I require conveyancing for an apartment in a fairly new development (five years built) in Bexley. Almost all the properties have already been occupied. Is it strictly necessary to order local searches for my conveyancing in Bexley?
You are taking a significant risk in failing carrying out Bexley conveyancing searches. Without searches you have no clarity over flooding, environmental etc which may mean you walk away due to potential problems down the line. If you are buying mortgage free there is no legal requirement to have them, but we would seriously advise in no uncertain terms that your conveyancer conducts them. Where timings and price are primary issues you should discuss with your solicitor about the options such as indemnity insurance available to you
As someone unfamiliar with conveyancing in Bexley what’s the number one tip you can give me for the legal transfer of property in Bexley
You may not hear this from too many lawyers but conveyancing in Bexley and elsewhere in South East London is an adversarial process. In other words, when it comes to conveyancing there is lots of opportunity for friction between you and others involved in the ownership transfer. For example, the vendor, property agent and on occasion a lender. Choosing a law firm for your conveyancing in Bexley should not be taken lightly as your conveyancer is your adviser, and is the SOLE person in the legal process whose interest is to act in your best interests and to keep you safe.
There is a distinct creep of a "blame" culture- someone must be blamed for the process being so protracted. You must always trust your conveyancer above all other players in the home moving process.

I have been on the look out for a leasehold apartment up to £195,000 and identified one near me in Bexley I like with amenity areas and transport links in the vicinity, the downside is that it's only got 49 remaining years left on the lease. There is not much else in Bexley for this price, so just wondered if I would be making a grave error acquiring a short lease?
If you require a home loan the remaining unexpired lease term may be problematic. Reduce the price by the amount the lease extension will cost if it has not already been discounted. If the existing proprietor has owned the property for a minimum of 2 years you could ask them to start the process of the extension and then assign it to you. You can add 90 years to the existing lease and have £0 ground rent by law. You should consult your conveyancing solicitor regarding this.
Taking into account that I will soon spend hundreds of thousands of pounds on 3 bedroom house in Bexley I wish to have a conversation with the conveyancer about mytransaction before appointing the firm. Can this be arranged?
