Q.

What will the overall charge be on the sale of a 356,000 house? We are looking for discount conveyancing in Surbiton.

A.

Various solicitors claim to offer 'the cheapest conveyancing quotes', but additional charges are often hiding in the terms. Any additional fees which are listed in the terms should be reasonable and only come into force where the lawyer must perform additional tasks in your interest, which could not be anticipated at the start of the process. The Homeward Legal quote calculator will confirm the exact legal fees based on the property you are buying.

Q.

My mortgage lender will be Nationwide - what do I need to know?

A.

Buyers in Surbiton should be aware that some lenders have opted to reduce the size of their 'solicitor panel'. For buyers, this can result in significantly increased conveyancing costs. Homeward Legal, fortunately, will act for the majority of lenders to keep legal costs to a minimum.

Q.

Where can we learn more information the status of Surbiton and Surbiton conservation areas?

A.

English Heritage maintain a list about the condition (poor to good) of conservation areas as well as

the vulnerability to deterioration or improvement. Conservation areas in Surbiton, such as what can be demolished, the colours of paint used or poorly maintained public spaces are handled by the local Kingston upon Thames planning authority.

Q.

Would getting a Homebuyer Report be a good idea if we are buying a property?

A.

It is strongly advised that home buyers in Surbiton order a building survey. There are many defects that affect a property. These include cracked roof tiles, and these will not be addressed by your conveyancing solicitor.

Q.

We are buying on a new-build ex-industrial site. It seems that caesium (Cs) top-soil contamination may be an issue.

A.

Even where some contamination has occurred in Surbiton, risk levels are usually low. Also considering issues such as trichloroethylene and water contaminants such as petrol, contaminants affecting Surbiton property will be factored into an environmental search.

Q.

What are the issues if we buy a building in a Kingston upon Thames council designated conservation area ?

A.

Part of the conveyancing process includes the ordering of searches of the Kingston upon Thames authority to verify conservation area status and consent for any developments. .

Q.

What amount of time will be allowed for the conveyancing process often need, on average?

A.

The number of weeks taken to transact a property can vary, with reference to a handful of issues affecting the property. These could include whether the property being bought or sold is leasehold. Eight to twelve weeks is the industry-wide average, but we will, wherever feasible, work towards a six-week timescale.

Q.

Is there anything we are supposed to do to make our Surbiton conveyancing faster?

A.

Essential to buying faster is to employing a communicative solicitor. That said, there are various jobs you as the buyer could do to accelerate your conveyancing, including, keeping in regular contact with the solicitor, promptly completing and return any forms and clarifying your mortgage lender's requirements.
