Q.

How do I get the cheapest conveyancing solicitors in Walworth?

A.

The confusion over this point catches out many property buyers and sellers, and can leave them paying far more in conveyancing fees than they budgeted. Many law firms purport to offer cheap conveyancing, but extra fees are often hiding in the solicitor's terms. Extra fees found in terms and conditions needs to be clearly defined. They only apply in cases where your lawyer is required to complete unexpected extra work , which could not be anticipated at the start of the process. The online quote calculator can generate an accurate statement of the legal fees for the property you plan to buy.

Q.

What can we do if purchasing a semi detached house in a Southwark local authority designated conservation area ?

A.

Part of the legal due diligence when buying a property includes the ordering of searches of Southwark local authority to confirm conservation area status and the required permission for any developments. .

Q.

We plan to complete on around 1st September. What should be determined for stamp duty tax?

The Stamp Duty due will depend on the house or flat's price. On a £298000 property, stamp duty will be £8940.

Q.

The internet has a multitude of online books giving details on doing the legal work yourself. Do I therefore need to spend money on a conveyancer in Walworth ?

A.

There is absolutely no argument why a seller should not look after the bulk of the legal work without the help of a specialist Walworth conveyancer.

That said, a conveyancing solicitor juggles a huge array of exercises such as raising additional enquiries or interpreting planning contraventions most of which are more safely handled with appropriate adequate training.

Q.

What type of exploration in connection with the risk and history of local flooding in Southwark will my property solicitor in Walworth check for a buy to let property I am buying?

A.

A conveyancer conducts standard protocol property environmental searches that incorporate Walworth flood risk data.

Q.

I have got a quote from you. Might I be charged any additional charges?

A.

Unfortunately, sellers need to be watchful for extra costs hidden in a quote's terms and conditions. Homeward Legal will never charge any additional fees. Some solicitors' firms will give a low estimate, not an accurate quote. You may face a much greater total fee when you have completed.

Q.

What is gazumping?

A.

The custom of deciding to reject an offer which has been accepted when a higher offer is made by a second buyer is called gazumping. There is almost always a risk of being gazumped. You should instruct a solicitor early, and even before acceptance of an offer to reduce the chance of your transaction being gazumped.

Q.

Which Walworth mortgage lenders do you work with?

A.

The Homeward Legal partnership work with all the major lenders. A number of mortgage specialists operate in Walworth, including Alpha Property Services (UK) Ltd, 307 East St, London, SE17 2SX. The solicitor handling your conveyancing transaction will be able to carry out any relevant lender-imposed searches or checks.
