Q.

We are trying to find the cheapest conveyancing quote. How do we get a quote?

A.

Both high-street and online firms claim to offer supposedly 'the cheapest conveyancing'. Often additional costs are often hiding in the solicitor's terms of engagement. Busy, stressed homeowners ignore these terms at their peril. Additional charges included in your solicitor's terms should be fair. They come into force only if the conveyancer must perform additional tasks in your interest, which could not be anticipated at the start of the process. Our quotes clearly state all legal fees for a standard conveyancing transaction.

Q.

Will a West Dulwich conveyancer get any conveyancing searches on the London Edwardian mid terrace home I am purchasing

A.

When getting a mortgage the lender insist that at least specific searches, including the following for properties in West Dulwich: Local Authority (council), Drainage and Water Search (CON29DW or personal) and Environmental,, and possibly specific searches, like a Coal and Brine.

Q.

We are purchasing a converted chapel in Harlington. Is a chancel search required?

A.

The conveyancing lawyer may suggest a chancel search, irrespective of the parish where the home being bought is found. Although some Parochial Church Councils have chosen to impose chancel repairs on the current owners of lay rectorships, a solicitor cannot state with certainty that a parish where chancel repair fees have not been paid previously will not be so in future. In the event that chancel liability may apply, your solicitor might recommend insurance rather than pulling out of the purchase.

Q.

In relation to the statistics that 1 4m people are at risk coastal or river flooding, we are questioning if flood risk searches aren't exacting enough?

A.

A qualified conveyancing solicitor in West Dulwich should also get conveyancing searches (environmental) if the first conveyancing searches establishes a risk.

For more peace of mind might be able to speak to a neighbour or local resident.

Q.

Do you recommend that we get a chancel liability search? I am buying a West Dulwich residence near a parson's close.

A.

Some owners in West Dulwich can be required to pay for maintenance of nearby church land. Following a change in the law, interest over any affected land must be registered by October 2013. Your solicitor can provide more details. Church of England properties in West Dulwich where a chancel search may be necessary include All Saints and Emmanuel.

Q.

What sort of investigation in respect to the risk and history of a flood in the Lambeth area will a West Dulwich conveyancing solicitor report on a Sixties property we are buying?

A.

A lawyer will carry out standard conveyancing searches, which include West Dulwich flood risk area data. Depending on the results, your West Dulwich property lawyer may possibly suggest a more involved flood risk search.

Q.

Handling the legal work without instructing a West Dulwich lawyer looks to be possible as a buyer of a house but would it be a smart move ?

A.

There are no arguments why you cant opt to take care of the legal work without a qualified property solicitor in West Dulwich.

However, a solicitor is familiar with a significant number of functions such as chasing replies to enquiries or reading the lease many of which are better done by someone with the relevant training. Fundamentally amateur lawyers will not be covered by sufficient indemnity insurance which all firms and their solicitors are liable to be required to pay for.

Q.

A.
