Q.

What are the best conveyancing rates for a £121,000 house?

A.

Various firms advertise supposedly 'the cheapest conveyancing', but additional fees may be added into the solicitor's terms. Extra charges listed in the terms needs to be clearly defined. Any disbursements should also be included on the conveyancing quote. The Homeward Legal quote calculator will confirm the solicitors' fees, based on the property you are buying.

Q.

The house being bought is on a brownfield land. It appears that vanadium soil contamination may be an issue.

A.

Regulations have been passed to control pollution, waste, water and chemical contamination. Environment search results will factor contaminants, including metals and others such as chlorine.

Q.

How is Wimbledon contaminated land checked when buying?

A.

A wide range of contaminants caused by naturally-occurring factors could irreparably damage residential property in Wimbledon . Issues like infilled land or pollution incidents will be reported on in environmental search results.

Q.

We are enquiring about council tax rates on a period end of terrace property in Wimbledon, how much are they?

In most cases the title report should include the relevant Wandsworth council tax band. The correct charges for Wimbledon are set out on the Wandsworth local authority website. As at (30 June 2012) the rates are:

  • Band A - £456.00

Q.

How do we uncover additional data the status of Wimbledon and Wimbledon conservation areas?

A.

English Heritage have conducted a survey and created a detailed list about the condition (poor to good) of conservation areas in addition to the vulnerability to deterioration. Conservation area matters including upkeep of paths, addition of PVC windows or poorly maintained roads etc. are handled by the local Wandsworth planning authority.

Q.

My wife and I are buying in Wimbledon. How can we check if the house is in a conservation area?

A.

Locales deemed to be of architectural or historic interest, such as fishing villages, will be recognised as conservation areas. A lawyer will discuss what specific restrictions are in place.

Q.

What type of additional enquiries about the uncertain risk of local flooding around Merton will a solicitor in Wimbledon report back to us on a residential house I am buying?

A.

A solicitor will apply for environmental searches that should include Wimbledon flood risk area information. At the time of writing (16-Jul-12) there were no warnings around the River Wandle Catchment at the Beverley Brook Catchment in the London Boroughs of Merton, Sutton, Kingston upon Thames, Richmond upon Thames and Wandsworth

Q.

Is it necessary that I get a chancel liability search? We are buying close by a church built in the 17th Century in Wimbledon.

A.

In Wimbledon, where land was once owned by a lay impropriators, new owners of that property may be obliged to cover the cost of upkeep of older church buildings. Parochial Church Councils in Wimbledon must register their interest over property by October 2013, simplifying the chancel search process. A conveyancing solicitor will be able to advise further. Wimbledon church properties include St Matthew, St John the Baptist, St Mary and St Mark.
