Do the conveyancing practitioners that you recommend conduct auction conveyancing in Fulham?
We know of a number of auction practitioners we can put you in touch with those who can conduct auction conveyancing. Fulham is one of the many locations where our lawyers cover.
We are selling our home in Fulham and according to the buyers it appears that there is a risk of it being constructed on contaminated land. A local lawyer would know that there is no such problem. It does beg the question why the purchasers used a nationwide conveyancing outfit as opposed to a conveyancing solicitor in Fulham. We have lived in Fulham for many years we know that this is a non issue. Do we get in touch with our local Authority to obtain clarification that the buyers are looking for.
It would appear that you have a conveyancing solicitor already. Are they able to advise? 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 ailment)
I am looking for a flat up to £305k and found one round the corner in Fulham I like with a park and railway links nearby, however it only has 51 years unexpired on the lease. There is not much else in Fulham in this price bracket, so just wondered if I would be making a grave error buying a short lease?
Should you require a home loan the remaining unexpired lease term will be a potential deal breaker. Reduce the offer by the amount the lease extension will cost if not already taken into account. If the existing proprietor has owned the premises for a minimum of 2 years you can request that they commence the lease extension formalities and then assign it to you. An additional ninety years can be extended on to the existing lease term with a zero ground rent applied. You should speak to your conveyancing lawyer regarding this.

The estate agent has recommended their conveyancer for the conveyancing in Fulham - Surely it’s better to just use them?
It is not always the case and you are free to instruct whichever conveyancer of your choosing for your Fulham home move. A solicitor put forward by a 3rd party adviser may not necessarily be the right conveyancing practitioner, they may recommend their preferred conveyancing firm who are based far away. In this instance you may not have contact with your solicitor and due to the lack of continuity in the transaction, it may be difficult to obtain updates.
