Q.

How do we find affordable conveyancing in New Southgate?

A.

Many conveyancers claim to offer supposedly cheap conveyancing, however additional costs are frequently hidden in the terms. Busy, stressed property buyers and sellers ignore these terms at their peril. We provide quotes, not estimates, and clearly state the fees for a standard conveyancing.

Q.

What do we need to calculate stamp duty tax in New Southgate, and what amount should we budget for a £932000 home?

A.

Stamp Duty will depend on the purchase price of the house or flat. It will be £37280 on a £932000 house or flat.*

Q.

Is a Telegraphic Transfer fee paid to the conveyancing solicitor?

A.

Disbursements and fees should be identified on your quote. This cost is a fee not a disbursement. It should be included in the quote for your conveyancing.

Q.

We are intending to purchase a barn conversion in the parish of Westminster St John the Evangelist. Will a chancel search be important?

A.

The conveyancing solicitor could recommend a chancel search. In New Southgate's much older areas, chancel repair may be apportioned on current owners of a residence where Parochial Church Councils may have spared previous owners or tenants, so it can be difficult to use this as a guide.

Q.

When we are buying a New Southgate residence close to a rectory, should I get a chancel search?

A.

Chancel liability can require some home owners to fund repairs to specific local church buildings. Some names or words such as 'vicarage' give an indication of a property's history, and thus whether chancel liability may apply. New Southgate ecclesiastical properties include The Parish of St. Paul.

Q.

What kind of analysis in respect to the risk and history of flooding to properties in Enfield will the property lawyer in New Southgate give details on an Edwardian property we are buying?

A.

A conveyancing lawyer will conduct standard protocol environmental searches that should include New Southgate flood risk area data information. An inexpensive (around twenty pounds) and more detailed conveyancing search (e.g. Landmark) will sometimes be suggested by a qualified New Southgate conveyancer if the results of the environmental search identify flood risk to the property. At the time of writing (25-Dec-12) there were no warnings around the Pymmes Brook at East Barnet at the The Lower Lee Tributaries, including the Nazeing Brook, Ching Brook, Cobbins Brook, Pymmes Brook, Rags Brook, Salmons Brook, Turkey Brook, Trinity Marsh Ditch and the Small River Lee

Q.

Conveyancing searches (environmental) may be standard procedure for home buyers but when one considers current events for example the fact that last year was second wettest year since records began are they the best way to report enough about the New Southgate flood risk area?

A.

A lawyer in New Southgate will get flood searches if the initial conveyancing searches spots a any kind of risk.

For added assurance you can always contact a neighbour of the property.

Q.

Do I need to choose the conveyancing suggested by my estate agent?

A.

If you choose a conveyancer referred through this route, you may have the advantage of the agent being able to exert pressure on a solicitor to wrap up the process as soon as possible. If the agent is paid a referral fee, however, an agent may decide to recommend the solicitor willing to pay the highest referral fee, not the most suitable for you.
