Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Charlton

I am buying a house mortgage free in Charlton. I have lived for the last twelve years in Charlton. Conveyancing searches are expensive. As I know the area and road very well must I have all the conveyancing searches?

Provided that you do not need a mortgage, then all but one or two of the Charlton conveyancing searches are optional. Your solicitor will try and steer you, no-doubt strongly, that you should have searches completed, but she is duty bound to take that path of encouragement . Do consider; if you are going to sell the house one day, it may be of relevance to your future purchaser what the searches determine. There are plenty of instances where premises with no practical issues can still reveal unfavourable search results. A good conveyancing solicitor in Charlton should be able to give you some helpful guidance in this regard.

In what way does my ID and proof of funds have anything to do with my conveyancing in Charlton? Is this really warranted?

In order to comply with Money Laundering Regulations any Charlton conveyancing firm will require evidence of your identity in all conveyancing matters. This is normally satisfied by provision of a passport and an original bank statement or utility bill showing your correct address.

In accordance with Money Laundering Regulations, property lawyers are duty bound to ascertain not only the identity of conveyancing clients but also the origin of fund that they receive in respect of any matter. An unwillingness to disclose this will lead to your solicitor terminating their relationship with you, as clearly this will cause a conflict between the set Regulations and a refusal to disclose.

Your conveyancers will have an obligation to notify the relevant authorities should they consider that any amounts received by them may contravene the Anti-terror and anti-money-laundering rules.

I have been told that property searches are the primary cause of obstruction in Charlton house deals. Is that correct?

The Council of Property Search Organisations (CoPSO) released determinations of a review by MoveWithUs that conveyancing searches do not figure amongst the most frequent causes of delays during the legal transfer of property. Local searches are unlikely to feature in any slowing down conveyancing in Charlton.

How does conveyancing in Charlton differ for new build properties?

Most buyers of new build property in Charlton approach us having been asked by the builder to exchange contracts and commit to the purchase even before the property is completed. This is because builders in Charlton 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 Charlton or who has acted in the same development.

My father has recommend that I appoint his conveyancers in Charlton. Should I choose my own conveyancer?

Much as we are happy to recommend a Charlton conveyancing lawyer the ideal way to choose a conveyancing lawyer is to have guidance from friends or relatives who have previously instructed the firm you're are thinking of instructing.

My wife and I have selected a Charlton conveyancing solicitor for our house purchase (novice purchasers) and have picked up in the Ts and Cs that they are not overseen by the FCA. Should I be worried or is that standard with solicitor?

We can't see why they should be. Most lawyer don't lend money. They will be regulated by the SRA, who have stringent laws in relation to amounts deposited in their bank.
