What is your number one tip for finding a conveyancing solicitor in Harrow
We would encourage you not to go for the lowest Harrow conveyancing quote. You really do get what you pay for when it comes to property lawyers. A cheap quote may mean that the conveyancing solicitor is handling a lot of jobs at one time and you won’t get the quality of service and the attention that you need. It is, however, wise to use a conveyancer who has a fixed fee on a no sale, no fee basis. This way, you go into the conveyancing with your eyes wide open.
I am purchasing a victorian detached house in Harrow. The intention is to an extension at the rear at the property.Will the conveyancing process involve checks to ascertain if these alterations are allowed?
Your conveyancer should check the registered title as conveyancing in Harrow can sometimes reveal restrictions in the title documents which prevent categories of alterations or require the consent of another owner. Some works require local authority planning permissions and approval in accordance building regulations. Some areas are designated conservation areas and special planning restrictions apply which often prevent or impact extensions. You should check these things with a surveyor ahead of any purchase.
We had chosen solicitors located in Harrow on the Leeds Building Society solicitor panel. They are now charging me an additional fee for handling the Leeds Building Society mortgage. Is this a supplemental conveyancing fee specified by Leeds Building Society?
As unfair as it may appear, as long as it’s in their Terms of Engagement or estimate then yes your property lawyer is entitled to levy a fee for this. The charge is not set by Leeds Building Society but by your Harrow property lawyer. Numerous firms on the Leeds Building Society panel will quote ’dealing with mortgage’ fee but some firms incorporate it on their overall fee.
How does conveyancing in Harrow differ for newly converted properties?
Most buyers of new build residence in Harrow come to us having been asked by the housebuilder to sign contracts and commit to the purchase even before the premises is ready to move into. This is because developers in Harrow tend to buy the real estate, plan the estate and want to get the plots sold off as they are building the properties. Buyers, therefore, will have to exchange contracts without actually seeing the house they are buying. To reduce the chances of losing the property, buyers should instruct conveyancing solicitors as soon as the property is reserved and mortgage applications should be submitted quickly. Due to the fact that it could be several months and even years between exchange of contracts and completion, the mortgage offer may need to be extended. It would be wise to use a lawyer who specialises in new build conveyancing especially if they are used to new build conveyancing in Harrow or who has acted in the same development.
