Q.

How do I find a cheap solicitor in Furzedown to buy a house?

A.

Numerous solicitors purport to offer 'the cheapest conveyancing quotes'. Unfortunately additional costs may pad the final invoice. Any additional charges needs to be reasonable and only apply to matters if the solicitor is required to complete extra work , which could not be anticipated at the start of the process. The quote should list the disbursements to be paid.Our online calculator will create an accurate quote for your buy.

Q.

We are worried about the council tax amounts on a residential end of terrace property in Furzedown, how much are they?

A.

Ordinarily, a conveyancing report on title should give the appropriate Wandsworth council tax band. The correct rates for homes in Furzedown are published online at the Wandsworth local authority site. At the time of writing (18 October 2012) the rates are:

  • Band A - £456.00
  • Band B - £532.00
  • Band C - £608.00
  • Band D - £684.00
  • Band E - £836.00
  • Band F - £988.00
  • Band G - £1,140.00
  • Band H - £1,367.00

Q.

What kind of exploration in connection with the risk of flooding in the Wandsworth region will my Furzedown property lawyer look into for a residential property I am wanting to buy?

A.

A qualified lawyer makes an application for environmental searches that incorporate Furzedown flood risk data.

Q.

Is there a government body any detailed data about the Furzedown conservation areas?

A.

English Heritage have assembled a list of the state of repair of conservation areas.

Local Furzedown conservation area matters, for instance public spaces, removal of existing windows or plastic box signs are governed by Wandsworth.

Q.

We have had a quote from you. May there be any extra costs?

A.

We never hide any additional costs for standard conveyancing work. Buyers and sellers should be aware that some conveyancers give 'quotes' which are in fact estimates, meaning that your final bill could be much higher.

Q.

Should we get a chancel search when I am buying in Furzedown?

A.

In Furzedown, where land was once owned by a lay impropriators, new owners of that property may be obliged to contribute towards the cost of maintenance of specific local church buildings. Liability has the potential to impact the value of a property, but insurance is available should an obligation to fund repairs be enforced. Furzedown ecclesiastical properties where a chancel search may be appropriate include Streatham , St Paul.

Q.

Can you recommend how to avoid paying stamp duty tax?

A.

Stamp duty is due on property sold for more than £125,000. Homeward Legal do not recommend any stamp duty reduction scheme. Such schemes are highly expensive and can be very unlikely to succeed.

Q.

How many weeks will it take our assigned conveyancing solicitor to conduct all of the legal formalities on a semi detached new build house we are buying in Furzedown?

A.

The legal process can take anywhere between one month and 12 weeks contingent on various factors e.g. the speed of the vendor's conveyancing solicitor, or the number of people in the chain.
