"Working in partnership is the key to a smoother completion."
If you are buying, selling or remortgaging a house or flat in Streatham, you will need to instruct a solicitor to complete the legal side of things for you.
Our network of solicitors have many years experience of conveyancing in Streatham and throughout Lambeth and our proactive approach means we complete the transaction faster than other firms.
Conveyancing solicitors who handle all the legal work for your sale or purchase for a fixed fee.
If your London house move does not complete you will not be charged any property legal fees.
Using local expertise, our solicitors will guide you through the conveyancing process.
No additional fees whatsoever.

Misleading conveyancing quotes catch out many buyers, leaving them to pay sometimes £100s more than planned. Many solicitors claim to offer 'the cheapest conveyancing quotes', but additional costs will be included in the small print. Our quotes clearly state the solicitors' fees for a standard conveyancing transaction.Q.
Both agents and mortgage brokers will often endorse a conveyancing firm. These referrals should be compared against alternatives, as there is a risk that the agent may suggest the firm which pays to the largest referral fee, not the best value for you.Q.
Typically a conveyancer's title report should cover the appropriate Lambeth council tax band. Correct rates for residents of Streatham are detailed at the Lambeth council site. At the time of writing (16/07/2012) band rates are:
Part of the conveyancing process includes ordering of LLC1 searches of Lambeth planning authority to confirm conservation area status and the existence of consent for developments. .Q.
There is no argument why a home buyer cannot embark on the legal and technical work without the help of Streatham lawyer. The truth is however that a conveyancing solicitor carries out a large array of assignments e.g. liaising with the insolvency office for k15 entries or interpreting the lease many of which really need a qualified professional.
Essentially amateur lawyers will not have applicable cover which practicing firms and their solicitors need to take out.Q.
English Heritage, a government body, have put together records of the condition of conservation areas in addition to the vulnerability to a decline in standards. Local Streatham conservation area matters, for instance whether trees can be cut down, the colours of paint used or poorly maintained public spaces are handled by the local Lambeth planning authority.Q.
As is often reported, moving faster is key to instruct a experienced solicitor. When choosing a solicitor, consider these points: Did you experience any delays when requesting a quote? Which communication methods do they use? Days can be wasted waiting for letters in the post which could be emailed or faxed. Do they work on a 'no sale, no fee' basis?Q.
We firmly recommend that purchasers book a house surveyor. It is a fact that there are a range of defects that affect a property, that will not be addressed during the conveyancing process. These include roof spread.
