Q.

On the purchase of a 493k property, what will be the fees? I am trying to find a low cost conveyancing quote.

A.

Misleading conveyancing quotes catch out many buyers, leaving them to pay sometimes £100s more than planned. Many solicitors claim to offer cheap conveyancing, but additional charges are often hiding in the solicitor's terms of engagement. A conveyancing quote should, in addition, define any disbursements. Costs which are listed in terms of engagement needs to be fair and only apply to matters if the solicitor is required to complete extra work in your interest, which could not be anticipated at the start of the process.

Q.

Which local authority is responsible for Cheam?

A.

Cheam is located in London Borough of Merton Council, Merton Civic Centre, London Road, Morden, Surrey, SM4 5DX, contact: 020 8274 4901

Q.

What investigation as respects the risk and history of floods at Sutton will my conveyancing solicitor in Cheam give details on?

A.

An important step in the conveyancing protocol of purchasing a property involves your conveyancing lawyer conducting environmental searches that set out details in relation to the local Cheam flood risk.

As an additional measure, a Cheam conveyancing solicitor might possibly advocate a more involved (e.g. Landmark) detailed local Cheam area flood risk search. At the time of writing (16-Jul-12) there were no warnings around the Pyl Brook at North Cheam at the Beverley Brook Catchment in the London Boroughs of Merton, Sutton, Kingston upon Thames, Richmond upon Thames and Wandsworth

Q.

What average time does it take our property lawyer to carry out the conveyancing process on the lower floor of Edwardian house we are purchasing in Cheam?

A.

The legal process can take anywhere from a month to 3 months based on any number of things, such as the efficiency of the seller's conveyancing solicitor, or whether there are any linked sales.

Homeward Legal's property lawyers are highly proactive with a view to completing as rapidly as realistically possible.

Q.

How is stamp duty tax calculated and what should it be on a £935000 property?

A.

SDLT will depend on the purchase price. For a property estimated at £935000, SDLT is £37400.

Q.

What conservation areas are there in Cheam?

A.

There are several conservation areas near or within Cheam. Your conveyancing lawyer will provide more details, in regard to relevant conservation area restrictions in Cheam.

Q.

How do we uncover more data on the standard of Cheam and Cheam conservation areas?

A.

English Heritage have produced records of the condition (poor to good) of conservation areas in Cheam and throughout England. Conservation area concerns such as area development, addition of hard standings to the front of houses or advertising hoardings are police by the local authority (Sutton).

Q.

When in the process do you need to instruct a conveyancing solicitor to act on our purchase?

A.

The short answer is, instructing as soon as possible is wise, as there are a number of tasks that can be performed straight away. Instructing your solicitor sooner for a purchase means that you will the details of your Cheam solicitor ready when you make an offer, or, if you are selling a property, prior to marketing the property, documents can be prepared to make it potentially more attractive to motivated buyers.
