It has come to my attention via my IFA that my Aldwych solicitor is not on the lender Solicitor panel. What can I do to be sure if this is correct?
The first thing you need to do is to contact your Aldwych conveyancer. It is reasonable to expect your lawyer to advise you of the situation. Where they are not on the panel they could put your in touch with solicitors on the approved list of lawyers for your mortgage company.
I am purchasing a house without a mortgage in Aldwych. I have lived for the last Seventeen years in Aldwych. Conveyancing searches are a lot of money. As I know the road and vicinity very well should I not bother getting the solicitor to do all the conveyancing searches?
Provided that you do not need a home loan, then all but one or two of the Aldwych conveyancing searches are optional. Your lawyer will try and steer you, no-doubt strongly, that you should have searches carried out, but she has a professional duty to take that path of advice. Do consider; if you are going to dispose of the house in the future, it may be of relevance to your prospective buyer what the searches determine. There are plenty of instances where houses with functional issues can still show up unfavourable search results. A competent conveyancing solicitor in Aldwych should be able to give you some practical guidance in this regard.
What will a local search reveal regarding the property my wife and I buying in Aldwych?
Aldwych conveyancing often commences with the ordering local authority searches directly from your local Authority or via a personal search company for example Xpress Legal The local search plays a central part in most Aldwych conveyancing purchase; that is if you wish to avoid any nasty surprises after you move into your new home. The search will provide information on, amongst other things, details on planning applications relevant to the property (whether granted or refused), building control history, any enforcement action, restrictions on permitted development, nearby road schemes, contaminated land and radon gas; in all a total of 13 subject headings.
How does conveyancing in Aldwych differ for newly converted properties?
Most buyers of new build or newly converted property in Aldwych come to us having been asked by the seller to sign contracts and commit to the purchase even before the house is constructed. This is because builders in Aldwych tend to buy the land, 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 conveyancing solicitors 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 Aldwych or who has acted in the same development.
