Q.

We need to find a discount conveyancing estimate in Chislehurst. because we are on a limited budget.

A.

Many firms advertise 'the cheapest conveyancing quotes'. However extra fees are frequently hidden in small print. Extra fees listed in terms and conditions should be fair and reasonable. Get a quote using the Homeward Legal quote calculator for the property you are buying.

Q.

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

A.

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.

Q.

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

A.

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.

Q.

Is contaminated land an issue for houses in Chislehurst?

A.

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

Q.

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

A.

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.

Q.

Do you advise that I get a chancel liability search when you are buying a flat conversion on the same road as a glebe in Chislehurst?

A.

The result of a landmark case in 2003 reaffirmed that 'lay impropriators' of property must fund church repairs. A chancel search is used to check that such a liability exists. Liability is more common in some parts of the country. Your solicitor will suggest an appropriate indemnity policy to address chancel liability. Church lands in this area where chancel liability may apply include Christ Church, St Nicholas and The Annunciation.

Q.

Does your solicitors company specialise the conveyancing for auction properties in Chislehurst?

A.

Our firm is familiar with residential property auction protocols. Typically specialist buildings such as development land are purchased in property auctions which require extended legwork before completing. We therefore strongly advise purchasers to appoint a suitable lawyer before the auction day to allow time for a full review of the lot.

Immediately following the auction day your experienced lawyer is thoroughly prepared for concluding the conveyancing within 4 weeks as typically required .

Q.

I want to find extra fast Chislehurst conveyancing solicitors - is that your company?

A.

Homeward Legal has a very proactive approach to completing the legal process as rapidly as possible.

Our property lawyers approach is to use advanced technology and productivity systems . Critically we assign a company incentivised to communicate to the whole property chain .
