Q.

We need the cheapest conveyancing solicitors, we are on a tight budget.

A.

Many online and high street firms claim to offer so-called 'the cheapest conveyancing quotes', but additional costs are frequently hidden in the solicitor's terms, left unregarded by busy homeowners Your conveyancing quote should, in addition, define third party costs, termed disbursements, to be paid. Extra costs ought to be reasonable. They be applicable if the conveyancer must complete unanticipated additional work for you, which could not be anticipated at the start of the process.

Q.

Do you need a chancel search? We are purchasing a home on the same road as a 1300s priory in Erith.

A.

Repair costs resulting from chancel liability can total hundreds of thousands of pounds. Insurance may be available to protect a buyer should a Erith Parochial Church Council enforce liability. Erith churches include Christ Church, Northumberland Heath St Paul and St John The Baptist.

Q.

Which of the Erith lender panels are your solicitors members of?

A.

We work beside many lenders. A number of mortgage specialists operate in Erith, like Alexander Mortgage Services, 257 Blackfen Rd, Sidcup, DA15 8PR, Finance Now Ltd, Crown House/Home Gdns, Dartford, DA1 1DZ, and Finance Planning Group, Innovation Centre/2 Veridion Way, Erith, DA18 4AL.

Q.

I am purchasing a house in South Mymms. Will a chancel search be needed?

A.

Your conveyancing solicitor may suggest that a chancel search is ordered. In Erith's much older areas, chancel repair dues can be collected on the current owners of a property where Parochial Church Councils may have not done so in the past. For property in the parish of South Mymms, it is not safe to rely on the historical behaviour of the parish council alone as a guide.

Q.

For fast conveyancing to buy a £310,000 property, what do we need to do?

A.

Essential to faster conveyancing is to instruct a experienced conveyancing solicitor. Additionally, there are a range of tasks you can do, such as, keeping in regular contact with the conveyancing solicitor, ordering a property survey early in the transaction and quickly answering your conveyancing solicitor's questions.

Q.

In the next month we are hoping to be moving from our semi detached house in Erith to our next abode in Bexleyheath . What is the optimum stage to choose a house removal firm?

A.

We would usually advise that buyers put off booking a removals company until the point where the contracts have exchanged because in all probability the firm moving date will not have been agreed. Many residential removals firms will levy a late cancellation penalty . Try Kelly's Self Storage, Unit 1a Europa Trading Est/Fraser Rd, Erith, DA8 1QL on 0800 652 0323 or Crofton Park, Unit 9B Europa House/Europa Trading Est/Fraser Rd, Erith, DA8 1QL Phone: 01322 440013.

Q.

What do fixtures and fittings refer to?

A.

House purchasers are regularly frustrated by a lack of clarity over what fixtures and fittings are included in a purchase. This may not considered until it is too late, hence the importance of a complete fixtures and fittings form, agreed by both parties.

Q.

How long will it take my conveyancing solicitor to carry out the legal process on a detached Edwardian property we are intending to buy?

A.

The conveyancing process can take anywhere between 3 weeks and twelve weeks, based on any number of factors e.g. the speed of the vendor's conveyancer, or re-negotiations following a survey.
