Q.

How do we get the best conveyancing rates for a £139k property?

A.

Numerous law firms claim to offer theoretically cheap conveyancing quotes, but additional charges can increase your final bill. Extras needs to be fair and clearly defined.

Our quotes offer a clear statement of your solicitors fees for a standard purchase or sale.

What are our options if buying a period home within a Merton local authority designated conservation area ?

A.

Part of the due diligence for buyers includes the application for searches of Merton local authority to ascertain conservation area status and the appropriate consent for alterations. In the event that no local authority consents be in evidence, your Merton Park conveyancer will give you professional advice on all options such as buying an indemnity insurance policy or seeking retrospective approval from the planning authority.

Q.

In a few months we are intending to be finally moving from our detached building in Merton Park into our next house in Copse Hill , at what stage to choose a house removal firm?
