Juno are a team of licensed conveyancers who will help you when you want to buy or sell a house.
"We are delighted with Juno's services as a conveyancing solicitor for a property in the Brighton area. Positives: Clear and transparent quote - clearly detailing inclusions/exclusions, sticking to the quote religiously (meaning, no additional demands were made), completely online dealing - we had to physically deal with maybe 1-2 pages (!), very clear instructions in non-legal language, decent communication through the process (like chasing us up when our inputs were needed) and responding (mostly) promptly to our emails - overall the process ran extremely smoothly and efficiently, to the extent we were caught off-guard and had to move sooner than we were anticipating! Even the sellers estate agent appreciated how smooth the process was for them they said Juno was the best online solicitor they ever worked with!Things that could be better: The entire thing feels like a black box, in that we were hearing from 5-6 individuals through the process and you miss a bit of a human connection - potentially a catch-up call mid-way through the process would have been good. Overall, we are completely satisfied and recommend this company whole-heartedly!"

According to the UK House Price Index, 2,705 existing properties and 82 new builds were sold in the Merton area. Detached properties rose the most in price, rising by as much as 13.1% in December 2021.
For those wanting an efficient transaction, it's best to instruct your conveyancer as soon as the offer has been accepted. This will prevent delays and ensure that everything is in place and submitted on time. Here is what you can expect from the conveyancing process:
Your conveyancer will have to carry out extra duties when dealing with leasehold properties. This is why buying and selling leaseholds are more expensive than freeholds.
Data taken from UK House Price Index
The average house price in Merton is £559,756. According to our data, this means that conveyancing fees when buying a property are £1,750 for freehold and £1,860 for leasehold. When selling a property, conveyancing fees are approximately £1,640 for freehold and £1,780 for leasehold.
Factors such as the type of property and location can impact your total conveyancing cost. For example, those looking to purchase a leasehold property will pay more in legal fees. This is because of the extra paperwork that must be submitted.
The cost will be made up of legal fees, searches, and disbursements. You will need to make sure that you pay for a full Local Authority Search. In Merton, a full Local Authority Search costs £118.20 including VAT, according to the Merton Council website.
Data taken from Compare My Move’s Moving House Calculator
Our team discovered that the average length of the conveyancing process in Reading is 149 days. Despite this timescale being 10 days lower than the national average of 159 days, it still accounts for over half of the entire process.
In total, the entire buying and selling process from the initial listing to completion, takes 264 days in Reading. This means that the majority of the transaction is taken up by the conveyancing process. However, it's important to note that this timescale will vary. The length of the process will depend on a variety of factors such as the difficulty of the case.
Another factor that greatly affects the length of the conveyancing process is whether the property is freehold or leasehold. Buying and selling leasehold properties takes longer as additional steps must be taken. There will also be additional paperwork that your solicitor must complete.
Data taken from Get Agent
One of the most important steps in the conveyancing process is the conveyancing searches. The searches provide essential details of the property you are looking to buy. This includes information held by the local council. In this case, it will be held by Merton Council.
Merton has a low risk of flooding overall, meaning that this should not be a problem. However, there are potential risks in Merton from surface water and groundwater flooding. Flooding is likely to happen in areas with permeable superficial deposits. This includes Mitchem Mitcham North.
Geobear's Subsidence Map reveals that Merton has a lower risk of subsidence compared to Central London. However, it is still an area that has a notable subsidence risk.
Merton has a very low radon gas level exposure. This means that it isn't likely that radon gas will be an issue when the conveyancing searches are completed.
