Q.

Do it yourself conveyancing without the help of a Radlett conveyancer is becoming possible when buying and selling a home , however would it be a silly move ?

A.

Theoretically there are no reasons why a home seller cant go down that route and carry out the majority of the legal work unaided.

The truth is however that a property solicitor juggles a large array of functions including chasing outstanding papers or interpreting the lease some of which need a skilled professional.

Q.

How soon is it wise to find a conveyancer?

A.

The short answer is, earlier is preferable, as there are a number of tasks that can be performed straight away. Promptly instructing a firm can reduce any chance of the sale or purchase falling though.

Q.

We are selling in Radlett, and have had a quote from you. Could there be any additional costs?

A.

No. Our solicitors never hide any additional costs. Some conveyancers give 'quotes' which are in fact estimates, which could be totally different to your final invoice.

Q.

I am buying a renovated house in one of the conservation areas, where can I find more information in relation to the state of upkeep of the Radlett conservation area?

A.

Local conservation areas are designated by the local Hertsmere planning authority, who preserve conservation area concerns from what can be demolished to the avoidance of excessive road signs. English Heritage have put together information in relation to the state of conservation areas in addition to the vulnerability to a worsening of the condition of the area.

Q.

Will it be necessary to get a chancel search if we plan to purchase in the parish of St Ippolyts, near Radlett?

A.

Your conveyancing solicitor may suggest that a chancel search is taken out. In Radlett's much older areas, chancel repair may be apportioned on new owners of a home where church councils have not imposed the same liability on the last owners. It is not safe to rely on the historical behaviour of the parish council alone as a guide.
