DIY conveyancing without the support of a Kingston upon Thames conveyancing solicitor looks to be possible as a buyer and seller of a house. However, would it really be practical ?


There are no arguments why you shouldn't do the conveyancing without a trained Kingston upon Thames solicitor.

That said, a property solicitor is in charge of a long list of activities ranging from chasing retention releases or checking the lease some of which need adequate training.


Does my conveyancer in Kingston upon Thames order any searches on the London Victorian semi-detached home I want to buy?


If you are getting a mortgage the building society of bank mandates specific searches, including these searches - Local Authority Search, Drainage Search (Con29DW) and Environment Search, and perhaps particular searches, like SIM Search.


Will a local conveyancer in Kingston upon Thames conduct personal or official searches on my home purchase?


The property solicitor will make a recommendation about the most appropriate course of action, depending on things like building society requirements. If personal searches are used a conveyancing solicitor might perhaps try to find a search agent wit local experience, for instance, PP Searches West London, 9, Aragon Road, Kingston, KT2 5QA Tel: 07970818078.


If we are intending to purchase near Kingston upon Thames, in the parish of Hornsey, do we need a chancel search?


Your lawyer may suggest that a chancel search be taken out, whichever parish where the residence being bought is found. Although some Parochial Church Councils have decided to exact chancel repairs on the current owners of land subject to chancel liability, it is not possible to be certain that a parish where repair costs have not been paid before, that this will not automatically be the case for future owners. In the event that chancel liability may apply, your solicitor might recommend insurance rather than pulling out of the purchase.


We need to complete this purchase as soon as possible, how can we aim for a fast conveyancing process?


It is well established that a fast conveyancing transaction is crucial to is to use a experienced solicitor. That said, there are several things you, as the buyer, can also do. These include:

  • encouraging your solicitor to carry out searches promptly
  • promptly answering your solicitor's questions
  • clarifying your mortgage lender's requirements


What are fixtures and fittings?


Commonly, fixtures are permanently fixed to walls and other surfaces and fixtures can be more easily removed. Completion or agreement of a fixtures and fittings form is unfortunately often left to the last minute, when a dispute may jeopordise the transaction. This makes resolving any confusion between buyer and seller on this issue so urgent.


Our purchase will complete on 21st December, how is stamp duty calculated?


Stamp Duty in Kingston upon Thames is based on the valuation. On a £649000 home, stamp duty will be £25960.*
