Q.

How do I get the cheapest conveyancing solicitors?

A.

Lack of clarity over this topic catches out many homeowners, and can leave them paying far more in conveyancing fees than they budgeted. Many firms offer 'the cheapest conveyancing quotes', however additional fees are often hiding in the solicitor's terms. Any fees should be clearly defined. Our quotes offer a clear statement of your solicitors fees for a standard purchase or sale.

Q.

The estate agent we're using in Woodcote Green has suggested a property solicitor which they often use. Is it risky to use this firm?

A.

An agent will usually recommend a solicitors firm, however, such referrals need to be considered carefully, as it may be the case that the agent recommends the conveyancer who pays out the highest referral fee, not the most appropriate choice.

Q.

At what point is it appropriate to get a solicitor?

A.

In the vast majority of cases, the faster you instruct the better, as conveyancing involves several tasks that can be carried out straight away. Instructing your solicitor

earlier for a purchase allows you can shave days off the process by having the details of your instructed solicitor ready when you make an offer, or, if you are selling a property, information, especially from slow third-parties, can be requested even prior to accepting an offer.

Q.

What enquiries about the uncertain risk of possible flooding to properties in Lewisham will a Ladywell property lawyer report back on?

A.

A vital part of the conveyancing procedure involves a conveyancing solicitor conducting conveyancing searches (environmental) that give you information on the risk of flooding in Ladywell. On (02-Nov-11) there were no warnings around the at the Ravensbourne at Lewisham, Including Ladywell, London Borough of Lewisham

Q.

What precautions can I take to bypass paying out for stamp duty to the Revenue?

A.

Stamp Duty Land Tax must be paid on houses over £125,000. Homeward Legal do not advise purchasers arrange any stamp duty reduction, because these schemes are expensive and the HMRC can review a scheme up to 6 years after a sale is completed and the total stamp duty, with interest, will be due.

Q.

Does anybody hold any thorough online info on the Ladywell conservation areas?

A.

English Heritage have conducted a survey and created records on the condition (poor to good) of conservation areas along with the vulnerability.

Conservation area concerns like the historic layout of roads or excessive road signs are managed by the local Lewisham planning authority.

Q.

What do searches appertain to?

A.

Searches are queries undertaken on behalf of the purchaser. Searches are strongly recommended, however they consider legal considerations.

Q.

Is it advisable to get searches for chancel liability? I am buying on the same road as a 1700s glebe in Ladywell.

A.

Where land in Ladywell was once owned by a lay-rector, new owners of that property may be obliged to cover the cost of repairs to a church in the area. Insurance may be available to protect a buyer should a Ladywell Parochial Church Council enforce liability.
