Q.

Merton points of interest

A.

Brixton London Windmill, London National Portrait Gallery Art Gallery and Temple Middle Temple Hall Historic Building are situated in Merton.

The nearest hospital to Merton is Royal London Homeopathic.

Q.

Can you confirm your cheapest fee for a £772k property? We need to find affordable conveyancing.

A.

Many online and high street solicitors claim to offer supposedly 'the cheapest conveyancing quotes'. Unfortunately additional fees are often hiding in the small print. Third party costs, termed disbursements, to be paid should be included on a quote. Our quotes clearly state all legal fees for a standard conveyancing transaction.

Q.

We are buying a property where the seller has unfortunately fitted inappropriate window frames on the maisonette which I think might break Four Oaks conservation area rules.

A.

The property lawyer will carry out searches find out whether the property is inside a conservation area, and if so, whether any modifications have appropriate permission from the local authority.

Q.

Which local authority looks after Merton?

A.

Merton is located in London Borough of Merton Council, Merton Civic Centre, London Road, Morden, Surrey, SM4 5DX, Call: 020 8274 4905

Q.

If I am buying in the parish of Cheriton Bishop, should we order a chancel search?

A.

Whether you are buying a home in Merton or elsewhere in the county, the conveyancing lawyer could advise that a chancel search be taken out. In Merton's much older areas, chancel repair may be imposed on current owners of a home where parish councils have not imposed the same liability on the last owners. In the event that chancel liability may apply, your solicitor might recommend insurance rather than pulling out of the purchase.

Q.

What sort of additional enquiries into the risk of floods around South West London will a lawyer in Merton report back to us on for a seventies property we are intending to purchase?

A.

A qualified solicitor makes an application for property conveyancing searches that should include Merton flood risk area data.

Q.

I need to exchange contracts on the conveyancing on a leasehold apartment within 4 weeks, are you fast property lawyers in Merton ?

A.

We believe that our active lawyers adopt a highly efficient method to concluding the legal process Homeward Legals approach is to use modern workflow systems .

More importantly we always allocate you a conveyancing property lawyer prepared to communicate up and down the buyer and seller property chain .

Q.

I am purchasing in Merton with Derbyshire Home Loans, is there anything I need to be aware of?

A.

Until recently, most solicitors could act for the majority lenders. Some lenders have reduced their 'solicitor panel', which may result in increased legal costs for property buyers. We will act on behalf of many UK mortgage lenders.

Q.

Flood risk searches may be standard procedure but in light of recent weather changes for instance the terrible flooding in the UK in April 2012 are they sufficient to establish sufficient information about the ever changing Merton flood risk area?

A.

Conveyancing searches carried out by a property lawyer in Merton will also include the far more specialist flood search if it is felt necessary.

If you are still anxious it may be worth trying to contact a neighbour or local resident.
