I selected a high street solicitor for my conveyancing in Bishops Waltham recently. Upon checking the Ts and Cs it is apparent thatwe are responsible for charges even where the conveyance does not complete. Should I ditch them and use a web based firm advertising no-sale-no-fee conveyancing in Bishops Waltham?
It is usually ‘give and take’ in that if "No Completion No Fee" is available then the fee levels will generally be more expensive to offset the transactions that fail to complete. Do bear in mind that such schemes tend not to cover expenses e.g. Bishops Waltham conveyancing search expenses.
I am considering applying for a Santander mortgage for purchase of a newly converted (under development) in Bishops Waltham with 65 per cent loan to value. Is it compulsory to choose a solicitor on the conveyancing panel for Santander ?
In theory, you could use a solicitor that is not on the Santander conveyancing panel, but Santander would require one of their panel solicitors to be instructed to act in their interests, and you'd have to pay for this - so most people instruct a panel solicitor. It's also easier, as otherwise you'd have to deal with two solicitors for the same conveyancing matter.
We are intent on selling our home in Bishops Waltham and according to the buyers it appears that there is a possibility that the property was constructed land that was not decontaminated. Any local conveyancer would know this is not the case. For the life of me I don't know why the buyers used an internet conveyancing outfit as opposed to a conveyancing solicitor in Bishops Waltham. Having lived in Bishops Waltham for 5 years we know that this is a non issue. Do we get in touch with our local Authority to get confirmation that the buyers are looking for.
It sounds as though you may have a conveyancing solicitor already. What do they say? You must check with your lawyer before you do anything. It is very possible that once the local authority has been informed of a potential issue it cannot be insured against (a bit like being diagnosed with a serious illness and then taking out health insurance to cover that same ailment)
Yesterday I discovered that there is a flying freehold issue on a property I put an offer in last month in what was supposed to be a simple, no chain conveyancing. Bishops Waltham is the location of the property. What do you suggest?
Flying freeholds in Bishops Waltham 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 Bishops Waltham you must be sure that your lawyer goes through the deeds thoroughly. Your lender may require your conveyancing solicitor to take out an indemnity policy. Some of the more diligent conveyancing solicitors in Bishops Waltham 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.
My uncle has urged me to use his lawyers for conveyancing in Bishops Waltham. Should I use them?
No doubt the best way to choose a conveyancing practitioner is to have recommendations from friends or relatives who have actually experience in using the firm that you are considering.
Been on the hunt for a lawyer for freehold sale conveyancing in Bishops Waltham. We are selling, simple no mortgage to redeem, no rush, no onward purchase. Received an estimate from a conveyancer for nine hundred pounds including VAT which is a tad high considering its so straightforward. Is it possible to find less expensive fees for conveyancing in Bishops Waltham?
Given that it’s a sale only, £500 + VAT should be about the lowest for sale conveyancing in Bishops Waltham.
