Q.

Grove Park area information

The neighbouring hospital for Grove Park is University Lewisham.

Q.

How do we find affordable conveyancing in Grove Park?

A.

This issue catches out many homeowners, and can leave them paying far more in fees than they budgeted. Many conveyancers promote 'the cheapest conveyancing quotes', but additional costs will be included in the small print that homeowners often do not check. Our online quote calculator will generate an accurate quote for your transaction.

Q.

What average time should it take our assigned property lawyer to carry out all of the legal formalities on a flat in a home in Grove Park?

A.

The conveyancing process can take anywhere from 1 month to 12 weeks, which can be affected by a number of things, like the efficiency of the seller's conveyancer, or absent parties.

Q.

Please suggest how to circumvent paying for stamp duty to the Revenue?

SDLT usually must be paid on purchases over one hundred and twenty-five thousand pounds. Homeward Legal firmly advise against any form of stamp duty scheme, because these schemes are often uneconomical and unreliable.

Q.

What is the council tax on a period terraced home in Grove Park?

A.

In most cases a report on title should cover the appropriate Lewisham council tax band. The latest council tax rates for Grove Park are tabled on the Lewisham local authority website. At the time of writing (13 November 2012) band rates are:

  • Band A - £899.00
  • Band B - £1,049.00
  • Band C - £1,199.00
  • Band D - £1,349.00
  • Band E - £1,649.00
  • Band F - £1,948.00
  • Band G - £2,248.00
  • Band H - £2,698.00

Q.

Do I need to choose the firm of solicitors who commonly works with by our local agent?

A.

The agent will be able to influence a solicitors firm they refer a large volume of work to, and can therefore exert pressure on a solicitor to complete sooner. However, if the agent is paid a fee by the solicitor, there is a risk that the agent may suggest the firm which pays to the largest referral fee, not the law firm with the best reputation.

Q.

The home being purchased is on a brownfield site. Can the soil still be contaminated?

A.

Given the history of industry and agriculture in parts of Grove Park, soil contamination is inescapable. Environment search results will factor contaminants, including metals and others such as groundwater contaminants like sewage and fertilisers.

Q.

Which local authority looks after Grove Park?

A.

Grove Park is located in London Borough of Lewisham Council, Town Hall, Catford, London, SE6 4RU, Call:

Q.

Would ordering a property survey be a good idea if we are purchasing any property?

A.

It is heavily suggested that Grove Park buyers arrange a survey if buying in Grove Park. Many concerns affect a property, such as roof damage. These will not be reported on by a solicitor.
