Q.

I need to find a property lawyer that offers cheap conveyancing in Sanderstead. What should I check?

A.

Many homeowners seeking discount conveyancing are caught out by the lure of very low conveyancing rates. Many conveyancers purport to offer 'the cheapest conveyancing quotes', but additional charges are frequently hidden in the solicitor's terms. Additional fees found in terms of engagement should be fair and clearly defined. Your conveyancing quote should also clearly state costs to be paid to third parties, like the local authority, (disbursments).The Homeward Legal quote calculator will confirm the solicitors' fees, based on the property you are buying.

Q.

Do we need to plan for gazumping?

A.

Gazumping occurs when an offer is accepted but then rejected by the property seller and then selecting another buyer's offer. Although being gazumped is less common in a declining market, there will always be a chance. The first step in reducing the chance that gazumping will effect you is to instruct a conveyancing solicitor early.

Q.

Is a Homebuyer Report sensible when buying a home?

A.

It is suggested that property purchasers order a property survey. A wide range of concerns will impact a property. These can include settlement. Such issues will not be considered during the conveyancing work itself.

Q.

The residence being purchased is on a ex-industrial site. Is rubidium soil contamination likely?

A.

Restrictions exist to curtail soil contamination, but some will remain in the environment for decades. Land may also be contaminated by other sources, including disinfection by-products.

Q.

How do we avoid paying stamp duty?

A.

Homeward Legal do not advise purchasers arrange any stamp duty mitigation scheme, as such schemes are expensive and very risky. There have been a number of government-sponsored schemes, such as relief for buyers in 'disadvantaged areas', and your solicitor will advise if these may apply.

Q.

What are our options if we invest in a converted house inside a Croydon local authority conservation area ?

A.

An integral part of the due diligence for buyers includes ordering of LLC1 searches of the Croydon authority to identify conservation area status and the requisite permission for developments. .

Q.

What will conveyancing searches be?

A.

With a Homeward Legal solicitor, conveyancing clients are required to pay at a maximum £249 for a standard search bundle.

Q.

Will we need a chancel search if we are purchasing in the parish of Cloudesley Square, near Sanderstead?

A.

The solicitor responsible for your move may suggest that a chancel search is ordered, regardless of the parish where the property being bought is found. Although some parish councils have exercised their right to exact chancel repairs on current owners of land subject to chancel liability, a conveyancing solicitor cannot verify that a parish in which lay rectors have not been expected to pay chancel repair dues recently will remain liability-free for new owners.
