What is your number one tip for choosing a conveyancing solicitor in Mill Hill
We would encourage you not to base your choice on the lowest Mill Hill conveyancing quote. You really do get what you’re paying 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.
My conveyancer has informed me that restrictive coveneant insurance is required on my purchase. What is the typical level of cover needed for conveyancing in Mill Hill?
The appropriate level of restrictive coveneant indemnity insurance should be dictated by who your lender. It would differ for example between HSBC Bank and Barnsley Building Society. Conveyancing solicitors as opposed to borrowers take out such insurances.
About to purchase maisonette in Mill Hill. I have received an online quote from a licenced conveyancer, which states: "There will be no charge for dealing with the Building Society if you are obtaining a mortgage". I take this to mean that there will be no additional fee if the solicitor is on the Aldermore conveyancing panel. I wanted to make sure it means there will be no additional fees for dealing with the mortgage.

Will my solicitor be asking questions about flooding during the conveyancing in Mill Hill.
Flooding is a growing risk for conveyancers carrying out conveyancing in Mill Hill. There are those who buy a property in Mill Hill, fully expectant that at some time, it may suffer from flooding. However, aside from the physical damage, if a house is at risk of flooding, it may be difficult to obtain a mortgage, satisfactory insurance cover, or dispose of the premises. Steps can be carried out as part of the conveyancing process to forewarn the purchaser.
Solicitors are not qualified to offer advice on flood risk, but there are a number of checks that may be initiated by the purchaser or on a buyer’s behalf which can figure out the risks in Mill Hill. The standard information sent to a buyer’s solicitor (where the Conveyancing Protocol is adopted) incorporates a usual question of the seller to determine if the premises has suffered from flooding. If flooding has previously occurred which is not revealed by the seller, then a purchaser may commence a legal claim for losses resulting from an incorrect answer. A purchaser’s conveyancers should also carry out an enviro report. This will higlight if there is a recorded flood risk. If so, more detailed investigations will need to be initiated.
