Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Barnehurst

I require conveyancing for a flat in a fairly new development (6 years old) in Barnehurst. 95% of the flats are already disposed of. Do I need carry out the local searches as part of conveyancing in Barnehurst?

If you are purchasing a property with the assistance of a mortgage, your lender will require some (many) of the searches so you'll have no choice. If not, then Barnehurst conveyancing searches are for you to decide upon. No doubt your conveyancer, will 'advise', perhaps strongly, that you should have the searches done, but he or she is duty bound in this regard. One thing to bear in mind; if you are likely to sell the house one day, it may be of interest to your future buyer what the searches contain. Sometimes houses with no practical issues can still throw up adverse search results. But if you choose to instruct your lawyer to proceed without searches then your lawyer will have to follow your instructions or you will need to switch to another solicitor for your conveyancing in Barnehurst.

I am considering applying for a Nottingham mortgage for purchase of a newly converted (under development) in Barnehurst with 60% loan to value. Is it compulsory to choose a solicitor on the conveyancing panel for Nottingham ?

In theory, you could use a solicitor that is not on the Nottingham conveyancing panel, but Nottingham would require one of their panel solicitors to be instructed to act in their interests, and you'd have to pay for this - so most people instruct a panel solicitor. It's also easier, as otherwise you'd have to deal with two solicitors for the same transaction.

How does conveyancing in Barnehurst differ for new build properties?

Most buyers of new build premises in Barnehurst contact us having been asked by the builder to exchange contracts and commit to the purchase even before the premises is built. This is because developers in Barnehurst usually 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 conveyancing solicitors 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 accustomed to new build conveyancing in Barnehurst or who has acted in the same development.

I have checked your search tool I can't find the lawyer I was hoping to instruct as being on the bank conveyancing panel. My lawyer has said that they are on the bank approved panel. How can I be sure given that they are not listed on your directory?

Not all firms are yet listed on our lender panel search tool which is still relatively new. Law firms are listing on a daily basis and it is probably the case that your lawyer is on the bank conveyancing lawyer and you should probably take them at their word. Please do feel free to suggest that they completing their listing on our site as it would only cost them £1 a month to list themselves as being on the bank solicitor panel.
