Q.

How do I get fixed rate conveyancing?

A.

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.

Q.

With a leasehold flat ready to buy, and no chain, can we guarantee a fast completion in Oakhill?

A.

The key to moving faster is to use a proactive solicitor. Ask these questions when identifying your conveyancer:

  • Do they use email?
  • Do they offer 'instant' online quotes?
  • Are they 'no move, no fee'? This can incentivise a faster transaction.

Q.

Should we employ a property lawyer used by our agent?

A.

Agent recommendations are a common practice path for purchasers to get a solicitor. Such referrals should be compared against alternatives, as it may be the case that the agent recommends the conveyancer who pays out the highest referral fee, not the most appropriate choice.

Q.

What are the issues if we acquire a Oakhill building located inside a Waltham Forest council designated conservation area ?

A.

Part of conveyancing involves carrying out searches of the local authority to see conservation area status and consent for any modifications. Searches are charged at cost to the purchaser. In the absence of any consents the solicitor will give you professional advice on the best alternatives, which include seeking from the appropriate local authority or buying an indemnity policy.

Q.

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?

A.

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.

Q.

What does 'fixtures and fittings' relate to?

A.

Chiefly, there is not a absolute definition of 'fixtures and fittings'. Conveyancing solicitors recommend a formal fixtures and fittings form to avoid later disagreements and will confirm which items are included in the sale.

Q.

How much time should the conveyancing process usually take? We are buying in Oakhill.

A.

The time required to transfer a house does vary, with reference to several considerations including whether a mortgage lender requires particular searches. With Homeward Legal, your transaction is undertaken as quickly as possible.

Q.

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

A.

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.
