Recently asked questions about conveyancing in West Malling

Do I have to visit the offices of the solicitor to sign the mortgage deed? If so, I will appoint a lawyer who conducts conveyancing in West Malling so that I can pop in to their offices if required.

These days conveyancing panel lawyers for banks undertake the vast majority of work via the post, internet or over the phone. This enables them to undertake the legal work for your home move no matter where you live in the country. Nevertheless you should check if you can still book an appointment to visit conveyancing lawyer if you prefer.

I am selling our house in West Malling and the buyers lawyers are claiming that there is a possibility that the property was built on contaminated land. Any high street West Malling conveyancer would know this is not the case. It does beg the question why the purchasers used a national conveyancing outfit rather than a conveyancing solicitor in West Malling. We have lived in West Malling for 4 years we know of no issue. Should we get in touch with our local Authority to obtain confirmation need.

It sounds as though you may have a conveyancing firm already. What do they say? You should check with 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 life insurance to cover that same illness)

I got the keys to my flat on 10 September and my personal details are still not registered. Any reason for this? My conveyancing solicitor in West Malling expressed confidence that it would be recorded in a couple of weeks. Are titles in West Malling particularly slow to register?

There is nothing unique when it comes to conveyancing in West Malling registration formalities. Rather than based on location, timeframes can differ according to who lodges the application, whether it is in order and whether the Land registry communicate with any interested persons or bodies. Currently approximately three quarters of submission are fully addressed within two weeks but occasionally there can be extensive hold-ups. Historically registration takes place after the new owner has moved in to the premises so registration formalities is not usually top priority but where there is a degree of urgency associated with the registration then you or your conveyancer must speak with the land registry and explain the circumstances.

I'm buying my first flat in West Malling benefiting from help to buy. The developers would not budge the price so I negotiated £7000 of extras instead. The estate agent suggested that I not reveal to my conveyancer about the side-deal as it would adversely affect my mortgage with Leeds Building Society. Is this normal?.

All lenders require a Disclosure of Incentives Form from the builder of any new build, converted or renovated property, It is available online from the Lenders’ Handbook page on the CML website. CML form is completed and handed to the lender's surveyor when the inspection is done.

Lenders have different policies on incentives. Some accept none at all, cash or physical, while others will accept cash incentives up to 5%.

Hard to understand why the representative of a builder would be suggesting you withold information from a solicitor when all this will be clearly visible on forms the builder has to supply to its solicitor, the buyer's solicitor and the surveyor.

Taking into account that I am about to spend hundreds of thousands of pounds on a house in West Malling I wish to talk to a lawyer regarding thetransaction in advance of instructing the firm. Is this something that you can arrange?

We could not agree more - we would be delighted to talk to you we do not take any clients on without you first talking to the solicitor who will be conducting your conveyancing in West Malling.There is no ‘factory style conveyancing’ - each client is unique person, not a case reference. The practices that we put you in touch with believe that the figure you are calculated and presented to you for your conveyancing in West Malling should be the figure that you are charged.

We are 17 days into a freehold purchase having been directed to conveyancers by the high street agent to carry out the conveyancing in West Malling. I am not happy. Can you help me find new solicitors?

A conveyancer would have to be very poor to suggest diss instructing them. Has your mortgage offer been issued? If so you need to advise them of the new contact details and get the loan are re-issued. Your conveyancer needs to be on the banks approved list to avoid supplemental expenses and delays. That should be your starting point. Our search tool will help you find a bank approved lawyer for your conveyancing in West Malling
