Q.

Although there are lots of £99 fixed quotes online, how do we find a reputable one? We are looking for affordable conveyancing in South Norwood.

A.

Various conveyancers offer supposedly 'the cheapest conveyancing quotes', but additional fees may inflate the solicitor's invoice. The quote should state any disbursements to be paid.

Q.

When should we instruct a solicitor to act on our purchase?

A.

The short answer is, the sooner the better. Some authors advocate postponing instruction until a chain is completed, but doing so will put you at a disadvantage compared to better prepared buyers, or if your buyer decides to pull out due to delays.

Q.

We are going to buy a property, and have a conveyancing quote from you. Could we be charged any extra fees?

A.

No. Homeward Legal will not charge any hidden fees for your standard conveyancing. Some solicitor do not give accurate quotes, only estimates. You may face a much greater total fee when you have completed.

Q.

Which environmental factors can contaminate land in South Norwood. Are these comprehensively investigated?

A.

Several contaminants can affect residential property in South Norwood, like local waste transfer sites and pollution incidents. An environmental search will reveal this in more detail.

Q.

As a result of the serious flooding in the UK in April 2012 I am asking whether conveyancing and environmental searches may not be detailed enough?

A.

An experienced South Norwood conveyancing solicitor should always carry out in depth conveyancing searches from Landmark if the first search flags up any kind of risk of flooding in South Norwood

For greater history you can converse with a neighbour or local resident.

Q.

How could South Norwood property legal work take months to complete?

A.

The conveyancing process could experience delays. Homeward Legal work hard to curtail the consequences of these delays, where possible, by, for example, ordering searches as early as possible. Delays include difficulties with mortgage finance.

Q.

We are purchasing in South Norwood. Should we have searches carried out?

A.

Conveyancing searches are enquiries carried out on behalf of the party intending to buy the property, for example a chancel search. Conveyancing searches are very informative, but refer to legal facets of the purchase.

Q.

Does a South Norwood conveyancer do any conveyancing searches on the London Fifties terraced property I want to buy?

A.

If purchasing and taking out a mortgage, your lender will expect at least a specified set of searches, including these searches - Local Authority, Drainage and Water Search (CON29DW or personal) and Environmental, and occasionally special local South Norwood searches such as HS38.
