We are trying to find a fixed rate conveyancing quote. What is included?


This matter catches out many property buyers and sellers, and can leave them paying far more in conveyancing fees than they budgeted. Many solicitors advertise supposedly 'the cheapest conveyancing'. Often extra costs may be added into small print. Any charges needs to be reasonable and be applied only where your solicitor must perform additional tasks on your behalf, which could not be anticipated at the start of the process. Homeward Legal quotes offer a clear statement of your legal fees for a standard conveyancing transaction.


Will the Catford conveyancing solicitor conduct any searches on the London Edwardian mid terrace building I want to buy?


If you are obtaining a mortgage the lender expects at least these searches - Local Authority, Drainage Search (Con29DW) and Environment Search as well as any area-specific searches for example Official Search of whole with priority.


In a few months we are expecting to be moving from our semi detached house near Catford to our new flat in Brockley , what is the right point to select a home removal firm?

We tend to advise that home buyers and sellers delay organising removals until after exchange of contracts as usually an actual moving date will not have been set. Frequently house removals firms may charge a late cancellation amount . Local information can be sought from Man & Van Catford, 245 Brownhill Rd, London, SE6 1AE Tel: 020 3616 0161 or Man & Van, 198 Inchmery Rd, London, SE6 1DF Call: 020 3616 0253.


For a residential property valued at £1.053mil. How is SDLT worked out?


The Stamp Duty rate owed will rely on the value of the house or flat. For a house or flat sold for £1.053mil, the rate will be £52650.*

What are the pitfalls if we buy a home located inside a Lewisham council designated conservation area ?


Part of the conveyancing process includes the making of enquiries of Lewisham council to confirm conservation area status and the existence of consent for any changes. If no appropriate consents can be provided, your solicitor will inform you of the alternatives for example obtaining an indemnity insurance or seeking retrospective permission from Lewisham local authority.


We are planning to buy in Catford. Can I establish whether the building is in a conservation area?


Locales deemed to be of architectural merit, such as model housing estates, will be recognised as conservation areas. A solicitor will discuss the relevant responsibilities you would be taking on by purchasing in a conservation area for affected areas in Catford.


Is the SDLT fee a fee or a disbursement?


It is not always clear whether an itemised charge is a disbursement or fee. This charge is a fee not a disbursement, and should be included in your conveyancing quote.


Should we employ a solicitors firm used by the estate agent in Beacontree Heath?


It is not uncommon for agents in Beacontree Heath to recommend a conveyancing firm. Such referrals should be compared to other online or local firms, as an agent may choose the conveyancer who pays out the highest referral fee, not a firm with local expertise and a solid reputation.
