Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Blackpool

Souldappointing a Blackpool conveyancing solicitor make the ownership transfer smoother?

Existing third party connections are another important factor to consider when choosing conveyancing solicitors. Blackpool law firms benefit from connections with lenders and Blackpool, local authorities, surveyors and other law firms meaning you will move in shortest possible time. Hosting vast intelligence of the local area is an advantage.

I am soon to exchange on the purchase of a house in Blackpool but as a consequence of wreckage from the recent storms I have managed to agree recompense from the vendor of £3k in the form of a adjustment in the price. This was going to be addressed as part of the conveyancing process yet Yorkshire BS will not agree to this. Should they have been approached?

The conveyancing practitioner that is on the Yorkshire BS approved list is duty bound to disclose to Yorkshire BS of any amendments to the sale price. If you were to refuse your solicitor to disclose the price change to Yorkshire BS then they would have to discontinue acting for you. In addition, Yorkshire BS and you would have to appoint a new property lawyer for your conveyancing in Blackpool.

We note that you have a post code search directory listing law firms on the TSB conveyancing panel. Do firms pay you a commission if I retain them for our conveyancing in Blackpool?

We are a listing service only for law firms wishing to communicate if they are on the TSB conveyancing panel or other lender panels. We do not charge referral fees to any conveyancer that you subsequently appoint for your conveyancing in Blackpool.

I am looking for a flat up to £305k and identified one round the corner in Blackpool I like with a park and station nearby, the downside is that it only has 52 years on the lease. I can't really find anything else in Blackpool for this price, so just wondered if I would be making a grave error buying a lease with such few years left?

If you need a home loan the shortness of the lease may be a potential deal breaker. Reduce the offer by the amount the lease extension will cost if not already taken into account. If the current owner has owned the premises for a minimum of 2 years you may ask them to start the process of the extension and pass it to you. You can add 90 years to the existing lease term and have £0 ground rent by law. You should consult your conveyancing lawyer about this.

I have been recommended by numerous property agents in Blackpool to select a conveyancer on your site. What’s the financial inducement for Estate Agents to promote your services over alternative conveyancing organisations?

We don’t offer any commission for pointing buyers and sellers to this site. We found it would be just too difficult a fee because a client could think, ‘Why is the agent getting a kickback? Why aren’t I receiving any benefit too?’ So we decided to step away from that.

Been looking for a lawyer for freehold sale conveyancing in Blackpool. We are selling, simple no mortgage to redeem, no rush, no onward purchase. Had an estimate from a lawyer for a thousand pounds including VAT which is a tad steep considering its so straightforward. Can I pay less for conveyancing in Blackpool?

Given that it’s a sale only, 475 + VAT is likely to be about the best for a Blackpool solicitor firm.
