I am buying in Kew with HSBC Bank - what do we need to be aware of?

A.

Recently, a number of lenders have reduced the number of firms able to act for them. Homeward Legal can act for all large mortgage lenders so that you will not be required to pay legal fees for your lender's solicitor.

Q.

Bookshops now have plenty of publications giving details on doing the legal work yourself e.g. House Buying, Selling and Conveyancing: How to Save Estate Agent and Solicitor Fees When Buying or Selling Property . Do we have to use conveyancing solicitor in Kew ?

A.

Technically, there is no argument at all why a home seller should not conduct the legal work yourself. However, a lawyer is familiar with a huge array of roles from ranging from interpreting replies to enquiries and communicating with managing agents some of which require a qualified solicitor. Despite that firms and their solicitors are required by their regulator to obtain indemnity cover that protects you from any professional omissions on the part of the solicitor.

Q.

How do we stop gazumping?

A.

Gazumping occurs when an offer is accepted, and then rejected, by the property owner, choosing instead a higher offer. Although gazumping is less common in a declining market, there will always be a danger. The first step in reducing the chance that gazumping will effect you is to instruct your property solicitor early, and even before acceptance of an offer.
