Q.

I need to find a solicitor that offers cheap conveyancing in Brixton. What do I need to check for?

A.

Numerous property lawyers claim to offer 'the cheapest conveyancing quotes'. However additional fees may increase your final bill. We provide quotes, not estimates, and clearly state the fees for a standard conveyancing.

Q.

We need to complete this home purchase as soon as possible, how do we organise a fast conveyancing transaction?

A.

Instructing a proactive and experienced solicitor is key faster conveyancing. Additionally, there are various jobs you as the purchaser can do to speed up the process, such as, keeping in regular contact with your solicitor, replying to your solicitor by phone, fax or email and confirming your mortgage offer.

Q.

Should we order a chancel search if I am intending to buy in the parish of Upper Holloway St John?

A.

Regardless of the Brixton parish in which you are purchasing, the solicitor instructed to handle the transaction could advise that a chancel search be taken out. In Brixton's much older areas, chancel repair

may be apportioned on the owners of a building where Parochial Church Councils (PCCs) have previously chosen not to do so.

Q.

I am expecting to move out of our terraced house in Brixton into our new home in Streatham . What is the best point to select a removals firm?

A.

Most solicitors tend to advocate that home vendors wait organising removals until such time as exchange of contracts as an agreed moving date will not have been formalised. Some removals firms will charge a rearrangement payment

Local firms include Jones Rolls Royce, 199 Brixton Hill, London, SW2 5LR Phone: 020 8291 6286 or Fulham Removals Ltd, 141 157 Acre La, London, SW2 5UA Tel: 020 7978 8200.

Q.

Do conveyancing searches matter?

A.

Conveyancing searches are enquiries requested by the buyer's solicitor, for example a drainage search. They are unrelated to a building survey and will not advise on the structure of the property.

Q.

How do I avoid being gazumped?

A.

Gazumping occurs when a seller accepts an offer and then dismisses it, selecting instead another buyer's offer. There is almost always a risk of being gazumped. Consider instructing an efficient solicitor as soon as you can to reduce the chance of your offer being gazumped.

Q.

Would ordering a home buyers survey be sensible when we are purchasing a property?

A.

It is strongly recommended that purchasers arrange a property surveyor to perform a survey. There can be a wide range of concerns which have a negative impact on a property, that will not be addressed during the conveyancing process. These can include subsidence or flat roof leaks.

Q.

What sort of additional enquiries in relation to the risk of flooding around Lambeth will a solicitor in Brixton look over for a residential house I am intending to purchase?

A.

The property conveyancing solicitor applies for official environmental searches that will include Brixton flood risk area data. A recent check (22-Dec-12) there were no warnings around the South Devon Coast from Plymouth to Lyme Regis at the tributaries between Norton Ferris and Wilton
