We are buying a house and require a conveyancing solicitor in Alsager who is on the Kent Reliance approved panel. Can you recommend a local solicitor?
Our service is limited to being a directory service for firms who wish to be listed as being on the approved conveyancing panel for Kent Reliance . We don't recommend any particular firms conducting conveyancing in Alsager.
This question may be naive but I am new to the house moving as a first time purchaser of a ground floor flat in Alsager. Do I collect the keys to the property on completion from my conveyancer? If this is the case, I will appoint a High Street conveyancing solicitor in Alsager?
On the day of completion you do not need to go to the conveyancers office in Alsager. Conveyancing lawyers for you will electronically transfer the completion advance to the seller's lawyers, and shortly after the monies have arrived, you should be called to collect the keys from the selling Agents and move into your new home. This tends to happen between 1 and 3pm.
We are purchasing a detached bungalow in Alsager. We would like to convert the garage to a playroom at the property.Will legal investigations on the property include investigations to determine if these alterations were previously refused?
Your property lawyer should check the deeds as conveyancing in Alsager can sometimes identify restrictions in the title documents which prohibit certain works or require the consent of a 3rd party. Some additions require local authority planning permissions and approval under the building regulations. Certain areas are designated conservation areas and special planning restrictions apply which frequently prevent or impact extensions. It would be wise to check these things with a surveyor prior to committing yourself to a purchase.
I am due to exchange contracts on my house. I had a double glazing fitted in December 2010, but did not receive a FENSA certificate or Building Regulation Certificate. My buyer's mortgage company, Bank of Ireland are being difficult. The Alsager solicitor who is on the Bank of Ireland conveyancing panel is happy to accept ‘lack of building regulation’ insurance but Bank of Ireland are requiring a building regulation certificate. Why do Bank of Ireland have a conveyancing panel if they don't accept advice from them?
It is probably the case that Bank of Ireland have referred the matter to their valuer. The reason why Bank of Ireland may not want to accept indemnity insurance is because it does not give them any reassurance that the double glazing was correctly and safely installed. The indemnity insurance merely protects against enforcement action which is very unlikely anyway.
How does conveyancing in Alsager differ for newly converted properties?
Most buyers of new build or newly converted property in Alsager approach us having been asked by the housebuilder to exchange contracts and commit to the purchase even before the property is completed. This is because new home sellers in Alsager typically acquire 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 conveyancers 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 used to new build conveyancing in Alsager or who has acted in the same development.
I decided to have a survey done on a property in Alsager before appointing conveyancers. I have been told that there is a flying freehold element to the house. Our surveyor has said that some lenders may refuse to issue a mortgage on such a house.

I am searching for Alsager online conveyancing estimates. Can I be confident that all the Alsager law firms that are listed on your site are on the lender conveyancing panel?
The law firms listed on our site have assured us via an online form that they are on the lender panel and agreed to advise us to take down their listing in the event of removal off of the lender panel. To date we have not been informed by either a mortgage company or a member of the public that the data about a specific Alsager conveyancing solicitor being on the mortgage company conveyancing panel is not accurate.
