Your lawyer will have no control over the level of the charges for this information but the average costs for the information for Kingsbury leasehold premises is £350.

The landlord or their agents are under no legal obligation to answer such questions most will be willing to do so - albeit often at exorbitant prices where the fees bear little relation to the work involved.

What is the distinction between surveying and conveyancing in Kingsbury?

Conveyancing - in Kingsbury or elsewhere - is the legal term given to transferring legal title of property from one person to another. It therefore includes the checking of the title. Whether buying or selling, you should be aware of anything affecting the property such as proposals by government departments, illegal buildings, or outstanding rates. The conveyancer should conduct the appropriate searches and inquiries on the property. Surveying relates to the structure of a property itself. A surveyor will look at a house, flat and any outbuildings you’re buying and will help you find out about the condition of the building and, if there are problems, give you a powerful reason for reducing the price down or asking the vendor to fix the defects before you move in.
