Q.

What do you charge for the legal fees on a £688k house? We need affordable conveyancing in Northwick Park.

A.

Both high-street and online firms advertise so-called 'the cheapest conveyancing quotes'. Often additional fees are often hiding in small print which unwary homeowners fail to check. Applicable disbursements must also be stated on a quote Additional fees should be reasonable and clear. They only be applied if the solicitor must perform additional tasks in your interest, which could not be anticipated at the start of the process. Our quotes are not estimates, stating all the solicitors fees you will pay for a standard sale or purchase.

Q.

Will the Northwick Park lawyer get any searches on the London period terraced cottage I am buying?

A.

If buying and taking out a mortgage a mortgage lender mandates at least a specified set of searches, including the following Local Authority Search, Drainage and Water Search (CON29DW) and Environmental, and, depending on certain criteria, less common searches, which may include a Utilities report.

Q.

At what point do we need to instruct a solicitor in Northwick Park?

With a firm offering a 'no move, no fee' conveyancing quote, instructing as early as possible is better. Instructing your solicitor sooner can reduce any chance of the transaction aborting.

Q.

How much is the council tax on a Sixties detached home in Northwick Park?

A.

Frequently a conveyancing report on title should give information the appropriate Brent council tax band. Up-to-date rates for residents of Northwick Park are set out in detail online at the Brent council website. As at (20 October 2012) the rates are:

  • Band A - £910.00
  • Band B - £1,062.00
  • Band C - £1,214.00
  • Band D - £1,366.00
  • Band E - £1,669.00
  • Band F - £1,973.00
  • Band G - £2,276.00
  • Band H - £2,731.00

Q.

Would arranging a house survey be required if we are buying a home?

A.

It is suggested that all purchasers instruct a surveyor to perform a survey. A wide range of defects have a negative impact on a property, including flat roof leaks and cracked roof tiles, and issues such as these are not likely to be investigated as part of the conveyancing itself.

Q.

We plan to buy a converted chapel in the parish of St Marylebone Holy Trinity. Are we advised to get a chancel search?

A.

Regardless of the Northwick Park parish in which you are purchasing, the conveyancing solicitor may suggest that a chancel search be taken out. In Northwick Park's much older areas, chancel repair can be imposed on the owners of a house where Parochial Church Councils may have not done so in the past. It is not safe to rely on the historical behaviour of the parish council alone as a guide.

Q.

We are buying on a Northwick Park former industrial site. Is the soil possibly contaminated?

A.

Northwick Park industry and natural causes can cause topsoil contamination. Metal contamination of topsoil in Northwick Park is more likely to occur near landfill sites. Data on other contaminants, like asbestos, will also be included in an environmental search.

Q.

Which local authority is responsible for Northwick Park?

A.

Northwick Park is located in London Borough of Brent Council, One Stop Service, Town Hall, Forty Lane, Wembley, HA9 9HD, contact: 38 8937 1200
