Q.

I need the cheapest conveyancing solicitors. What do we need to consider?

A.

Many firms promote cheap conveyancing quotes. However additional charges are often hiding in the solicitor's terms. These terms are often ignored by excited buyers, eager to get underway. Any fees should be clearly defined. A quote should state costs to be paid to third parties, like the local authority, (disbursments).We offer quotes, not estimates, and clearly state all legal fees you pay for a standard conveyancing transaction.

Q.

Why does conveyancing legal work go on for so long?

A.

Conveyancing could experience delays. Homeward Legal work hard to reduce the effect of these delays whenever we can.

Q.

Which local authority looks after Tooting?

A.

Tooting is located in London Borough of Wandsworth Council, The Town Hall, Wandsworth High Street, London, SW18 2PU, phone: 020 8871 6004

Q.

We have taken out a quote from you. Might I end up paying any hidden costs?

A.

It is unfortunate that sellers need to be watchful for extra costs hidden in a quote's terms and conditions. Homeward Legal's solicitors will not charge any additional charges. Some solicitor do not give accurate quotes, only estimates. You may face a much greater total fee when you have completed.

Q.

I plan to buy a chapel in Hanwell. Are we advised to get a chancel search?

Whichever Tooting parish you are buying in, a conveyancing lawyer may suggest a chancel search. Through some Parochial Church Councils have opted to charge chancel repairs on the current owners of lay rectorships, it is not possible to be certain that a parish where chancel repair fees have not been paid previously will not automatically be the case for future owners. Even if liability is unlikely, indemnity insurance is a sensible precaution.

Q.

Does homewardlegal.co.uk manage the legal conveyancing of auction properties in Tooting?

A.

Homeward Legal is highly knowledgeable with bidders at auction. Traditionally more complicated to convey houses such as property that cannot be insured, are listed in property auctions which tend to necessitate more exploration by the conveyancer Lawyers therefore advocate that buyers instruct a CQS property lawyer well before the day of the auction to give enough time for a detailed review of the legal papers for the lot.

Thereafter, following the actual auction, the lawyer is geared up to complete the auction conveyancing process in 28 days after exchange as usually required by the terms of sale.

Q.

Should I read about DIY conveyancing as a buyer and seller of a flat - Would it be a silly move to take care of the legal work on my own?

A.

On paper there is absolutely no argument why a home seller cant look after the majority of the legal process without assistance. The truth is however that a property solicitor in Tooting carries out a large number of roles from such as liaising with the insolvency office for k15 entries and verifying identities of transacting parties most of which require a qualified professional. Additionally legal firms will pay for acceptable professional indemnity insurance to safeguard you from any errors.

Q.

What can we do if we invest in a terraced house in a Wandsworth local authority designated conservation area ?

A.

An integral part of the legal process includes procurement of searches of the Wandsworth authority to determine conservation area status and the appropriate formal approval for any alterations. Local Authority searches are not fees and are charged at cost to the buyer. If no local authority consents can be provided your Tooting conveyancing solicitor will inform you of the options which may include taking out an indemnity insurance policy or seeking retrospective permission from Wandsworth planning authority.
