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 does 'fixtures and fittings' mean?

A.

House purchasers are frequently confused by the lack of detail regarding what fixtures and fittings ought to be included. This may not considered until

it is too late, hence the importance of a complete fixtures and fittings form, agreed by both parties.

Q.

For a fast exchange and completion on the purchase of a £585,000 home, what do we need to guarantee?

A.

Crucial to a faster move is to instruct a proactive solicitor. There are several tasks you could do to accelerate your conveyancing, such as, answering any queries raised by the solicitor as soon as possible, calling or emailing your solicitor, and chase them if you suspect any delays and if you intend to get a house survey, doing so as early as you can.

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.

How is Thornton Heath contaminated land identified?

A.

Property may have been contaminated by a wide range of naturally-occurring factors, like proximity to landfill sites. An environmental search can provide much more clarity.

Q.

What should we do regarding vanadium soil contamination in Thornton Heath?
