Q.

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

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

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?

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

Q.

Does homewardlegal.co.uk handle the legal conveyancing of auction properties in Brixton?

A.

Yes - Our firm is able to work with residential property auction procedures. It is not uncommon for difficult to value auction lots such as building land are listed in auctions and these want extra. We therefore strongly encourage bidders to select an auction experienced conveyancing lawyer well in advance of the property auction date to allow sufficient time for a thorough investigation.

Following the auction the lawyer is fully able to concentrate on finishing the legal work inside the reduced time frame as required .

Q.

What length of time should I expect it to take my assigned conveyancer to get through the conveyancing work for the top floor of forties house we hope to buy?

A.

Getting contracts exchanged can take anywhere from 1 month to 3 months, contingent on various things, like the efficiency of the vendor's property lawyer, or the time taken to issue draft contracts. Our property lawyers are focused on speed and communication you moving home as quickly as realistically possible.

Q.

Do we need to get a chancel liability search if my family are buying a Brixton home on the same road as land owned by the church?

A.

Chancel repair liability can require home owners to cover the cost of maintenance of a church in the area. Indemnity policies can be arranged if chancel liability is likely to be enforced. Your solicitor can provide more details. Church of England properties in the area include Angell Town, St John the Evangelist, Road, Christ Church, St Mary and St Matthew.

Q.

Doing your own conveyancing without the aid of a conveyancing solicitor in Brixton looks to be possible when buying and selling a home. Would it really be viable ?

A.

There are no reasons why a home seller shouldn't embark on the bulk of the legal process without the help of an experienced conveyancing solicitor in Brixton.

However, a Brixton lawyer is familiar with a large number of tasks such as checking redemption statements and interpreting planning contraventions many of which require a qualified professional. Critically DIY lawyers will not have sufficient indemnity cover which qualified lawyers are compelled to be in possession of.
