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.

How is contaminated land in New Barnet identified during the conveyancing process?

A.

Property could be contaminated by a range of factors caused by man and by nature, such as environmental radon sources and proximity to scrap yards. An environmental search will offer more detail.

Q.

What kind of enquiries concerning the risk of floods in the Hertfordshire region will my New Barnet property lawyer report on a Regency building I am going to purchase?

Your conveyancer will apply for standard conveyancing and environmental searches that will include New Barnet flood risk area information.

Q.

What length of time should conveyancing to transfer a property require? I need a fast service.

A.

Generally speaking, the number of weeks required to buy or sell a property is not wholly predictable, affected by several issues which may include if either party has a mortgage. The national average is 8 to 12 weeks, but we take a proactive approach, driving the sale or purchase to complete sooner.

Q.

What will the New Barnet conveyancing solicitor advise if the home is located in a conservation are in Enfield council that possibly has unlawful removal of chimney stacks fitted?

A.

The local authority LLC1 searches conducted by a solicitor will determine whether the New Barnet property a designated conservation area and evidence of Coal Authority consent for modifications will be required.

Q.

How could purchase conveyancing be so drawn out? Should we be worried?

A.

Conveyancing in New Barnet may be held up even in the best of circumstances. The reasons can unfortunately be out of a solicitor's hands. Homeward Legal endeavour to lessen their burden by driving the transaction forward.

Q.

What is the council tax on a Forties end of terrace Band F building in New Barnet?

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.
