Q.

I need the cheapest conveyancing quote. How do I get a quote?

A.

The lack of clarity surrounding this point catches out many sellers and buyers, and can leave them paying far more in fees than they budgeted. Many property lawyers offer supposedly 'the cheapest conveyancing'. Unfortunately additional fees may increase the solicitor's invoice. Any additional charges listed in your solicitor's terms should be reasonable. The online quote calculator can generate an accurate statement of the legal fees for the property you plan to buy.

Q.

In a few months we are shortly going to be finally moving from our detached house in Crystal Palace to a new house in Hither Green . When to select a removals firm?

A.

The best advice is for home movers to hold off booking a removal firm until after you and the other side has confirmed your home moving date that regularly occurs after contracts have exchanged. As a rule removals firms will charge a late cancellation charge

Try Regal Removals, 84 Ormanton Rd, London, SE26 6RG Telephone: 020 8265 8136.

Q.

We are intending to buy a barn conversion in Little Stanmore. Will it be necessary to get a chancel search?

A.

A solicitor could advise that a chancel search is taken out, regardless of the parish in which the property being purchased is found. In Crystal Palace's much older areas, chancel repair may be apportioned on the owners of a property where Parochial Church Councils may have not done so in the past.

Q.

Do you need a chancel search? I am purchasing a Crystal Palace home close to rectory grounds.

A.

Property owners neighbouring a church in the area are expected to fund repairs, as a result of chancel repair liability. A chancel search is used to confirm whether such a liability exists. A conveyancing solicitor will be able to advise further.

Q.

We plan to complete on around 26th September. How is stamp duty determined?

A.

SDLT will rely on the purchase price. Stamp duty will be £21160 on a £529000 property (correct March 2013).

Q.

How is Crystal Palace contaminated land investigated when purchasing a property?

A.

Residential property will be contaminated by a wide range of environmental factors, and an environmental search will confirm that a plot of land is impacted by contaminants in Crystal Palace such as masts or pylons and proximity to scrap yards.

Q.

Which local authority is responsible for Crystal Palace?

A.

Crystal Palace is located in London Borough of Lewisham Council, Town Hall, Catford, London, SE6 4RU

Q.

Do property searches make a difference?

A.

These searches are a commonly-used bundle of queries raised by the purchaser's solicitor via specific authorities, and cover solely legal facets of the purchase.
