Q.

We are trying to find low cost conveyancing in Lambeth. How do we get a quote?

A.

Many firms offer supposedly cheap conveyancing, but additional charges are frequently hidden in the terms and conditions. Excited homeowners, eager to get underway, often ignore this small print when they instruct. Additional fees found in terms of engagement should be reasonable and clear and be applied only where your lawyer is required to complete unexpected extra work in your interest, which could not be anticipated at the start of the process.

Q.

The property seller appears to have fitted windows to the property in Lambeth which may conflict with nearby conservation area rules

A.

Your property solicitor is required to determine if the property is located within a conservation area and whether any modifications have essential permission from the Lambeth planning authority.

Q.

To complete on our £ 129,000 residence purchase ASAP, can we organise a fast conveyancing transaction?

A.

Firstly, a faster move is key is to employing a proactive solicitor. There are a number of tasks you as the buyer can do to get moving sooner, such as, encouraging your solicitor to carry out searches promptly, promptly completing and return any forms and arranging any finances require to complete the purchase.

Q.

Should I choose the property solicitor referred by our estate agent in Brent?

A.

Both agents and mortgage brokers will usually endorse a solicitor. These referrals must be carefully considered, as it may be the case that the agent recommends the firm which pays to the largest referral fee, not a firm with local expertise and a solid reputation.

Q.

We are intending to purchase a barn conversion in the parish of Feltham. Will a chancel search be important?

A.

A lawyer may suggest that a chancel search is ordered. In older areas of Lambeth, chancel repair can be imposed on the owners of a house where Parochial Church Councils may have not done so in the past. Even if liability is unlikely, indemnity insurance is a sensible precaution.

Q.

Is contaminated land a problem for houses in Lambeth?

A.

Several contaminants can lessen the value of residential property in Lambeth, and factors like sand or gravel pits will be detailed in an appropriate search.

Q.

Should I get a building survey for this property purchase?

A.

It is highly recommended that purchasers in Lambeth order a house survey when purchasing in Lambeth. There can be a wide range of issues which will impact a property, which will not be covered by the legal work. These include failed double glazing.

Q.

Is soil in Lambeth contaminated by mercury (Hg)?

A.

There are extensive regulations in place to curtail soil contamination. Also considering issues such as water contaminants such as industrial chemicals, contaminants affecting Lambeth property will be factored into an environmental search.
