Q.

I need low cost conveyancing in Carshalton. What is included?

A.

Both high-street and online solicitors advertise theoretically cheap conveyancing. Unfortunately additional costs can inflate the final bill. Additional fees should be reasonable and clear. Applicable disbursements ought to be listed on a quote

Q.

Should we get a chancel search? We are purchasing a Carshalton house by a 14th Century vicarage.

A.

The Law Lords decision in a court case between a parish council and owners of neighbouring farmland liable for church repairs reaffirmed that 'lay rectors' of property must fund church repairs. A number of sources are used to identify liability, including the Title Register database. Carshalton Church of England properties where a chancel search may be appropriate include All Saints and Beeches, The Good Shepherd.

Q.

Will lawyer in Carshalton order any property on the London Victorian mid terrace building I am intending to purchase?

A.

If purchasing and taking out a mortgage the mortgage lender expects specific searches, including these searches - Local Authority (personal

or official), Drainage and Water Search (CON29DW or personal) and Environment Search and, depending on certain criteria, specific local searches, which might include Contaminated land Search.

Q.

I have found an increasing number on and offline articles about doing your own legal work. Do I really have to use Carshalton property solicitor ?

A.

There is no argument why a home seller shouldn't do the legal work yourself. That said, a lawyer handles a long list of functions e.g. chasing deeds and DS1 documents or maintaining constant communication with agents which need experience. Despite that lawyers are made responsible to carry insurance cover that protects you from any errors.

I want to find fast Carshalton conveyancing solicitors, is that your firm?

Q.

What do we need to calculate stamp duty in Carshalton, and what should we budget for a £329000 residential property?

A.

The Stamp Duty Land Tax that is payable will depend on the value of the house or flat. For a Carshalton property valued at £329000, SDLT will be £9870.*

Q.

What are the issues if we buy a Carshalton building in a Sutton council conservation area ?

A.

Part of the legal process includes making enquiries of the local authority to establish conservation area status and the appropriate consent for changes. In the event that no appropriate consents be produced, your solicitor will recommend the best alternative which can include requesting an indemnity insurance policy or seeking retrospective consent from Sutton local authority.

Q.

I am purchasing a modern property. Should we have property searches performed?

A.

Searches are enquiries ordered for the buyer. These will not give information on the physical condition of the property.
