Q.

How do I find a cheap solicitor for selling property?

A.

Several solicitors claim to offer 'the cheapest conveyancing quotes'. Often extra charges are often hiding in small print. The quote ought to list third party costs, termed disbursements, to be paid. Any costs listed in terms of engagement needs to be reasonable and clear. Our quotes offer a clear statement of your solicitors fees for a standard purchase or sale.

Q.

What type of analysis concerning the potential risk of a flood in the Croydon region will my solicitor in Norbury give an account of on a Victorian property we are buying?

A.

A property lawyer will carry out official conveyancing searches that will include Norbury flood risk area data. On (24-Dec-12) there were no warnings around the River Wandle Catchment at the Low-lying land and roads between Izaak Walton and Rocester on the River Dove and between Carsington Dam and Mayfield on the Henmore Brook

Q.

We are aiming to purchase a newly-constructed home. Is it significant that searches are ordered?

These searches are a commonly-used collection of queries requested by the purchaser's property solicitor. These searches provide much needed information, however they refer to the legal aspects of the purchase.

Q.

What can my conveyancing searches in Norbury cost?

A.

Searches range in cost. Conveyancing searches are disbursements, and are charged at cost.

Q.

When you are purchasing in Norbury, is it necessary that I get a chancel liability search?

A.

Repair costs resulting from chancel liability can total hundreds of thousands of pounds. A chancel search is employed to check whether such a liability exists. Liability is more common in some parts of the country. A solicitor will be able to advise as to whether a chancel search is necessary, and recommend suitable insurance. Church lands in the area include All Saints, S.Peter, St Mary & St Barlock and St Oswald.

Q.

Does your company manage the conveyancing of auction properties in Norbury?

A.

Our company is familiar with auction buyers and sellers. Often specialist auction lots e. g. property that cannot be mortgaged, are included in property auctions which need deeper due diligence. We therefore advise that buyers at auction select a lawyer before the day of the auction to give enough time for a thorough review of the legal papers for the lot.

Immediately following the property auction date, a lawyer will need to be geared up to conclude the auction conveyancing process in less than 28 days as conventionally required by the terms and conditions of sale.

Q.

Is Norbury top-soil potentially contaminated by aluminium (Al)?

A.

Norbury industry, agriculture and the natural environment can cause top-soil contamination. Data on many contaminants, such as groundwater contaminants like organic compounds, will be included in an environmental search.

Q.

Do we need to be concerned about fixtures and fittings?

A.

There is not a strict definition of fixtures and fittings, which can result in conflict once the new owner takes possession. Completion or agreement of a fixtures and fittings form is unfortunately often left to the last minute, when a dispute may jeopordise the transaction.
