We need affordable conveyancing. and what is included?


Many law firms promote cheap conveyancing, however extra charges are frequently hidden in the terms and conditions. Additional charges found in your solicitor's terms should be clearly defined. Our online calculator will create an accurate quote for your buy.


What should I be aware of if buying a flat located inside a Lewisham planning authority conservation area ?


Part of the conveyancing process involves the making of enquiries of Lewisham planning authority to see conservation area status and the existence of permission for alterations. .

In the event that no appropriate permissions be provided, the solicitor will inform you of the alternatives which may include getting covered by an indemnity insurance policy or requesting retrospective permission.


Will the solicitor in Hither Green get any property conveyancing searches on the London Edwardian semi-detached townhouse I am intending to purchase?

If buying and applying for a mortgage lender will expect at least the following for properties in Hither Green: Local Authority (personal or official), Drainage Search and Environment Search and occasionally specific local searches, like a SIM Search.


Might it be realistic to do the DIY conveyancing on my own.


It is possible for you to carry out the your own conveyancing on your own. However, a conveyancing solicitor is in charge of a huge number of functions e.g. approving pre exchange checklists or identifying conservation area breaches some of which need a skilled professional. Furthermore legal firms are legally obligated to be covered by sufficient cover to shield you from any oversights.


What environmental concerns can affect land in Hither Green. Are they a problem?


Residential property in Hither Green could be contaminated by several natural causes, such as coal mining. An environmental search will offer more detail.


If we are intending to purchase in the parish of Littleton, should we order a chancel search?


The Hither Green conveyancing solicitor could advise that a chancel search is taken out. Chancel repair has the potential to be charged on new owners of a home where Parochial Church Councils (PCCs) have previously chosen not to do so. It is not safe to rely on the historical behaviour of the parish council alone as a guide.


How much is the council tax on a detached home in Hither Green?


As a rule the conveyancer's title report should provide the appropriate Lewisham council tax band. The correct rates for properties in Hither Green are listed on the Lewisham council site. At the time of writing, 23 June 2012, rates are as follows:
