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.

Does a West Wickham property lawyer order any property on the London period end-of-terrace flat I am purchasing

A.

If obtaining a mortgage the lender mandates the following Local Authority (personal or official), Drainage Search and Environment Search and occasionally special local West Wickham searches, which may include a Commons Registration (CON290).

Q.

How is West Wickham contaminated land investigated?

A.

Land in West Wickham is contaminated by a broad range of natural and human-influenced issues, such as brine works. An environmental search can give more clarity.

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.

What are the pitfalls if buying a period house within the boundary of a Bromley planning authority conservation area ?

A.

An integral part of the legal process includes ordering of LLC1 searches of Bromley local authority to establish conservation area status and the existence of consent for changes. .

Q.

What is the council tax on a Sixties terraced house in West Wickham?

A.

Customarily a report on title will cover the Bromley council tax band. The latest tax rates for properties in West Wickham are tabled on the Bromley council site. At the time of authoring on 12/01/2013 rates for all bands are:

  • Band A - £865.00
  • Band B - £1,010.00
  • Band C - £1,154.00
  • Band D - £1,298.00
  • Band E - £1,586.00
  • Band F - £1,875.00
  • Band G - £2,163.00
  • Band H - £2,596.00

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.
