How do we get low cost conveyancing?


Lack of clarity over this topic catches out many buyers and sellers, and can leave them paying far more in fees than they budgeted, and many property lawyers offer cheap conveyancing quotes. However extra fees will be included in the terms and conditions which unwary buyers and sellers fail to check. Any fees ought to be fair and clearly defined and be applied only where your solicitor must complete additional work on your behalf, which could not be anticipated at the start of the process.

Can you recommend how we avoid paying SDLT rates?


We firmly advise against any stamp duty mitigation scheme. Such schemes are often uneconomical and , if the scheme fails, you may be charged a penalty of up to 100% of the stamp duty amount owed.


Will the Elmers End conveyancer conduct any searches on the London Sixties mid terrace home I am buying?


If buying and obtaining a mortgage the mortgage lender mandates at least specific searches, including the following Local Authority, Drainage Search and Environment Search and, depending on certain criteria, area-specific searches for instance Subsidence report.


Does get involved in auction conveyancing in Elmers End?


Yes - We are very capable working with auction buyers and sellers. Often specialist buildings for example those with expensive covenants, are included in auctions which tend to will want extra legwork by the conveyancing lawyer. Solicitors therefore suggest that buyers formally instruct a good lawyer well before the auction day to allow sufficient time for a full review of the lot.

Thereafter, following the date of the auction your chosen lawyer is completely geared up to completing the legal side of things within the limited time as required .


What are our options if we buy a semi detached house in a Bromley council conservation area ?


An integral part of the legal process involves the making of enquiries of the local authority to confirm conservation area status and the appropriate consent for any modifications. Should no appropriate permissions be produced the solicitor will advise you of all options for example obtaining an indemnity insurance policy or requesting retrospective consent from Bromley local authority.


What are Elmers End's searches?


Conveyancing searches are standard queries undertaken on behalf of the purchaser, including a local authority search. They cannot be used in place of a survey.


Does anybody hold any comprehensive free record about the Elmers End conservation areas?


Following a campaign, English Heritage have created records of the condition (poor to good) of conservation areas in England. Local conservation areas for example what can be developed, loft extensions or new developments etc. are handled by the local authority (Bromley).
