Q.

What are the best rates for conveyancing for a £791k residence?

A.

Many online and high street firms promote so-called 'the cheapest conveyancing quotes', however extra fees are often hiding in the solicitor's terms. Your Selhurst conveyancing quote should, in addition, define costs to be paid to third parties, e.g. the Land Registry, (disbursements). Extra costs included in your solicitor's terms ought to be fair and clearly defined.

Q.

The property being purchased is on a brownfield site. Could the soil be contaminated by industrial waste?

A.

Even where some contamination has occurred in Selhurst, risk levels are usually low. Metal contamination of top-soil in Selhurst is more likely to occur near former industrial sites. Data on other contaminants, like groundwater contamination and hazardous gases, will also be included in an environmental search.

Q.

Do I need to get searches for chancel liability? I am buying a Selhurst property near a 13th Century 'church furlong'.

Property owners proximate to churches are expected to contribute towards repairs, as a result of chancel repair liability. Several sources are used to determine liability in Selhurst, including the Title Register database.

Q.

Fixtures and fittings include what?

A.

In the main, fixtures are permanently fixed to walls, floors or ceilings and fixtures are easier to detach or remove. Completion or agreement of a fixtures and fittings form is unfortunately often left to the last minute, when a dispute may jeopordise the transaction, and which can make the completion of a fixtures and fitting form necessary.

Q.

What does the searches generally cost?

A.

The cost of conveyancing searches significantly varies. Searches are disbursements paid to a third party, and will be charged at cost.

Q.

Is there any comprehensive over the web record on the Selhurst conservation areas?

A.

Local Selhurst conservation areas, such as property boundaries, side extensions or street posts etc. are handled by Croydon. English Heritage, a government body, maintain a detailed list about the state of repair of conservation areas in Croydon and throughout England as well as the risk of standards slipping.

Q.

Will the conveyancing solicitor in Selhurst carry out any searches on the London thirties detached home I am intending to purchase?

A.

When you are taking out a mortgage the lender mandates at least specific searches, including these searches - Local Authority (council), Drainage Search (Con29DW or personal) and Environmental and, depending on certain criteria, specific local Selhurst searches, like a Chancel.

Q.

If we are purchasing near Selhurst, in the parish of Harmondsworth, do we need a chancel search?

A.

The solicitor instructed to handle the transaction might recommend a chancel search. In older areas of Selhurst, chancel repair has the potential to be imposed on owners of a property where church councils may have not done so in the past. Even if liability is unlikely, indemnity insurance is a sensible precaution.
