I am looking for low cost conveyancing in Norwood Green. What should we check?


Numerous law firms advertise theoretically cheap conveyancing quotes. However extra costs can inflate your final bill. Any additional charges which are listed in terms of engagement should be fair. Your conveyancing quote should state costs to be paid to third parties, including search providers, (disbursments).Our quotes offer a clear statement of your solicitors fees for a standard purchase or sale.


When is it appropriate to instruct a conveyancing solicitor to handle our purchase?


The short answer is, the earlier, the better, as the legal work can start immediately. Early instruction of a firm to act on your Norwood Green sale or purchase for a sale can mean that information, especially from slow third-parties, can be requested even prior to accepting an offer, whereas if you are buying your offer may be taken more seriously if you already have a solicitor instructed.

Do we need to be aware of 'fixtures and fittings'?

House purchasers in Norwood Green are frequently confused by the vagueness surrounding what fixtures and fittings should be included. Completion or agreement of a fixtures and fittings form is unfortunately often left to the last minute, when a dispute may jeopordise the transaction, and which can make the clarification of any difference of opinion so important.


I am taking out a mortgage in Norwood Green with Northern Rock - is there anything I need to be aware of?


House buyers should be aware that, over the last two years, some lenders have decreased the number of firms on their approved panel. This can mean greater legal costs for house purchasers. Homeward Legal will act for many CML-approved lenders.


The internet has many books giving details on DIY conveyancing e.g. House Buying, Selling and Conveyancing: How to Save Estate Agent and Solicitor Fees When Buying or Selling Property. Do I actually need to instruct a Norwood Green property lawyer ?


There are no arguments why you should not embark on the legal work without a dedicated conveyancing solicitor in Norwood Green. In reality however, a property lawyer takes care of a significant number of assignments such as checking contracts or interpreting management accounts some of which are more safely handled with appropriate training. More importantly DIY conveyancers will be working without applicable insurance which practicing solicitors practices are required by the Law Society to possess.

What sort of analysis in relation to the risk of possible flooding at Ealing will a Norwood Green lawyer report back on?


A crucial step in the conveyancing procedure of buying a property involves a conveyancing lawyer carrying out environmental searches that go in some details about the local Norwood Green flood risk. Also as an additional measure the lawyer in Norwood Green might possibly suggest a significantly more specialist local Norwood Green area flood risk search. At the time of writing (03/02/13) reports on the Environment Agency website don’t reveal any flood warnings in the Norwood Green area.
