Would acquiring a Homebuyer Report be sensible if we are purchasing residential property in Chessington?


The Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors firmly suggest that property purchasers arrange a surveyor. It is a fact that there are a wide range of issues which will impact a property, that will not be addressed during the conveyancing process, such as corrosion of pipework.


What kind of fact finding regarding the potential risk of a flood in the Kingston upon Thames area will a lawyer in Chessington look over on a Victorian property we are going to purchase?


An experienced conveyancer conducts standard protocol conveyancing and environmental searches, which include Chessington area flood risk data. At the time of writing publication on the Environment Agency website do not list any flood warnings in Chessington.


Are Chessington any conservation areas going to constrain us?


With around 9,000 conservation areas throughout the country, the neighbourhoods located near Chessington will include numerous areas of 'special architectural and historic interest' recognised as protected. Your solicitor will be able to offer more information.


Will I need a chancel search? I am purchasing a house in Chessington.


Some owners in Chessington can be required to contribute towards repairs to older church buildings. Insurance may be available to protect a buyer should a Chessington Parochial Church Council enforce liability. Churches in the local area include Hook and St Mary the Virgin.


Does Homeward Legal get involved in the conveyancing of auction properties in Chessington?


We are used to working with property auction procedures. It is not uncommon for hard to value properties like development properties, are included at property auctions which tend to require additional fact-finding before completion. Conveyancers therefore strongly advocate bidders to formally instruct a lawyer before the property auction date to allow for a review.

Post auction day the lawyer is totally focused on concluding the legal side of things inside 4 weeks as typically required .


How do I bypass paying out for stamp duty?


Stamp Duty Land Tax is due on property over 125,000 pounds. Homeward Legal strongly advise against any stamp duty reduction, as such schemes are highly expensive and very risky. There have been a small number of government-sponsored schemes, such as relief for buyers in 'disadvantaged areas'. You will be able to confirm your eligibility for any such active initiatives with your solicitor..


I am purchasing a home in Northolt. Is a chancel search necessary?


Whether you are buying a property in Chessington or elsewhere in the county, the solicitor may suggest that a chancel search be ordered. Although some Parochial Church Councils have determined to charge chancel repairs on the current owners of affected property, there is no way to be certain that a parish where repair costs have not been paid before, that this will not automatically be the case for future owners. Even if liability is unlikely, indemnity insurance is a sensible precaution.
