Q.

I need the cheapest conveyancing solicitors in Lewisham, we are on a tight budget.

A.

The confusion over this matter catches out many buyers and sellers, and can leave them paying far more in fees than they budgeted, and many conveyancers advertise cheap conveyancing quotes. However extra fees will be included in the solicitor's terms of engagement. Any fees found in the terms should be fair and reasonable. Your conveyancing quote should state any disbursements to be paid.

Q.

If my family are buying in Lewisham on the same street as rectory land, is it important that I get a chancel search?

A.

In Lewisham, some owners can be required to fund upkeep of a medieval church. A number of sources are used to identify liability, including parish archives. Church of England properties in the local area where chancel liability may apply include St Mary the Virgin and St Stephen.

Q.

There is a lot of online help on handling the legal work when buying and selling a house. Might it be an unrealistic idea to do the conveyancing on a DIY basis without help.?

If you wish to have a stab you can feasibly complete the bulk of the your own conveyancing without the services of a qualified conveyancing solicitor in Lewisham. However, a conveyancer is in charge of a significant number of actions such as chasing retention releases and handling retentions which need a qualified professional. More importantly DIY lawyers do not have suitable indemnity insurance which solicitors are legally obligated to possess.

How can I find if any of the Lewisham conservation areas are in a neglected state?

A recent directory of the state of repair of conservation areas in Lewisham is chronicled by English Heritage. This details are currently listed at English Heritage - Deptford High Street is recorded as very bad with medium vulnerability and improving.

Q.

Is a Homebuyer Report required if we are buying a property in Lewisham?

A.

We strongly recommend that home buyers in Lewisham book a survey if purchasing in Lewisham. It is a fact that there are many defects that can negatively affect a property, that a lender's valuation survey, for example, will not cover, such as ground movement and cracks around door frames.

Having invested in the latest practice management systems . We always give sellers a SRA property lawyer who will go the extra mile to communicate with the entire property chain for example landlords, to bring about a fast home move.

Q.

The vendor has unfortunately added dormer windows on the property which I think may defy Radstock conservation area rules.

A.

A lawyer is required to ascertain if the property is inside a designated conservation area, and if so whether any alterations have necessary consent from the Lewisham planning authority.

Q.

Why does Lewisham sale conveyancing take such a long time? Is it not simply form-filling?

A.

Conveyancing in Lewisham will sometimes be exposed to significant delays. Homeward Legal understand how unnecessarily stressful these delays can be and strive to minimise the burden of these delays by driving the sale or purchase forward.
