Q.

We are looking for a solicitor that offers cheap conveyancing. What should be watch out for?

A.

This catches out many buyers, and can leave them paying far more in fees than they budgeted, and many conveyancers offer cheap conveyancing quotes, but additional charges are frequently hidden in small print that buyers often do not check. Any disbursements to be paid must also be stated on any quote for conveyancing in CamberwellOur quotes clearly state all legal fees for a standard conveyancing transaction.

Q.

Will our property legal fees cover any hidden fees?

A.

It is unfortunate that buyers must be on their guard for considerable extra costs hidden in small print. Our solicitors will never charge any extra, hidden fees. Our quotes offer an accurate price.

Q.

The property being purchased is on a ex-industrial site. What should we do regarding lead (Pb) soil contamination?

A.

Camberwell and the surrounding region has a legacy of chemical contamination. Environment search results will factor contaminants, including metals and others such as insecticides.

Q.

Does homewardlegal.co.uk carry out the legal conveyancing of auction properties in Camberwell?

A.

Homeward Legal is able to act for auction buyers and sellers. Usually unusually constructed auction lots for example property that cannot be insured, are included in property auctions and these require deeper examination before committing. We therefore strongly suggest bidders to decide on a good conveyancing solicitor well before the auction for a full report of the auction legal pack,Subsequently, immediately after the day of the auction your appointed solicitor is totally able to concentrate on quickly concluding the legal side of things in 28 days as typically required .

Q.

Food risk searches may be standard procedure but in light of recent weather changes e g the Met Office projecting more intense rainfall are they enough to investigate enough about the local Camberwell flood risk?

A.

A thorough property solicitor in Camberwell will suggest that you apply for environmental searches if the standard search flags up a Camberwell area flood risk

For more peace of mind you could always converse with a future neighbour.

Q.

If you are purchasing near a church in Camberwell, would you advise that I get a chancel search?

A.

In Camberwell, some owners can be required to contribute towards upkeep of church property in the locality. A chancel search addresses if such a liability exists. A solicitor will be able to advise as to whether a chancel search is necessary, and recommend suitable insurance. Church of England properties in this area include St George, St Giles, St Matthew and St Michael & All Angels.

Q.

Is the Stamp Duty Land Tax fee a disbursement or fee?

A.

Comparing quotes is not always straightforward, given the various definitions different firms use to describe the same thing. This charge is a fee not a disbursement, and should be included in your quote.

Q.

Do fixtures and fittings include things like light switches?

A.

Mainly, there is not a legal definition of 'fixtures and fittings'. The need to clarify this is frequently not considered, making early agreement of the list of items included with the purchase so essential.
