Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Arkley

The sellers of the house we are hoping to buy have instructed a conveyancing firm in Arkley who has recommended a lock out contract with a payment 10k. Are such agreements sensible?

This form of contract is not the norm in Arkley, conveyancers will often sway clients away from them as they detract from focusing on the main conveyancing focus and if you end up having your deposit forfeited then the solicitor is left exposed. Secondly, there is no assurance that just because the proprietor has signed an exclusivity agreement they will complete the sale with you. They may breach the contract if they receive a large enough offer to do so because an aggrieved claimant with the benefit of a lockoutcontract will still be duty bound to establish consequential losses from the breach and this may not compare to the extra amount that your vendor may secure by breaching the agreement, however morally reprehensible that may be.

What will a local search tell me about the property we're purchasing in Arkley?

Arkley conveyancing often starts with the ordering local authority searches directly from your local Authority or through a personal search organisations for example PSG The local search is essential in every Arkley conveyancing purchase; as long as you don’t want any unpleasant once you have moved into your new home. The search should provide data on, amongst other things, details on planning applications applicable to the premises (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 thirteen topic sections.

My wife and I own a renovated Georgian property in Arkley. Conveyancing lawyer represented me and The Royal Bank of Scotland. I did a free Land Registry search last week and I saw two entries: the first freehold, another for leasehold with the exact same property. I thought I was buying a freehold how can I check?

You need to review the Freehold register you have again and check the Charges Register as there may be mention of a lease. The best way to be sure that you are also the registered proprietor of the leasehold and freehold title as well is to check (£3). It is not completely unheard of in Arkley and other locations in the country and poses no real issues for owners other than when they remortgage they have to account for both freehold and leasehold interests when dealing with mortgage companies. You can also question the position with the conveyancing lawyer who conducted the work.

How does conveyancing in Arkley differ for newly converted properties?

Most buyers of new build property in Arkley come to us having been asked by the developer to sign contracts and commit to the purchase even before the house is constructed. This is because house builders in Arkley typically purchase the site, 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 Arkley or who has acted in the same development.

I opted to have a survey completed on a property in Arkley ahead of appointing conveyancers. I have been told that there is a flying freehold overhang to the house. Our surveyor advised that some banks tend not grant a mortgage on such a home.

It varies from the lender to lender. Santander has different requirements from Halifax. If you call us we can check with the appropriate lender. If you lender is happy to lend one our lawyers can help as they are used to dealing with flying freeholds in Arkley. Conveyancing may be slightly more expensive based on your lender's requirements.

Been reading online that Arkley solicitors are more expensive than Arkley conveyancers in Arkley when it comes to purchasing a property. So is it better if I use a conveyancer or a solicitor where I am purchasing a house in Arkley.

When it comes to conveyancing in Arkley the costs are unlikely to vary dramatically depending on whether the legal expert is a licenced conveyancer or solicitor.
