In the event thatI was to buy a straightforward housein Kent for cash and dispense with a survey and no conveyancing searches how much would I expect to to save on my conveyancing in Kent?
The only saving you would make on is the costs for searches. The property lawyer still got to do everything else - money laundering, correspond with the sellers property lawyer, stamp duty submission, register the property etc. A marginal saving might be made by not having to register a mortgage however it will not be meaningful.
Completed the sale of my flat in Kent last August but my buyer keeps SMS messaging every few hours to moan that his conveyancer needs to hear from mine. What are the post completion sale legalities following completion?
After completion of your sale your lawyer is committed to deliver the transfer documentation and all supplemental paperwork to the buyer’s solicitors. Where appropriate, your solicitor should also confirm that the home loan has been redeemed to the purchasers solicitors. There is unlikely to be post completion requirements peculiar conveyancing in Kent.
I understand that there are debates on Chancel Insurance on online forums. Am I compelled to have this when purchasing a house in Kent? or Apparently there is historic law that means some house owners residing in a parish church boundary may be liable to contribute towards repairs towards the chancel within the church. Is this appropriate for conveyancing in Kent?
Unless a previous acquisition of the property took place post 12 October 2013 you can expect solicitors handling conveyancing in Kent to continue to suggest a chancel search and or chancel repair liability insurance.
My husband and I are new to the buying process - agreed a price, yet the selling agent told us that the vendor will only go ahead if we instruct their recommended lawyers as they want an ‘expedited deal’. We would rather use a high street solicitor accustomed to conveyancing in Kent
It is unlikely the owners are behind this. If they desire ‘a quick sale', alienating a genuine purchaser is likely to cause more damage than good. Bypass the agents and go straight to the owners and explain that (a)you are motivated purchasers (b)you are excited to move forward, with mortgage lined up © you have nothing to sell (d) you wish to move quickly (e)however you will continue to appoint your preferred Kent conveyancing firm - not the ones that will provide the negotiator at the agency a introducer fee or meet his conveyancing thresholds pre-set by senior management.
