Q.

How do I get the best conveyancing rates for a £218k property?

A.

Many firms claim to offer cheap conveyancing quotes. Often additional charges will be included in the solicitor's terms. Additional costs included in terms and conditions should be reasonable.

Q.

I am intending to purchase a church rectory in the parish of Buckland. Is a chancel search required?

A.

Your lawyer may suggest that a chancel search is taken out, regardless of the parish in which the property being purchased is located. Through some Parochial Church Councils have exercised their right to exact chancel repairs on the owners of affected property, a solicitor cannot state with certainty that a parish which has not imposed liability will not automatically be the case for future owners. For property in the parish of Buckland, it is not safe to rely on the historical behaviour of the parish council alone as a guide.

Q.

If we are purchasing a Shenley flat conversion on the same road as a church constructed in the 14th Century, do I need to get a chancel search?

A.

Property owners near to church property in the locality must contribute towards repairs, where chancel repair liability exists. Owners who have bought property prior to 2003 may be totally unaware that a liability exists if a

chancel search was not carried out. A solicitor will be able to advise as to whether a chancel search is necessary, and recommend suitable insurance. Shenley churches include St Martin.

Q.

I am buying in Shenley. How do I verify if the property is in a designated conservation area?

A.

These areas specify areas of special architectural or historic interest. The local council will be able to offer more information about local conservation areas, and the property solicitor handling your purchase address the impact buying in a conservation area may have.

Q.

Will the form for fixtures and fittings list items such as furniture?

A.

Chiefly, fixtures are fixed items, such as the boiler to walls, floors or ceilings securely, whereas fixtures are easier to detach or remove. Completion or agreement of a fixtures and fittings form is unfortunately often left to the last minute, when a dispute may jeopordise the transaction. This makes resolving any confusion between buyer and seller on this issue so urgent.

Q.

In about 6 weeks we are likely to be finally moving out of our semi detached property on the outskirts of Shenley to our new property in New Barnet . When to book a house removal firm?

A.

We would tend to encourage house movers wait until the point where exchange of contracts has occurred as usually an absolute move date wont have been formally agreed.

Local removals companies include Door 2 Door Services, 3 Blenheim Mews, Shenley, Radlett, WD7 9LL on 01923 850900.

Q.

How much is the council tax on a Thirties converted dwelling in Shenley?
