Juno are a team of licensed conveyancers who will help you when you want to buy or sell a house.
"We are delighted with Juno's services as a conveyancing solicitor for a property in the Brighton area. Positives: Clear and transparent quote - clearly detailing inclusions/exclusions, sticking to the quote religiously (meaning, no additional demands were made), completely online dealing - we had to physically deal with maybe 1-2 pages (!), very clear instructions in non-legal language, decent communication through the process (like chasing us up when our inputs were needed) and responding (mostly) promptly to our emails - overall the process ran extremely smoothly and efficiently, to the extent we were caught off-guard and had to move sooner than we were anticipating! Even the sellers estate agent appreciated how smooth the process was for them they said Juno was the best online solicitor they ever worked with!Things that could be better: The entire thing feels like a black box, in that we were hearing from 5-6 individuals through the process and you miss a bit of a human connection - potentially a catch-up call mid-way through the process would have been good. Overall, we are completely satisfied and recommend this company whole-heartedly!"

North London is home to some of the most affluent neighbourhoods in the United Kingdom. Here you can find the boroughs of Barnet, Camden, Enfield, Hackney, Haringey, and Islington. According to the UK House Price Index, 15,536 existing properties and 840 new builds were bought in these boroughs over the past year. In all boroughs, detached properties increased the most in price, rising by as much as 14.8%.
Instructing your conveyancer as soon as your offer is agreed upon will ensure that your process is more efficient. Here is what to expect from the conveyancing process:
Your conveyancer may have to carry out additional steps if you have a difficult case. This includes buying or selling a leasehold property.
Data taken from UK House Price Index
The average house price across the North London boroughs is £644,975. Our research showed that the average conveyancing fees when buying a property are £1,800 for freehold and £1,960 for leasehold. When selling a property, the average conveyancing fees are £1,720 for freehold and £1,880 for leasehold.
The conveyancing cost consists of legal fees, searches, and disbursements. You'll need to pay for a full local authority search. The average cost for this across the North London boroughs is £187 including VAT.
Factors such as the property location, and whether the property is freehold or leasehold can also play a big role in the final cost. This is because difficult cases can drive the cost up. Therefore, keep this in mind before you make an offer on a property.
Data taken from Compare My Move’s Moving House Calculator
In all London areas, the conveyancing process takes an average of 159 days to complete. The national average is also 159 days.
The buying and selling processes take approximately 297 days to complete in North London. This is 23 days longer than the national average which is 274 days. This is because it takes longer for offers to be accepted and for the property to be taken down.
If you are part of a property chain then you will need to make sure you instruct your conveyancer as soon as your offer is accepted. This is because you may also be selling a property as well as buying. Therefore, this will prevent delays.
Data taken from Get Agent
Conveyancing searches are an important part of the conveyancing process. This is because they look into any threats and risks that could cause damage to the property. Some searches include the Environmental Search and Water & Drainage Search.
North London has a high risk of surface flooding, so it is important to keep this in mind when looking at properties. Islington has the lowest flood risk of the North London boroughs. However, the North London boroughs are not near any rivers, so flooding from rivers or reservoirs should not be a concern.
Like the other regions in London, North London has subsidence issues. The conveyancing searches will be extremely important to ensure that your property is not affected.
North London has low radon gas levels as there is less than 1% exposure. This means that you shouldn't encounter any issues regarding this when purchasing the property.
