Can you help? My Chadwell Heath solicitor is informing me me that she is duty bound toorder Chadwell Heath conveyancing searches asthe firm are on the Santandersolicitor panel. These Chadwell Heath searches cost a lot of money can this be avoided?
Unfortunately both you and your lawyer have little choice here. As you are taking a home loan with a bank your solicitor has to comply with their conditions as set out in their version of the CML Conveyancing Handbook. Your solicitor would have previously signed the Terms and Conditions of your lender’s conveyancing panel appointment which obliges them to follow the CML Handbook conditions . Even if you were a cash buyer you would be ill advised not to carry out Chadwell Heath conveyancing searches.
How does conveyancing in Chadwell Heath differ for new build properties?
Most buyers of new build or newly converted property in Chadwell Heath come to us having been asked by the developer to exchange contracts and commit to the purchase even before the premises is finished. This is because builders in Chadwell Heath tend to purchase the land, plan the estate and want to get the plots sold off as they are building the properties. Buyers, therefore, will have to exchange contracts without actually seeing the house they are buying. To reduce the chances of losing the property, buyers should instruct property lawyers as soon as the property is reserved and mortgage applications should be submitted quickly. Due to the fact that it could be several months and even years between exchange of contracts and completion, the mortgage offer may need to be extended. It would be wise to use a lawyer who specialises in new build conveyancing especially if they are used to new build conveyancing in Chadwell Heath or who has acted in the same development.
Yesterday I discovered that there is a flying freehold element on a house I put an offer in last month in what was supposed to be a straight forward, chain free conveyancing. Chadwell Heath is the location of the property. What do you suggest?
Flying freeholds in Chadwell Heath are unusual but are more likely to exist in relation to terraced houses. Even where you use a solicitor outside Chadwell Heath you would need to get your solicitor to go through the deeds diligently. Your bank may require your conveyancing solicitor to take out an indemnity policy. Some of the more diligent conveyancing solicitors in Chadwell Heath may ascertain that this is not enough and that the deeds be re-written to give you the most up to date legal protection. If so, the next door neighbour also had to sign up to the revised deeds.It is possible that your lender will not accept the situation so the sooner you find out the better. You should also check with your insurance broker as to whether they will insure a flying freehold premises.
My brother has suggested that I use his lawyers for conveyancing in Chadwell Heath. Do I take his advice?
No doubt the best way to select a conveyancing practitioner is to seek guidance from friends or relatives who have actually used the conveyancer that you are contemplating using.

HM Land Registry are legally obliged to reveal price sold data on a register of the title for residential properties countrywide including properties in Chadwell Heath. The register of ownership is an open document, so the Land Registry would be breaking the law if they failed to permit access to the register.
You can ask the Land Registry to withhold the amount paid data yet the response would be a No.
