Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Birkenhead

I am in the market for a low cost property lawyer. Do I opt for a national conveyancer rather than a local Birkenhead conveyancing solicitor?

On the whole conveyancing practitioners in your location will benefit from strong alliances with your local authority, which can assist with your Birkenhead conveyancing searches that your solicitor will inevitably need.

I am need of leasehold conveyancing for an apartment in a fairly new development (6 years old) in Birkenhead. 95% of the flats have already been disposed of. Is it strictly necessary to order local searches for my conveyancing in Birkenhead?

Where you are obtaining a mortgage, your lender will insist on some (many) of the searches so you'll have no choice. If not, then Birkenhead conveyancing searches are optional. Your solicitor, will 'advise', perhaps strongly, that you should have the searches done, but he or she is duty bound in this regard. One thing to bear in mind; if you are likely to sell the house one day, it may be of interest to your future buyer what the searches contain. Sometimes houses with no practical issues can still throw up adverse search results. But if you insist that your lawyer to proceed without searches then your lawyer will have to follow your instructions or ask you to appoint a different lawyer for your conveyancing in Birkenhead.

Ordinarily, even if your lawyer is not on the Coventry BS conveyancing panel they can still act for you on your sale. It might be that the lender will not release the original deeds (if applicable and increasingly irrelevant) until after the mortgage is paid off. You should speak to your lawyer directly before you start the process though to ensure that there is no problem as lenders are changing their requirements fairly frequently at the moment.

I have been told that property searches are the number one reason for stalling in Birkenhead conveyancing transactions. Is that correct?

Local searches are unlikely to be the root cause of delay in conveyancing in Birkenhead.
