We are buying a house and need a conveyancing solicitor in Chislehurst who is on the Clydesdale approved panel. Could you point me in the right direction as regards a firm?
Our service is limited to being a directory service for firms who wish to be listed as being on the approved conveyancing panel for Clydesdale . We don't recommend any particular firms conducting conveyancing in Chislehurst.
I am selling my flat. I had a double glazing fitted in March 2008, but did not receive a FENSA certificate or Building Regulation Certificate. My purchaser’s lender, RBS are being problematic. The Chislehurst solicitor who is on the RBS conveyancing panel is saying indemnity insurance will be fine but RBS are insisting on a building regulation certificate. Why do RBS have a conveyancing panel if they don't accept advice from them?
It is probably the case that RBS have referred the matter to their valuer. The reason why RBS may not want to accept indemnity insurance is because it does not give them any reassurance that the double glazing was correctly and safely installed. The indemnity insurance merely protects against enforcement action which is very unlikely anyway.
Planning on purchasing a apartment in Chislehurst. I have received an online quote from a licenced conveyancer, which states: "There will be no charge for dealing with the Building Society if you are obtaining a mortgage". I take this to mean that there will be no additional fee if the solicitor is on the Clydesdale conveyancing panel. I wanted to make sure it means there will be no additional fees for dealing with the mortgage.
They are simply saying that the cost for acting for the lender is included in the fee being quoted. It is worth you checking that the Chislehurst property lawyer is on the Clydesdale conveyancing panel.
I have instructed a Chislehurst lawyer having made sure that they are on the TSB conveyancing panel. Does my lawyer arrange the survey of the property?
TSB will need an independent valuation of the property. Your lawyer will not arrange this. Usually TSB will appoint their own surveyor to do this, and you will have to pay for it. Remember that this is a valuation for mortgage purposes and not a survey. You may wish to consider appointing your own Chislehurst surveyor to carry out a survey or prepare a home buyers report on the property. It is up to you to satisfy yourself that the property is structurally sound before you buy it. If the survey or report reveals that building work is needed, you should tell your solicitor. You may wish to renegotiate with the seller.
I require expedited conveyancing in Chislehurst as I am under a deadline to sign on the dotted line inside 3 weeks. A mortgage is not required. Can I escape the need for conveyancing searches to save money and time?
If.Given you are not getting a home loan you are at liberty not to have searches conducted although no conveyancer would suggest that you don't. With plenty of history conveyancing in Chislehurst the following are instances of what can be revealed and therefore affect future mortgageability: Refused Planning Applications, Overdue Charges, Overdue Grants, Railway Schemes,...
I'm purchasing my first flat in Chislehurst benefiting from help to buy. The sellers refused to move on the price so I negotiated £7000 of extras instead. The property agent suggested that I not reveal to my lawyer about the deal as it may put at risk my mortgage with the lender. Do I keep my lawyer in the dark?.
All lenders require a Disclosure of Incentives Form from the builder of any new build, converted or renovated property, It is available online from the Lenders’ Handbook page on the CML website. CML form is completed and handed to the lender's surveyor when the inspection is done.
Lenders have different policies on incentives. Some accept none at all, cash or physical, while others will accept cash incentives up to 5%.
Hard to understand why the representative of a builder would be suggesting you withold information from a solicitor when all this will be clearly visible on forms the builder has to supply to its solicitor, the buyer's solicitor and the surveyor.

What advice can you give us when it comes to finding a Chislehurst conveyancing practice to carry out our lease extension conveyancing?
If you are instructing a conveyancer for your lease extension (regardless if they are a Chislehurst conveyancing firm) it is most important that he or she should be familiar with the legislation and specialises in this area of conveyancing. We suggest that you make enquires with two or three firms including non Chislehurst conveyancing practices prior to instructing a firm. Where the conveyancing practice is ALEP accredited then that’s a bonus. The following questions could be helpful:
What volume of lease extensions has the firm carried out in Chislehurst in the last twenty four months? What are the legal fees for lease extension conveyancing?
