Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Bolsover

Is there a reason to use a Bolsover conveyancing solicitors firm given that online conveyancers are easier on the wallet?

Its a good idea to scrutinise conveyancing costs in Bolsover and you should seek an affordable estimate but don’t expend your energy sourcing the lowest priced Bolsover conveyancer.

What does my ID and proof of funds have anything to do with my conveyancing in Bolsover? Why is this being asked of me?

Bolsover conveyancing solicitors and indeed property lawyers throughout the UK have an obligation under Anti-terror and anti-money-laundering rules to verify the identity of any client in order to ensure that clients are who they say they are.

Conveyancing clients will need to disclose two forms of certified identification; proof of ID (typically a Passport or Driving Licence) and evidence of address (typically a Utility Bill less than 3 months old).

Proof of source of funds is also required under the money laundering laws as lawyers are obliged to check that the money you are utilising to purchase a property (be it the exchange deposit or the total purchase monies where you are buying without a mortgage) has come from legitimate source (such as employment savings) rather than the product of criminal behaviour.

I note that there are debates on Chancel Insurance on online forums. Do I need this when buying a residence in Bolsover? or I am told that there is a law dating back centuries that could mean that homeowners living in a parish church boundary will be compelled to contribute towards maintenance to the chancel within the church. Is this a legitimate concern for conveyancing in Bolsover?

Unless a previous acquisition of the house completed after 12 October 2013 you may assume that conveyancing practitioners carrying out conveyancing in Bolsover to continue to advocate a chancel search and or insurance against a claim.

How does conveyancing in Bolsover differ for newly converted properties?

Most buyers of new build premises in Bolsover contact us having been asked by the seller to exchange contracts and commit to the purchase even before the premises is completed. This is because new home sellers in Bolsover tend to purchase the land, plan the estate and want to get the plots sold off as they are building the properties. Buyers, therefore, will have to exchange contracts without actually seeing the house they are buying. To reduce the chances of losing the property, buyers should instruct conveyancers as soon as the property is reserved and mortgage applications should be submitted quickly. Due to the fact that it could be several months and even years between exchange of contracts and completion, the mortgage offer may need to be extended. It would be wise to use a lawyer who specialises in new build conveyancing especially if they are used to new build conveyancing in Bolsover or who has acted in the same development.

Due to the guidance of my in-laws I had a survey completed on a house in Bolsover in advance of instructing solicitors. I have been told that there is a flying freehold overhang to the property. Our surveyor has said that some mortgage companies tend not give a mortgage on such a property.

It depends who your proposed lender is. Santander has different requirements from Halifax. Should you wish to telephone us we can investigate further via the appropriate mortgage company. If you lender is happy to lend one our lawyers can help as they are accustomed to dealing with flying freeholds in Bolsover. Conveyancing may be slightly more expensive based on your lender's requirements.

We're novice buyers - agreed a price, but the agent told us that the vendor will only move forward if we instruct the agent's preferred conveyancers as they want a ‘quick sale’. Our preferred option is to instruct a local solicitor with experience of conveyancing in Bolsover

It is highly unlikely the owners are driving this. Should the vendor require ‘a quick sale', alienating a serious purchaser is counter productive. Speak to the owners direct and make sure they understand (a)you are genuine buyers (b)you are excited to move forward, with mortgage lined up © you do not need to sell (d) you intend to proceed fast (e)but you are going to instruct your own,trusted Bolsover conveyancing solicitors - as opposed tothe ones that will earn the negotiator at the agency a referral fee or achieve conveyancing targets demanded by corporate headquarters.
