Q.

We are looking for a firm that offers cheap conveyancing. What is included?

A.

Both high-street and online law firms promote 'the cheapest conveyancing quotes'. Unfortunately additional charges may be added into the solicitor's terms of engagement. Excited property buyers and sellers, eager to get underway, often ignore this small print when they instruct. A conveyancing quote must also state the disbursements to be paid. Any extra charges should be clearly defined. They only apply in cases where the solicitor 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.

Which local authority is responsible for Thornton Heath?

A.

Thornton Heath is located in London Borough of Merton Council, Merton Civic Centre, London Road, Morden, Surrey, SM4 5DX, contact: 020 8274 4905

Q.

What is the authority that has overall responsibility for keeping order in the state of conservation areas in Thornton Heath and Thornton Heath?

A.

Local Thornton Heath conservation areas are created by the local Merton planning authority, who preside over conservation area concerns from including things like modern telephone boxes, satellite dishes and area development. English Heritage have assembled a detailed list of the state of conservation areas in England along with the risk of deterioration.

Q.

How much will fee for my conveyancing searches be?

A.

With a Homeward Legal conveyancing solicitor, conveyancing clients are required to pay at most £249 for a standard bundle of searches. Searches are disbursements paid to a third party.

Q.

What can a Thornton Heath conveyancing solicitor advise if the house we hope to purchase is in a Merton council conservation area that may have inappropriate window frames added?

A.

The local authority search (LLC1 - Requisition for search and Official Certificate of Search) carried out by the solicitor in the process of the conveyancing will ascertain whether the property is inside a designated conservation area and evidence of planning consent for additions to the property will be required.

Q.

Is your panel of solicitors experienced enough to move quickly on the conveyancing for residential property auction properties in Thornton Heath?

A.

Our property solicitors commonly act for buyers and sellers at auction. We invariably advise auction buyers to formally appoint a residential conveyancing firm well before the actual auction so there is time for a detailed investigation. Subsequently, immediately after the auction day, a solicitor should be able to concentrate on rapidly finalise the conveyancing process in under the 4 week time frame as conventionally required by the auction conditions.

Q.

How much is the council tax on a Sixties mid-terrace Band A house in Thornton Heath?

A.

More often than not a report on title will give information the appropriate Merton council tax band. The latest tax rates for residents of Thornton Heath are set out in detail at the Merton council site. At the time of writing, 22 November 2012, rates for all bands are:
