I need to find a lawyer that offers cheap conveyancing. What do we need to consider?


Many property lawyers promote cheap conveyancing. Unfortunately additional fees can pad the final bill. Extra costs found in the solicitor's terms should be reasonable and clear. We provide quotes, not estimates, and clearly state the fees for a standard conveyancing.


I am intending to buy a barn conversion in Smarden. Is a chancel search appropriate?


Your property lawyer is likely to recommend that a chancel search be ordered, irrespective of the parish in which the home being purchased is found. In older areas of Swanley, chancel repair may be apportioned on the owners of a home where Parochial Church Councils (PCCs) may have not done so in the past. Even if liability is unlikely, indemnity insurance is a sensible precaution.


How much is the council tax on a period semi-detached Band G house in Swanley?

I have a reasonable understanding of DIY conveyancing as a buyer and seller of a house , Might it be a good economy to carry out the legal work on my own?


Hypothetically there are no arguments at all why a home buyer should not take care of he your own conveyancing unaided. That said, a property solicitor juggles a large array of tasks e.g. interpreting protocol forms and ensuring listed building alterations are compliant some of which really need a qualified solicitor.


How many weeks does we account for the conveyancing process generally take?


Generally speaking, the time needed to buy or sell a home varies, dependent on a range of aspects. We work hard to ensure every purchase is undertaken as quickly as possible.


For our lender, we have chosen Metro Bank, what do we need to be aware of?


In some cases, lenders have reduced the number of firms on their approved panel. For home buyers, this can result in significantly increased conveyancing costs. We are able to act for most mortgage lenders.


The house being purchased is on a brownfield land. Is the soil potentially contaminated by waste minerals like titanium (Ti)?


There are legislative rules in place to control soil contamination. Environment search results will factor contaminants, including metals and others such as groundwater contamination and food-processing waste.
