Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Bexley

Is the fact that my solicitor in Bexley is not identified on my mortgage company's solicitor panel that there is a problem with the standard of the firm’s conveyancing?

It would not be wise to jump to that conclusion. There are plenty of reasonable explanations. A recent report by the solicitors regulator revealed that over three quarters of law firms surveyed had been removed from at least one lender panel. The most common reasons for removal are: (1) low volume of transactions (2) the lawyer is a sole practitioner (3) as part of the HSBC panel reduction (4) regulatory contact by SRA (5) accidental removal. Where you are concerned you should simply call the Bexley conveyancing practice and ask them why they are no longer on the approved list for your mortgage company.

This question may be naive but I am unexperienced as a first time purchaser of a ground floor flat in Bexley. Do I collect the keys to the premises on the completion date from my lawyer? If this is the case, I will appoint a local conveyancing solicitor in Bexley?

On the day of completion you will not be required to attend the conveyancers office in Bexley. Conveyancing lawyers for you will electronically transfer the purchase money to the vendor’s conveyancers, and once they have received this, you will be invited to collect the keys from the Estate Agents and start moving into the property. Usually this happens early afternoon.

Your conveyancer should review the deeds as conveyancing in Bexley can on occasion reveal restrictions in the title documents which prevent certain works or need the permission of a 3rd party. Certain extensions require local authority planning consent and approval in accordance building regulations. Many areas are designated conservation areas and special planning restrictions apply which frequently prevent or affect extensions. You should check these issues with a surveyor before you commit yourself to a purchase.

Various internet forums that I have frequented warn that are the primary cause of stalling in Bexley house deals. Is that correct?

Alternatively, you should use their online form to make an enquiry. You will need to provide the SRA with as much information as possible to assist their search, including the name and address in Bexley of the conveyancing firm of solicitors you previously hired, the name of conveyancing solicitor with whom you had dealings, and the date on which you last had dealings with the firm.

How does conveyancing in Bexley differ for newly converted properties?

Most buyers of new build or newly converted property in Bexley contact us having been asked by the builder to exchange contracts and commit to the purchase even before the residence is ready to move into. This is because new home sellers in Bexley tend to acquire 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 property lawyers 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 Bexley or who has acted in the same development.
