Q.

How do I find a discount conveyancing estimate in Totteridge?

A.

Both high-street and online firms purport to offer supposedly cheap conveyancing. However extra fees are often hiding in the terms. A quote should list any disbursements.

Q.

We are buying a restored chapel in the parish of Upper Holloway St John. Is a chancel search necessary?

A.

Your solicitor might recommend a chancel search. Chancel repair can be imposed on new owners of a house where church councils have previously chosen not to do so, so it can be difficult to use this as a guide.

Q.

What sort of inquiry regarding the potential risk of flooding at Barnet will my Totteridge solicitor check?

A.

Your conveyancer will carry out environmental searches, which include Totteridge flood risk information. At the time of writing (06/01/13) publication on the UK Environment Agency do not list any active flood warnings in the Totteridge area.

Q.

Do I need searches for chancel liability? I am buying in Totteridge.

A.

Property owners in Totteridge may be subject to chancel repair liability. Parochial Church Councils in Totteridge must register their interest over property by October 2013, simplifying the chancel search process. Your conveyancing solicitor will suggest an appropriate indemnity policy to address chancel liability. Church properties in the local area where a chancel search may be appropriate include St Andrew.

Q.

How can we learn additional info on the standard of the conservation areas in Totteridge?

A.

Local Totteridge conservation areas like the historic layout of roads, removal of existing windows or street guard rails are police by the local Barnet planning authority. English Heritage administer details in relation to the condition of conservation areas along with the vulnerability to deterioration or improvement.

Q.

How is Totteridge contaminated land checked when purchasing a house?

A.

A wide range of contaminants can impact property in Totteridge. Issues such as sand or clay quarries will be investigated during the conveyancing process.

Q.

How many weeks may conveyancing usually need? If it matters, we are purchasing a home in Totteridge.

A.

For the majority of buyers and sellers, the amount of time taken to sell or purchase a house does vary, according to a broad set of legal considerations. These may include if the lender requires specific searches. For most firms in England and Wales, the average is between 8 to 12 weeks, we however work towards four to six weeks, wherever possible.

Q.

The Totteridge home being bought is on a ex-industrial use land. Could the top-soil be contaminated by industrial waste?

A.

Totteridge and the surrounding region has a legacy of chemical contamination. Land may also be contaminated by other sources, including perchlorate.
