The confusion over this issue catches out many buyers, and can leave them paying far more in conveyancing fees than they budgeted. Many conveyancers promote supposedly cheap conveyancing quotes. However extra fees will be included in the terms and conditions that buyers often do not check. Any additional fees listed in terms and conditions ought to be fair. They only apply in cases where the conveyancer is required to complete unexpected extra work for you, which could not be anticipated at the start of the process. Our quotes offer a clear statement of your solicitors fees for a standard purchase or sale.Q.
A key component in the legal procedure involves a conveyancer applying for property environmental searches that go into details about the potential Balham flood risk. A significantly more detailed flood history/risk search, such as the Landmark search, could possibly be suggested by the conveyancing solicitor in Balham if the results of the initial searches show that there is flood risk to the property. At the time of writing (06/01/13) reports on the Environment Agency flood reports website do not show any flood warnings in the Balham area.Q.
Part of the legal process includes carrying out searches of Wandsworth council to confirm conservation area status and the required consent for alterations. In the absence of any appropriate consents the solicitor will inform you of the alternatives which include getting from the appropriate local authority or purchasing an indemnity insurance policy.Q.

Liability has the potential to impact the value of a Balham property, but an indemnity policy may be available to protect the new owners.
