Q.

How do I get fixed rate conveyancing?

A.

Confusion over this matter catches out many buyers, and can leave them paying far more in conveyancing fees than they budgeted, and many firms purport to offer theoretically 'the cheapest conveyancing quotes'. Unfortunately additional costs will be included in the terms of engagement which unwary buyers fail to check. Your Mitcham conveyancing quote should list third party costs, termed disbursements, to be paid.

Q.

Should we get a chancel search if I plan to purchase in the parish of Exminster, near Mitcham?

A.

Your property lawyer may suggest that a chancel search be taken out. Through some Parochial Church Councils have chosen to charge chancel repairs on the owners of land subject to chancel liability, a conveyancing solicitor cannot verify that a parish which has not imposed liability will not continue to be so, so it can be difficult to use this as a guide.

Q.

For what reason does the conveyancing work require weeks?

A.

The legal work required to buy or sell a home may be subject to numerous interruptions or delays. Homeward Legal endeavour to reduce their effect by proactively handling all enquiries. Delays include a slow firm acting for the lender.

Q.

Is Mitcham soil likely to remain contaminated by beryllium (Be)?

A.

There are extensive regulations in place in order to limit soil contamination. Environment search results will factor contaminants, including metals and others such as radioactive waste and water contaminants such as solvents.

Q.

In respect of the worrying amount of flooding in the UK in April 2012, we are wondering whether property environmental searches aren't thorough enough?

A.

A diligent Mitcham solicitor will suggest that you get flood searches if the first searches flag up a Mitcham flood risk.

Q.

Does the lawyer in Mitcham conduct any searches on the London Edwardian end-of-terrace house we are buying?

A.

If buying and getting a mortgage lender expects specific searches, including these searches - Local Authority (personal or official), Drainage Search (Con29DW or personal) and Environmental, as well as any specific searches for example a SIM.

Q.

What kind of investigation regarding the risk of a flood at Merton will the Mitcham conveyancing solicitor look over on a Sixties property we are going to purchase?

A.

An experienced property lawyer makes an application for formal conveyancing and environmental searches, which include Mitcham area flood risk data. Also as an additional measure the property solicitor in Mitcham may recommend a more detailed in-depth search.
