What are the best rates for conveyancing for a £742k house?


Numerous solicitors claim to offer supposedly 'the cheapest conveyancing quotes'. However extra fees will be included in the solicitor's terms of engagement. These terms are often ignored by excited buyers, eager to get underway. Our quotes clearly state all legal fees for a standard conveyancing transaction.


What are the issues if we invest in a home in a Wandsworth local authority designated conservation area ?


An integral part of the conveyancing process includes ordering of LLC1 searches of Wandsworth local authority to determine conservation area status and the existence of consent for any changes. These are charged as a disbursement. If no authority consents be in evidence, your conveyancing solicitor will give you professional advice on the alternatives which can include taking out an indemnity insurance or getting retrospective consent from Wandsworth planning authority.


Will I need a building survey for this property purchase in New Covent Garden?


It is suggested that buyers arrange a property survey. A range problems can negatively affect a property, which include failed double glazing. Such issues will not be considered during the conveyancing work itself.


I am worried about the council tax amounts on a Sixties end of terrace property in New Covent Garden, how much are they?

For fast conveyancing on the purchase of a £272,000 house, what should we do?


Firstly, instructing a proactive and experienced lawyer is the key to moving faster. Ask these questions when identifying your conveyancer:

  • Do they offer 'instant' online quotes?
  • Are phone, fax and email their preferred methods of contact
  • How soon will they order searches?


Is there any information about the conservation areas in New Covent Garden?
