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.

What amount of time will conveyancing to buy property require, on average? We are buying in West Dulwich.

A.

The length of time taken to transact residential property does vary, according to several issues. With our solicitors, your sale, purchase or remortgage is handled quickly, and to the highest standard of service.

Q.

Which local authority is responsible for West Dulwich?

A.

West Dulwich is located in London Borough of Southwark Council, Town Hall, Peckham Road, London, SE5 8UB, contact: 020 7525 5005

Q.

We are hoping to be moving from our detached building just outside West Dulwich into a bigger home in Denmark Hill . What is the best point to book a home removal firm?

Most solicitors tend to advocate that buyers and sellers hold off organising removals until the point where formal exchange of contracts because an actual moving date will not have been set. Local firms include Dulwich Removals, Court La, London, SE21 7EB on 0845 660 2353.

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.

Is there any comprehensive information on the standard of the conservation areas in West Dulwich?

A.

Local West Dulwich conservation area issues like the upkeep of public spaces, addition of unsympathetic windows or modern telephone boxes are handled by the local Southwark planning authority. English Heritage keep records in relation to the state of conservation areas along with the risk of the area falling into disrepair.

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.

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.
