What sort of fact finding in respect to the uncertain risk of floods in the North London area will my lawyer in St Margarets look into?


A crucial component in the legal due diligence procedure of buying a property involves your lawyer applying for property environmental searches that give you information in relation to risk of flooding in St Margarets.


What length of time can conveyancing to sell a home generally take, in your experience? If it matters, we are purchasing a home in St Margarets.

For the majority of property purchasers, the amount of time taken to transact a residence will vary. This is affected by a handful of issues affecting the property, for example, if the lender requires specific searches. The national average is 8 to 12 weeks, but we take a proactive approach, driving the sale or purchase to complete sooner.


Will the report on the property's title compiled by the St Margarets solicitor outline applicable rates of council tax for a Band B apartment prior to exchanging contracts?


The lawyer will speak to the appropriate council to ask about the up to date council tax rates, which will then be detailed in the conveyancing report on title. The latest council tax charges for residents of St Margarets are set out in detail at the council website.


I have read about the Met Office warning of more intense rainfall, I am worried that environmental searches won't be sufficient?


The St Margarets conveyancer should get property conveyancing searches (Landmark search) if the enviro search establishes a St Margarets area flood risk

People sometimes try to get in touch with a neighbour to get extra assurance if still concerned.


If I plan to purchase near St Margarets, in the parish of Hampton, do we need a chancel search?


Whether you are buying a property in St Margarets or elsewhere in the county, the conveyancing solicitor should confirm that a chancel search is taken out. Through some Parochial Church Councils have decided to exact chancel repairs on the current owners of lay rectorships, it cannot be guaranteed that a parish where dues have not recently been paid will not continue to be so. Even if liability is unlikely, indemnity insurance is a sensible precaution.


Will we need a house surveyor to check for defects affecting this property purchase?


Homeward Legal recommend that you arrange a surveyor to undertake a survey when you plan to buy in St Margarets. A wide range of defects can affect a property. These include subsidence, and issues such as these are not likely to be investigated as part of the conveyancing itself.
