Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Kenley

I instructed a Kenley based solicitor for our conveyancing in Kenley recently. Reviewing the Terms and Conditions it is apparent thatwe are on the hook for costs even where the transaction does not complete. Should I ditch them and select a web based conveyancing brokerage advertising no-sale-no-fee conveyancing in Kenley?

Generally there is a compromise along the lines that if "No Completion No Fee" is offered then the fee levels will tend to be be more expensive to offset the conveyances that do not go ahead. Please beware that such arrangements generally do not protect you from disbursements e.g. Kenley conveyancing search expenses.

I have been told that property searches are the primary reason for obstruction in Kenley house deals. Is that correct?

The Council of Property Search Organisations (CoPSO) released conclusions of research by MoveWithUs that conveyancing searches do not figure amongst the top 10 causes of delays during the legal transfer of property. Searches are not likely to feature in any delay in conveyancing in Kenley.

It has been 4 months since my purchase conveyancing in Kenley concluded. I have checked the Land Registry website which shows that I paid £175,000 when infact I paid £170,000. Why the discrepancy?

The price paid figure is taken from the application to register the purchase. It is the figure included in the Transfer (the legal deed which transfers the residence from one person to the other) and referred to as the 'consideration' or purchase price. You can report an error in the price paid figure using the LR online form. In most cases errors result from typos so at first glance the figure. Do report it so they can double check and advise.

How does conveyancing in Kenley differ for new build properties?

Most buyers of new build residence in Kenley contact us having been asked by the seller to sign contracts and commit to the purchase even before the property is finished. This is because builders in Kenley usually acquire the real estate, 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 accustomed to new build conveyancing in Kenley or who has acted in the same development.
