Q.

Noted Kingston Vale interest

A.

Wimbledon London Windmill, Marble Hill House English Heritage and Chiswick House English Heritage are close at hand to Kingston Vale.

The most convenient hospital is New Victoria Kingston upon Thames.

Q.

We are trying to find low cost conveyancing. because we are on a limited budget.

A.

The lack of clarity surrounding this issue catches out many sellers and buyers, and can leave them paying far more in conveyancing fees than they budgeted, and many conveyancers advertise theoretically 'the cheapest conveyancing quotes', however extra costs will be included in small print. Any additional fees found in the terms needs to be fair. Our quotes clearly state the solicitors' fees for a standard conveyancing transaction.

Q.

Is a Telegraphic Transfer fee paid to the conveyancer?

A.

Each fee and disbursement ought to be stated on a quote, with no additional charges of any kind in the terms and conditions. This cost is a fee not a disbursement. It should be included in a quote.

Q.

Conveyancing and environmental searches may be all well and good but considering recent climactic events such as the fact that last year was second wettest year since records began are they actually good enough to check enough about the Kingston Vale flood risk area?

Your Kingston Vale lawyer will recommend that you apply for flood searches if the initial search spots a significant risk.

For added peace of mind why not contact a local resident.

Q.

Should I be worried about gazumping?

A.

Gazumping occurs when a property seller accepts an offer, only to dismiss it in favour of a higher offer. The risk of gazumping exists for almost any purchase. You should instruct a fast, efficient solicitor as early as possible to reduce the chance of gazumping.

Q.

What are our options if we buy a semi detached house in a Kingston upon Thames council conservation area ?

A.

An integral part of the legal process involves making enquiries of the local authority to see conservation area status and the required consent for any changes. These searches vary in cost but are charged at cost to the purchaser.

Q.

Does 'fixtures and fittings' include things like sideboards?

A.

Commonly, fixtures are fixed items, such as cupboards to the property and cannot be easily removed, whereas fixtures are free-standing items, such as kitchen units. This is often not considered, making the approval of the list of fixtures and fittings essential.

Q.

When do you need to find a conveyancing solicitor to act on our purchase?

A.

If you choose a conveyancing firm with 'no move, no fee' protection, the sooner the better. The legal work can then commence straight away. Instructing your solicitor earlier for a purchase means that your offer may be taken more seriously if you already have a solicitor instructed, or, if you are selling a property, relevant information can be sourced sooner (this is particularly true for leasehold properties).

Q.

Will you need searches for chancel liability? I am buying next to a parsonage in Kingston Vale.

A.

The outcome of a landmark case 10 years ago reaffirmed that 'lay rectors' of property must contribute towards church repairs. Liability has the potential to impact the value of a Kingston Vale property, but an indemnity policy may be available to protect the new owners. Kingston Vale churches where a chancel search may be appropriate include St John the Baptist.
