Q.

How do we get the best rates for conveyancing in New Beckenham for a £62,000 property?

A.

Various firms claim to offer so-called cheap conveyancing quotes. Often extra fees may increase your final bill. Extra charges found in the small print needs to be fair and reasonable.

Q.

Should you get a chancel search? I am purchasing a New Beckenham flat on the same street as a church constructed in the 12th Century.

A.

Repair costs resulting from chancel liability can total hundreds of thousands of pounds. Some names or words such as 'glebe' give an indication of a property's history, and thus whether chancel liability may apply.

Q.

Does your firm conduct auction conveyancing in New Beckenham?

A.

Our company is highly experienced with auction buyers and sellers. Very often unusually constructed lots e. g. those with expensive covenants, are included in property auctions which tend to demand increased fact-finding. We therefore strongly advocate that auction buyers formally appoint a good lawyer prior to the auction day to allow for a thorough review. Post auction day arrives a lawyer will be able to concentrate on get through the auction conveyancing process inside a month as typically required by the terms of sale.

Q.

Are purchasers regularly gazumped in New Beckenham?

A.

Gazumping describes circumstances where an offer is rejected, following initial acceptance, by the house seller, choosing instead a higher offer. Because acceptance of an offer is not binding on the seller until exchange of contracts, there is a chance of being gazumped. Instructing your conveyancing solicitor early, and even before acceptance of an offer should help to mitigate this risk.

Q.

Are costs for obtaining landlord's consent to alterations fees or disbursements?

A.

Disbursements and fees should be clearly stated on the quote for your conveyancing. These costs are fees not disbursements. Consent can be difficult to arrange, but the fee may be included in a quote for your conveyancing.

Q.

In regards to the fact that 2012 was second wettest year since on record I am asking whether conveyancing searches won't be detailed enough?

A.

The New Beckenham conveyancing solicitor should always apply for environmental searches if the initial search flags up any kind of the local New Beckenham flood risk

For greater peace of mind you could always contact a neighbour of the property.

Q.

How early is it appropriate to find a solicitor to handle our sale?

A.

In simple terms, the sooner you instruct a conveyancing solicitor, the better, as the legal work can begin immediately. Instructing your solicitor sooner for a purchase enables your offer may be taken more seriously if you already have a solicitor instructed, or, if you are selling a property, information, especially from slow third-parties, can be requested even prior to accepting an offer.

Q.

What sort of research about the risk of local flooding to properties in Bromley will my solicitor in New Beckenham report on?

A.

An essential part of the conveyancing process of buying a property involves the conveyancer applying for conveyancing searches (environmental) that set out certain details regarding the local New Beckenham flood risk. On (02-Nov-11) there were no warnings around the at the Pool River at Bell Green and New Beckenham, London Boroughs of Lewisham and Bromley
