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.

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.

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.

What sort of enquiries about the risk and history of floods in Southwark will my Camberwell solicitor check out?

A.

An experienced residential property conveyancing solicitor will apply for standard protocol property conveyancing searches, which include Camberwell historical flood risk data. At the time of writing (05-Dec-08) there were no warnings around the Tidal Thames from Deptford Creek to Wandsworth Bridge at the River Thames including areas in the boroughs of Greenwich, Lewisham, Southwark, Lambeth and Wandsworth

Q.

My husband and I are purchasing a building in Camberwell. Can we check that the building is in a conservation area?

A.

Conservation areas categorise neighbourhoods recorded as being of historical or architectural value. The lawyer handling your purchase should be able to offer more information and discuss what specific restrictions are in place.

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.

I am intending to buy a house in the parish of Savoy precinct. Will a chancel search be needed?

A.

Your conveyancing solicitor could recommend a chancel search. Chancel repair may be apportioned on current owners of a residence where church councils have previously chosen not to do so.

Q.

For the purchase, my mortgage lender, we have chosen Bradford and Bingley - is there anything we need to be aware of?

A.

Traditionally, it was usually straightforward for solicitors to act for both a buyer and their lender. Some lenders have reduced the number of firms able to act for them. We can act for all major UK mortgage lenders to keep legal costs to a minimum.
