A.

There are several conservation areas near or within Sydenham. You may wish to contact the council if you have specific questions, but your conveyancing lawyer will address this during the conveyancing process.

Q.

What do I need to be aware of if we invest in a property in a Lewisham council conservation area ?

A.

An integral part of the legal process includes ordering of LLC1 searches of Lewisham council to check conservation area status and the existence of formal approval for any alterations. .

What will the searches in Sydenham be?

Searches range in cost, subject to which searches have been ordered. Less common searches, used in addition to a standard bundle, include a limestone search.

Q.

For fast conveyancing to buy a £676k residence, what can we do to speed up the transaction?

A.

Many buyers will, correctly, argue that instructing a proactive, diligent conveyancing solicitor is key a fast completion. Furthermore, there are a range of tasks you as the buyer can do. These include:

  • quickly answering your conveyancing solicitor's questions (by email if possible)
  • arranging your mortgage offer
  • calling or emailing your conveyancing solicitor, and chase them if you suspect any delays

Q.

Yorkshire Building Society will be our lender - is there anything I need to consider?

A.

Some lenders have opted to reduce the size of their 'solicitor panel', potentially creating greater legal costs for home buyers. We can act for all major CML-approved lenders, ensuring that an additional chosen solicitor will not be required to act for your lender.

Q.

Where do I find out additional information on the upkeep of the conservation areas in Sydenham?

A.

Following a campaign, English Heritage administer information on the condition of conservation areas in addition to the vulnerability to a decline in standards. Local Sydenham conservation area issues such as property boundaries, satellite dishes or street posts are managed by the local authority (Lewisham).

Q.

I am purchasing in Sydenham, should we have searches carried out?

A.

Searches are common collection of enquiries carried out on behalf of the party intending to buy the property, for example a local authority search. These are not property surveys and will not identify structural issues.
