Q.

How do I get affordable conveyancing in West Hill?

A.

The confusion over this matter catches out many buyers, and can leave them paying far more in fees than they budgeted. Many firms advertise cheap conveyancing, however extra charges will be included in the small print which buyers may have not read carefully Homeward Legal quotes are not estimates, and offer a clear statement of your legal fees for a standard conveyancing transaction.

Q.

Can I check that a building is in one of West Hill's areas of conservation?

A.

Areas deemed to be of historic or architectural significance, such as 18th century suburbs, will be registered as conservation areas. You may wish to contact the local council for more detail, but your conveyancing solicitor will address this during the conveyancing process.

Q.

Is it recommended to get a chancel search? We are buying a house near church land in West Hill.

A.

Property owners in an area near nearby church property may be required to subsidise repairs. This is referred to as chancel repair liability. A chancel search is employed to check whether such a liability exists. The solicitor carrying out the legal work for your move will be able to advise as to whether a chancel search is necessary. Ecclesiastical properties in the local area where a chancel search may be necessary include St Michael the Archangel.

Q.

What are the pitfalls if we acquire an extended home in a Wandsworth planning authority conservation area ?

A.

An integral part of the property legal includes making enquiries of Wandsworth planning authority to find out conservation area status and the requisite consent for any development. Personal or official searches are not fees and are charged as a disbursement.

Q.

When in the process is it appropriate to instruct a conveyancer to handle our transaction?

If you choose a solicitor with 'no move, no fee' protection, earlier is preferable, as the legal work can commence very early in the process. Promptly instructing a conveyancing solicitor can reduce any chance of your purchase or sale stalling.
