Q.

How do we find a discount conveyancing estimate?

A.

Various conveyancers purport to offer theoretically cheap conveyancing quotes. Unfortunately additional costs may pad the final bill. Based on the property you intend to buy, our online quote calculator will generate an accurate statement of conveyancing fees.

Q.

Do you recommend that we get a chancel search when you are purchasing a West Croydon property on the same street as an ecclesiastical parish?

A.

There are 15000 parishes throughout the UK. Property owners within some of these may be required to cover the cost of the repair of a local church. Liability has the potential to impact the value of a West Croydon property, but an indemnity policy may be available to protect the new owners.

Q.

Would you advise taking action to get out of paying HMRC stamp duty?

A.

Homeward Legal do not recommend conveyancing clients expose their finances to any stamp duty avoidance. Such schemes are costly and unreliable.

Q.

What is the council tax on a residential terraced Band C property in West Croydon?

You will be informed about the homes band with the conveyancer's title report.

Correct charges for West Croydon are set out in detail at the Croydon council site. At the time of writing (23 August 2012) the rates are:

  • Band A - £971.00
  • Band B - £1,133.00
  • Band C - £1,295.00

  • Band E - £1,781.00
  • Band F - £2,104.00
  • Band G - £2,428.00
  • Band H - £2,914.00

Q.

Would acquiring a building survey be advisable if we are purchasing a home?

A.

We strongly advise that the majority of buyers book a property surveyor to carry out a survey. It is a fact that there are many problems that can negatively affect a property, which a conveyancing solicitor will not report on. These include rotten roof timbers and flat roof leaks.

Q.

Has soil in West Croydon been contaminated by manganese (Mn)?

A.

West Croydon agriculture or industry can cause soil contamination. Various bodies hold data on land contaminants affecting West Croydon, including local authorities.

Q.

Are we advised to get a chancel search if I plan to purchase in the parish of Tooting Graveney, near West Croydon?

A.

A lawyer should confirm that a chancel search be taken out, regardless of the parish in which the house being purchased is found. Through some Parochial Church Councils have taken the decision to charge chancel repairs on the current owners of lay rectorships, it is not possible to be certain that a parish which has not been subject to chancel liability in the past will not be so in future. For property in the parish of Tooting Graveney, it is not safe to rely on the historical behaviour of the parish council alone as a guide.

Q.

I am purchasing a residence in West Croydon, and need to know if there are any areas of conservation.

A.

There are a number of conservation areas around West Croydon. The local authority will be able to advise further about local conservation areas, and the property solicitor handling your purchase address the consequences of purchasing property in a conservation area.
