How do I get fixed rate conveyancing?


Many solicitors claim to offer cheap conveyancing quotes. However additional charges are often hiding in the terms. Extras which are listed in the terms ought to be reasonable.


My husband and I are buying in Oakhill. How do I find out if the building is in a conservation area?


Conservation areas detail local areas of special architectural or historic interest. A solicitor will discuss the relevant responsibilities you would be taking on by purchasing in a conservation area and provide more details for conservation areas in Oakhill.


What are Oakhill's searches?


These searches are a typical bundle of queries ordered by the buyer's conveyancer, and will only cover the legal condition of the property's title.


What enquiries regarding the risk and history of a flood in Waltham Forest will a property solicitor in Oakhill look into?

A necessary step in the conveyancing protocol of purchasing a property involves a conveyancer carrying out environmental searches that set out specific information with respect to Oakhill flood risk area data. As an additional measure, a Oakhill property solicitor may advise a substantially more specialist local Oakhill flood risk search.


Is there a government body any thorough free record on the Oakhill conservation areas?


Conservation area matters including what can be demolished or advertising hoardings are handled by the local authority (Waltham Forest).

English Heritage, a government body, maintain details about the state of repair of conservation areas along with the vulnerability of the area.


If I am buying near Oakhill, in the parish of St Pancras, do we need a chancel search?


A property solicitor is likely to recommend a chancel search. In older areas of Oakhill, chancel repair may be apportioned on the current owners of a home where parish councils have not imposed the same liability on the last owners.


If you are purchasing a Oakhill residence on the same street as land owned by the church, is it necessary that I get a chancel search?


In Oakhill, where land was once owned by a lay rectors, new owners of that property may be obliged to contribute towards the cost of maintenance of a medieval church. Some names or words such as 'glebe' give an indication of a property's history, and thus whether chancel liability may apply. Churches in Oakhill where a chancel search may be appropriate include All Saints.


As a result of the major flooding in the UK in April 2012 I am apprehensive that conveyancing and environmental searches won't be sufficient?


A thorough Oakhill conveyancing solicitor will advise you to also get environmental searches if the environmental searches determine a Oakhill flood risk.

For greater peace of mind you could contact a next door neighbour.
