Q.

Do all cheap conveyancing quotes have extra fees? We need a discount conveyancing quote.

A.

Misleading conveyancing quotes catch out many buyers, leaving them to pay sometimes £100s more than planned. Many solicitors advertise cheap conveyancing, however extra costs are frequently hidden in the solicitor's terms. Additional fees found in the small print should be fair. They only be applied if the lawyer must perform additional tasks in your interest, which could not be anticipated at the start of the process. The conveyancing quote should also clearly state costs to be paid to third parties, e.g. the Land Registry, (disbursements).

Q.

Where do I determine more info on the standard of Blackheath and Blackheath conservation areas?

A.

Local conservation areas, such as paths or street posts are managed by the local authority (Greenwich). English Heritage have created a list of the state of repair of conservation areas.

Q.

We have to get fast property lawyers in Blackheath - is that you?

A.

We have implemented modern case and work flow systems . We give you carefully selected lawyer who will always

communicate with all parties in the buyer and seller chain such as local councils, to get a fast sale

Q.

When is it appropriate to find a conveyancer?

A.

Generally, the earlier in the process you can instruct a conveyancing solicitor, the better, as conveyancing involves a number of tasks which may be carried out immediately. Early instruction of a conveyancing firm for a purchase allows you can shave days off the process by having the details of your instructed solicitor ready when you make an offer, or, if you are selling a property, prior to marketing the property, documents can be prepared to make it potentially more attractive to motivated buyers.

Q.

Might our conveyancing charges in Blackheath introduce any supplementary hidden costs?

A.

It is unfortunate that buyer should read the terms of their conveyancing quote careful to identify any hidden fees. We do not hide any hidden charges. Some solicitors only estimate conveyancing costs. The final bill you receive may be much more.

Q.

What do we need to be aware of if purchasing a loft conversion in a Lewisham local authority conservation area ?

A.

An integral part of the legal process involves ordering of LLC1 searches of Greenwich council to ascertain conservation area status and the appropriate permission for developments. .

Q.

What average time should it take our solicitor to accomplish the conveyancing process for a semi detached Regency home we are purchasing in Blackheath?

A.

Getting contracts exchanged can take anywhere from 1 month to 12 weeks, which can be affected by a number of issues e.g. the efficiency of the seller's property solicitor, or whether your solicitor has to act for your lender.

Our chosen conveyancing solicitors are exceptionally focused on speed and communication, with the aim of you moving home in as short a time as possible.

Q.

Are we advised to get a chancel search if I am intending to purchase in the parish of Chelsea?

A.

Whichever Blackheath parish you are buying in, a conveyancer may suggest a chancel search. In older areas of Blackheath, chancel repair may be apportioned on the current owners of a house where Parochial Church Councils (PCCs) have previously chosen not to do so. It is not safe to rely on the historical behaviour of the parish council alone as a guide.
