Kingsland is located in London Borough of Hackney Council, Hackney Service Centre, 1 Hillman Street, London, E8 1DY, contact: 020 8356 3000

Q.

What is the council tax on a Forties converted home in Kingsland?
