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, 24,923 existing properties and 513 new builds were sold in the last year. In all boroughs, detached properties saw the largest increase in price, rising by as much as 12.9% on average.

Your conveyancer may have extra duties to carry out when dealing with difficult cases. These can include dealing with people who are part of a property chain.
Data taken from UK House Price Index
The average house price in South West London is £556,543. The average conveyancing fees when buying a property in the area are £1,750 for freehold properties and £1,860 for leasehold properties. If you are selling a property in South West London, the average conveyancing fees are £1,640 for freehold and £1,780 for leasehold.
Your conveyancing cost will be made up of disbursements, legal fees, and searches. You will need to pay for a Local Authority Search. The average cost of a full Local Authority Search in South West London is £161.60 including VAT.
The total cost will differ depending on a variety of factors. This can include property location, the type of property, and whether you are buying or selling. For example, flats tend to be cheaper than detached or semi-detached properties. However, if you are purchasing a leasehold property, this will incur higher conveyancing fees compared to a freehold.
Data taken from Compare My Move’s Moving House Calculator
In all London regions, the conveyancing process takes approximately 159 days to complete. 159 days is also the national average.
However, the entire process from beginning to end takes a lot longer in London. The national average is 274 days whereas, in London, it takes 297 days from the initial listing to completion date. This is because properties are on the market for a longer period of time in London compared to other regions in the country.
Difficult cases such as buying or selling a leasehold property can cause delays or take longer in general. This is because there is extra paperwork that has to be submitted by your conveyancer.
Data taken from Get Agent
Conveyancing searches are an important part of the conveyancing process. They will highlight any environmental threats that can damage the property. This includes flooding, subsidence, and radon gas levels.
South West London has a low to medium risk of flooding, depending on which borough you are looking at. Croydon, Kingston upon Thames, Lambeth, Merton, and Richmond upon Thames all have a low risk of flooding. However, Sutton has a low to medium flood risk, while Wandsworth has a medium risk of flooding. This means the conveyancing searches are crucial when looking in the latter areas.
London properties are known for having issues with subsidence. This is the case in South West London, meaning that the conveyancing searches are extremely important. The reason why subsidence is an issue in London is due to the high concentration of clay in the soil.
Another important thing that conveyancing searches look into is the radon gas levels. In South West London, there is a low to medium exposure of radon gas. Kingston upon Thames, Lambeth, Merton, and Richmond upon Thames has low exposure to radon gas. However, Croydon, Sutton, and Wandsworth have medium-level exposure to radon gas.
