I am expecting a DIP from Principality this week so we can work out what to offer on a property we like as otherwise we only have online calculators to go by (which aren't taking into account credit checks etc). Do Principality recommend any Thamesmead solicitors on the Principality conveyancing panel, or is it better to go independently?

You will need to appoint Thamesmead solicitors independently although you'll need to choose one on the Principality conveyancing panel. The solicitor represents both you and Principality through the process.

What does a local search inform me concerning the property I am purchasing in Thamesmead?

Thamesmead conveyancing often starts with the applying for local authority searches directly from your local Authority or via a personal search company for example PSG The local search is essential in every Thamesmead conveyancing purchase; that is if you don’t want any unpleasant surprises after you move into your new home. The search will supply information on, amongst other things, details on planning applications relevant to the premises (whether granted or refused), building control history, any enforcement action, restrictions on permitted development, nearby road schemes, contaminated land and radon gas; in all a total of thirteen subject areas.

3 months have elapsed following my purchase conveyancing in Thamesmead took place. I have checked the Land Registry site which shows that I paid £150,000 when infact I paid £215,000. Why the discrepancy?

The price paid figure is taken from the application to register the purchase. It is the figure included in the Transfer (the legal deed which transfers the asset from one person to the other) and referred to as the 'consideration' or purchase price. You can report an error in the price paid figure using the LR online form. In most cases errors result from typos so at first glance the figure. Do report it so they can double check and advise.

Yesterday I discovered that there is a flying freehold issue on a house I have offered on a fortnight ago in what was supposed to be a quick, chain free conveyancing. Thamesmead is the location of the property. What do you suggest?

Flying freeholds in Thamesmead are rare but are more likely to exist in relation to terraced houses. Even though you don't necessarily need a conveyancing solicitor in Thamesmead you must be sure that your lawyer goes through the deeds very carefully. Your mortgage company may require your conveyancing solicitor to take out an indemnity policy. Some of the more diligent conveyancing solicitors in Thamesmead 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.

My husband and I are new on the property ladder - agreed a price, yet the agent informed us that the vendor will only move forward if we appoint their chosen conveyancers as they want a ‘quick sale’. My instinct tells me that we should use a local conveyancer accustomed to conveyancing in Thamesmead

It is unlikely the sellers are behind this. If they want ‘a quick sale', taking such a hostile approach to a motivated buyer is counter productive. Speak to the owners direct and make sure they understand (a)you are serious buyers (b)you are ready to progress, with mortgage lined up © you have nothing to sell (d) you wish to move quickly (e)however you are going to use your preferred Thamesmead conveyancing solicitors - as opposed tothe ones that will provide the negotiator at the agency a kickback or achieve conveyancing figures pre-set by head office.

Searching for a conveyancing solicitor in Thamesmead. I thought I had one sorted but he's not on the panel for Nottingham. It would appear that nowadays most building societies only allow conveyancers on their panel. Very frustrating restricting the choice for the paying public. Can you suggest a cheap Thamesmead property lawyer that will help us as well as represent Nottingham?

LenderPanel.com is restricted to being a directory service for property lawyers who wish to be listed as being on the approved conveyancing panel for Nottingham in certain areas for instance Thamesmead . We dont recommend any specific conveyancing practitioner.
