Q.

In about five weeks we are likely to be moving out of our terraced home just outside Welling into a bigger property in Bexleyheath what is the best point to instruct a removal company?

A.

We tend to suggest that you put off organising removals until after the contracts have exchanged as in all probability an absolute date will not have been firmed up. For more information try Crump & Son's Removals, 243 Gipsy Road, Welling, DA16 1HZ Call: 020 83034847.

Q.

What do I need to be aware of when buying a flat within the boundary of a Bexley council designated conservation area ?

A.

Part of the property legal includes carrying out searches of the Bexley authority to determine conservation area status and the existence of permission for changes. Should no local authority consents be in evidence the solicitor will inform you of the alternatives which can include getting an indemnity insurance policy or seeking retrospective permission from Bexley council.

Q.

Are 'conveyancing searches' that necessary?

A.

These searches are standard queries ordered by the buyer's conveyancing lawyer with local and national authorities. Whether buying in Welling or elsewhere, you should be aware that, conveyancing searches refer specifically to facets affecting the legal title.

Q.

Would it be sensible to take care of legal conveyancing process myself.

A.

Hypothetically there is absolutely no argument why a home mover cant go down that route and do the legal work unaided. In reality however, a property lawyer is in charge of a huge array of exercises ranging from raising additional enquiries or dealing with requisition on os1 most of which need training.
