Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Bickley

I am in the market for a reasonably priced property lawyer. Do I opt for a nationwide conveyancer as opposed to a local Bickley conveyancing solicitor?

Generally conveyancing solicitors in your location will enjoy strong alliances with your local authority, which can help with your Bickley conveyancing searches that your conveyancer will inevitably need. It can only be a plus if they enjoy good relationships with the Local Land Registry Office your area Bickley, other conveyancers in the location and Bickley Estate Agents.

In the event thatI was to buy a straightforward propertyin Bickley mortgage fee and dispense with a survey and no local authority searches how much would I expect to have to pay for conveyancing in Bickley?

Any savings you would achieve would be limited to the Bickley conveyancing searches. The lawyer is required to do the vast majority of work - money laundering, liaising with the sellers property lawyer, SDLT return, register the title etc. You might save a bit for them not having to register a mortgage however it won't be a lot.

I am assisting my aunt sell her house in Bickley. Will the conveyancer arrange an EPC or it is for the seller to see to?

Following the demise of HIPs, energy assessments remained a compulsory element of selling a house. An energy performance certificate must be commissioned before the property is marketed. This is not a task that conveyancers ordinarily arrange. If you are instructing a Bickley conveyancing practitioner they may be willing to arrange EPC’s given their contacts with long established local energy assessors

I am selling my flat. I had a double glazing fitted in April 2006, but did not receive a FENSA certificate or Building Regulation Certificate. My purchaser’s mortgage company, Virgin Money are being problematic. The Bickley solicitor who is on the Virgin Money conveyancing panel is happy to accept ‘lack of building regulation’ insurance but Virgin Money are insisting on a building regulation certificate. Why do Virgin Money have a conveyancing panel if they don't accept advice from them?

It is probably the case that Virgin Money have referred the matter to their valuer. The reason why Virgin Money 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.

About to purchase house in Bickley. I have received an online quote from a licenced conveyancer, which states: "There will be no charge for dealing with the Lender if you are obtaining a mortgage". I take this to mean that there will be no additional fee if the solicitor is on the Leeds Building Society conveyancing panel. I wanted to make sure it means there will be no additional fees for dealing with the mortgage.

They are simply saying that the cost for acting for the lender is included in the fee being quoted. It is worth you checking that the Bickley conveyancing practitioner is on the Leeds Building Society conveyancing panel.

I require quick conveyancing in Bickley as I have an ultimatum to sign on the dotted line inside one month. A home loan is not required. Is it possible to escape the need for conveyancing searches to save fees and time?

If.Given you are are a cash buyer you have the choice not to do searches although no law firm would advise that you don't. With plenty of history conveyancing in Bickley the following are instances of issues that can appear and therefore impact future mortgageability: Refused Planning Applications, Outstanding Charges, Overdue Grants, Road Schemes,...

Due to the advice of my in-laws I had a survey completed on a house in Bickley before instructing lawyers. I have been advised that there is a flying freehold aspect to the property. Our surveyor advised that some banks tend not grant a loan on a flying freehold home.

It depends who your proposed lender is. Lloyds has different instructions for example to Nationwide. If you call us we can investigate further with the appropriate mortgage company. If you lender is happy to lend one our lawyers can assist as they are accustomed to dealing with flying freeholds in Bickley. Conveyancing will be smoother if you use a solicitor in Bickley especially if they are accustomed to such properties in Bickley.

We're first time buyers - had an offer accepted, but the selling agent informed us that the owners will only move forward if we use the agent's chosen solicitors as they want an ‘expedited deal’. We would rather use a local solicitor accustomed to conveyancing in Bickley

It is improbable the vendors are driving this. Should the owner want ‘a quick sale', alienating a motivated purchaser is going to damage their objectives. Avoid the agents and go straight to the sellers and explain that (a)you are genuine buyers (b)you are excited to move forward, with mortgage lined up © you are chain free (d) you intend to proceed fast (e)but you are going to use your own,trusted Bickley conveyancing firm - as opposed tothe ones that will provide the estate agent a commission or meet his conveyancing thresholds set by corporate headquarters.
