What is the first thing I need to know regarding purchase conveyancing in Aigburth?
You may not hear this from too many lawyers but conveyancing in Aigburth and elsewhere in Merseyside is an adversarial experience. In other words, when it comes to conveyancing there is lots of room for conflict between you and other parties involved in the transaction. For instance, the seller, property agent and on occasion a lender. Choosing a lawyer for your conveyancing in Aigburth is a critical decision as your conveyancer is your adviser, and is the ONLY party in the process whose responsibility is to protect your best interests and to keep you safe.
We are witnessing a worrying increase of a "blame" culture- someone has to be blamed for the process taking so long. You must always trust your conveyancer ahead of all other players in the conveyancing process.
A colleague advised me that where I am purchasing in Aigburth I should carry out a Neighbourhood, Planning and Local Amenity Search. Can you explain what the purpose of this search is?
A search of this type is usually included in the estimate for your Aigburth conveyancing searches. It is a large report of about 40 pages, listing and setting out significant information about Aigburth around the property and the people living there. It includes an Aerial Photograph, Planning Applications, Land Use, Mobile Phone Masts, Rights of Way, the Aigburth Housing Market, Council Tax Banding, the demographics of People living in the area, the dominant type of Housing, the Average Property Price, Crime details, Aigburth Education with plans and statistics, Local Amenities and other useful data concerning Aigburth.
The deeds to our property are lost. The conveyancers who dealt with the conveyancing in Aigburth 5 years ago have long since closed. What do I do?
Assuming the title is registered the details of your ownership will be retained by the Land Registry with a Title Number. It is easy to conduct a search at the Land Registry, locate your property and order current copies of the Registered Entries for a small fee. Where the title is Leasehold then the Land Registry will usually hold a file copy of the Registered Lease and again, a copy can be obtained for a small fee.
What makes your site different to other web based conveyancing solicitors when it comes to conveyancing in Aigburth?
At this site secure a conveyancing quote from a Solicitor or Licensed Conveyancer that has a full understanding of the issues for your conveyancing in Aigburth. Unlike many estate agents and many comparison sites we do not charge firms a commission if you instruct them for your property ownership legalities in Aigburth
We're FTB’s - agreed a price, but the selling agent told us that the seller will only go ahead if we appoint their preferred conveyancers as they want a ‘quick sale’. Our preferred option is to instruct a family solicitor with experience of conveyancing in Aigburth
We suspect that the owner is unaware of this requirement. Should the seller desire ‘a quick sale', alienating a serious buyer is not the way to achieve this. Contact the vendors directly and make sure they understand (a)you are motivated purchasers (b)you are excited to move forward, with mortgage lined up © you are chain free (d) you intend to proceed fast (e)however you are going to appoint your preferred Aigburth conveyancing firm - as opposed tothose that will give the negotiator at the agency a referral fee or achieve conveyancing figures demanded by senior management.
Why can't I complete my conveyancing in Aigburth on Good Friday?
Because on completion the money needs to be transferred electronically between the banks of the purchaser and owner’s solicitor and currently this can only occur on a business day. It is not possible to complete on a weekend either.
