My partner’s dad is a solicitor. I am hopeful that I will receive mate’s fee for conveyancing, but if not, what kind of figure should I be expecting for conveyancing in Woolwich?
It’s sensible to look for multiple conveyancing quotes. Make use of our comparison tool on this page. The fees will contrast greatly but service levels do differ between property lawyers as is true with most professions.
When can the exchange of contracts happen for purchase conveyancing in Woolwich and am I required to attend the lawyers office?
Where you are round the corner to our conveyancing solicitors in Woolwich you are welcome to come in to sign contracts. However, the firms we work with provide countrywide coverage for conveyancing and give just as comprehensive and professional a job for you when communicating with you digitally. The executing of the sale agreement is not the point of no return. Signing on the dotted line is just a prerequisite for the conveyancer to officially exchange when the time is right, which is ordinarily shortly after signing. The exchange process is is usually a five minute process, although where an extended "chain" is in play, since the process requires the relevant party's solicitor (not necessarily a conveyancing solicitor in Woolwich)to be in the office at the appropriate time.
I'm buying a new build house in Woolwich with the aid of help to buy. The sellers would not budge the price so I negotiated £7000 of additionals instead. The house builders rep suggested that I not inform my lawyer about the side-deal as it could impact my mortgage with the bank. Is this normal?.
All lenders require a Disclosure of Incentives Form from the developer 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.
I decided to have a survey completed on a house in Woolwich prior to instructing conveyancers. I have been informed that there is a flying freehold overhang to the house. The surveyor advised that some mortgage companies tend refuse to issue a loan on a flying freehold house.

Should you wish to telephone us we can look into this further via the appropriate mortgage company. If you lender is happy to lend one our lawyers can help as they are used to dealing with flying freeholds in Woolwich.

I have just appointed agents to market my ground floor apartment in Woolwich. Conveyancing has not commenced, but I have just received a quarterly service charge invoice – Do I pay up?
The sensible thing to do is pay the invoice as usual as all ground rent and service invoices should be allotted on completion, so you will be reimbursed by the buyer for the period running from after the completion date to the subsequent invoice date. Most managing agents will not acknowledge the buyer unless 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. This will smooth the conveyancing process.
Following months of dialogue we simply can't agree with our landlord on how much the lease extension should cost for our flat in Woolwich. Can we issue an application to the Residential Property Tribunal Service?

This usually takes the form of a either your passport or driving licence and a utility bill.
