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!"

Data taken from Compare My Move’s Moving House Calculator
Our team found that the conveyancing process takes approximately 159 days to complete in South East London. This matches the national average which is also 159 days. This still accounts for over half the entire process.
The average length of the buying and selling processes from initial listing to completion takes 297 days in South East London. The national average is 274 days, meaning that properties are more likely to stay on the market for a longer period of time before an offer is accepted.
The total timescale can vary depending on how difficult the case is. For example, if you are buying or selling a leasehold property, you are more likely to come across delays. This is because there is additional paperwork that your conveyancer needs to submit.
Data taken from Get Agent
Conveyancing searches are one of the most important parts of the conveyancing process. They highlight any environmental concerns that could cause damage to the property. This includes looking at flood risks, subsidence, and radon gas levels.
There is a medium to high risk of flooding in South East London. Bromley has a medium risk of flooding while Lewisham has a medium to high risk. Bexley, Greenwich, and Southwark are all listed as high risk as they are closer to the River Thames. Keep this in mind when you are looking for a property in these areas.
London has a history of subsidence issues. There is a high concentration of clay soil which has been pressurized by the high population and a large number of office buildings. South East London is no different and therefore the conveyancing searches are crucial. While the subsidence issues aren't as severe as in Central London, it is still present across all boroughs.
Across all boroughs in South East London, there are low radon levels. With radon gas exposure at an average of less than 1%, this should not be an issue when you purchase a property in the area.
