Please could you suggest a Leeds Building Society allowed Chislehurst conveyancing lawyer who can have us moved in within under 3 weeks? Would it be better to use a local Chislehurst conveyancer or a nationwide conveyancer?
We would be happy to suggest some excellent Chislehurst conveyancing firms. Another option is to visit the main road in Chislehurst. Go in to a couple of firms and ask to see a conveyancing solicitor for a fee estimate. Explain your requirements together with your reasons and get a commitment on speed. Select the lawyer that genuine.
We are purchasing a flat and require a conveyancing solicitor in Chislehurst who is on the Kent Reliance conveyancing panel. Can you recommend a local solicitor?
Our service is limited to being a directory service for firms who wish to be listed as being on the approved conveyancing panel for Kent Reliance . We don't recommend any particular firms conducting conveyancing in Chislehurst.
I am selling my home in Chislehurst. Will my lawyer have to be required to be on the HSBC conveyancing panel in order to deal with the discharge of my mortgage?
Ordinarily, even if your lawyer is not on the HSBC conveyancing panel they can still act for you on your sale. It might be that the lender will not release the original deeds (if applicable and increasingly irrelevant) until after the mortgage is paid off. You should speak to your lawyer directly before you start the process though to ensure that there is no problem as lenders are changing their specifications fairly frequently currently.
I am close to exchanging contracts on the sale of our home in Chislehurst and according to the buyers it appears that there is a possibility that the property was built land that was not decontaminated. A local lawyer would know this is not the case. For the life of me I don't know why the purchasers used a nationwide conveyancing outfit rather than a conveyancing solicitor in Chislehurst. Having lived in Chislehurst for many years we know of no issue. Should we contact our local Authority to get clarification that the buyers are looking for.
It would appear that you have a conveyancing lawyer already. Are they able to advise? You must check with your lawyer before you do anything. It is very possible that once the local authority has been informed of a potential issue it cannot be insured against (a bit like being diagnosed with a serious illness and then taking out health insurance to cover that same illness)
I am buying a new build flat in Chislehurst. Conveyancing is necessary evil at the best of times but I have never purchased a new build flat before. Can you give me some examples of some of the questions asked in new build legal work.
