now reducing the size of their 'solicitor panel', which may result in increased legal costs for property buyers. Homeward Legal can act for all large CML-approved lenders to keep legal costs to a minimum.

Will you need a chancel liability search? I am purchasing a property in South Harrow.

A.

Where land in South Harrow was once owned by a lay-rector, new owners of that property may be obliged to subsidise repairs to specific local church buildings. Some names or words such as 'priory' give an indication of a property's history, and thus whether chancel liability may apply. South Harrow church properties include St Paul.

Q.

What does the South Harrow conveyancing lawyer advise if the property we am buying is in a conservation area in Harrow which seems to have incongruous roof antenna installed?

A.

Harrow local authority LLC1 searches conducted by your South Harrow conveyancing solicitor during the conveyancing process should see whether the South Harrow property a designated conservation area and any evidence of authorisation for changes to the property will be required.

In the absence of any the necessary permissions, your conveyancing solicitor will inform you of all options, which include seeking from the appropriate local authority or an indemnity insurance policy.

Q.

We have had a quote from you. May there be any hidden charges?

A.

Unfortunately, it is common practice for some firms to hide fees in small print. We will not charge any extra, hidden costs. Sometimes your solicitor advises that another piece of work be carried out, . Any such fees would not be charged until you were made aware of the circumstances.
