As a first time buyer what is the most important advice you can give me about purchase conveyancing in Chigwell?

Not many law firms or advisers will tell you this but conveyancing in Chigwell or throughout Essex is often a confrontational process. In other words, when it comes to conveyancing there is plenty of opportunity for conflict between you and others involved in the transaction. For example, the vendor, property agent and sometimes a lender. Appointing a solicitor for your conveyancing in Chigwell is a critical decision as your conveyancer is your adviser, and is the ONLY person in the process whose role it is to look after your legal interests and to keep you safe.

Sometimes a potential adversary may attempt to sway you that it is in your interests to do things their way. For instance, the estate agent may claim to be helping by claiming that your conveyancer is wrong.

Forgive me if this question is silly but I am wet behind the ears as a 1st time buyer of a garden flat in Chigwell. Do I pick up the keys to the house on the completion date from my lawyer? If so, I will instruct a High Street conveyancing solicitor in Chigwell?

On the day of completion you will not be required to go to the conveyancers office in Chigwell.

I've recently found out that there is a flying freehold element on a property I have offered on two weeks back in what should have been a quick, chain free conveyancing. Chigwell is where the house is located. Can you shed any light on this issue?

Flying freeholds in Chigwell are rare but are more likely to exist in relation to terraced houses. Even though you don't necessarily need a conveyancing solicitor in Chigwell 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 Chigwell may determine 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 premises.

I have been pointed in your direction by numerous property agents in Chigwell to choose a solicitor using your seach tool. Is there a financial upside for Estate Agents to promote your services ahead of a competitor’s?

We don’t give any referral fee for pointing buyers and sellers in our direction. We thought it would be too underhand a fee because home movers will think, ‘How come the agent getting a kickback? Why aren’t I receiving any benefit too?’ So we decided to step away from that.
