Q.

I am looking for the cheapest conveyancing solicitors in Millwall. What are the risks?

A.

Several solicitors purport to offer theoretically cheap conveyancing quotes. Unfortunately additional charges are often hiding in the terms and conditions. Costs found in the terms should be clearly defined. Our quotes clearly state the solicitors' fees for a standard conveyancing transaction.

Q.

How many lenders in Millwall do you work with?

A.

The Homeward Legal partnership have worked with all the major lenders assisting Millwall buyers. Local mortgage lenders and brokers include Instant Mortgages Ltd, 376 High Rd, Woodford Green, IG8 0XQ, Direct Mortgage Centre, 87 Burdett Rd, London, E3 4JN, and Essence Finance Agent, Basement Office/8 Fordham St, London, E1 1HS.

Q.

What are the alternatives if we acquire a period home within a Lewisham council designated conservation area ?

Part of the property legal involves ordering of LLC1 searches of Lewisham council to see conservation area status and consent for any development. These are not fees and are charged at cost to the client.

Q.

Will I need a home buyers survey for our house purchase in Millwall?

A.

The Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors firmly recommend that Millwall property purchasers book a house survey. A wide range of defects have a negative impact on a property. These include cracks in walls or chimney defects, and these will not be addressed by your conveyancing solicitor.

Q.

For a fast exchange and completion to buy a £288,000 property, what should we ensure to speed up the conveyancing process?

A.

The key to a fast conveyancing transaction is to instruct a proactive, diligent conveyancing solicitor. Additionally, there are several tasks you, as the purchaser, could do to get moving sooner, such as, calling or emailing the conveyancing solicitor, and chase them if you suspect any delays, answering any queries raised by the conveyancing solicitor as soon as possible and confirming your mortgage offer.

Q.

My husband and I are buying in Millwall. Are there many conservation areas in the area?

A.

The regions in or near Millwall will include a range of areas of architectural or historic interest defined as areas of conservation. The benefits of such restrictions will include protection against unsympathetic development, but they can result in the buyer inheriting liability of unauthorised changes.

Q.

I've had a quote from you. Are there any additional fees?

A.

We do not charge any hidden fees to transact a property. Your quote is an accurate price.

Q.

Is there a government body any detailed public info about the conservation areas in Millwall?

A.

English Heritage, a government body, administer records about the state of repair of conservation areas along with the trend. Local Millwall conservation areas, such as building materials used, the painting of houses or street guard rails etc. are managed by the local authority (Lewisham).
