Recently asked questions about conveyancing in East Ham

The owners of the house we are looking to purchase have appointed a conveyancing firm in East Ham who has suggested a preliminary agreement with a deposit 10k. Is it wise to enter into such agreements?

There are a couple of primary concerns with entering into any lock out agreement (sometimes known as an exclusivity agreement) is that it can distract from making progress with the conveyancing work, so in the absence of it needing little or no negotiation then it could transpire to be unhelpful. It is not promoted amongst East Ham conveyancing solicitors as a result. A supplemental concern is the extent of the remedies available - a jilted buyer is very unlikely to secure an injunctive ruling by a court to bar the owner disposing of the property to an alternative purchaser, so the only remedy available under the agreement will be the recovery of abortive charges and, in restricted circumstances, the additional payment of damages.

Me and my partner are buying a flat in East Ham. I might seem paranoid but how we can trust a solicitor? At some point we have to send money into their account. What is the protection we have from them run away with our monies?

I can see plenty of here regarding conveyancing in East Ham but what is your top tip for choosing the right conveyancer in East Ham

It would be unwise to be swayed by the cheapest East Ham conveyancing fees. You really do get what you’re paying for when it comes to property lawyers. A cheap quote may mean that the conveyancing solicitor is handling a lot of jobs at one time and you won’t get the quality of service and the attention that you need. It is, however, wise to use a conveyancer who has a fixed fee on a no sale, no fee basis. This way, you go into the conveyancing with your eyes wide open.

We have agreed to purchase a house in East Ham. A rare aspect is that the roof has a solar panel. Skipton have issued a mortgage offer so presumably this is not a concern to them. Why is my solicitor raising questions about the panel?

As you are obtaining a mortgage with Skipton your lawyer must comply with the formal instructions contained in Part two of UK Finance Lenders’ Handbook for Skipton. The CML Handbook stipulates minimum specifications for solar panel roof-space leases, and conveyancers are required to report to Skipton where a lease does not comply with these requirements. The conditions relate to the installation of panels on properties countrywide and is not isolated to East Ham.

I understand that there are debates on Chancel Insurance on online forums. Am I compelled to take this when purchasing a property in East Ham? or I am told that there is an ancient law that could mean that house owners residing in a parish church boundary may be liable to contribute towards maintenance towards the chancel in proximity to the church. Is this relevant for conveyancing in East Ham?

Unless a previous purchase of the property took place after 12 October 2013 you could assume that conveyancing practitioners conducting conveyancing in East Ham to continue to propose a a chancel search and or chancel repair liability insurance.
