I have recentlybecome aware that Wolstenholmes have been shut down. They carried out my conveyancing in Meopham for a purchase of a freehold house 10 months ago. How can I be sure that the property is not still registered in the name of the former proprietor?

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 developer to sign contracts and commit to the purchase even before the house is ready to move into. This is because developers in Meopham tend to 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've recently found out that there is a flying freehold issue on a house I have offered on a fortnight ago in what should have been a quick, chain free conveyancing. Meopham is the location of the property. Can you shed any light on this issue?

Flying freeholds in Meopham 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 Meopham you would need to get your solicitor to go through the deeds thoroughly. Your bank may require your conveyancing solicitor to take out an indemnity policy. Some of the more diligent conveyancing solicitors in Meopham may determine 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 property.

I'm remortgaging my primary house to a BTL loan with HSBC Bank and intend to use the remaining equity towards further house. The area we are interested in is Meopham. Will your lawyers be able to act for the two mortgage companies and tie in the conveyances?

Do use our search tool on this page to check that the conveyancers are approved by both banks. Having checked that they are the lawyer should be able to simultaneously deal with the two transactions but you should have a chat with you lawyer and communicate your desired outcome and needs.

I have today placed an offer on an apartment in Meopham and the mortgage adviser that we are dealing with suggested his solicitor. He quoted £800 including VAT and 3rd party costs. Does this sound steep?

You should not rely on a single estimate. You should seek like-for-like quotes for your conveyancing in Meopham. Then select one that you trust and crucially, is on the approved list of the bank that you have applied for a mortgage from.
