We do have plenty of conveyancing firms who can conduct right to buy conveyancing work Do contact us in order to obtain a costs illustration.

We are intent on selling our house in Downe and according to the buyers it appears that there is a possibility that the property was constructed land that was not decontaminated. A local lawyer would know that there is no such problem. For the life of me I don't know why the purchasers used an online conveyancing firm rather than a conveyancing solicitor in Downe. Having lived in Downe for 4 years we know that this is a non issue. Do we get in touch with our local Authority to seek confirmation need.

It sounds as though you may have a conveyancing solicitor currently acting for you. What do they say? You need to enquire of your lawyer before you do anything. It is very possible that once the local authority has been informed of a potential issue it cannot be insured against (a bit like being diagnosed with a serious illness and then taking out health insurance to cover that same illness)

I am purchasing my first flat in Downe with a loan from Skipton Building Society. The developers would not move on the price so I negotiated 6k of additionals instead. The sale representative told me not disclose to my solicitor about this deal as it would affect my mortgage with the lender. Should I keep quiet?.

All lenders require a Disclosure of Incentives Form from the builder of any new build, converted or renovated property, It is available online from the Lenders’ Handbook page on the CML website. CML form is completed and handed to the lender's surveyor when the inspection is done.

Lenders have different policies on incentives. Some accept none at all, cash or physical, while others will accept cash incentives up to 5%.

Hard to understand why the representative of a builder would be suggesting you withold information from a solicitor when all this will be clearly visible on forms the builder has to supply to its solicitor, the buyer's solicitor and the surveyor.

Yesterday I discovered that there is a flying freehold issue on a property I put an offer in a fortnight ago in what was supposed to be a quick, no chain conveyancing. Downe is where the house is located. Can you offer any opinion?

Flying freeholds in Downe are not the norm but are more likely to exist in relation to terraced houses. Even where you use a solicitor outside Downe 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 Downe 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 residence.

I am looking to sell my house. My previous conveyancers has retired. I would be grateful for any recommendation of a conveyancing firm. I happen to live in Downe if that makes things easier.
