I need to find a lawyer that offers cheap conveyancing. What do we need to consider?


Many property lawyers promote cheap conveyancing. Unfortunately additional fees can pad the final bill. Extra costs found in the solicitor's terms should be reasonable and clear. We provide quotes, not estimates, and clearly state the fees for a standard conveyancing.


I am intending to buy a barn conversion in Smarden. Is a chancel search appropriate?


Your property lawyer is likely to recommend that a chancel search be ordered, irrespective of the parish in which the home being purchased is found. In older areas of Swanley, chancel repair may be apportioned on the owners of a home where Parochial Church Councils (PCCs) may have not done so in the past. Even if liability is unlikely, indemnity insurance is a sensible precaution.


Are your property lawyers set up to move quickly on the conveyancing for auction properties in Swanley?


We deal with auctions throughout the UK and regularly act for bidders at auction. It is prudent for buyers at auction to appoint a SRA regulated lawyer as soon as they can to allow adequate time for a title report of the legal pack before the auction day.

Thereafter, following the actual auction a prepared lawyer has to be geared up to get through the conveyancing process within 28 days, a requirement of standard auction conditions.


I am buying a 1930s building in the middle of a conservation area in Swanley. How do we uncover information relating to the state of repair of the area?


Local Swanley conservation areas are created by Dartford who govern conservation area concerns from building materials used to the policing of street clutter. English Heritage administer a detailed list in relation to the condition of conservation areas along with the exposure to getting worse.


My partner and I are planning to buy in Swanley, and need to know if there are any conservation areas.


Areas deemed to be of special architectural or historic interest, such as historic transport links, will be designated as areas of conservation. Your solicitor will be able to offer more information and address the consequences of purchasing property in a conservation area.


Which specific searches does the Swanley lawyer order when instructed on a Swanley building?


The customary conveyancing procedure will be to get the following Local Authority, Drainage Search, Environment Search and Coal Mining (Con29M) and occasionally area-specific searches e.g. a Subsidence report.


How early should I instruct a conveyancer in Swanley?


If you choose a conveyancing firm with 'no move, no fee' protection, the sooner the better. Early instruction of a solicitor to act on your Swanley sale or purchase can reduce the likelihood of your transaction stalling.


If Swanley land is found to be contaminated, can we have the topsoil remedied?


Remediation of contaminated land in Swanley can often be possible, but it can be costly, and local authorities will usually be responsible. A Swanley specialist such as Freeland Horticulture, Hextable Gardens Flat/College Rd, Swanley, BR8 7LT can provide more details.
