Q.

How do we identify a genuinely cheap fee? We are trying to find a discount conveyancing quote.

A.

The confusion over what is, and is not, included in a 'cheap' quote leaves many property buyers and sellers paying out more than they anticipated in the end. Many firms advertise cheap conveyancing quotes. Unfortunately extra costs may be added into the solicitor's terms. A conveyancing quote should state costs to be paid to third parties, like the local authority, (disbursements). Any additional costs which are listed in the terms should be clearly defined. Our quotes are not estimates, stating all the solicitors fees you will pay for a standard sale or purchase.

Q.

Is a property survey a good idea when buying a property in South Lambeth?

A.

It is strongly advised that the majority of purchasers in South Lambeth arrange a surveyor when purchasing in South Lambeth. It is a fact that there are a range of concerns that can affect a property, which a conveyancing solicitor will not report on, which include cracks in walls.

Q.

We plan to buy a chapel in the parish of St Marylebone Holy Trinity. Should we order a chancel search?

A.

Regardless of the South Lambeth parish you are buying in, the property solicitor is likely to recommend that a chancel search is taken out. Chancel repair has the potential to be imposed on owners of a residence where parish councils have not imposed the same liability on the last owners, so indemnity insurance may be advisable even if liability is unlikely.

Q.

Bookshops and the web have an increasing number helpful articles about by passing the solicitor. Do I really need to spend money on a conveyancing solicitor in South Lambeth ?

A.

There are no arguments why you cant opt to take care of the legal work without the help of an experienced solicitor in South Lambeth. The truth is however that a lawyer carries out a huge array of activities ranging from chasing replies to enquiries or notifying parties of completion many of which are more safely handled with appropriate a qualified solicitor.

Q.

I am buying in South Lambeth. Are there any designated conservation areas?

A.

With over eight thousand areas of conservation throughout the country, the regions in or near South Lambeth include a range of areas of historical merit designated as protected. A property solicitor will discuss what specific restrictions are in place and be able to advise further.

Q.

What are the pitfalls if we buy a building inside a Southwark council designated conservation area ?

A.

An integral part of the due diligence for buyers involves the making of enquiries of the Southwark authority to determine conservation area status and the existence of consent for changes. If no necessary permissions be in evidence, your solicitor will inform you of the alternatives for example obtaining an indemnity insurance policy or obtaining retrospective permission from Southwark council.

Q.

In relation to the fact that 2012 was second wettest year since 1920 we are questioning whether flood searches won't be thorough enough?

A.

A qualified lawyer in South Lambeth will advise you to get additional in depth environmental searches if the environmental searches spots a any kind of South Lambeth flood risk.

For more peace of mind you can always contact a local resident.

Q.

We are shortly going to be finally moving from our semi detached property on the outskirts of South Lambeth into a new house in West Norwood , what is the right point to select a home removal firm?

A.

We usually advise that you delay organising removals until formal exchange of contracts as in all probability the firm date will not have been set.
