Q.

We are trying to find a fixed rate conveyancing quote. What is included?

A.

This matter catches out many property buyers and sellers, and can leave them paying far more in conveyancing fees than they budgeted. Many solicitors advertise supposedly 'the cheapest conveyancing'. Often extra costs may be added into small print. Any charges needs to be reasonable and be applied only where your solicitor must perform additional tasks on your behalf, which could not be anticipated at the start of the process. Homeward Legal quotes offer a clear statement of your legal fees for a standard conveyancing transaction.

Q.

Is the SDLT fee a fee or a disbursement?

A.

It is not always clear whether an itemised charge is a disbursement or fee. This charge is a fee not a disbursement, and should be included in your conveyancing quote.

Q.

Is iron (Fe) soil contamination likely in Catford?

A.

Catford and the surrounding region has a legacy of chemical contamination. Also considering issues such as groundwater contamination and ammonia, contaminants affecting Catford property will be factored into an environmental search.

Q.

What average time will it take my assigned property solicitor to conduct the conveyancing work on the lower floor of Edwardian property we are purchasing in Catford?

A.

The conveyancing process can take anywhere between a month and three months depending on various issues for example the speed of the vendor's conveyancing solicitor, or the speed of your lender. Our lawyers are highly focused on speed and communication exchanging as quickly as we possibly can.

Q.

What sort of scrutiny in respect to the risk and history of a flood at Lewisham will my Catford conveyancing solicitor report on?

A.

A key step in the legal process of purchasing a property involves a conveyancing solicitor applying for conveyancing searches that set out details with respect to Catford flood risk area data. A more thorough Lewisham database search, such as the Landmark search, could be recommended by a qualified Catford conveyancer if in the event that the enviro. search reveal any risk of flooding. On (02-Nov-11) there were no warnings around the at the Ravensbourne from Bellingham to Catford, Including Beckingham Place Park, London Borough of Lewisham

Q.

I have been reading about the conveyancing process when buying a home , Is it a good idea to take care of the legal work myself?

A.

Legally speaking there is no argument at all why you cant adopt a DIY approach and conduct legal and technical work on your own.

That said, a Catford property solicitor typically handles a huge number of actions including approving completion statements and verifying identities of transacting parties most of which need a skilled professional.

Q.

Will charges for the conveyancing for our Catford move take into account any additional costs?

A.

No. Homeward Legal will never charge any hidden extra charges to buy or sell a home in Catford. Be aware that some solicitor do not give accurate quotes, only estimates, which they will not be required to adhere to.

Q.

Which Catford mortgage lender panels are your solicitors on?

A.

Homeward Legal can work with all the major lenders serving Catford buyers. Local mortgage lenders and brokers include Pay Finance, Flat 1 Benjamin Court/110 Bromley Rd, London, SE6 2UN, and Your Mortgage1st, 87/87/Bromley Road, London, SE6 2UF.
