How do we find affordable conveyancing in Grove Park?


This issue catches out many homeowners, and can leave them paying far more in fees than they budgeted. Many conveyancers promote 'the cheapest conveyancing quotes', but additional costs will be included in the small print that homeowners often do not check. Our online quote calculator will generate an accurate quote for your transaction.


Should we get a chancel search if I plan to purchase in the parish of Cowley?


Whether you are buying a property in Grove Park or elsewhere in the county, the conveyancing lawyer may suggest that a chancel search be taken out. Through some parish councils have opted to impose chancel repairs on the current owners of land subject to chancel liability, it is not possible to be certain that a parish in which lay rectors have not been expected to pay chancel repair dues recently will not be so in future. In the event that chancel liability may apply, your solicitor might recommend insurance rather than pulling out of the purchase.


How much will the searches on average cost?


Grove Park conveyancing searches ranges in cost, subject to the searches your lender requires. The most generally useful searches include a mining search and an environmental search.


Please suggest how to circumvent paying for stamp duty to the Revenue?


SDLT usually must be paid on purchases over one hundred and twenty-five thousand pounds. Homeward Legal firmly advise against any form of stamp duty scheme, because these schemes are often uneconomical and unreliable.


What is the council tax on a period terraced home in Grove Park?


In most cases a report on title should cover the appropriate Lewisham council tax band. The latest council tax rates for Grove Park are tabled on the Lewisham local authority website. At the time of writing (13 November 2012) band rates are:

  • Band A - £899.00

  • Band E - £1,649.00
  • Band F - £1,948.00
  • Band G - £2,248.00
  • Band H - £2,698.00


Can I verify if a residence is in one of Grove Park's areas of conservation?


With nine thousand areas of conservation across the country, the local areas in or near Grove Park include numerous areas of architectural merit recorded as protected. Grove Park itself is named as a conservation area. A conveyancing lawyer will discuss the relevant responsibilities you would be taking on by purchasing in a conservation area.


Is contaminated land an issue in Grove Park?
