Q.

I need a lawyer that offers cheap conveyancing in South West London. What are the risks?

A.

The confusion over this matter affects many buyers who opted for a very cheap quote, only to be stung later in the conveyancing process, and many conveyancers purport to offer cheap conveyancing quotes, but extra fees are often hiding in the solicitor's terms of engagement, left unregarded by busy buyers Any disbursements to be paid ought to be defined on the conveyancing quote Fees included in terms and conditions should be reasonable and come into force only if your lawyer is required to complete extra work in your interest, which could not be anticipated at the start of the process. Our quotes clearly state the solicitors' fees for a standard conveyancing transaction.

Q.

I am buying a unique building in a designated South West London conservation area, how do I find more details in respect of the standard of repair?

A.

Following a campaign, English Heritage keep a detailed list in relation to the state of repair of conservation areas in South West London and throughout England along with the exposure to a decline in standards. Conservation areas are nominated by the local authority (Hammersmith and Fulham) who police conservation area concerns from the upkeep of public spaces to the obstruction of advertising hoardings.

Q.

Will property solicitor in South West London order any conveyancing searches on the London Sixties mid terrace building I am buying?

A.

When you are taking out a mortgage the lender will expect a solicitor to get at least specific searches, including the following for properties in South West London: Local Authority, Drainage Search (Con29DW or personal) and Environment Search and, depending on certain criteria, specific local South West London searches, which might include Land charge Search (bankruptcy only).

Q.

Could the charges for our conveyancing conceal any supplementary hidden fees?

A.

No. Homeward Legal never hide any hidden fees for any reason.

Q.

How do we defer paying out for SDLT?

A.

Homeward Legal do not recommend any stamp duty avoidance. These schemes are expensive and , if the scheme fails, you may be charged a penalty of up to 100% of the stamp duty amount owed. There have been a range of government-sponsored schemes, on the other hand, such as higher thresholds for first-time buyers.

Q.

The property seller has unfortunately installed ill-suited roof antenna on the building in South West London which may infringe nearby conservation area guidelines

A.

A conveyancing solicitor will always verify if the property is located within a designated conservation area and whether any alterations have the requisite permissions from the Hammersmith and Fulham authority. In the absence of any the necessary permissions, your South West London conveyancer will inform you of the best alternatives, which include seeking retrospective permission from the appropriate local authority or buying indemnity insurance.

Q.

Are costs for obtaining landlord's consent to alterations fees or disbursements?

A.

Comparing quotes is not always straightforward, considering wide variations in formatting and terminology. These costs are fees not disbursements. Consent can be difficult to arrange, but the fee may be included in your conveyancing quote.

Q.

I ideally need to exchange on the conveyancing on my leasehold apartment inside 2 months - are you fast South West London conveyancing solicitors ?

A.

A lot of property lawyers can be too slow creating huge amounts of aggravation to the house conveyancing process.

Our approach to conveyancing is different - we use cutting edge e conveyancing systems . More importantly we always allocate you a carefully selected solicitor trained to communicate through the whole of the property chain (line of buyers and sellers) .
