How do we get a discount conveyancing estimate?


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.


What will contaminate land in Temple Fortune. Will they be checked for comprehensively?


Several contaminants caused by natural causes and human activities could lessen the value of property, and an environmental search should reveal if a house is affected by Temple Fortune contaminants including proposed erection of mobile masts.


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


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.


Are buyers often gazumped in Temple Fortune?


This describes when an offer is rejected, following initial acceptance, by the property owner, opting instead for a higher offer. There is almost always a danger of being gazumped. You should instruct a conveyancing solicitor as early as possible to reduce the chance of your transaction being gazumped.


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?


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.


Where do I learn more information on the standard of conservation areas in Temple Fortune?


Following a campaign, English Heritage have produced a list on the state of repair of conservation areas in Temple Fortune and across England along with the risk of deterioration.

Local conservation areas for instance paths and footpaths or poorly maintained public spaces etc. are governed by the local Barnet planning authority.


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


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.


What can I do to bypass paying out for stamp duty to the Revenue?


We firmly advise against any form of stamp duty mitigation, as such schemes are often uneconomical and , if the scheme fails, you may be charged a penalty of up to 100% of the stamp duty amount owed.
