Q.

I need the cheapest conveyancing solicitors. because we are on a limited budget.

A.

Many online and high street firms purport to offer so-called cheap conveyancing. However extra fees may increase the solicitor's invoice. Charges included in terms and conditions should be reasonable. Our online calculator will create an accurate quote for your buy.

Q.

How long should I expect it to take my assigned property solicitor to finish the legal work for an apartment in a house we want to buy?

A.

The process can take anywhere between a month and three months depending on a number of issues such as the speed of the seller's conveyancing solicitor, or the time taken to get a mortgage offer.

Q.

Is a Local Authority search a disbursement or fee?

A.

Comparing quotes is not always straightforward, given the different terminology. This charge is a disbursement not a fee, and is passed on at cost.

Q.

If I am intending to buy near Greenhithe, in the parish of Elmley, do we need a chancel search?

A.

Whether you are buying a property in Greenhithe or elsewhere in the county, the lawyer could advise that a chancel search is ordered. Through 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 imposed liability will not be so in future, so it can be difficult to use this as a guide.

Q.

Are 'conveyancing searches' necessary?

A.

Searches are an accepted pack of questions ordered by the purchaser's property lawyer. Searches will not be a substitute for a building survey and will not give information on the physical condition of the property.

Q.

Do we need a house survey?

A.

We recommend that the majority of buyers order an inspection if you are planning to buy in Greenhithe. Buyers should be aware that there are a wide range of issues which can affect a property. These can include roof damage. These will not be reported on by a solicitor.

Q.

What actual conveyancing searches will a conveyancer in Greenhithe order when instructed on a Greenhithe house?

A.

The customary conveyancing procedure will be to obtain Local Authority (personal or official), Drainage and Water Search (CON29DW), Environment Search and Coal Mining Search and, depending on certain criteria, specific local searches, which might include Subsidence.

Q.

Could Greenhithe topsoil be contaminated by selenium (Se)?

A.

Policies are in place to control pollution, waste, water and chemical contamination. Environment search results will factor contaminants, including metals and others such as groundwater contamination and chlorinated solvents.
