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.

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.

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.

Q.

Doing ones own conveyancing without instructing a lawyer in Norbury is becoming possible as a buyer and seller of a home. Would it actually be a money saving idea ?

A.

Legally speaking there is absolutely no reason why a home buyer should not conduct conveyancing yourself. However, a property lawyer takes care of a long list of exercises including chasing deeds or representing the lender which really need a qualified solicitor. Furthermore lawyers must carry suitable indemnity cover to shield you from any failures.

Q.

What are the pitfalls if we buy a converted house within the boundary of a Lambeth planning authority conservation area ?

A.

An integral part of the legal process includes procurement of searches of Lambeth planning authority to determine conservation area status and consent for any developments. Should no local authority consents be available your solicitor will inform you of the options which can include seeking an indemnity insurance policy or getting retrospective permission from Lambeth council.

Q.

When in the process should you instruct a solicitor?

A.

If you choose a firm with 'no move, no fee' protection, the earlier, the better, as the legal work can commence immediately. Some groups advocate postponing instruction until an offer has been firmly agreed, but delays can risk the other side pulling out, particularly in uncertain market conditions.

Q.

We are planning to buy in Norbury. Are there many conservation areas in the area?

A.

The areas in or near Norbury will include a number of conservation areas. A solicitor will discuss what specific restrictions are in place.

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.
