Me and my partner are purchasing our first home. Our solicitor has calledto see if we want to take out additional conveyancing searches. We are really unsure what's recommended for conveyancing in Hartfield

The number and type of Hartfield conveyancing searches should be dictated entirely on the property, the location, the likelihood of any of these risks, your familiarity of the region and risks, your overall appetite to risk. What is important is that you properly comprehend what information the searches could supply. You may then decide if you consider that you need that search. Where you are unsure, ask your property lawyer to guide you.

We are selling our property in Hartfield and according to the buyers it appears that there is a possibility that the property was constructed on contaminated land. Any high street Hartfield conveyancer would know this is not the case. For the life of me I don't know why the buyers are using an internet conveyancing practice as opposed to a conveyancing solicitor in Hartfield. We have lived in Hartfield for 4 years we know of no issue. Is it a good idea to get in touch with our local Authority to obtain clarification that the buyers are looking for.

It would appear that you have a conveyancing firm currently acting for you. What do they say? You should enquire of 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 sickness)

How does conveyancing in Hartfield differ for newly converted properties?

Most buyers of new build premises in Hartfield contact us having been asked by the developer to sign contracts and commit to the purchase even before the residence is completed. This is because new home sellers in Hartfield typically acquire the site, plan the estate and want to get the plots sold off as they are building the properties. Buyers, therefore, will have to exchange contracts without actually seeing the house they are buying. To reduce the chances of losing the property, buyers should instruct conveyancing solicitors as soon as the property is reserved and mortgage applications should be submitted quickly. Due to the fact that it could be several months and even years between exchange of contracts and completion, the mortgage offer may need to be extended. It would be wise to use a lawyer who specialises in new build conveyancing especially if they are used to new build conveyancing in Hartfield or who has acted in the same development.

Yesterday I discovered that there is a flying freehold issue on a property I have offered on two weeks back in what should have been a simple, no chain conveyancing. Hartfield is where the house is located. Can you offer any advice?

Flying freeholds in Hartfield are not the norm but are more likely to exist in relation to terraced houses. Even where you use a solicitor outside Hartfield you would need to get your solicitor to go through the deeds thoroughly. Your bank may require your conveyancing solicitor to take out an indemnity policy. Some of the more diligent conveyancing solicitors in Hartfield 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.

Been looking for a solicitor for leasehold sale conveyancing in Hartfield. I'm selling, simple no mortgage to redeem, no rush, currently empty. Got an estimate from a conveyancing practitioner for £900 excluding VAT which is a little high given that its so straightforward. Can I pay less for conveyancing in Hartfield?

Considering it’s a sale only, £450 + VAT would be about the lowest for a Hartfield solicitor firm.
