Q.

How do I find affordable conveyancing?

A.

Q.

In a few weeks I am anticipating to be moving out of our terraced property near Chessington to our next flat in Surbiton . What is the right point to appoint a removals firm?

A.

We would usually recommend that home sellers wait booking a removals company until after exchange of contracts because typically a move date wont have been confirmed.

Many residential removals firms charge a rearrangement fine . Local removals companies include Boyd's Removals, 12 Mount Rd, Chessington, KT9 1JG Phone: 020 8288 8657 or Dodd Removals, 509 Hook Road, Chessington, KT9 1QW Tel: 020 83910468.

Q.

Do I need to opt for the firm of solicitors who generally works with by the estate agent?

The agent will push a conveyancing firm. However, if the agent is paid a fee by the solicitor, some agents may 'recommend' the conveyancer who pays out the highest referral fee, not the law firm with the best reputation.

Q.

Will I need a chancel search? I am purchasing a house in Chessington.

A.

Some owners in Chessington can be required to contribute towards repairs to older church buildings. Insurance may be available to protect a buyer should a Chessington Parochial Church Council enforce liability. Churches in the local area include Hook and St Mary the Virgin.

Q.

Are Chessington any conservation areas going to constrain us?

A.

With around 9,000 conservation areas throughout the country, the neighbourhoods located near Chessington will include numerous areas of 'special architectural and historic interest' recognised as protected. Your solicitor will be able to offer more information.

Q.

How can I find out additional data about the conservation areas in Chessington and Chessington?

A.

English Heritage, a government body, have created a list of the state of repair of conservation areas. Local Chessington conservation area issues, for example property boundaries or ugly parking meters are handled by the local authority (Kingston upon Thames).

Q.

Are buyers often gazumped in Chessington?

A.

This takes place when a seller accepts the first purchaser's offer and then dismisses it, selecting instead a higher offer. Because acceptance of an offer is not binding on the seller until exchange of contracts, there is a chance of being gazumped. The first step in reducing the chance that gazumping will effect you is to instruct a solicitor as soon as possible.

Q.

What kind of fact finding regarding the potential risk of a flood in the Kingston upon Thames area will a lawyer in Chessington look over on a Victorian property we are going to purchase?

A.

An experienced conveyancer conducts standard protocol conveyancing and environmental searches, which include Chessington area flood risk data. At the time of writing publication on the Environment Agency website do not list any flood warnings in Chessington.
