How do I get a cheap solicitor quote for selling a home?


Many firms advertise theoretically cheap conveyancing, however extra costs will be included in the solicitor's terms of engagement. Any extra fees ought to be clearly defined. They be applicable if the lawyer is required to complete unexpected extra work , which could not be anticipated at the start of the process. Our quotes clearly state all legal fees for a standard conveyancing transaction.


What are the pitfalls if we acquire a Charlton flat in a Greenwich council designated conservation area ?


An integral part of conveyancing for purchasers includes carrying out searches of Greenwich council to determine conservation area status and the appropriate permission for developments. .


In about 6 weeks we are likely to be finally moving from our terraced house in Charlton to a new property in Thamesmead , at what point to appoint a removals firm?


Your solicitor would tend to advocate that buyers put off until after exchange of contracts as in all probability the firm

date will not have been confirmed. Commonly firms add a change of date amount . Local removals companies include Greenwich Removals, Unit 6 Charlton Gate Business Park/Anchor & Hope La, London, SE7 7RX Tel: 07891 784565.


Is there a risk that we could be gazumped?


Gazumping happens when a house seller acknowledges a low offer, only to refuse it in favour of a better offer. Though gazumping is uncommon when property prices are falling, there is still a risk. You should instruct a law firm as early as possible to reduce the chance of gazumping.


I am buying a house with Britannia, what do we need to be aware of?


Over the last two years, some lenders have opted to reduce the size of their 'solicitor panel'. Homeward Legal, though, will act for many mortgage lenders, keeping buyers' legal costs to a minimum.


How long should I expect it to take our assigned solicitor to handle the legal process for the top floor of new build building we want to buy in Charlton?


The process can take anywhere from one month to 3 months, which can depend on various factors e.g. the efficiency of the vendor's property lawyer, or the speed of the local authority.

Our proactive property solicitors are notably proactive you moving home as rapidly as possible.


Does Homeward Legal carry out the conveyancing for auction properties in Charlton?


Our firm is familiar with property auction procedures. Quite often specialist properties for example building plots, are bought in auctions and these require increased review before committing. Homeward Legal therefore advise that buyers formally appoint a SRA regulated lawyer prior to the property auction to allow enough time for a thorough investigation of the legal papers. Following the auction your lawyer is prepared for concluding the transaction inside a month as required by the terms if sale.


We are purchasing a converted chapel in the parish of Fulham St Mary. Will a chancel search be necessary?


Whether you are buying a house in Charlton or elsewhere in the county, the conveyancing lawyer should confirm that a chancel search is ordered. In Charlton's much older areas, chancel repair may be apportioned on current owners of a house where Parochial Church Councils (PCCs) may have spared previous owners or tenants. Even if liability is unlikely, indemnity insurance is a sensible precaution.
