Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Eltham

What is the first thing I need to know about purchase conveyancing in Eltham?

You may not hear this from too many lawyers but conveyancing in Eltham or throughout England and Wales is often a confrontational experience. In other words, when it comes to conveyancing there exists lots of opportunity for confrontation between you and others involved in the ownership transfer. E.g., the seller, selling agent and sometimes the mortgage company. Choosing a solicitor for your conveyancing in Eltham is a critical decision as your conveyancer is your adviser, and is the SOLE person in the transaction whose interest is to act in your best interests and to protect you.

Every so often a potential adversary may attempt to sway you that you should follow their advice. As an example, the property agent may claim to be helping by suggesting your lawyer is dragging his heels. Or your financial adviser may tell you to do something that is against your lawyers recommendation. You should always trust your lawyer above all other parties when it comes to the legal transfer of property.

We are downsizing from our home in Eltham and the buyers lawyers are claiming that there is a possibility that the property was constructed land that was not decontaminated. A high street Eltham lawyer would know that there is no such problem. For the life of me I don't know why the buyers used a national conveyancing practice as opposed to a conveyancing solicitor in Eltham. Having lived in Eltham for six years we know that this is a non issue. Do we contact our local Authority to seek clarification that there is no issue.

It sounds as though you may have a conveyancing firm 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 ailment)

I purchased my flat on 8 April and my personal details is not yet on the land registry website. Need I be worried? My conveyancing solicitor in Eltham said it should be recorded in a couple of weeks. Are transfers in Eltham particularly slow to register?

There is nothing unique when it comes to conveyancing in Eltham registration formalities. Rather than based on location, timescales can differ depending on who lodges the application, whether it is in order and if the Land registry must send notices to any interested parties. As of today roughly three quarters of submission are completed in less than three weeks but occasionally there can be protracted hold-ups. Historically registration is effected once the buyer is living at the property so post completion formalities is not always top priority yet if it is urgent that the the registration takes place urgently then you or your solicitor must communicate with the Registry to express the reasoning for the application to be prioritised.

I've recently found out that there is a flying freehold element on a house I put an offer in last month in what should have been a quick, chain free conveyancing. Eltham is the location of the property. Can you offer any guidance?

Flying freeholds in Eltham are not the norm but are more likely to exist in relation to terraced houses. Even though you don't necessarily need a conveyancing solicitor in Eltham you must be sure that your lawyer goes through the deeds thoroughly. Your lender may require your conveyancing solicitor to take out an indemnity policy. Some of the more diligent conveyancing solicitors in Eltham may ascertain 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.

Is it simple use your search app to choose a conveyancing practitioner in Eltham on the authorised to act for my lender?

First select a mortgage company such as Nationwide Building Society, Leeds Building Society or Nottingham Building Society then type in your location for example Eltham. Conveyancing practices in Eltham and beyond should be listed.

I need to instruct a conveyancing solicitor for sale conveyancing in Eltham. I've chance upon a web site which appears to be the ideal answer If there is a chance to get all this stuff completed via web that would be ideal. Do I need to be wary? What are the potential pitfalls?

As usual with these online conveyancers you need to read ALL the small print - did you notice the extra charge for dealing with the mortgage?
