Q.

I need a cheap West Wickham solicitor to purchase a house. How do I get a quote?

A.

This matter catches out many property buyers and sellers, and can leave them paying far more in fees than they budgeted. Many law firms purport to offer supposedly 'the cheapest conveyancing quotes', but additional costs will be included in the terms and conditions.

Q.

We are buying in West Wickham on a newly development brownfield site. It seems that barium soil contamination may be an issue.

A.

West Wickham's local area has a history of contamination from industrial or agricultural, like much of the UK. Land may also be contaminated by other sources, including polychlorinated biphenyl (PCBs).

Q.

Are costs for obtaining landlord's consent to alterations fees or disbursements?

A.

Comparing quotes is not always easy, considering differences in terminology. These costs are fees not disbursements. Consent can be difficult to arrange, but the fee may be included in your quote.

Q.

Can you confirm which West Wickham lenders your lawyers are able to work with. Whose panels are your solicitors members of?

A.

Most lenders in West Wickham are on our West Wickham solicitors' panel. West Wickham lenders and mortgage

specialists include Hampton Court Associates, 250 Wickham Rd, Croydon, CR0 8BJ, Mortgage Advisory Services, 9 High St, Farnborough, Orpington, BR6 7BQ, and Insight Financial Kent, Unit B3 Peills Courtyard/16-18 Bourne Road, Bromley, BR2 9NS.

Q.

We are going to purchase with Natwest, is there anything I need to check?

A.

House buyers should be aware that, over the last two years, some lenders have decreased the number of firms on their approved panel. This can mean greater conveyancing costs for purchasers. Homeward Legal, though, can act for the vast majority of lenders.

Q.

Where can we find out more data on the standard of conservation areas in West Wickham and West Wickham?

A.

Conservation area concerns including paths and footpaths, loft extensions or excessive road signs are managed by the local Bromley planning authority. English Heritage administer details on the condition of conservation areas in addition to the vulnerability to deterioration.

Q.

Do you need to get a chancel search? We are buying a apartment in West Wickham.

A.

Potentially amounting to over £100,000 in repair cost obligations, chancel liability should be considered by buyers of West Wickham property likely to be affected. A chancel search is used to check that such a liability exists. Liability is more common in some parts of the country. A solicitor will be able to advise as to whether a chancel search is necessary, and recommend suitable insurance. West Wickham churches include St Francis of Assisi, St John the Baptist, St Mary and St Mary of Nazareth.

Q.

What sort of additional enquiries into the risk and history of possible flooding in the Bromley area will a West Wickham conveyancing solicitor report on?

A.

A vital component in the legal procedure involves a conveyancer conducting environmental searches that go in specific information about the potential West Wickham area flood risk. A substantially more detailed conveyancing search (most likely a Landmark Database search) may be advised by a West Wickham property solicitor if in the event that the enviro. search show that there is a risk of flooding. At the time of writing (08/01/13) reports on the Environment Agency website do not list any active flood warnings in the West Wickham area.
