Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Tonbridge

I am purchasing a property for cash in Tonbridge. I have resided for the last 15 years in Tonbridge. Conveyancing searches are expensive. Given that I know the area and road intimately must I have all the conveyancing searches?

Provided that you do not need a mortgage, then almost all of the Tonbridge conveyancing searches are at your discretion. Your lawyer will 'advise', no-doubt strongly, that you should have searches completed, but he is duty bound to take that path of advice. Do take into account; if you are going to dispose of the house one day, it will be of importance to your prospective purchaser what the searches reveal. There are plenty of instances where properties with day to day issues can still throw up negative search results. A good conveyancing solicitor in Tonbridge will be able to give you some sensible advice concerning this.

This question may be naive but I am new to the process as FTB of a two bedroom flat in Tonbridge. Do I collect the keys to the premises on the completion date from my lawyer? If this is the case, I will use a local conveyancing solicitor in Tonbridge?

Your solicitors will transfer the completion advance to the vendor’s conveyancers, and shortly after the monies have arrived, you will be invited to collect the keys from the selling Agents and move into your new home. Usually this happens between 1 and 3pm.

The Land Registry need to see this evidence before they will remove the Santander mortgage from the register. Santander, and any evidence they send you, will determine the action you need to take.

  1. but are not moving to another property
  2. where Santander has sent the Land Registry the discharge electronically, and
  3. Santander has instructed the Land Registry to do so
The Land Registry will send you a letter confirming that your Santander mortgage has been paid off.

I’m about to sell my basement apartment in Tonbridge. Conveyancing has not commenced, but I have just received a quarterly service charge demand – Do I pay up?

The sensible thing to do is clear the service charge as you normally would given that all ground rent and service invoices will be allotted as part of the financial calculations for completion monies, so you should recover the relevant percentage by the buyer for the period running from after the completion date to the subsequent invoice date. Most management companies will not acknowledge the buyer until the service charges have been paid and are up to date, so it is important for both buyer and seller for the seller to show that they are up to date. Having a clear account will assist your cause and will leave you no worse off financially.
