I am close to exchanging contracts on the sale of our house in Sittingbourne and the buyers lawyers are claiming that there is a risk of it being built on contaminated land. A high street Sittingbourne lawyer would know that there is no such problem. For the life of me I don't know why the buyers used a factory type conveyancing practice rather than a conveyancing solicitor in Sittingbourne. Having lived in Sittingbourne for many years we know of no issue. Do we get in touch with our local Authority to get clarification need.
It sounds as though you may have a conveyancing solicitor currently acting for you. What do they say? You need to check with 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 life insurance to cover that same sickness)
I have todaybeen informed that Arc property Solicitors have been shut down. They carried out my conveyancing in Sittingbourne for a purchase of a freehold house 12 months ago. How can I be sure that the property is not still registered in the name of the previous owner?
The easiest method to check if the premises is in your name, you can carry out a search of the land registry (£3.00). You can either do this yourself or ask a law firm to do this for you. If you are not registered you can seek help from one of a number of Sittingbourne conveyancing specialists.
Just had an offer accepted on a new build flat in Sittingbourne. Conveyancing is daunting at the best of times but I have never purchased a new build flat before. Can you give me some examples of some of the questions asked in new build legal work.
Here is a sample of a selection of leasehold new build enquiries that you should expect your new-build leasehold conveyancing in Sittingbourne
Will the freehold then be transferred for a nominal consideration (not exceeding £100) to the Management Company? Where service of notices and proceedings can be at the property demised please confirm that this can be amended to include simultaneous services at the Lessees’ solicitors’ offices where the Lessee from time to time is not resident in the UK - such solicitors may be varied by notice in writing to the Landlord from time to time but otherwise will be as previously specified. Investor purchasers must be able to freely grant unsecured tenancies at market rents without requiring any consents. Has the Lease plan been approved by the Land Registry and if not when will they be lodged for this purpose? Please supply a car parking plan.
We are one month into a leasehold purchase having been directed to solicitors by the estate agent to carry out the conveyancing in Sittingbourne. I am not happy. Could you help me find new solicitors?
They would have to be really poor in order to consider changing them. Has the loan offer been issued? In the event that it has you need to inform them of the replacement conveyancer and ensure the offer are re-sent. Your new solicitor ideally needs to be on the mortgage company panel to avoid escalating fees and complications. That should be your starting point.

I have today had an offer accepted on a leasehold flat in Sittingbourne and the mortgage adviser that we are using suggested his conveyancer. She quoted nine hundred pounds plus VAT and 3rd party costs. Does this sound like a good deal?
You should not rely on a single quote. One should seek like-for-like quotes for your conveyancing in Sittingbourne. Then choose one that you are comfortable with and just as important, is on the approved panel of the bank that you are sourcing your mortgage from.
