Q.

I need the cheapest conveyancing solicitors. because we are on a limited budget.

A.

Many online and high street firms purport to offer so-called cheap conveyancing. However extra fees may increase the solicitor's invoice. Charges included in terms and conditions should be reasonable. Our online calculator will create an accurate quote for your buy.

Q.

Santander will be our lender - is there anything we need to consider?

A.

When arranging a mortgage, a mortgage provider will need legal work to be undertaken in relation to the mortgage. Buyers should know that some lenders have opted to reduce the size of their 'solicitor panel', which may result in increased conveyancing costs for purchasers. We will act for many mortgage lenders, ensuring that an additional conveyancing solicitor will not be required to act for your lender.

Q.

What actual conveyancing searches will a conveyancer in Greenhithe order when instructed on a Greenhithe house?

A.

The customary conveyancing procedure will be to obtain Local Authority (personal or official), Drainage and Water Search (CON29DW), Environment Search and Coal Mining Search and, depending on certain criteria, specific local searches, which might include Subsidence.

Q.

If I am intending to buy near Greenhithe, in the parish of Elmley, do we need a chancel search?

A.

Whether you are buying a property in Greenhithe or elsewhere in the county, the lawyer could advise that a chancel search is ordered. Through some Parochial Church Councils have exercised their right to exact chancel repairs on the current owners of lay rectorships, a solicitor cannot state with certainty that a parish which has not imposed liability will not be so in future, so it can be difficult to use this as a guide.

Q.

Which local factors can impact land in Greenhithe. Are these thoroughly investigated?

A.

Many of contaminants caused by environmental concerns has the potential to affect land. Contaminants like other land contamination will be reported on in environmental search results.

Q.

How does the lawyer in Greenhithe report back on the risk of flooding around Greenhithe on a seventies building we are purchasing?

A.

Your property conveyancer will apply for conveyancing and environmental searches that should include Greenhithe flood risk area data information.

Q.

Is there a danger that our offer will be gazumped?

A.

Gazumping describes circumstances where the 1st buyer's offer is, following agreement, later rejected by the house seller, in favour of a higher offer. Although being gazumped is less common in a declining market, there will always be a risk. Consider instructing a proactive solicitor as soon as you can to reduce the chance of your offer being gazumped.

Q.

How soon should we arrange a conveyancing solicitor in Greenhithe?

A.

With few exceptions, instructing as soon as possible is wise, as the legal work can start immediately. Prompt instruction of a conveyancing solicitor could mitigate the chance of your transaction aborting.
