It is not advisable to proceed with a house purchase without a solicitor. The council's solicitor are not acting for you. You need a solicitor for a number reasons. One of which is to verify what plans the Council have for repairs and refurbishment for the next five years. Many leaseholders have been stung for contributions of thousands of pounds.

Covenants that are restrictive in nature can be picked up when reviewing land registry title as part of the legal transfer of property in Meopham.

I decided to have a survey done on a property in Meopham ahead of appointing lawyers. I have been informed that there is a flying freehold element to the property. The surveyor has said that some banks may not give a mortgage on a flying freehold home.

It varies from the lender to lender. HSBC has different requirements for example to Nationwide. If you contact us we can check via the relevant lender. If you lender is happy to lend one our lawyers can assist as they are accustomed to dealing with flying freeholds in Meopham. Conveyancing can be more complicated and therefore you should check with your conveyancing solicitor in Meopham to see if the conveyancing costs will increase in light of this.

My partner is buying a shared ownership flat in Meopham. He was given a quote by the conveyancer recommended by the selling agents totaling £1245 . It was ten years ago since I sold and purchased a house and it cost was £495. Have fees really increased to that extent?

We would recommend that you contact two or three local Meopham conveyancing solicitors requesting prices. You should base your choice not just on cost, but on promptness and on how comprehensive the reply is.
