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


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.


We are purchasing a £489000. How is Stamp Duty Land Tax rates calculated?


SDLT is dependent on the property's price. For a residential property in Sanderstead bought for £489000, SDLT is £14670 (source:, August 2012).


I really need fast solicitors in Sanderstead, is that you guys?

Commonly lawyers can be far too slow which can add unnecessary annoyance to the property moving process.

With us, solicitors are focused on speed and always communicate up the buyer and seller chain and who use state of the art local authority and land registry integrated technology to complete on the sale fast.


Do we need to plan for gazumping?


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.


How much time does I allow for the conveyancing process generally need, according to your estimates?


For most residential property, the amount of time needed to buy or sell a residence will vary, dependent on a number of issues, for example, matters where a property has a mortgage. We strive to ensure your move is undertaken as quickly as possible.


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


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.


Is a Homebuyer Report sensible when buying a home?


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.


Are there many areas of conservation in Sanderstead?


Areas deemed to be of historic or architectural significance, such as mining villages, will be recognised as conservation areas. A conveyancing lawyer will discuss the relevant responsibilities you would be taking on by purchasing in a conservation area and be able to advise further.
