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.

In about 6 weeks we are likely to move out of our period home in Thornton Heath into our next property in Tadworth . What is the best point to appoint a home removal firm?

A.

Homeward Legal will advise that you wait until the point where contracts have exchanged as beforehand commonly a definitive date will not have been formalised. Try Izzy Team Ltd, 6 Layard Rd, Thornton Heath, CR7 8JS Phone: 07729 025199 or Removal Co, 196 Moffat Rd, Thornton Heath, CR7 8PX Tel: 0871 522 1283.

Q.

My partner and I are interested in purchasing in Thornton Heath. How can we check if the property is in a designated conservation area?

With around 9,000 protected areas across the country, the areas located near Thornton Heath will include a range of conservation areas. You may wish to contact the council for further information, but your property solicitor will investigate this in detail during the property transaction.

Q.

Is a mining search paid to the solicitor?

A.

Every disbursement and fee ought to be stated on a quote, with any possible extra costs clearly listed. This charge is a disbursement not a fee, and is passed on to the buyer at cost.

Q.

Does my conveyancer in Thornton Heath apply for any searches on the London Edwardian mid terrace cottage I am intending to buy?

A.

If getting a mortgage the building society of bank mandates particular searches, including the following for properties in Thornton Heath: Local Authority Search, Drainage Search and Environment Search and perhaps less common searches, which may include a Limestone Search.

Q.

When do I need to instruct a solicitor to act for us?

A.

In the majority of situations, instructing as soon as possible is wise, as the legal work can commence immediately. Some authors suggest waiting before instruction until the offer is accepted, but delays can risk the other side pulling out, particularly in uncertain market conditions.

Q.

Could our property legal fees cover any extra costs?

A.

Our solicitors do not hide any hidden fees for any reason. Some conveyancers give 'quotes' which are in fact estimates. The final bill you receive may be much more.

Q.

Property environmental searches are fine but with recent flooding such as the Met Office projecting more intense rainfall are they actually good enough to identify enough about the evolving Thornton Heath risk of flooding?

A.

Your Thornton Heath conveyancer will recommend that you carry out rigorous food risk searches if the initial searches identifies a risk of flooding in Thornton Heath

It could be worth trying to get in touch with a neighbour of the property for additional extra comfort or local Surrey flood damage builder - for example: Heat Kill Flood & Drying Service, 3 Layard Rd, Thornton Heath, CR7 8JS Tel: 020 35448876.
