If you had a top tip for choosing a conveyancing solicitor in Beaworthy what would it be?
It would be unwise to be tempted by the lowest Beaworthy conveyancing costs illustration. You really do get what you’re paying for when it comes to property lawyers.

I have today made my last payment due on my mortgage with Bank of Ireland. I assume I don't need a Beaworthy solicitor on the Bank of Ireland panel to remove the mortgage at the Land Registry. Please confirm.
If you have finished paying off your Bank of Ireland mortgage, they may send you evidence showing that you have paid it off. Alternatively they may notify the Land Registry directly. The Land Registry need to see this evidence before they will remove the Bank of Ireland mortgage from the register. Bank of Ireland, and any evidence they send you, will determine the action you need to take. In cases where no conveyancer is acting for you and you have paid off your mortgage:
- but are not moving to another property
- where Bank of Ireland has sent the Land Registry the discharge electronically, and
- Bank of Ireland has instructed the Land Registry to do so

I've recently bought a leasehold property in Beaworthy. Do I have any liability for service charges for periods before my ownership?
Where the service charge has already been demanded from the previous lessee and they have not paid you would not usually be personally liable for the arrears. However, your landlord may still be able to take action to forfeit the lease. It is an essential part of leasehold conveyancing for your conveyancer to ensure to have an up to date clear service charge receipt before completion of your purchase. If you have a mortgage this is likely to be a requirement of your lender.
If you purchase part way through an accounting year you may be liable for charges not yet demanded even if they relate to a period prior to your purchase. In such circumstances your conveyancer would normally arrange for the seller to set aside some money to cover their part of the period (usually called a service charge retention).

What are the distinct advantages to choosing a local conveyancer in Beaworthy
Plenty of house movers in Beaworthy decide on using a nearby high street property lawyer so that they can visit in the event that they have problems, and to execute paperwork rather than run the risk of relying on the post.
Some would say that there exists a slight edge in opting for a lawyer local to the premises you are purchasing, due to the in-depth knowledge of the area and possible local issues - but this is moot. Most conveyancers conduct their work via the internet and could be any place in the world.
