Q.

How do I find fixed rate conveyancing in Stamford Hill?

A.

The lack of clarity surrounding this topic catches out many buyers, and can leave them paying far more in conveyancing fees than they budgeted. Many solicitors advertise so-called 'the cheapest conveyancing quotes'. Often additional charges can increase the solicitor's invoice. The conveyancing quote should also state any disbursements. Any additional fees should be reasonable. Our quotes clearly state the solicitors' fees for a standard conveyancing transaction.

Q.

Where can we learn additional information about the conservation areas in Stamford Hill and Stamford Hill?

A.

English Heritage, a government body, have put together records in relation to the condition of conservation areas in England in addition to the risk of a decline in standards. Local conservation areas for example street furniture, removal of existing windows or ugly shop fronts etc. are dealt with by the local Hackney planning authority.

Q.

What type of due diligence in connection with the potential risk of a flood around Hackney will the conveyancer in Stamford Hill scrutinise?

An important step in the conveyancing procedure involves a solicitor making an application for environmental searches that offer details on the Stamford Hill flood risk area. Depending on the results, a Stamford Hill lawyer could advocate an inexpensive additional in-depth flood risk search. At the time of writing (05/01/13) publication on the Environment Agency don’t indicate any flood warnings in the Stamford Hill area.

Q.

What causes the sale conveyancing process in Stamford Hill to take such a long time?

A.

Conveyancing in Stamford Hill can be lengthy. We understand that these can cause considerable stress and seek to diminish the impact of these delays by pushing all parties involved. Reasons for delay can include slow third parties such as landlords or managing agents.

Q.

Should we get a chancel liability search? We are buying on the same road as a rectory built in the 1700s in Stamford Hill.

A.

Property owners near to nearby church property are expected to contribute towards repairs, as a result of chancel repair liability. Liability has the potential to impact the value of a property, but insurance is available should an obligation to fund repairs be enforced. Church of England properties in the area include St Bartholomew and St Thomas Clapton Common.

Q.

Fixtures and fittings refer to what exactly?

A.

Mainly, there is not a clear definition of 'fixtures and fittings'. Completion or agreement of a fixtures and fittings form is unfortunately often left to the last minute, when a dispute may jeopordise the transaction.

Q.

Would getting a property survey be advisable if we are buying a property?

A.

It is highly recommended that all buyers in Stamford Hill book a surveyor. Many concerns affect a property. These include corrosion of pipework. These will not be reported on by a solicitor.

Q.

How soon should you speak to a conveyancing solicitor?

A.

With a 'no move, no fee' guarantee, the faster you instruct the better, as conveyancing involves a number of tasks which may be performed straight away. Instructing a solicitor to handle your Stamford Hill conveyancing early could mitigate the chance of your purchase or sale stalling.
