Q.

What will the overall charge be on the sale of a 462k house? We need to find a low cost conveyancing quote in Wallington.

A.

Several law firms advertise so-called cheap conveyancing quotes. Unfortunately extra charges are often hiding in small print.

Q.

How much time may conveyancing to transfer an apartment take, in your opinion? We have already found a buyer.

A.

The amount of time required to sell or purchase a home does vary, affected by many issues which may include if there is a mortgage. With our Wallington property specialists, your sale or purchase is undertaken as quickly as possible.

Q.

Is a chancel repair liability search a fee or disbursement?

A.

Disbursements and fees should be clearly stated on a quote, with any possible extra costs clearly listed. This charge is a disbursement not a fee, meaning the solicitor passes on the charge at cost.

Q.

Do you need a chancel search? I am purchasing a home in Wallington.

A.

The result of Aston Cantlow (PCC) v Wallbank reaffirmed that 'lay rectors' of property must contribute towards the cost of church repairs. A number

of sources are used to identify liability, including local maps. Wallington churches where chancel liability may apply include Roundshaw, St Paul, Elm Grove Centre, Holy Trinity and Springfield Church @ Roundshaw.

Q.

In Wallington, is soil remediation of a contaminated plot an option?

A.

A degree of remediation can often be possible. A local specialist for example London Lawn Turf Co, Elm Road, Wallington, SM6 7HQ may be able to provide further information.

Q.

What factors are key to ensure fast conveyancing?

A.

Finding a proactive and experienced solicitor is crucial to moving faster. Ask these questions when identifying your conveyancer:

  • Which communication methods do they use? Days can be wasted waiting for letters in the post which could be emailed or faxed.
  • Did you experience any delays when requesting a quote?
  • Are they 'no move, no fee'? This can incentivise a faster transaction.

Q.

We need to know which Wallington lenders you can work with. Which panels are you on?

A.

The Homeward Legal partnership have solicitors who have experience working with all the major lenders serving Wallington purchasers. Wallington lenders and mortgage specialists include Elson Consultancy, 38 Stafford Rd, Wallington, SM6 9AA, Farrell Independent, 5 Northwood Rd, Carshalton, SM5 3JA, and M P S Mortgages, 167 Woodcote Rd, Wallington, SM6 0QG.

Q.

The Wallington home being purchased is on a ex-industrial use land. Is the top-soil likely to remain contaminated by waste minerals like copper?

A.

Given the history of industry and agriculture in parts of Wallington, top-soil contamination is unavoidable. Metal contamination of top-soil in Wallington is more likely to occur near waste treatment sites. Data on other contaminants, like trichloroethylene, will also be included in an environmental search.
