We are trying to find an affordable conveyancing estimate. What do I need to check for?


Many conveyancers purport to offer so-called 'the cheapest conveyancing', but extra costs will be included in the solicitor's terms. This small print is often not read by sellers and buyers in a hurry. Our quotes clearly state the solicitors' fees for a standard conveyancing transaction.


What are fixtures and fittings?


Commonly, fixtures are permanently fixed to the property, whereas fixtures are free-standing. The fixtures and fittings form is intended to avoid confusion, saving heartache once the sale is completed.


May the conveyancing quote include any hidden costs?


We do not hide any extra, hidden charges. Some solicitor do not give accurate quotes, only estimates, meaning that you could pay much more when you complete.


Environmental searches are all well and good but when one considers recent events such as the terrible flooding in the UK in April 2012 are they comfort enough to determine enough about the Greenwich risk of flooding?

Property environmental searches handled by your Greenwich property lawyer will include a far more specialist search (Landmark) if the risk is deemed significant.

If you remain still concerned try to get in touch with a next door neighbour.


Will I need to get searches for chancel liability if you are buying in Greenwich?


As a result of chancel repair liability, the owners of property in Greenwich which was once owned by a 'lay rectors' can be liable for maintenance of a church in the area. A chancel search is used to check that such a liability exists. The solicitor handling your conveyancing will be able to advise as to whether a chancel search is necessary. Ecclesiastical properties in the area where chancel liability may apply include Chapel of St Peter and St Paul, at the Old Royal Naval College, East , Christ Church, St Alfege and Westcombe Park, St George.


We are buying on a newly development ex-industrial site. Could the top-soil be contaminated by industrial waste?


Measures are taken throughout Greenwich to identify and resolve topsoil contamination. Environment search results will factor contaminants, including metals and others such as hazardous gases.


I want to exchange on the sale of a house quickly, are you a fast solicitor in Greenwich ?

We are going to buy a converted building in a designated Greenwich conservation area. How do I lay my hands on details in relation to the standard of repair?


English Heritage, a government body, have assembled records about the condition of conservation areas in addition to the trend. Local conservation areas are created by Greenwich who preside over things like public spaces to the deterrence of derelict buildings.
