Q.

What are the best rates for conveyancing for a £586,000 residence?

A.

Several law firms claim to offer so-called cheap conveyancing quotes, however extra fees are frequently hidden in the terms and conditions. Additional fees should be fair and clearly defined. They be applicable solely where your solicitor must complete work beyond standard conveyancing on your behalf, which could not be anticipated at the start of the process. A conveyancing quote should state any disbursements.Our quotes clearly state the solicitors' fees for a standard conveyancing transaction.

Q.

As a result of the fact that 2012 was second wettest year since on record we are asking if environmental searches won't be sufficient?

A.

Flood risk searches applied for by the property lawyer in South East London should also include a far more specialist search (Landmark) if the risk is deemed significant.

If you are concerned why not approach a local resident.

Q.

We are buying a £901000 property in South East London, how is stamp duty calculated?

A.

The Stamp Duty that is payable will rely on the valuation. On a £901000 property, stamp duty will be £36040.*

*This information correct as of August 2012

Q.

Is a Homebuyer Report required when purchasing a house in South East London?

A.

Homeward Legal heavily advise that home buyers in South East London instruct a home surveyor to perform a survey. Numerous issues will impact a property, which include dry rot.

Q.

Should you get a chancel search? We are buying a apartment in South East London.

A.

Property owners near to church property in the locality may be required to subsidise repairs. This is referred to as chancel repair liability. Owners who have bought property prior to 2003 may be totally unaware that a liability exists if a chancel search was not carried out. The solicitor handling your conveyancing will confirm that a chancel search is appropriate.

Q.

We are intending to buy in South East London. Are there any conservation areas in the area?

A.

Conservation areas characterise streets and neighbourhoods of historic or architectural significance. Your lawyer will be able to provide more details.

Q.

Why does conveyancing take months to complete?

A.

South East London conveyancing could be delayed, we, however, seek to minimise their consequences whenever feasible. Common delays may include a slow firm acting for the lender.

Q.

If I buy a book about DIY conveyancing as a buyer of a house. Would it be a false economy to carry out the legals myself?

A.

There are no arguments why a home mover cant apply this approach and embark on the legal work without a qualified lawyer in South East London. In reality however, a South East London conveyancer is in charge of a long list of assignments e.g. chasing mortgage offer or identifying conservation area breaches which require a qualified solicitor.
