No. Our solicitors never charge any hidden extra costs. Be aware that some solicitors' firms will give a low estimate, not an accurate quote. You may face a much greater total fee when you have completed.

Q.

Will I need to get a chancel search if you are buying in Croydon on the same street as a 15th Century priory?

A.

Potentially amounting to over £100,000 in repair cost obligations, chancel liability should be considered by buyers of Croydon property likely to be affected. Following the Land Registration Act 2002, interest over any affected land in Croydon must be registered by October 2013. This will make it easier to identify affected property through a chancel search. Churches in the area include Minster, Spring Park, All Saints, St Andrew and All Saints.

Homeward Legal recommend that home buyers arrange a property surveyor when you intend to buy in Croydon. There can be many concerns that will impact a property, which will not be addressed during a property valuation, which include corrosion of pipework and dry rot.

Is your panel of solicitors able to complete within 28 days of exchange on the conveyancing for property auction properties in Croydon?

Our team are property auction specialists and often do the legal conveyancing bidders at auction. It is highly recommended to decide on a SRA regulated solicitor as quickly as possible so there is time for an investigation of the sellers documents well before the auction day. Thereafter, following the auction day your property lawyer is completely focused on finishing the legal side of things within a as tight time frame as usually required .
