How do I get fixed rate conveyancing?


Confusion over this matter catches out many buyers, and can leave them paying far more in conveyancing fees than they budgeted, and many firms purport to offer theoretically 'the cheapest conveyancing quotes'. Unfortunately additional costs will be included in the terms of engagement which unwary buyers fail to check. Your Mitcham conveyancing quote should list third party costs, termed disbursements, to be paid.


Which local authority looks after Mitcham?


Mitcham is located in London Borough of Merton Council, Merton Civic Centre, London Road, Morden, Surrey, SM4 5DX, Call: 020 8274 4902


What is the council tax on a Fifties converted Band B building in Mitcham?


Commonly, a conveyancing report on title will provide the Merton council tax band. The latest tax charges for residents of Mitcham are listed at the Merton council site. At the time of authoring (15 October 2012) rates are:

  • Band A - £942.00
  • Band B - £1,099.00
  • Band C - £1,256.00
  • Band D - £1,413.00
  • Band E - £1,727.00
  • Band F - £2,041.00
  • Band G - £2,355.00
  • Band H - £2,827.00


When in the process should we find a conveyancer?


In the majority of situations, the earlier, the better, as there are a number of tasks which may be carried out straight away. Some authors suggest waiting before instruction until the offer is accepted, but delays can risk the other side pulling out, particularly in uncertain market conditions.


Should we get a chancel search if I plan to purchase in the parish of Exminster, near Mitcham?


Your property lawyer may suggest that a chancel search be taken out. Through some Parochial Church Councils have chosen to charge chancel repairs on the owners of land subject to chancel liability, a conveyancing solicitor cannot verify that a parish which has not imposed liability will not continue to be so, so it can be difficult to use this as a guide.


At what stage should I book the removal van?


Best advice is for buyers to wait before making arrangements with the removals until the point where you and the other side has formalised the final move date that occurs after contracts are signed.

What kind of investigation regarding the risk of a flood at Merton will the Mitcham conveyancing solicitor look over on a Sixties property we are going to purchase?

Also as an additional measure the property solicitor in Mitcham may recommend a more detailed in-depth search. At the time of writing (27/02/13) publication on the Environment Agency website do not reveal any flood warnings in Mitcham.
