Q.

How do I find a cheap solicitor quote to sell a property?

A.

Various firms claim to offer theoretically 'the cheapest conveyancing quotes', but additional costs can increase the final invoice. Any fees which are listed in terms and conditions should be fair and clearly defined.

Q.

What is the council tax on a Forties semi-detached house in Woolwich?

Frequently the conveyancer's title report will include the appropriate Greenwich council tax band. Correct charges for homes in Woolwich are listed on the Greenwich local authority website. Currently on 14/12/2012 band rates are:

Q.

Is there any public data on the upkeep of conservation areas in Woolwich?

A.

Local Woolwich conservation area matters for example building materials, non sympathetic doors or ugly highway signs are handled by the local authority (Greenwich).

Following a campaign, English Heritage have produced records of the condition of conservation areas as well as the risk of getting worse.

Q.

Our mortgage lender is Santander, what will I need to be aware of?

A.

Until recently, almost all conveyancing solicitors could act for the large mortgage lenders. Buyers should consider that some lenders have limited the firms who can act for them, which may result in greater conveyancing costs for property buyers. We can act for many mortgage lenders.

Q.

Does your company specialise the legal conveyancing of auction properties in Woolwich?

A.

Homeward Legal is very competent with auction buyers and sellers. Traditionally hard to value lots such as properties for investment, are bought at auction which need increased fact-finding. Homeward Legal therefore strongly suggest purchasers to choose a residential conveyancing lawyer in advance of the day of the auction for a detailed review. Q.

What should I be aware of when buying a house in a Greenwich local authority conservation area ?

A.

An integral part of the legal process includes ordering of LLC1 searches of Greenwich local authority to ascertain conservation area status and the existence of formal approval for alterations. .

Q.

Is a property survey advisable if we are buying a house in Woolwich?

A.

Homeward Legal firmly suggest that most Woolwich buyers arrange a survey when buying in Woolwich. Buyers should be aware that there are a wide range of problems which can affect a property. These can include dry rot, and issues such as these are not likely to be investigated as part of the conveyancing itself.

Q.

Can Woolwich brownfield land soil still be contaminated?

A.

There are legislative rules imposed to restrict top-soil contamination. The local authority for Woolwich will be able to provide more detail on cases of contamination.
