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!"

This means that the average conveyancing fees for buying a freehold property are £1,800 and £1,960 for leasehold properties. When selling a property, the average conveyancing fees are £1,720 for freehold properties and £1,880 for leasehold properties.
Be aware that these are averages for the whole of West London and your conveyancing cost will differ depending on a variety of factors. These include the location of the property, the market at the time and how complex the transaction is. In addition to your legal costs you will be expected to pay disbursements and fees for searches. The searches include a full Local Authority Search. The average cost for a full Local Authority Search in West London is £236.66 including VAT. This is an average based on the costs for each borough in the area.

Across West London, the conveyancing process takes around 159 days to complete, which is the same as the national average. however, the national average for the entire buying and selling process takes 274 days. In West London, the average timescale is 297 days. This means that buyers will have to wait longer to move into their new homes in the area.
Be aware that if you have a complex case such as buying or selling a leasehold property, there may be delays or long waiting times. This is because extra documentation and paperwork will need to be completed and submitted by your conveyancer.
Data taken from Get Agent
As part of the conveyancing searches, your conveyancer will arrange for essential searches on the property and surrounding area. These are a crucial part of the process and will highlight potential environmental issues that can affect the property. This includes all flood risks, subsidence and ground stability, details of contaminated land and previous industry in the area and radon gas levels.
Flood risks in West London vary depending on where you are located. Richmond upon Thames, for example, has a low risk of flooding. Brent has a low to medium risk of flooding, while Hammersmith and Fulham, Harrow and Ealing have a high risk of flooding from surface water.
The vast majority of London has subsidence issues due to the number of large buildings in a small area, in addition to the high clay content in the soil.
Radon gas levels are low across the West London boroughs for the most part but be sure to read the details of your property searches and any other paperwork supplied by your conveyancer.
