What amount of time does I plan for conveyancing need, on average?
The amount of time taken to transfer a property is not wholly predictable, dependent on a range of factors including whether there is a mortgage. Our solicitors work hard to ensure your sale or purchase is handled quickly, and to the highest standard of service.
We are buying a property where the seller appears to have fitted cladding on the building which we think might violate the St Georges Circus conservation area guidelines.
A property solicitor should confirm whether the property is within a designated conservation area, and if so, whether any alterations have essential consents from the City of London planning authority.
