Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Keston

It may have been a long time coming a loan agreement from HSBC for the refinancing of my 2 room garden flat is to be issued within the next few days. Can you suggest a cheap conveyancing lawyer in Keston?

This site is not designed to aid those in pursuit of the cheapest conveyancing solicitors in Keston. Our intention is to offer excellent value conveyancing but our intention is not to advertise as being the cheapest. Avoid the trap of appointing organisations teasing you with low cost conveyancing in Keston. At best, in being led by cheap conveyancing, you will end up with what you pay for and at worst it will result in you invoiced for extras and still not end up with the service you were looking for.

We are soon to exchange on the purchase of a house in Keston but as a consequence of damage from some water damage at the property I have managed to agree reparation from the seller of £2k by way of a deduction in the price. I had intended this to be dealt with as part of a side agreement however Santander are not allowing this. Should they have been involved?

Your conveyancing practitioner that is on the Santander approved list is required to disclose to Santander of any amendments to the sale price. If you prohibit your conveyancing practitioner to notify the price change to Santander then they would have to discontinue acting for you. In addition, Santander and you would have to appoint a new property lawyer for your conveyancing in Keston.

I purchased my flat on 5 September and my personal details is not yet registered. Need I be worried? My conveyancing solicitor in Keston advises it will be recorded in less than a month. Are properties in Keston uniquely lengthy to register?

As far as conveyancing in Keston is concerned, registration is no quicker or slower than the rest of the country. Rather than based on location, timescales can differ according to who lodges the application, whether there are errors and if the Land registry need to notify any other persons or bodies. As of today approximately 80% of submission are fully addressed in less than three weeks but some can be subject to extensive delays. Historically registration is effected after the purchaser has moved in to the property so an expedited registration is not always primary concern yet if it is urgent that the the registration takes place urgently then you or your conveyancer can speak with the land registry and explain the circumstances.

I'm purchasing my first flat in Keston with a mortgage from Clydesdale. The builders would not reduce the price so I negotiated five thousand pounds worth of extras instead. The property agent advised me not disclose to my solicitor about the side-deal as it would affect my mortgage with the lender. Do I keep my lawyer in the dark?.

All lenders require a Disclosure of Incentives Form from the developer 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.

I've recently found out that there is a flying freehold element on a property I put an offer in last month in what was supposed to be a straight forward, no chain conveyancing. Keston is where the house is located. Is there any guidance you can impart?

Flying freeholds in Keston 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 Keston you would need to get your solicitor to go through the deeds diligently. Your lender may require your conveyancing solicitor to take out an indemnity policy. Some of the more diligent conveyancing solicitors in Keston may decide 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.

Given that I will soon part with 450k on a house in Keston I would like to have a conversation with the solicitor concerning thehome move before instructing the firm. Can this be arranged?

Absolutely - it is our preference to talk to you we do not take any clients on without you first talking to the conveyancer who will be conducting your property ownership legalities in Keston.There is no ‘factory style conveyancing’ - each client is an important person, not a file number. The practices that we put you in touch with believe that the fees you are provided with for your conveyancing in Keston should be the amount on the final invoice that you are charged.
