Q.

Are additional fees applied? I need a fixed rate conveyancing quote.

A.

Many solicitors advertise so-called 'the cheapest conveyancing quotes', but extra charges are often hiding in the solicitor's terms of engagement. Any additional charges found in terms of engagement should be fair. They be applied only where your solicitor must complete unanticipated additional work in your interest, which could not be anticipated at the start of the process. The disbursements to be paid should be included on the conveyancing quote based on the property you intend to buy, our online quote calculator will generate an accurate statement of conveyancing fees.

Q.

Should I opt for the conveyancing suggested by the estate agent?

A.

The Headington agent may endorse a law firm. These referrals should be considered carefully, as the agent may recommend whichever firm pays the most per referral, not a firm with local expertise and a solid reputation.

Q.

I want to find fast Penge conveyancers - is that you guys?

A.

Typically home moving law firms are apathetic which creates even more stress to the house selling process. Our lawyers will always communicate up and down

the property chain and use leading edge software and IT systems to exchange on your move to your preferred move date.

Q.

We are selling in Penge, and have had a conveyancing quote from you. Could there be any hidden charges?

A.

No. Homeward Legal's solicitors never charge any extra, hidden fees.

Q.

Barclays Bank will be our lender - is there anything I need to check?

A.

House buyers need to be aware that some lenders are now reducing the size of their 'solicitor panel', potentially creating higher legal costs for house purchasers. Homeward Legal are able to act for all large lenders so that the buyer will not have to pay legal costs to your lender's solicitor.

Q.

What are the alternatives if purchasing a flat in a Bromley local authority conservation area ?

A.

An integral part of conveyancing involves the making of enquiries of Bromley planning authority to confirm conservation area status and the requisite permission for any modifications. In the event that no necessary permissions be available, your Penge conveyancing solicitor will give you professional advice on the options for example buying an indemnity insurance policy or seeking retrospective consent from the appropriate local authority.

Q.

Is there a government body any thorough published record on the Penge conservation areas?

A.

Local Penge conservation areas e.g. paths and footpaths, rear extensions or rundown streets are presided over by the local Bromley planning authority. English Heritage administer a list in relation to the condition of conservation areas along with the vulnerability.

Q.

My husband and I are buying in Penge. How do I verify if the house is in a conservation area?

A.

Conservation areas specify neighbourhoods of historic or architectural significance. The local council will advise further about local conservation areas, and the conveyancing lawyer handling your purchase should discuss what specific restrictions are in place.
