Q.

How do I get a cheap solicitor quote for purchasing a property?

A.

Many solicitors purport to offer supposedly cheap conveyancing, but additional fees will be included in the small print. Fees ought to be reasonable. They only apply in cases where the lawyer must perform additional tasks , which could not be anticipated at the start of the process. The conveyancing quote should also state any disbursements to be paid.The Homeward Legal quote calculator will confirm the exact legal fees based on the property you are buying.

Q.

How does a solicitor in South London report back on the risk of local flooding in the South London region?

A.

A critical part of the conveyancing procedure of buying a property involves the conveyancer applying for conveyancing and environmental searches that go into details in relation to South London flood risk area data. A substantially more thorough set of searches (e.g Homecheck) may possibly be advocated by a conveyancing solicitor in South London if in the event that the enviro. search show that there is a potential flood risk to the property.

Q.

How do I confirm that a property is in a designated conservation area?

A.

These distinguish areas of architectural merit. Living in a conservation area can mean protection against unsympathetic development, but the restrictions may impose liability on a buyer for unauthorised alterations made by previous owners. A solicitor will discuss the relevant responsibilities.

Q.

Should we order a chancel search if I am purchasing in the parish of Hayes, near South London?

A.

The solicitor might recommend that a chancel search is ordered, regardless of the parish where the building being bought is located. Chancel repair may be imposed on the owners of a building where church councils may have not done so in the past. In the event that chancel liability may apply, your solicitor might recommend insurance rather than pulling out of the purchase.

Q.

Is a survey a good idea if we are purchasing a property, irrespective of its condition?

A.

It is highly recommended that all purchasers arrange a building survey. Buyers should be aware that there are a range of issues that affect a property, that a lender's valuation survey, for example, will not cover, which include chimney defects and cavity wall tie failure.

Q.

How early is it wise to instruct a conveyancing solicitor in South London?

A.

Generally, the earlier in the process you can instruct a solicitor, the better. The legal work can then start straight away. Promptly instructing a solicitor for your South London transaction can reduce the likelihood of your sale or purchase falling though.

Q.

Might our conveyancing charges introduce any additional costs?

A.

No. We never hide any extra, hidden charges for conveyancing in South London. Some firms only provide estimates disguised as quotes, meaning that you could pay much more when you complete.

Q.

Could South London soil be contaminated by copper (Cu)?

A.

South London industrial or agricultural can cause topsoil contamination. Other sources of contaminated land include herbicides.
