Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Chessington

It has been five months since my purchase conveyancing in Chessington concluded. I have checked the Land Registry site which shows that I paid £150,000 when infact I paid £160,000. Why the discrepancy?

The price paid figure is taken from the application to register the purchase. It is the figure included in the Transfer (the legal deed which transfers the premises from one person to the other) and referred to as the 'consideration' or purchase price. You can report an error in the price paid figure using the LR online form. In most cases errors result from typos so at first glance the figure. Do report it so they can double check and advise.

How does conveyancing in Chessington differ for newly converted properties?

Most buyers of new build property in Chessington come to us having been asked by the seller to sign contracts and commit to the purchase even before the house is built. This is because developers in Chessington typically purchase the site, 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 Chessington or who has acted in the same development.

I've recently found out that there is a flying freehold issue on a house I put an offer in last month in what was supposed to be a quick, chain free conveyancing. Chessington is the location of the property. Can you shed any light on this issue?

Flying freeholds in Chessington are unusual but are more likely to exist in relation to terraced houses. Even where you use a solicitor outside Chessington you would need to get your solicitor to go through the deeds diligently. Your bank may require your conveyancing solicitor to take out an indemnity policy. Some of the more diligent conveyancing solicitors in Chessington may decide that this is not enough and that the deeds be re-written to give you the most up to date legal protection. If so, the next door neighbour also had to sign up to the revised deeds.It is possible that your lender will not accept the situation so the sooner you find out the better. You should also check with your insurance broker as to whether they will insure a flying freehold residence.
