Does Homeward Legal advise on the legal conveyancing of auction properties in Putney Heath?


We are able to work with residential property auction protocols. Normally specialist homes such as structurally defective property, are sold at property auctions which tend to require deeper exploration before completion. Solicitors therefore advocate that buyers select their conveyancing lawyer well in advance of the property auction date so there is time for a thorough investigation of the auction legal pack.

Post day of the auction a prepared conveyancing lawyer will need to be focused on finish the purchase legal work inside the 4 week time frame as conventionally required by the terms of sale.


Is there a government body some published record on the conservation areas in Putney Heath?


English Heritage administer a detailed list about the state of conservation areas as well as the vulnerability to a decline in standards.

Local conservation areas, for instance the upkeep of public spaces, removal of existing windows or poorly maintained roads are overseen by the local authority (Merton).


What is the explanation why Putney Heath property legal work for a purchase takes so long?


The legal work required to buy or sell property may take more time. We understand how frustrating these are and seek to curtail their cost by pushing all parties involved.


Our mortgage lender will be Scottish Building Society, is there anything I need to consider?


Until recently, most conveyancing solicitors were able to undertake legal work for a lender. Buyers in Putney Heath should consider that a small number of lenders have limited the firms who can act for them, which may result in greater conveyancing costs for buyers. Homeward Legal will act on behalf of many lenders.


What are the issues if purchasing a converted house located inside a Merton local authority designated conservation area ?


Part of the legal process includes procurement of searches of the local authority to confirm conservation area status and permission for any modifications. Searches are charged without markup to the client.

In the absence of any consents the solicitor will give you professional advice on all options, which include requesting from Merton local authority or seeking cover with indemnity insurance.


What actions can we take to get out of paying for SDLT rates?


We do not recommend any stamp duty reduction scheme, as such schemes are highly expensive and can be very unlikely to succeed.
