More information on Croydon
Croydon is a large town in the South of Greater London, just under 10 miles from Charing Cross. The town has one of the largest commercial districts outside of London centre, and is a major centre for enterprise in the London area. Croydon also lies on an important transport junction into London from the South coast with the channel, so transport for residence is easy by road or rail, particularly if moving anywhere South of London.
The transport route being so important as it is the only major route through the North Downs, which is a group of chalk hills with a valley running through it. The name ‘Croydon’ coming from an ancient Anglo-Saxon word for ‘Valley’, so the town has always been important for London and the local area.
Croydon itself, thanks to its age and importance, has a diverse and stunningly pretty array of buildings at its disposal, including many shops following old market streets and the town hall.

Q & A's on Conveyancing Quotes Croydon
A: While many conveyancing solicitors offer cheap deals to entice customers, there is no way that anyone can provide a full conveyancing service that some offer for as little as £199. Experts at Conveyancingsupermarket.com have selected a panel of professional and experienced conveyancing solicitors that buyers can be assured will provide the highest possible service.
A: The Local Authority, in this case Croydon, holds information about properties under its jurisdiction, and a conveyancer will look at this information to assess any problems or changes that may occur regarding the property. These include the condition of roads and footpaths and whether any road schemes are planned, whether there is any evidence of land contamination, if the property is in a conservation area and whether there are breaches of planning regulations associated with the property.
A: Depending on the type and location of the property, a Local Authority search can be between £40 and £300. A water and drainage search will be roughly £45, an environmental search will be slightly less, while a chancel search to establish whether homeowners may be liable to pay for repairs to a local church is £17. Add to this other costs, such as the £220 Land Registration Fee of £220, and it is clear that the conveyancer has only charged between £350 to £500 for his expertise.
A: The time taken to buy a property depends on many factors, including the vendor’s conveyancers. If you are in a hurry, you can help by answering your solicitor’s questions fully and promptly. If everything moves smoothly, and you have done your homework, you should be in your new home around ten weeks after having an offer accepted.
