Q.

How do we get the cheapest conveyancing solicitors?

A.

Many property lawyers purport to offer cheap conveyancing, but additional fees will be included in the small print which unwary homeowners fail to check. Charges included in your solicitor's terms needs to be fair and clearly defined. Our online quote calculator will generate an accurate quote for your transaction.

Q.

Is contaminated land in Southgate a problem?

A.

Residential property in Southgate may have been contaminated by numerous factors caused by man and by nature, and an environmental search will confirm that a property can be impacted by contaminants including waste treatment sites in the area or existing and proposed overhead electricity cables.

Q.

We are buying in Southgate on a new-build brownfield site. Can the topsoil still be contaminated?

A.

Restrictions exist to prevent future topsoil contamination, some contaminants, however, can impact the local environment years after exposure. Data on many contaminants, such as radioactive waste, will be included in an environmental search.

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.

How much will charges for the conveyancing searches total?

A.

Conveyancing searches ranges in cost. Other informative searches include a tin mining search.

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.

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.

Q.

My wife and I are purchasing a residence in Southgate. How do I check that the residence is in a conservation area?

A.

Conservation areas pinpoint streets and neighbourhoods of historical or architectural value. Your property solicitor will offer more information and address the impact buying in a conservation area may have.
