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.

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

A.

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.

Will HS2 affect property in Nechells?

A.

Yes. HS2 Phase 1 will likely affect numerous properties in Nechells. Birmingham City Local Authority searches provide HS2 information only if the Nechells property is located within 200m of the proposed route. A specific HS2 search may extend that to 1000m or 5000m, and provide more detail.

Q.

Is contaminated land in Woolwich a concern?

A.

Land in Woolwich can be contaminated by numerous natural causes and human activities, and an environmental search will reveal the extent to which a specific plot of land may be affected by Woolwich contaminants such as infilled land and other sources of contaminated land.

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.

Will a Woolwich conveyancing solicitor conduct any conveyancing searches on the London Regency mid terrace flat I am purchasing

If purchasing and getting a mortgage the lender will expect at least the following Local Authority Search, Drainage and Water Search (CON29DW) and Environment Search, and, depending on certain criteria, less common searches, which may include a Contaminated land Search.
