Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Kew

Recently contacted my conveyancing lawyer in Kew who completed the legal work two years ago requesting a conveyancing costs illustration based on an identical type of house sale & purchase (a leasehold property and a freehold premises) of almost identical values with a loan from Platform Home Loans Ltd. It looks as though am now being quoted double. Stick with what I know or should I seek out a cheaper online conveyancer?

The estimate does seem a little overpriced. If you shop around you could shave off some of the expense by say £100 plus VAT. That being said, providing that you were content with the legal work the firm provided you mightcome to rue opting for an an untested conveyancer. Don't forget to check that the firm can represent Platform Home Loans Ltd.

The Kew conveyancing firm handling our Kew conveyancing has uncovered an inconsistency when comparing the assumptions in the valuation survey and what is in the conveyancing documents. My lawyer informs me that he is duty bound to ensure that the lender is OK with this discrepancy and is content to go ahead. Is my lawyer’s approach right?

Your lawyer must comply with the UK Finance Lenders’ Handbook provisions which do require that your lawyer disclose any incorrect assumptions in the lender’s valuation report and the legal papers. Should you refuse to allow your lawyer to make the appropriate notification then your lawyer will have no choice but to discontinue acting for both parties.

Should our lawyer be making enquiries about flooding as part of the conveyancing in Kew.

The risk of flooding is if increasing concern for solicitors conducting conveyancing in Kew. There are those who buy a property in Kew, completely aware that at some time, it may suffer from flooding. However, aside from the physical damage, where a property is at risk of flooding, it may be difficult to get a mortgage, suitable building insurance, or sell the premises. There are steps that can be taken during the course of a property purchase to forewarn the buyer.

Lawyers are not qualified to give advice on flood risk, however there are a various checks that can be initiated by the buyer or on a buyer’s behalf which will give them a better appreciation of the risks in Kew. The conventional set of completed inquiry forms supplied to a buyer’s solicitor (where the Conveyancing Protocol is adopted) includes a usual inquiry of the vendor to determine if the property has suffered from flooding. If flooding has previously occurred and is not revealed by the seller, then a buyer may commence a claim for damages stemming from an misleading reply. The buyer’s lawyers may also carry out an enviro report. This should indicate if there is any known flood risk. If so, further inquiries should be carried out.

Given that I will soon spend 450k on a property in Kew I would like to talk to a lawyer regarding thehome move before appointing the firm. Is this something that you can arrange?

We could not agree more - it is our preference to talk to you we do not take any clients on without you speaking to the solicitor who will be carrying out your conveyancing in Kew.There is no ‘factory style conveyancing’ - each client is unique individual, not a case reference. The practices that we put you in touch with believe that the fees you are quoted for your conveyancing in Kew should be the figure that you are charged.
