Q.

How can we ensure our cheap quote is fixed? We are trying to find fixed rate New Eltham conveyancing.

A.

Several conveyancers promote theoretically 'the cheapest conveyancing', however additional costs are often hiding in the solicitor's terms. Any additional costs needs to be reasonable.

Q.

How many weeks will conveyancing to sell a home take, in your experience? I am buying in New Eltham.

A.

For the majority of buyers and sellers, the number of weeks required to sell or purchase a residence may vary, with reference to numerous legal considerations including whether it is a leasehold property being transferred. For most firms in England and Wales, the average is between 8 to 12 weeks, whereas our solicitors deliver results within six weeks, if possible.

Q.

Should we get a chancel search if I plan to purchase in the parish of Greenford?

A.

A conveyancing lawyer could recommend a chancel search, regardless of the parish in which the residence being purchased is found. Through some church councils have taken the decision to charge chancel repairs on new owners of affected property,

it cannot be guaranteed that a parish in which lay rectors have not been expected to pay chancel repair dues recently will continue to be free from liability. Even if liability is unlikely, indemnity insurance is a sensible precaution.

Q.

Is a deed of postponement passed on at cost?

A.

Unscrupulous firms hide fees which should be included as disbursements. It is not always clear whether a cost is a disbursement or not, and if it ought to be included. This charge is a fee not a disbursement, and should be included in your quote.

Q.

What sort of enquiries in respect to the risk of possible flooding around Greenwich will my lawyer in New Eltham check out?

A.

An important part of the conveyancing protocol of buying a property involves your conveyancer conducting conveyancing and environmental searches that provide you with some details about the risk of flooding in New Eltham.

Q.

Will High Speed Two affect Shard End property?

A.

Yes. Phase 1 of HS2 is likely to affect property in Shard End's local authority, and Shard End owners living near the proposed line having to accept considerable disruption during HS2's construction.

Q.

In a few weeks I am hoping to be finally moving from our semi detached home near New Eltham into a new flat in Avery Hill at what point to choose a house removal firm?

A.

Most solicitors tend to recommend that house movers delay arranging removals until exchange of contracts as in all probability an absolute home moving date will not have been formalised. Local removals companies include Eltham, Unit 5 Avery Hill Rd, London, SE9 2BD Phone: 0845 669 3572 or Son Of A Gun Removals, 59 Packmores Rd, London, SE9 2NA Tel: 07837 813996.

Q.

If I am buying in New Eltham, do I need to get a chancel search?

A.

Property owners near to nearby church land must contribute towards the cost of repairs, where chancel repair liability exists. Owners who have bought property prior to 2003 may be totally unaware that a liability exists if a chancel search was not carried out. Your conveyancing solicitor will suggest an appropriate indemnity policy to address chancel liability. New Eltham church lands include All Saints.
