I need the cheapest conveyancing solicitors in Lewisham, we are on a tight budget.


The confusion over this matter catches out many buyers and sellers, and can leave them paying far more in fees than they budgeted, and many conveyancers advertise cheap conveyancing quotes. However extra fees will be included in the solicitor's terms of engagement. Any fees found in the terms should be fair and reasonable. Your conveyancing quote should state any disbursements to be paid.


Does your solicitors company get involved in the conveyancing of property auction properties in Lewisham?


Yes - Homeward Legal is very competent with buyers and sellers at auction. Regularly unusually constructed properties are included at property auctions and these need more review before completing. We therefore strongly encourage bidders to formally appoint a SRA regulated lawyer prior to the date of the auction to allow enough time for a full investigation of the legal documents.

Post auction your instructed lawyer will be prepared for finishing the legal work in the usual 28 days as required by the auction conditions.


If my family are buying in Lewisham on the same street as rectory land, is it important that I get a chancel search?

In Lewisham, some owners can be required to fund upkeep of a medieval church. A number of sources are used to identify liability, including parish archives. Church of England properties in the local area where chancel liability may apply include St Mary the Virgin and St Stephen.


What do fixtures and fittings mean?


Mainly, fixtures are permanently fixed to the property and cannot be easily removed and fixtures are free-standing items, such as chairs. Completion or agreement of a fixtures and fittings form is unfortunately often left to the last minute, when a dispute may jeopordise the transaction, and this can make the clarification of any difference of opinion so important.


What type of exploration concerning the risk and history of a flood in the South East London area will a Lewisham conveyancing solicitor check?


An experienced property conveyancing lawyer applies for standard protocol property conveyancing searches that will include Lewisham area flood risk information. Also as an additional measure your lawyer in Lewisham might suggest an inexpensive additional local Lewisham search.


How do I verify if a property is in a conservation area?


With over 9,000 conservation areas throughout the country, the local areas in or near Lewisham will include several areas of architectural merit designated as protected. Conservation areas in Lewisham include Deptford High Street. The local council will be able to advise further about local conservation areas, and the solicitor handling your purchase should discuss what specific restrictions are in place.
