I am not in a position to travel far from Beaufort. What is the rationale as to why all Beaufort conveyancers aren't automatically on all mortgage company panels?
As unjust as it may seem for mortgage companies to limit who can act for them, from the public’s or conveyancer’s point of view, the the contrary view is that mortgage companies are becoming ever more anxious and regard it vital to protect them from illegal activities. As a result of this concern lenders have consolidated their conveyancing panel to a size that they are happy to control.
We wanted to use a property lawyer in Beaufort for our house move. Our financial adviser has since advised us that our mortgage lenders Bank of Ireland won't deal with them. Why is this not regarded as unfair competition?
A lender may require an approved solicitor act for it. You would be liable to meet the cost of this. Do use our database to choose a solicitor to conduct conveyancing in Beaufort on the Bank of Ireland approved list of solicitors.
Will commercial conveyancing searches disclose planned roadworks that may affect a commercial estate in Beaufort?
Its becoming the norm that commercial conveyancing solicitors in Beaufort will conduct a SiteSolutions Highways report as it reduces the time that conveyancers invest in investigating accurate data on highways that impact buildings and development assets in Beaufort. The search result sets out definitive information on the adoption status of roads, footpaths and verges, as well as the implication of traffic schemes and the rights of way surrounding a commercial development sites in Beaufort.
For every commercial conveyancing transaction in Beaufort it is critical to investigate the adoption status of roads surrounding a site.

How does conveyancing in Beaufort differ for new build properties?
Most buyers of new build premises in Beaufort come to us having been asked by the developer to sign contracts and commit to the purchase even before the premises is finished. This is because new home sellers in Beaufort typically purchase 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 Beaufort or who has acted in the same development.
Yesterday I discovered that there is a flying freehold element on a property I have offered on two weeks back in what should have been a simple, no chain conveyancing. Beaufort is where the house is located. What do you suggest?
Flying freeholds in Beaufort are not the norm but are more likely to exist in relation to terraced houses. Even though you don't necessarily need a conveyancing solicitor in Beaufort you must be sure that your lawyer goes through the deeds diligently. Your mortgage company may require your conveyancing solicitor to take out an indemnity policy. Some of the more diligent conveyancing solicitors in Beaufort may ascertain that this is not enough and that the deeds be re-written to give you the most up to date legal protection. If so, the next door neighbour also had to sign up to the revised deeds.It is possible that your lender will not accept the situation so the sooner you find out the better. You should also check with your insurance broker as to whether they will insure a flying freehold premises.
