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


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.


How much will the fee for the searches in South East London come to?


Searches range in cost. Conveyancing searches are disbursements paid to a third party.


Why does conveyancing take months to complete?


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.


How long may conveyancing need, according to your estimates? We are selling in South East London.


The number of weeks taken to buy or sell residential property can vary. This is based on potentially many issues which may affect the property including whether a mortgage lender requires particular searches. With our solicitors, your sale, purchase or remortgage is handled quickly, and to the highest standard of service.


How do we get out of paying for HMRC stamp duty?


We strongly advise against any stamp duty avoidance. Such schemes are often uneconomical and HMRC may challenge a scheme up to six years later meaning that the full stamp duty amount will be payable, with potential fines.


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


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.


Is there anything we are supposed to do to make our South East London conveyancing faster?


Crucial to buying faster is to employing a communicative lawyer. Consider the following:

  • Do they offer 'instant' online quotes?
  • Are phone, fax and email their preferred methods of contact
  • Do they order searches immediately?


Which environmental factors can contaminate land in South East London, and should they be an issue?


Residential property in South East London would be contaminated by a wide range of naturally-occurring factors. Issues like nearby waste management facilities will be detailed in an appropriate search.
