Q.

We are trying to find a cheap Bickley solicitor for buying a residence. What should I check?

A.

Misleading conveyancing quotes catch out many homeowners, leaving them to pay sometimes £100s more than planned. Many firms offer cheap conveyancing, but additional fees are frequently hidden in the solicitor's terms. Any extra fees included in terms of engagement should be reasonable. Third party costs, termed disbursements, to be paid should be included on any quote for conveyancing in BickleyOur quotes clearly state all legal fees for a standard conveyancing transaction.

Q.

What kind of fact finding about the potential risk of possible flooding in Bromley will my property lawyer in Bickley check on a residential house I am wanting to purchase?

A qualified lawyer will carry out standard protocol environmental searches, which include Bickley flood risk data. At the time of writing (03/01/13) reports on the Environment Agency flood reports website do not list any flood warnings in Bickley.

Q.

If I plan to purchase near Bickley, in the parish of St Sepulchre, do we need a chancel search?

A.

Regardless of the Bickley parish in which you are buying, the conveyancing solicitor is likely to recommend that a chancel search is ordered. Chancel repair has the potential to be imposed on the owners of a property where parish councils may have not done so in the past.

Q.

When in the conveyancing process do we need to speak to a solicitor in Bickley?

A.

With a 'no move, no fee' guarantee, instructing as early as possible is better. Some groups advocate postponing instruction until an offer is accepted, but you will then be at a serious disadvantage in the event of a contract race, or buyer eager to move quickly.

Q.

What are our options if we buy a loft conversion in a Bromley planning authority conservation area ?

A.

An integral part of the due diligence for buyers includes the application for searches of Bromley planning authority to see conservation area status and the required consent for changes. .

Q.

Does your firm specialise auction conveyancing in Bickley?

A.

Our company is familiar with residential property auction protocols. Traditionally difficult to value buildings e. g. building land, are included in auctions which want added review. Lawyers therefore encourage that buyers at auction appoint an experienced property conveyancing lawyer well in advance of the property auction date to allow enough time for a detailed review of the auction pack.

Subsequently, following the property auction your Homeward Legal solicitor is fully prepared for concluding the purchase inside 4 weeks as usually required .

Q.

We are purchasing a £437000, what will be calculated for Stamp Duty Land Tax?

A.

The SDLT due is based on the home's price. On a £437000 house in Bickley, stamp duty will be £13110.
