Q.

Does Croydon include any designated conservation areas?

A.

There are several conservation areas located near Croydon. Conservation areas in Croydon include Wellesley Road North. You may wish to contact the local authority for more information, but your solicitor will investigate this in detail during the property transaction.

Q.

Should we be worried about 'fixtures and fittings'?

A.

House purchasers in Croydon are regularly frustrated by a lack of clarity over which fixtures and fittings are included. Completion or agreement of a fixtures and fittings form is unfortunately often left to the last minute, when a dispute may jeopordise the transaction. This makes a fixtures and fittings form so necessary.

Q.

Are some of the conservation areas in Croydon are at risk?

A.

The list of the state of Croydons conservation areas is documented by English Heritage - the following information is viewable at English Heritage: Wellesley Road North with Croydon is listed as very bad with high vulnerability and condition improving.

Q.

Is a Homebuyer Report sensible if we are purchasing any property?

A.

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.

Q.

Why could sale conveyancing go on for so long?

A.

The Croydon conveyancing process could experience delays for a variety of reasons. Sometimes, the delays are out of a solicitor's control. We seek to lessen the impact of these delays by using fast search providers. Delays can include a slow firm acting for the lender.

Q.

We are purchasing a home in Fieldway, and need to know if we will be eligible for stamp duty relief.

A.

Croydon disadvantaged areas are identified by ward boundary. Areas in Croydon are New Addington and Fieldway. Update: As of the 2013/14 tax year, stamp duty relief for disadvantaged areas is no longer available.
