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


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.


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


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.


Should we get a building survey?


It is recommended that most purchasers book a property surveyor. It is a fact that there are a wide range

of problems which will impact a property, including blocked drains, and these will not be addressed by your conveyancing solicitor.


My lender is Bank of Ireland, is there anything we need to know?


Buyers should be aware that, in some cases, lenders have limited the number of solicitors who can act for them. Homeward Legal, however, will act on behalf of all major UK mortgage lenders.


Our purchase is completing in July, how is stamp duty calculated?


The Stamp Duty rate owed will depend on the valuation. On a £479000 New Barnet property, stamp duty will be £14370 (correct March 2013).


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


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.


Which mortgage lender panels in New Barnet are your solicitors members of?


Most lenders in New Barnet are on our panels. New Barnet lenders and mortgage specialists include Halifax, 99 High St, Barnet, EN5 5UP, Your Mortgage Services, 4/Temple Lodge/Netherlands Rd, New Barnet, Barnet, EN5 1DL, and Lyndhurst Financial Management Ltd, 57 Church Hill Rd, East Barnet, Barnet, EN4 8SY. Your solicitor should be able to advise further.


I am on a very tight budget - Will doing DIY conveyancing without a conveyancing solicitor in New Barnet save any money?


It is possible to handle the conveyancing unaided.

The truth is however that a lawyer in New Barnet juggles a large number of assignments ranging from chasing notices/share certificates or maintaining constant communication with agents most of which really need a qualified professional. AT any rate legal practices must carry appropriate insurance to protect you from any failures.
