Q.

I need low cost conveyancing. What are the risks?

Numerous firms offer so-called 'the cheapest conveyancing', however additional fees will be included in the terms of engagement that buyers often do not check. Extra costs which are listed in your solicitor's terms needs to be reasonable. Our online quote calculator will generate an accurate quote for your transaction.

Q.

What does 'fixtures and fittings' include?

A.

Chiefly, there is not a clear definition of fixtures and fittings. The assumptions held by the parties may vary; this can make the clarification of any difference of opinion so important.

Q.

Will you need to get a chancel search? I am purchasing on the same street as a parson's close in Norbiton.

A.

Owners of property proximate to specific local church buildings may be required to pay for repairs. This is referred to as chancel repair liability. Owners who have bought property prior to 2003 may be totally unaware that a liability

exists if a chancel search was not carried out. A conveyancing lawyer will be able to advise as to whether a chancel search is necessary, and recommend suitable insurance. Church properties in the area include St Peter.

Q.

What analysis into the potential risk of floods in the Kingston upon Thames region will a Norbiton solicitor advise on?

A.

Your property conveyancer will carry out standard property conveyancing searches that incorporate Norbiton historical flood risk data. A more in-depth flood risk search (e.g Homecheck) might be suggested by your property solicitor in Norbiton, if in the event that the initial searches indicate a potential flood risk to the property.

Q.

Will the report on title compiled by the Norbiton conveyancing solicitor report back on the cost of the council tax for a Band F apartment before exchanging contracts?

A.

A property solicitor will approach the council to ask about the correct council tax rates, which should then be added to the conveyancing report on title. Up-to-date rates for Norbiton are listed at the council site.

Q.

We are buying with Lloyds TSB - what will we need to be aware of?
