On the purchase of a £796,000 house, what will be the fees? We are looking for affordable conveyancing.


Misleading conveyancing quotes catch out many sellers and buyers, leaving them to pay sometimes £100s more than planned. Many law firms advertise supposedly 'the cheapest conveyancing quotes'. Often additional charges may increase the final invoice. Feeswhich are listed in the terms needs to be reasonable.


Is it possible that some of the Southwark conservation areas are in poor condition?


The directory of the state of conservation areas is assessed by English Heritage and the following details are available at the English Heritage website- St Georges Circus marked as very bad with low vulnerability and condition improving.


Which environmental factors will impact land in Southwark, and are they checked for comprehensively?


Southwark property could be contaminated by a range of natural and human-influenced issues, like sand or clay quarries and other land contamination. An environmental search will reveal this in more detail.


What kind of due diligence in connection with the risk and history of a flood in South East London will a Southwark property solicitor report on for an Edwardian property I am purchasing?


An experienced residential property conveyancer conducts formal environmental searches that will include Southwark flood risk area information.


Is a Homebuyer Report a good idea when we are purchasing a property, irrespective of its condition?


It is heavily suggested that Southwark property purchasers order a house survey when you intend to buy in Southwark. Many defects will impact a property, for example poor ventilation, and issues such as these are not likely to be investigated as part of the conveyancing itself.


I am intending to buy in Southwark. Are there any areas of conservation?


With 9000 conservation areas throughout the country, the local areas around Southwark will include several areas of historic or architectural significance designated as protected. Conservation areas in Southwark include St Georges Circus. You may wish to contact the council for further information, but your conveyancing lawyer will investigate the impact of conservation areas or other planning restrictions.


Our estate agent has suggested a property lawyer. Do I need to use them?


Many estate agents will have referral deals with solicitors whereby they refer work. Such referrals must be carefully considered, as an agent may select the firm which pays to the largest referral fee, not the best value for you.


Are you set up to move quickly on residential property auction conveyancing in Southwark?


Yes - Our team put together legal documentation for vendors and regularly do the legal work for buyers at auction. It is sensible buyers at auction to select their chosen lawyer as early as possible to allow adequate time for a review of the lot prior to the auction day.
