I am trying to find a law firm that offers cheap conveyancing. How do I get a quote?


Numerous law firms advertise cheap conveyancing, but extra charges are frequently hidden in the solicitor's terms of engagement. Any charges included in terms of engagement should be fair. They be applicable if your solicitor must complete unanticipated additional work on your behalf, which could not be anticipated at the start of the process. Our quotes offer a clear statement of your solicitors fees for a standard purchase or sale.


We have to find especially fast Rayners Lane solicitors - is that your solicitors?


Many law firms may be apathetic creating a lot of misery to the house moving process.

Our conveyancing lawyers attempt to communicate through all parts of the buyer and seller chain and use leading edge land registry integrated technology to complete the sale without hitch.


What do we need to know if we acquire a Rayners Lane building located inside a Harrow local authority designated conservation area ?


Part of conveyancing for buyers involves the application for searches of Harrow local authority to verify conservation area status and the existence of permission for developments. Should no appropriate permissions be in evidence your solicitor will recommend the alternatives such as getting an indemnity insurance or getting retrospective approval from the appropriate local authority.


Will you need to get a chancel search? We are buying in Rayners Lane.


Chancel liability repair costs can run into £100,000s, which owners of affected property will be compelled to pay on demand to the Rayners Lane Church council. Liability has the potential to impact the value of a Rayners Lane property, but an indemnity policy may be available to protect the new owners. A solicitor will be able to advise as to whether a chancel search is necessary, and recommend suitable insurance.


As a consequence of the Met Office warning of more intense rainfall, I am asking whether conveyancing searches aren't thorough enough?


A good Rayners Lane property lawyer will advise you to get additional conveyancing searches (Landmark database search) if the initial conveyancing searches spots a Rayners Lane flood risk area

For more history you can always contact a close neighbour.


What precautions can I take to get out of paying stamp duty to HM Revenue?


Stamp Duty Land Tax (SDLT) commonly must be paid for property sold for over 125,000 pounds. We do not recommend home movers undertake any form of stamp duty mitigation scheme. These schemes are costly and can be very unlikely to succeed. There have been a range of government initiatives, however, such as relief for buyers in 'disadvantaged areas'.


We are intending to buy a 1920's house, is it significant that conveyancing searches are ordered?


These searches are common bundle of queries ordered by your solicitor. Searches are not a substitute for a survey.
