Q.

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

A.

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.

Q.

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?

A.

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.

Q.

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

A.

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.

Q.

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

A.

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.

Q.

What causes the conveyancing work to take weeks to complete?

A.

The legal work undertaken to transfer a home in Swanley can suffer setbacks for a variety of reasons. Sometimes, the delays are unhappily out of the conveyancing solicitor's control. We do our best to minimise their consequences wherever possible to do so. There are numerous reasons for delay, such as the length of time it takes for the managing agent or landlord to respond to queries.

Q.

How early should I instruct a conveyancer in Swanley?

A.

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.

Q.

Having heard about the serious flooding in the UK in April 2012 we are wondering whether environmental searches won't be sufficient?

A.

Environmental searches conducted by a Swanley conveyancing solicitor will include a far more specialist search (Landmark) if the risk is deemed significant.

If you are still concerned you might make enquiries with a neighbour of the property or nearby Kent flood damage builder, such as: Crossfield, Unit 11 Park Rd Ind Est/Park Rd, Swanley, BR8 8AH Tel: 01322 662277.

Q.

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

A.

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.
