Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Meopham

In the event thatI were to purchase a simple residential propertyin Meopham mortgage fee and have no survey and no conveyancing searches how much could I expect to to save on my conveyancing in Meopham?

Any savings you would gain will be isolated to the disbursement for searches. A conveyancer still got to do everything else - money laundering, communicating with the sellers solicitor, stamp duty return, register the property etc. A marginal saving might be made by not having to register a charge however it won't be significant.

My flat in Meopham is up for sale and I have a purchaser. Will my lawyer have to be required to be on the Principality conveyancing panel in order to deal with the discharge of my mortgage?

Ordinarily, even if your lawyer is not on the Principality conveyancing panel they can still act for you on your sale. It might be that the lender will not release the original deeds (if applicable and increasingly irrelevant) until after the mortgage is paid off. You should speak to your lawyer directly before you start the process though to ensure that there is no problem as lenders are changing their conditions fairly frequently in recent years.

We are selling our house in Meopham and the buyers lawyers are claiming that there is a possibility that the property was built land that was not decontaminated. A high street Meopham conveyancer would know this is not the case. It does beg the question why the buyers are using an online conveyancing practice rather than a conveyancing solicitor in Meopham. Having lived in Meopham for many years we know that this is a non issue. Is it a good idea to get in touch with our local Authority to obtain confirmation that there is no issue.

It would appear that you have a conveyancing solicitor already. Are they able to advise? You need to 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 ailment)

How does conveyancing in Meopham differ for new build properties?

Most buyers of new build or newly converted property in Meopham approach us having been asked by the housebuilder to exchange contracts and commit to the purchase even before the property is ready to move into. This is because house builders in Meopham typically purchase 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 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 used to new build conveyancing in Meopham or who has acted in the same development.

I'm refinancing my current property to a BTL mortgage with Barclays Direct and I will use the ballance of the raised equity towards another property. The neighborhood we are looking at is Meopham. Will your conveyancers be able to act for the two mortgage companies and tie in the conveyances?

Make use of our comparison tool on this site to be sure that the conveyancers are on the relevant lender panels. On the basis that they are your solicitor should be able to connect the two transactions but you should talk with you solicitor and make apparent your expectations and requirements.

My husband and I are one month into a freehold purchase having been directed to a firm by the high street agent to execute conveyancing in Meopham. I am am very frustrated with the quality of service. Can you you assist me in finding new conveyancers?

A solicitor would have to be really poor to suggest replacing them. Has your loan offer been generated? In the event that it has you will need to make them aware of the new contact details and ensure the mortgage documents are re-issued. Your new conveyancer needs to be on the lenders approved list to avoid supplemental expenses and frustration. That should be your starting point. The find a solicitor tool will help you find a bank approved conveyancer for your home move in Meopham
