Q.

How do we find a cheap solicitor in East Dulwich to purchase leasehold property?

A.

Many property lawyers advertise supposedly cheap conveyancing quotes. Unfortunately additional costs are frequently hidden in the solicitor's terms that sellers and buyers often do not check. Third party costs, termed disbursements, to be paid should also be included on a quote Any additional fees ought to be reasonable. They be applied only where the lawyer must complete additional work on your behalf, which could not be anticipated at the start of the process. The online quote calculator can generate an accurate statement of the legal fees for the property you plan to buy.

Q.

How many weeks should it take our assigned conveyancer to exchange all of the legal process on a maisonette in a home we are buying?

A.

The conveyancing process can take anywhere between around a month and three months based on a number of issues for example the efficiency of the vendor's property solicitor, or the length of the chain.

Q.

Will the home's fixtures and fittings include things such as built-in wardrobes?

A.

Commonly, fixtures are fixed to walls and other surfaces and fixtures are free-standing. To avoid misunderstandings, a fixtures and fittings form should be agreed, saving heartache once the sale is completed.

Q.

What makes the conveyancing process to require so much time and effort?

A.

The legal work required to buy or sell a property can be lengthy for a variety of reasons. The reasons can unfortunately be out of a lawyer's hands. We endeavour to reduce the effect of these delays by pushing all parties involved.

Q.

Could our legal fees have any hidden charges?

A.

We do not charge any extra, hidden costs whatsoever. Know that some solicitors only estimate conveyancing costs, which they will not be bound to.

Q.

Is it advisable that I get a chancel search when my partner and I are purchasing in East Dulwich near a 1300s church?

A.

Property owners near to specific local church buildings must pay for repairs, where chancel repair liability exists. A chancel search is used to confirm whether such a liability exists. Liability is more common in some parts of the country. Your conveyancing solicitor will suggest an appropriate indemnity policy to address chancel liability. East Dulwich Church of England properties include Dulwich, St Clement with St Peter and St John the Evangelist.

Q.

My wife and I are planning to buy in East Dulwich, and would like to check that there are any designated conservation areas.

A.

With 9000 conservation areas across the country, the streets and neighbourhoods in or near East Dulwich will include a range of areas of 'special architectural and historic interest' registered as protected. You may wish to contact the council for more information, but your solicitor will address this during the house-buying process.

Q.

I am intending to buy a property in the parish of Haggerston St Mary. Is a chancel search compulsory?

A.

A solicitor might recommend that a chancel search be taken out. Although some Parochial Church Councils have exercised their right to exact chancel repairs on the current owners of lay rectorships, a solicitor cannot state with certainty that a parish which has not been subject to chancel liability in the past will not automatically be the case for future owners, so the solicitor will be unable to make any guarantees, and will recommend insurance.
