Q.

How do we find the cheapest conveyancing solicitors?

A.

Numerous solicitors claim to offer theoretically cheap conveyancing quotes, but additional charges are often hiding in the terms and conditions. A quote for conveyancing in North Finchley should state the disbursements to be paid. Additional costs ought to be reasonable. They only apply in cases where your lawyer is required to complete extra work on your behalf, which could not be anticipated at the start of the process. Homeward Legal quotes are not estimates, and offer a clear statement of your legal fees for a standard conveyancing transaction.

Q.

Is it recommended that we get a chancel liability search? We are purchasing a home in North Finchley.

A.

In North Finchley, where land was once owned by a lay rectors, new owners of that property may be obliged to fund maintenance of a local church. Parochial Church Councils in North Finchley must register their interest over property by October 2013, simplifying the chancel search process. A conveyancing lawyer will be able to advise further. Churches in the local area where a chancel search may be necessary include Christ Church.

Q.

If we plan to purchase near North Finchley, in the parish of Pinner, do we need a chancel search?

Whichever North Finchley parish in which you are purchasing, a solicitor may suggest a chancel search. Although some church councils have chosen to impose chancel repairs on the current owners, there is no way to be certain that a parish where repair costs have not been paid before will continue to be free from liability, so indemnity insurance may be advisable even if liability is unlikely.

Why does sale conveyancing work take weeks to complete?

A.
