Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Kingsdown

I plan on acquiring a maisonette in Kingsdown. My property lawyer is not listed on the bank conveyancing panel. Is it possible for me to use my Kingsdown conveyancing solicitor notwithstanding that they are not on the bank list of approved lawyers?

You will need to have a property lawyer to complete the formalities when you need a mortgage to buy your home. They will conduct all the relevant legal checks on the property, ensuring that you’re registered as proprietor and ensure that all the required mortgage documentation is in place. You may instruct a Kingsdown lawyer of your choosing. Nevertheless, if the conveyancer selected is not a member of the lender conveyancing panel additional costs will be incurred as separate legal representation will be need by the lender. Conveyancing panel applications can be submitted, so if your conveyancer has not previously applied for membership they should take the opportunity to apply.

I am planning to move home in August. Should my conveyancing solicitor update the removal company on the day of completion. On a separate note, can you suggest a removal company in Kingsdown. Conveyancing lawyer was organised prior to coming across this site.

On the day of completion you will need to pick up the keys from your property agent but this can only occur after the previous owners solicitors inform the agent that they acknowledge receipt of the completion payment and the keys can be collected. After that you should advise the removal men that they can start moving you in. As a matter of policy we do not recommend a specific removal company but can assist you in finding a conveyancing in Kingsdown or a solicitor with expertise in conveyancing in Kingsdown.

I'm spending time viewing houses in Kingsdown and I am about to put in an offer. Is it wise to have a solicitor on ‘stand by’? I am planning to take a mortgage with Aldermore.

You should start requesting conveyancing quotes from solicitors ASAP. After you have chosen your lawyer and once your offer is accepted you can instruct them to work for you and pass their contact information on to the estate agent. Given that you are getting a mortgage with Aldermore, ask your prospective lawyers if they are on the Aldermore conveyancing panel otherwise they can't do the mortgage legal work.

I am currently in the process of buying my council flat in Kingsdown. I have a mortgage agreed with TSB. Conveyancing is new to me. Can I proceed without a solicitor easily? I think we can but we keep being told I should have one. Any advice?

It is not advisable to proceed with a house purchase without a solicitor. The council's solicitor are not acting for you. You need a solicitor for a number reasons. One of which is to verify what plans the Council have for repairs and refurbishment for the next five years. Many leaseholders have been stung for contributions of thousands of pounds. In any event, if you are getting a mortgage with TSB, you will need to appoint a solicitor on the TSB conveyancing panel.

Are there restrictive covenants that are commonly identified during conveyancing in Kingsdown?

Covenants that are restrictive in nature can be picked up when reviewing land registry title as part of the legal transfer of property in Kingsdown. An 1874 stipulation that was seen was ‘The houses to be erected on the estate are each to be of a uniform elevation in accordance with the drawings to be prepared or approved by the vendor’s surveyor…’

Over the last few months I have been searching for a ground for flat up to £235,500 and found one near me in Kingsdown I like with a park and station nearby, the downside is that it only has 52 years on the lease. There is not much else in Kingsdown in this price bracket, so just wondered if I would be making a mistake purchasing a short lease?

Should you require a home loan the shortness of the lease will likely be problematic. Discount the price by the expected lease extension will cost if it has not already been discounted. If the existing proprietor has owned the premises for a minimum of twenty four months you can ask them to commence the lease extension formalities and pass it to you. You can add 90 years to the current lease term with a zero ground rent applied. You should speak to your conveyancing solicitor regarding this.

Given that I am about to part with £400,000 on a property in Kingsdown I would like to talk to a lawyer regarding theconveyancing in advance of instructing the firm. Is this something that you can arrange?

Absolutely - it is our preference to talk to you we do not take any clients on without you first talking to the lawyer due to be doing your conveyancing in Kingsdown.There is no ‘factory style conveyancing’ - every client is unique person, not a case number. The solicitors that we put you in touch with believe that the figure you are calculated and presented to you for residential conveyancing in Kingsdown should be the figure that you end up paying.
