Q.

How do we find the best rates for conveyancing in Wandsworth for a £418,000 property?

A.

Many property lawyers promote theoretically 'the cheapest conveyancing quotes'. However additional fees may be added into the terms. Costs found in the terms should be fair and reasonable and be applicable if your solicitor is required to complete extra work , which could not be anticipated at the start of the process.

Q.

We are buying a period investment flat in one of the conservation areas, how do I find details about the standard of upkeep of the conservation area?

A.

English Heritage, a government body, now maintain a list on the state of conservation areas in Wandsworth and across England as well as the vulnerability to deterioration. Conservation areas are specified by the local authority (Wandsworth) who manage everything from paths to the halting of poorly maintained public spaces.

Q.

Should I get a RICS-qualified surveyor to investigate this Wandsworth property purchase?

A.

It is strongly suggested that home buyers in Wandsworth arrange a house surveyor to carry out a survey. Buyers should be aware that there are many defects that have a negative impact on a property, which include poor ventilation. These will not be reported on by a solicitor.

Q.

What type of due diligence in respect to the risk of possible flooding to properties in South West London will the Wandsworth conveyancing solicitor look into on a buy to let property we are buying?

A.

An experienced conveyancing lawyer applies for environmental searches that should include Wandsworth flood risk information.

Q.

Are your recommend solicitors geared up for 28 day completions on the conveyancing of residential property auction properties in Wandsworth?

A.

Indeed we deal with auctions throughout the UK and frequently handle the legal work for auction buyers and sellers. It is a smart move for buyers to instruct a SRA regulated solicitors practice as fast as they can to allow sufficient time for an investigation of the property's legal title well in advance of the date of the auction. Thereafter, following the auction day itself a lawyer will be ready for conclude the conveyancing in under 28 days as conventionally required by the standard auction conditions.

Q.

The property seller appears to have added unsuitable removal of chimney stacks on the home in Wandsworth which may exclude local conservation area guidelines

A.

The property lawyer will carry out searches confirm if the property is inside a conservation area, and if so whether any modifications have appropriate consent from the Wandsworth authority.

Q.

My agent has offered the property solicitor. Must I use this firm?

A.

Many agents have arrangements with solicitors whereby they refer conveyancing work to them. These referrals need to be weighed up against alternatives, as there is a risk that the agent may suggest whichever firm pays the most per referral, not the most appropriate choice.

Q.

How early should you instruct a conveyancing solicitor in Wandsworth?

A.

With a firm offering a 'no move, no fee' conveyancing quote, the faster you instruct the better, as conveyancing involves several tasks that may be performed straight away. Instructing your solicitor earlier can reduce any chance of your sale or purchase falling though.
