Q.

What are the best rates for conveyancing for a 237,000 house?

A.

Many firms claim to offer theoretically 'the cheapest conveyancing', but additional costs may inflate the final invoice. A quote for conveyancing in New Barnet should also state third party costs, termed disbursements, to be paid. Additional fees should be clearly defined. They come into force only if your conveyancer must complete unanticipated additional work in your interest, which could not be anticipated at the start of the process. The Homeward Legal quote calculator will confirm the solicitors' fees, based on the property you are buying.

Q.

May the charges for my conveyancing have any extra charges?

A.

No. Homeward Legal's solicitors do not hide any hidden extra fees. Your conveyancing quote is an honest and accurate fee.

Q.

Should we get a chancel search if I am intending to buy in the parish of Ashwell, near New Barnet?

A.

Whether you are buying a home in New Barnet or elsewhere in the county, the New Barnet conveyancing solicitor is likely to recommend that a chancel search be ordered.

Through some Parochial Church Councils have exercised their right to charge chancel repairs on the current owners of lay rectorships, there is no guarantee that a parish which has not been subject to chancel liability in the past will not be so in future. It is not safe to rely on the historical behaviour of the parish council alone as a guide.

Q.

The agent has put forward a lawyer whom they usually use. Is it risky to instruct them?

A.

Estate agent referrals are a commonplace way to find a solicitor. However, if they are paid a referral fee, some agents choose whichever firm pays the most per referral, not a firm with local expertise and a solid reputation.

Q.

What does fee for my conveyancing searches total?

A.

The cost of conveyancing searches will vary greatly, depending on the searches required by your lender. Searches are disbursements paid to a third party, and are charged at cost.

Q.

Can you suggest how to circumvent paying stamp duty land tax?

A.

We do not advise buyers risk any stamp duty mitigation, as such schemes are expensive and unreliable. There have been a number of government-sponsored schemes, such as higher thresholds for first-time buyers.

Q.

Where can I establish whether the conservation area I am buying in is neglected?

A.

Conservation areas are created by Enfield who police conservation area concerns from including things like poorly maintained pavements, the colours of paint used and public spaces. Following a campaign, English Heritage have put together records in relation to the condition of conservation areas in addition to the vulnerability of the area.

Q.

As a consequence of the Met Office warning of more intense rainfall we are anxious that flood risk searches won't be exacting enough?

A.

A thorough conveyancing solicitor in New Barnet will consider also get thorough conveyancing searches (environmental) if the initial search spots a any kind of New Barnet flooding risk.
