Q.

How can we ensure our cheap quote is fixed? We need affordable conveyancing in Maida Hill.

A.

Many firms purport to offer theoretically cheap conveyancing quotes, but extra charges are frequently hidden in the terms of engagement. We offer quotes, not estimates, and clearly state all legal fees you pay for a standard conveyancing transaction.

Q.

Would you recommend that we get a chancel search? I am buying close by a church constructed in the 1400s in Maida Hill.

A.

In Maida Hill, where land was once owned by a lay rectors, new owners of that property may be obliged to fund maintenance of specific local church buildings. Several sources are used to determine liability in Maida Hill, including maps of Maida Hill's parish boundaries.

Does my conveyancer in Maida Hill carry out any searches on the London Sixties end-of-terrace property I am intending to buy?

A.

When applying for a mortgage a mortgage lender expects a solicitor to get at least these searches - Local Authority (personal or official), Drainage Search (Con29DW or personal) and Environment Search and perhaps specific searches for instance Subsidence report.

Q.

Will we need a chancel search if I am buying in the parish of St Andrew Holborn?

A.

The property lawyer could recommend a chancel search. In Maida Hill's much older areas, chancel repair dues can be collected on new owners of a house where church councils may have spared previous owners or tenants, so it can be difficult to use this as a guide.

For a fast conveyancing transaction on the purchase of a £411,000 property, what can we do to accelerate the transaction?

A.

Crucial to faster conveyancing is to use a proactive and experienced conveyancing solicitor. Ask these questions when identifying your conveyancer:

  • Do they work on a 'no sale, no fee' basis?

Q.

How do I find out additional info on the conservation areas in Maida Hill and Maida Hill?

A.

Local conservation areas such as paths, removal of front gardens for parking or advertising hoardings are overseen by the local authority (Westminster). English Heritage, a government body, administer information about the state of repair of conservation areas in England in addition to the trend.

Q.

Is a Professional Indemnity fee a disbursement or fee?

A.

Fees and disbursements ought to be clearly identified on a quote for your conveyancing. This cost,e.g., is a fee not a disbursement, and will normally be included in a quote.

Q.

What are the issues if we buy country house in a Westminster council designated conservation area ?

A.

Part of the due diligence for buyers includes ordering of LLC1 searches of the Westminster authority to determine conservation area status and the requisite permission for developments. .
