How do we get the cheapest Plumstead conveyancing quote?


Many online and high street conveyancers purport to offer so-called 'the cheapest conveyancing quotes'. Often additional charges are often hiding in the terms. This small print is often not read by home owners in a hurry. Any disbursements should also be included on a conveyancing quote.

What type of conveyancing searches into the risk of floods to properties in Greenwich will the conveyancing solicitor in Plumstead do for a buy to let home we are purchasing?


Your property solicitor conducts official environmental searches that incorporate Plumstead flood risk area data. As an additional measure, a conveyancer in Plumstead will sometimes advise an inexpensive (around twenty pounds) and more search. At the time of writing (05-Dec-08) there were no warnings around the Tidal Thames from Erith High Street East to Woolwich Arsenal at the River Thames including areas in the boroughs of Bexley and Greenwich


When in the process do you need to instruct a solicitor?


Generally, as soon as possible, as there are a number of tasks which may be carried out immediately. Instructing your solicitor earlier can reduce any chance of the sale or purchase aborting.


Do we need a chancel search if we are buying in the parish of Hanworth, near Plumstead?


Whichever Plumstead parish in which you are purchasing, a conveyancer might recommend a chancel search. Although some Parochial Church Councils have opted to charge chancel repairs on current owners of affected property, a solicitor cannot state with certainty that a parish which has not been subject to chancel liability in the past will continue to be free from liability. In the event that chancel liability may apply, your solicitor might recommend insurance rather than pulling out of the purchase.


May our conveyancing quote have any hidden costs?


We never hide any additional charges to buy or sell a home.


Does your company handle the conveyancing of auction properties in Plumstead?


We are highly experienced with bidders at auction. Regularly hard to value houses like properties requiring improvement, are bought in property auctions and these need further due diligence. We therefore suggest buyers to formally instruct a conveyancing lawyer well before the property auction date to allow adequate time for a detailed report.

After the property auction, a property lawyer must be geared up to carry out the auction conveyancing process in under 28 days as conventionally required by the terms and conditions of sale.


What is the council tax on a period converted property in Plumstead?


More often than not the conveyancing report on title should give the relevant Greenwich council tax band. Correct rates for properties in Plumstead are detailed on the Greenwich council website. On, 09/08/2012, the different rates are:

  • Band A - £859.00
  • Band B - £1,002.00
  • Band C - £1,145.00
  • Band D - £1,288.00
  • Band E - £1,574.00
  • Band F - £1,860.00
  • Band G - £2,146.00
  • Band H - £2,576.00


How is stamp duty measured?


Stamp Duty is based on the house's value. On a £727k home, stamp duty will be £29080.
