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.

Q.

Please give reasons why conveyancing work in Merton Park takes such a long time?

A.

The conveyancing process will occasionally be subject to numerous interruptions or delays, Homeward Legal, however, endeavour to reduce the effect of these delays wherever a difference can be made by proactively handling all enquiries.

Q.

Does Homeward Legal get involved in the conveyancing for auction properties in Merton Park?

A.

We are able to act on property auction conveyancing. Often specialist lots like development land are bought in auctions which tend to need greater examination. We therefore encourage buyers at auction to choose a CQS lawyer well in advance of the auction to allow sufficient time for a detailed review of the legal papers for the lot.

Subsequently, immediately after the day of bidding, a lawyer needs to be able to concentrate on carry out the conveyancing in 28 days after exchange, a requirement of conditions of sale.

Q.

We are buying in Merton Park on a new development brownfield site. Could the soil be contaminated by industrial waste like titanium (Ti)?

A.

Even where some contamination has occurred in Merton Park, risk levels are usually low. Land may also be contaminated by other sources, including radioactive waste.

Q.

Environmental searches are conveyancing protocol but considering climate change such as the fact that last year was second wettest year since records began are they the best way to determine sufficient information about the Merton Park flood risk area?

A.

An experienced Merton Park conveyancing solicitor should always get rigorous flood searches if the environmental searches flag up a significant risk of flooding in Merton Park.
