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.

Topaz Finance is going to be our mortgage lender, what do I need to check?

A.

When taking out a mortgage, the lender will require legal work to be carried out. Buyers should be aware that a small number of lenders have reduced the number of firms on their approved panel, which may result in greater legal costs for purchasers. Homeward Legal, though, can act for all major CML-approved lenders to keep legal costs to a minimum.

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.

Q.

If I am buying in Sanderstead, do you recommend that we get a search for chancel liability?

A.

Owners of property in Sanderstead may be subject to chancel repair liability. Indemnity policies can be arranged if chancel liability is likely to be enforced. Churches in the area include All Saints' Parish Church and St Mary.

Q.

What kind of analysis regarding the risk of local flooding in Croydon will my conveyancer in Sanderstead report back to us on an investment property I am buying?

A.

Your conveyancing lawyer will carry out standard protocol environmental searches, which include Sanderstead flood risk area information. A significantly more detailed search (e.g. Landmark) will often be proposed by a Sanderstead solicitor if in the event that the initial searches highlight any risk of flooding. At the time of writing (03/01/13) reports on the UK Environment Agency do not reveal any flood warnings in the Sanderstead area.

Q.

Does your firm carry out auction conveyancing in Sanderstead?

A.

Homeward Legal is very knowledgeable with residential property auction procedures. Our specialist solicitors and conveyancers have in the past been instructed by many buyers and sellers at local residential property auctions like Acuitus, Allsop (Commercial), Allsop (Residential), Auction House London, Award Property, Barnett Ross, Baxtons, Brendons Auctioneers, Countrywide Property Auctions and Drivers Norris.

Savvy buyers at auction always instruct an experienced conveyancing firm as early as possible to allow adequate time for a detailed review. well before the auction day arrives. Immediately following the actual auction, your lawyer will need to be fully prepared to finish the purchase in less than 28 days as required by the terms and conditions of sale.

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.

The estate agent has referred the property solicitor. Do I need to use this firm?

A.

It is common practice for agents in Marks Gate to endorse a solicitors firm. Such referrals should be considered carefully, as some agents choose whichever firm pays the most per referral, not the law firm with the best reputation.
