Q.

How do we get a discount conveyancing estimate?

A.

The confusion over this point catches out many buyers and sellers, and can leave them paying far more in conveyancing fees than they budgeted. Many firms advertise cheap conveyancing. Unfortunately additional costs may be added into the solicitor's terms of engagement. Our quotes clearly state all legal fees for a standard conveyancing transaction.

Q.

In 1 month we are expecting to be moving out of our semi detached home in Temple Fortune into a house in North Finchley at what stage to book a home removal company?

A.

We will advise that you put off until contracts have exchanged as in advance of this usually an absolute home moving date will not have been set.

Local removals companies include Friendly Van, 40 Eastside Rd, London, NW11 0BA on 020 3239 5230.

Q.

Do we need a house surveyor to check for issues affecting the property we plan to buy?

A.

Homeward Legal strongly advise that you arrange a house surveyor. It is a fact that there are a range of concerns that affect a property, which include poor drainage and flat roof leaks, and issues such as these are not likely to be investigated as part of the conveyancing itself.

Q.

If I plan to buy near Temple Fortune, in the parish of Enfield St James, do we need a chancel search?

A.

Whichever Temple Fortune parish you are purchasing in, a conveyancing lawyer is likely to recommend a chancel search. Through some Parochial Church Councils have determined to impose chancel repairs on the current owners of affected property, it cannot be guaranteed that a parish which has not been subject to chancel liability in the past will not automatically be the case for future owners.

Q.

We are buying on a brownfield land. What should we do regarding iron soil contamination?

A.

Measures are taken on a national level to identify and resolve soil contamination. Environment search results will factor contaminants, including metals and others such as groundwater contaminants like detergents and fertilisers.

Q.

What enquiries about the risk of a flood in the Barnet area will the lawyer in Temple Fortune check out?

A.

A vital component in the legal due diligence process involves your solicitor making an application for conveyancing searches (environmental) that give certain details about the potential Temple Fortune flood risk area. In certain cases a conveyancing solicitor in Temple Fortune might possibly advocate an inexpensive (around twenty pounds) and more detailed search. The most recent (25/02/13) publication on the Environment Agency do not list any active flood warnings in Temple Fortune.

Q.

As a result of the fact that last year was second wettest year since on record I am concerned that environmental searches aren't sufficient?

A.

An experienced Temple Fortune conveyancer should apply for food risk searches if the first conveyancing searches spots a any kind of local Temple Fortune flood risk.

For added peace of mind it may be prudent to speak to a neighbour of the property.

Q.

How long may the conveyancing process often need, in your opinion? The house being transacted is also in the area.

A.

The time taken to sell or purchase a house can vary. This wide range results from a handful of issues affecting the property which can include when 3rd parties fail to promptly answer queries. Our solicitors ensure your move receives fast and efficient service.
