Is contaminated land an issue for houses in Chislehurst?


A range of contaminants may spoil Chislehurst property, like waste disposal sites. An environmental search will offer more detail.


When in the conveyancing process is it appropriate to arrange a solicitor in Chislehurst?


Whether buying or selling, the sooner the better, as conveyancing involves several tasks that can be performed straight away. Instructing a firm to handle your Chislehurst conveyancing early for a sale allows information, especially from slow third-parties, can be requested even prior to accepting an offer, whereas if you are buying you can shave days off the process by having the details of your instructed solicitor ready when you make an offer.


If we are intending to purchase in the parish of Ruislip, will we need a chancel search?


The Chislehurst conveyancing solicitor may suggest a chancel search. Chancel repair has the potential to be charged on the current owners of a building where Parochial Church Councils (PCCs) have not imposed the same liability on the last owners, so the solicitor will be unable to make any guarantees, and will recommend insurance.


What average time should it take the property solicitor to finish all of the legal formalities on a flat in a building in Chislehurst?


Getting contracts exchanged can take anywhere between 3 weeks and 3 months dependent on a number of factors, for example the efficiency of the vendor's conveyancing solicitor, or the completeness of the management information. Our solicitors are highly results-focused with the goal of completing in as little time as we possibly can.


How much is the council tax on a converted dwelling in Chislehurst?


In most cases a conveyancing report on title should provide the Bromley council tax band. The latest council tax rates for Chislehurst are set out in detail at the Bromley council site. At the time of writing on 13/11/2012 rates for all bands are:

  • Band A - £865.00

I am buying with Darlington Building Society, what do we need to consider?


House buyers should consider that, recently, a number of lenders have reduced their 'solicitor panel', resulting in greater legal costs for purchasers in cases where the chosen solicitor cannot act for their lender, and another must also be instructed. Homeward Legal, though, are able to act for many mortgage lenders so that you will not be required to pay your lender's legal costs.


Can you recommend how we get out of paying stamp duty on buying a house in Chislehurst?


Stamp duty reduction should be treated with extreme caution in Chislehurst, as such schemes are often uneconomical and , if the scheme fails, you may be charged a penalty of up to 100% of the stamp duty amount owed.
