Q.

We are looking for a fixed rate conveyancing estimate. What should we check?

A.

Misleading conveyancing quotes catch out many property buyers and sellers, leaving them to pay sometimes £100s more than planned. Many property lawyers offer cheap conveyancing, however additional costs can increase the final bill. Your quote should also state the disbursements to be paid.We provide quotes, not estimates, and clearly state the fees for a standard conveyancing.

Q.

Our agent has put forward the conveyancing solicitor. Is it risky to use this solicitor?

A.

The Brislington agent will push a conveyancing solicitor. However, if they are paid a referral fee, an agent may decide to recommend the solicitor willing to pay the highest referral fee, not the most appropriate choice.

Q.

Is it necessary that I get a chancel search if we are buying in Mottingham?

A.

Property owners in Mottingham may be subject to chancel repair liability. A chancel search is employed to check whether such a liability exists. The solicitor handling your conveyancing will be able to advise as to whether a chancel search is necessary. Mottingham church properties include St Alban, St Andrew and St Edward the Confessor.

Q.

How do we bypass paying SDLT rates?

A.

SDLT is generally payable for home purchases sold for over £125,000. Homeward Legal do not recommend buyers arrange any stamp duty mitigation. Such schemes are expensive and very risky.

Q.

Is there a government body some published record the status of the conservation areas in Mottingham?

A.

English Heritage, a government body, have produced information of the state of conservation areas as well as the trend. Local Mottingham conservation area issues such as private spaces, addition of hard standings to the front of houses or street clutter are handled by Bromley.

Q.

What fact finding into the risk of floods in the Bromley region will a conveyancing solicitor in Mottingham advise us on?

A.

Your property conveyancing solicitor applies for official environmental searches, which include Mottingham flood risk information. A substantially more thorough flood risk search, such as the Homecheck search, might be advocated by a qualified property solicitor in Mottingham if in the event that the environmental search indicate a risk of flooding. A recent check (02-Nov-11) there were no warnings around the at the River Quaggy at Chinbrook, Mottingham and Eltham, London Boroughs of Bromley, Lewisham and Greenwich

Q.

What should we do regarding manganese (Mn) soil contamination in Mottingham?

A.

Metal contamination may have occurred throughout Mottingham, but some very localised cases of contamination in Mottingham may pose unacceptably high risk. Metal contamination of soil in Mottingham is more likely to occur near waste treatment sites. Data on other contaminants, like herbicides and water contaminants such as phenols, will also be included in an environmental search.
