Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Barnehurst

I am searching for value for money property lawyer. Should I go for for a national conveyancer rather than a high street Barnehurst conveyancing lawyer?

Existing third party connections are another important factor to consider when choosing conveyancing lawyers. Barnehurst conveyancers benefit from long term relationships with mortgage brokers and agents, local authorities, valuers and other law firms meaning you will move in shortest possible time. Hosting a wealth of experience in the local area also helps too.

Me and my partner are soon to exchange on the purchase of a house in Barnehurst but as a result of damage from some water damage at the property I have was able negotiate recompense from the vendor in the sum of £3k in the form of a adjustment in the price. I had intended this to be dealt with as part of a side agreement yet Kent Reliance are not allowing this. Should they have been informed?

The conveyancer being on a Kent Reliance approved list is required to inform Kent Reliance of any changes to the sale price. If you prohibit your solicitor to notify the reduction to Kent Reliance then they would have to discontinue acting for you. In addition, Kent Reliance and you would have to appoint a new solicitor for your conveyancing in Barnehurst.

How does conveyancing in Barnehurst differ for newly converted properties?

Most buyers of new build property in Barnehurst approach us having been asked by the seller to exchange contracts and commit to the purchase even before the property is ready to move into. This is because builders in Barnehurst tend to purchase the land, plan the estate and want to get the plots sold off as they are building the properties. Buyers, therefore, will have to exchange contracts without actually seeing the house they are buying. To reduce the chances of losing the property, buyers should instruct conveyancers as soon as the property is reserved and mortgage applications should be submitted quickly. Due to the fact that it could be several months and even years between exchange of contracts and completion, the mortgage offer may need to be extended. It would be wise to use a lawyer who specialises in new build conveyancing especially if they are used to new build conveyancing in Barnehurst or who has acted in the same development.

I am looking for a leasehold apartment up to £195,000 and found one near me in Barnehurst I like with amenity areas and transport links nearby, however it's only got 49 years unexpired on the lease. There is not much else in Barnehurst in this price bracket, so just wondered if I would be making a grave error buying a short lease?

If you require a mortgage the remaining unexpired lease term may be an issue. Discount the price by the amount the lease extension will cost if it has not already been discounted. If the existing proprietor has owned the premises for at least 2 years you can ask them to commence the lease extension formalities and pass it to you. You can add 90 years to the existing lease with a zero ground rent applied. You should speak to your conveyancing solicitor about this matter.

I am a sole trader wishing to take over a lease of an office on a shopping parade. Can you recommend lawyers offering fixed fees for non-domestic conveyancing in Barnehurst for below 2k?

If you are intending to buy or sell a shop, pub, restaurant, office, retail unit or a complete business we will find you the right lawyer. Regarding the charges these will vary based on the structure and nuances of the deal. Let us have your contact information or call so as to enable us to provide you with a detailed commercial conveyancing calculation.

We are in the process of purchasing a house in Barnehurst. Could our property lawyer keep the amount we are are purchasing for confidential from the likes of Zoopla. How do I make sure this is not noted?
