How do we get fixed rate conveyancing?


This topic catches out many sellers and buyers, and can leave them paying far more in conveyancing fees than they budgeted, and many property lawyers claim to offer supposedly cheap conveyancing quotes. Unfortunately extra fees are frequently hidden in the terms and conditions. Our quotes clearly state all legal fees for a standard conveyancing transaction.


Will we need a survey?


The Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors firmly recommend that buyers arrange a home surveyor to perform a survey. Many concerns can negatively affect a property. These can include settlement, and issues such as these are not likely to be investigated as part of the conveyancing itself.


Are 'conveyancing searches' necessary?


Searches are a typical set of enquiries performed on behalf of the party intending to buy the property, for example a search of the Index Map. They will not be a substitute for a building survey.


As a consequence of the fact that 2012 was second wettest year since records began we are questioning whether conveyancing searches (environmental) won't be sufficient?

A thorough conveyancing solicitor in Fetcham will consider get in depth property environmental searches if the initial conveyancing searches identifies any kind of risk of flooding in Fetcham

You can always contact a local resident to gain more local history.


How many weeks will it take my designated conveyancing solicitor to get through all of the legal formalities on a terraced Edwardian home we are intending to purchase in Fetcham?


The legal process can take anywhere from 1 month to 12 weeks, which can depend on any number of issues such as the speed of the seller's conveyancing solicitor, or the time taken to issue draft contracts.


Is it wise to avoid paying for stamp duty to the Revenue?


Stamp duty mitigation is not advised when buying in Fetcham. These schemes are costly and unreliable.


What is the authority that is responsible for policing the state of repair of the conservation areas in Fetcham and Fetcham?


English Heritage have created records of the condition of conservation areas. Local Fetcham conservation areas are created by the local authority (Mole Valley) who preserve everything from including things like excessive road signs, the colours of paint used and the historic layout of roads.


We are on a tight budget - Will doing the conveyancing on a DIY basis without the assistance of a Fetcham conveyancing solicitor help save any cash?


If you are so inclined have a go you can definitely conduct your own conveyancing without having a professional Fetcham property lawyer. That said, a Fetcham lawyer is in charge of a significant number of jobs including approving contract or investigating title documents which need the relevant training. More importantly have a go conveyancers are not covered by appropriate indemnity cover that solicitors practices will carry.
