Can you confirm your cheapest fee for a £680k property? We are looking for an affordable conveyancing quote.


This matter catches out many homeowners, and can leave them paying far more in conveyancing fees than they budgeted. Many solicitors claim to offer cheap conveyancing, but extra fees may inflate the final bill.


What is the council tax on a Forties converted Band H property in Albany Park?


You will be given detail on your new property's band in the report on title. The latest tax rates for Albany Park are listed on the Bexley local authority site. At the time of writing, 29 January 2013, band rates are:

  • Band A - £957.00
  • Band B - £1,116.00
  • Band C - £1,276.00

  • Band E - £1,754.00
  • Band F - £2,073.00
  • Band G - £2,392.00
  • Band H - £2,871.00


Would it be insensible to enact the conveyancing myself on my own.

Technically there is no argument at all why you shouldn't undertake the your own conveyancing without assistance. However, a conveyancing solicitor takes care of a significant number of tasks e.g. checking redemption statements and locating planning docs some of which require adequate training.


I've had a conveyancing quote from you. Will there be any hidden costs?


We will never charge any hidden extra fees. Your quote is an single, accurate fee the legal costs for your move.


Will the Albany Park solicitor carry out any conveyancing searches on the London Regency detached home we are buying?


If you are obtaining a mortgage the building society of bank will expect a solicitor to get at least these searches - Local Authority, Drainage and Water Search and Environment Search and occasionally area-specific searches such as Chancel Check.


What kind of enquiries in relation to the uncertain risk of local flooding around Bexley will the Albany Park lawyer look into?


An essential step in the legal due diligence procedure of purchasing a property involves a solicitor conducting environmental searches that provide some details about the risk of flooding in Albany Park.


We are intending to purchase a medieval barn conversion in Teddington. Is a chancel search important?


Whether you are buying a residence in Albany Park or elsewhere in the county, the conveyancer is likely to recommend that a chancel search be taken out. In older areas of Albany Park, chancel repair dues can be collected on new owners of a residence where church councils have not imposed the same liability on the last owners. It is not safe to rely on the historical behaviour of the parish council alone as a guide.


Is a house survey necessary when buying any property?


Homeward Legal recommend that home buyers arrange a surveyor. There can be many defects that can affect a property, such as settlement. These will not be reported on by a solicitor.
