Me and my wife are acquiring our first home. The lawyer has contact usto see if we would like to take out supplemental conveyancing searches. Unfortunately we in the dark as to what's necessary for conveyancing in Chelsfield
The number and type of Chelsfield conveyancing searches should be triggered based primarily on the property, the location, the possibility of any of these risks, your knowledge of the area and risks, your general attitude to risk. What is important is that you adequately comprehend what information the searches could give you. You may then decide if you personally think you need that search. If unsure, ask the property lawyer to offer guidance.
Why do I have to pay up front when it comes to conveyancing in Chelsfield?

If any deposit is as part of the sale price then this will be asked for immediately prior to contracts are exchanged. Any further balance that is due will be payable shortly before completion.
Is it necessary during the course of the conveyancing process to pop into the offices of the solicitor to sign the mortgage deed? If so, I will instruct a firm who offer conveyancing in Chelsfield so that I can attend their offices when needed.

Yesterday I discovered that there is a flying freehold element on a property I put an offer in two weeks back in what was supposed to be a simple, chain free conveyancing. Chelsfield is the location of the property. Is there any advice you can give?
Flying freeholds in Chelsfield are rare but are more likely to exist in relation to terraced houses. Even though you don't necessarily need a conveyancing solicitor in Chelsfield you must be sure that your lawyer goes through the deeds diligently. Your lender may require your conveyancing solicitor to take out an indemnity policy. Some of the more diligent conveyancing solicitors in Chelsfield may decide 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 residence.
