Q.

I am intending to purchase a barn conversion in the parish of Stoke Newington. Will a chancel search be appropriate?

A.

A conveyancing solicitor may suggest a chancel search. Through some Parochial Church Councils have chosen to charge chancel repairs on the owners of affected property, there is no way to be certain that a parish in which lay rectors have not been expected to pay chancel repair dues recently will not be so in future. It is not safe to rely on the historical behaviour of the parish council alone as a guide.

Q.

Is contaminated land in Southgate a problem?

Q.

What amount of time should be planned for the legal work to buy a property take?

A.

The number of weeks needed to sell or purchase a house is not wholly predictable, with reference to a handful of issues affecting the property, such as if the lender requires specific searches. Nationwide, the average is around ten weeks, we however aim for faster conveyancing, driving the transaction to complete within 6 to 8 weeks.

Q.

Does your solicitors company do auction conveyancing in Southgate?

A.

Homeward Legal is used to working with residential property auction conveyancing. Very often hard to value buildings such as un-mortgageable properties are listed in auctions which tend to demand extended investigation by the conveyancing lawyer. Lawyers therefore advocate that buyers formally appoint a local property conveyancing lawyer well before the auction day to allow enough time for a detailed investigation.

Following the auction day, your lawyer needs to be geared up to speedily get through the purchase legal work in the 4 week time frame, a requirement of terms and conditions of sale.
