How soon is it wise to speak to a solicitor in Epsom?


With a 'no move, no fee' guarantee, earlier is preferable. Some groups advocate postponing instruction until an offer has been firmly agreed, but opting to delay can jeopardise your sale or purchase.


Will the report on title prepared by the property lawyer in Epsom give information the cost of the council tax for a Band F property prior to completion?


A property solicitor will write to the local authority to ask about the most up to date council tax band and rates, which will be added to the title report. Up-to-date rates for properties in Epsom are detailed at the local authority site.


I f I read up on handling the legal work as a buyer and seller of a house - Is it practical to do the legal work on my own?


On paper there are absolutely no arguments why a seller should not undertake the greater majority of the legal process without assistance. In reality however, a lawyer in Epsom takes care of a huge array of assignments such as chasing missing documents and identifying conservation area breaches which really need a qualified professional.

Nevertheless solicitors practices are liable to be required to have the appropriate professional indemnity insurance to protect you in the event of failures.


How long will it take our conveyancing solicitor to finish all of the legal work for a semi detached building we hope to buy?


The conveyancing process can take anywhere between a month and 3 months, which can be affected by various issues, like the speed of the seller's conveyancer, or the speed of the local authority.


Which local authority is responsible for Epsom?


Epsom is located in Epsom & Ewell Borough Council, Town Hall, The Parade, Epson, Surrey KT18 5BY Tel: 01372 732 000


Will it be necessary to get a chancel search if we are purchasing in the parish of Streatham?


A Epsom conveyancing solicitor might recommend a chancel search, regardless of the parish where the residence being bought is found. In Epsom's much older areas, chancel repair may be imposed on the current owners of a residence where Parochial Church Councils (PCCs) may have not done so in the past. For property in the parish of Streatham, it is not safe to rely on the historical behaviour of the parish council alone as a guide.
