What does 'gazumping' actually mean?

A.

The practice of deciding to reject a previously accepted offer when a better one is made by another buyer is referred to as gazumping. There is almost always a risk of gazumping. Instructing a law firm early, and even before acceptance of an offer is a key first step to reducing this risk.

A.

No. Homeward Legal do not charge any additional charges. Some firms only provide estimates disguised as quotes. You may face a much greater total fee when you have completed.

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?

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.

What do we need to be aware of if we acquire a detached house inside a Bromley planning authority designated conservation area ?

A.

Part of the due diligence for buyers involves procurement of searches of Bromley planning authority to determine conservation area status and the requisite consent for developments. .

Q.

As a consequence of the serious flooding in the UK in April 2012 I am questioning whether environmental searches may not be sufficient?

A.

A thorough Chislehurst solicitor should always get environmental searches if the initial search establishes a significant risk Chislehurst flood risk.

For added area background it could be worth trying to speak to a neighbour.

Q.

My estate agent has put forward a property solicitor. Is it a good idea to instruct this solicitor?

A.

It is common practice for estate agents to recommend a law firm to handle your conveyancing, however, these referrals must be carefully considered, as the agent may prefer to suggest the solicitor willing to pay the highest referral fee, not the best solicitor for your needs.

Q.

Doing ones own conveyancing without the help of a property solicitor in Chislehurst is becoming possible as a seller of a maisonette , but would it be actually be risky ?

A.

In theory, there is no argument why a home mover cannot look after the legal process unaided. That said, a solicitor in Chislehurst is familiar with a large number of assignments including raising additional enquiries or checking for any restrictive covenants some of which require a qualified solicitor. In any event however, firms and their solicitors are legally obligated to be covered by the correct professional indemnity insurance to protect you from any professional errors.
