Q.

How do we find the best rates for conveyancing in Balham for a £489,000 house?

A.

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.

Q.

How many weeks will it take my designated solicitor to handle the legal process on a flat in an Edwardian property in Balham?

A.

The process can take anywhere from one month to twelve weeks contingent on various factors, for example the efficiency of the seller's conveyancer, or whether your solicitor has to act for your lender.

Our chosen lawyers are exceptionally focused on pushing transactions through with the intention of completing the legal process as soon we can.

Q.

We are buying a converted chapel in the parish of Fulham St John. Will a chancel search be necessary?

A.

Whichever Balham parish in which you are purchasing, a conveyancer may suggest a chancel search. Through some Parochial Church Councils have exercised their right to charge chancel repairs on the current owners of affected property, there is no way to be certain that a parish in which lay rectors have not been expected to pay chancel repair dues recently will continue to be unaffected.

Q.

Does your company administer the conveyancing for auction properties in Balham?

A.

Our firm is highly experienced with property auction conveyancing. Frequently hard to value homes e. g. residential investments are sold in property auctions which tend to demand more investigation. We therefore suggest that bidders formally instruct a property lawyer in advance of the day of the auction to allow adequate time for an investigation. Immediately following the date of the auction your selected conveyancing solicitor is prepared for speedily completing the legal side of things in 28 days as typically required .
