We need to find the cheapest conveyancing quote. and what is included?


This catches out many property buyers and sellers, and can leave them paying far more in fees than they budgeted, and many conveyancers claim to offer supposedly 'the cheapest conveyancing quotes'. Often additional charges will be included in the terms of engagement. Your Shortlands conveyancing quote ought to list the disbursements to be paid.Our quotes offer a clear statement of your solicitors fees for a standard purchase or sale.


Which local authority is responsible for Shortlands?


Shortlands is located in London Borough of Bromley Council, Civic Centre, Stockwell Close, Bromley, BR1 3UH, contact: 020 8464 3339


Can you confirm which Shortlands lenders your solicitors work with. Whose panels are you a member of?


The Homeward Legal group can work with all the major lenders providing financing to home purchasers in Shortlands. Local mortgage lenders and brokers include Simmonds Financial Services, Fox Cottage/Blacketts Rd, Tonge, Sittingbourne, ME9 9AS, and Phoenix Partnership, Po Box 415, Sittingbourne, ME9 9WX.


Is a house survey necessary if we are buying property in Shortlands?


It is strongly suggested that home buyers arrange a RICS survey. There can be a range of issues that have a negative impact on a property.

These can include wet rot or insect infestation, and these will not be addressed by your conveyancing solicitor.


For fast conveyancing to buy a £525,000 house, what do we need to get?


Many buyers will, correctly, argue that contacting a communicative conveyancing solicitor is essential to faster conveyancing. Furthermore, there are various jobs you, as the purchaser, could do, including, organising your finances, completing all forms as soon as possible and keeping in regular contact with your conveyancing solicitor.


I plan to purchase a converted chapel in Swanscombe. Is a chancel search specified?


The solicitor responsible for your move may suggest that a chancel search be taken out. Although some Parochial Church Councils (PCCs) have taken the decision to exact chancel repairs on the current owners, there is no guarantee that a parish where chancel repair fees have not been paid previously will continue to be free from liability. It is not safe to rely on the historical behaviour of the parish council alone as a guide.


There are a growing number useful publications giving details on how to do DIY conveyancing. Do I need to instruct a property lawyer in Shortlands for my home move?


It is possible to do the legal work unaided. The truth is however that a conveyancing solicitor takes care of a significant number of activities ranging from liaising with the insolvency office for k15 entries or checking for any restrictive covenants most of which need a qualified solicitor. Despite that solicitors practices are under a duty to carry insurance to insulate you from any failures on the part of the solicitor.


How can we check that a property is in a conservation area?


These areas categorise regions designated as being of special architectural or historic interest. These restrictions can add to maintenance costs, but the benefits include security that the surroundings are unlikely to change.
