Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Kidbrooke

I have just been advised by my IFA that my Kidbrooke property lawyer is not on the bank Conveyancing panel. How can I check?

The sensible course of action for you to take is to call your Kidbrooke lawyer directly. It is reasonable to expect your lawyer to inform you of the situation. If they are not on the panel they could put your in touch with solicitors on the approved list of lawyers for your bank.

My partner and I have lately purchased a house in Kidbrooke. We have since encountered a number of problems with the house which we consider were overlooked in the conveyancing searches. Is there anything we can do? What searches should? have been conducted for conveyancing in Kidbrooke?

The query is vague as what problems have arisen and if they are specific to conveyancing in Kidbrooke. Conveyancing searches and investigations undertaken as part of the buying process are designed to help avoid problems. As part of the legal transfer of property, a property owner completes a form referred to as a Seller’s Property Information Form. If the information turns out to be inaccurate, you could possibly take legal action against the seller for any losses that you have suffered. The survey should have identified any problems with the structure of the property. Assuming a detailed survey was carried out and the issues were not identified, you may have a claim against the surveyor. However, if you did not have a full survey, you may be responsible for fixing any defects that have now been noted. We would always encourage buyers to take every possible step to ensure they are completely aware of the condition of a property before purchase regardless of whether they are buying in Kidbrooke.

My wife and I purchased a renovated Victorian property in Kidbrooke. Conveyancing lawyer represented me and Halifax. I did a free Land Registry search last week and I saw a couple of entries: the first freehold, another for leasehold with the matching address. I'd like to know for sure, how can I find out??

You need to read the Freehold register you have again and check the Charges Register as there may be mention of a lease. The best way to be sure that you are also the registered owner of the leasehold and freehold title as well is to check (£3). It is not completely unheard of in Kidbrooke and other locations in the country and poses no real issues for owners other than when they sell they have to account for both freehold and leasehold interests when dealing with purchasers. You can also check the position with your conveyancing lawyer who carried out the work.

How does conveyancing in Kidbrooke differ for new build properties?

Most buyers of new build or newly converted property in Kidbrooke approach us having been asked by the seller to sign contracts and commit to the purchase even before the house is ready to move into. This is because new home sellers in Kidbrooke tend to purchase the land, 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 property lawyers 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 accustomed to new build conveyancing in Kidbrooke or who has acted in the same development.

What does commercial conveyancing in Kidbrooke cover?

Commercial conveyancing in Kidbrooke incorporates a broad array of guidance, offered by regulated solicitors, relating to business property. By way of example, this area of conveyancing can cover the sale or purchase of freehold business premises or, more commonly, the transfer of existing business tenancies or the drafting of new leasing arrangements. Commercial conveyancing solicitors can also offer advice on the sale of business assets, commercial mortgages and the termination of tenancies.

Your search tool is useful but there are many lawyers listed near Kidbrooke being on the bank conveyancing panel. It would be a lot more helpful if you could recommend a specific firm on the conveyancing panel for our lender?

We do not recommend specific Kidbrooke firms as the right Kidbrooke conveyancing solicitor for you depends on where your priorities lie. For example you may require a local firm with Kidbrooke knowledge or you might be looking for the low cost conveyancing. We recommend that you speak to 3 or 4 lawyers listed before you make your choice..
