Q.

How do we get the cheapest Plumstead conveyancing quote?

A.

Many online and high street conveyancers purport to offer so-called 'the cheapest conveyancing quotes'. Often additional charges are often hiding in the terms. This small print is often not read by home owners in a hurry. Any disbursements should also be included on a conveyancing quote. Get a quote using the Homeward Legal quote calculator for the property you are buying.

Q.

Would ordering a house survey be required when purchasing a property?

A.

Homeward Legal firmly recommend that all purchasers instruct a surveyor to carry out a survey. There can be a wide range of defects which have a negative impact on a property, which will not be addressed during a property valuation. These can include failed double glazing and roof damage.

Q.

When in the process do you need to instruct a solicitor?

A.

Generally, as soon as possible, as there are a number of tasks which may be carried out immediately. Instructing your solicitor earlier can reduce any chance of the sale or purchase aborting.

Q.

May our conveyancing quote have any hidden costs?

A.

We never hide any additional charges to buy or sell a home.

Q.

What is the council tax on a period converted property in Plumstead?

A.

More often than not the conveyancing report on title should give the relevant Greenwich council tax band. Correct rates for properties in Plumstead are detailed on the Greenwich council website. On, 09/08/2012, the different rates are:

  • Band A - £859.00
  • Band B - £1,002.00
  • Band C - £1,145.00
  • Band D - £1,288.00
  • Band E - £1,574.00
  • Band F - £1,860.00
  • Band G - £2,146.00
  • Band H - £2,576.00

Q.

What type of conveyancing searches into the risk of floods to properties in Greenwich will the conveyancing solicitor in Plumstead do for a buy to let home we are purchasing?

A.

Your property solicitor conducts official environmental searches that incorporate Plumstead flood risk area data. As an additional measure, a conveyancer in Plumstead will sometimes advise an inexpensive (around twenty pounds) and more search. At the time of writing (05-Dec-08) there were no warnings around the Tidal Thames from Erith High Street East to Woolwich Arsenal at the River Thames including areas in the boroughs of Bexley and Greenwich

Q.

What are the alternatives if we invest in a Plumstead home in a Greenwich planning authority designated conservation area ?

A.

An integral part of the due diligence for buyers includes the making of enquiries of Greenwich planning authority to identify conservation area status and the appropriate consent for any developments. .

Q.

Flood searches may be all well and good but in light of recent flooding for example the worrying amount of flooding in the UK in April 2012 are they comfort enough to determine sufficient information about the evolving Plumstead future flood risk?

A.

A competent Plumstead conveyancing solicitor should always get environmental searches if the environmental conveyancing searches flag up a the local Plumstead flood risk
