Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Bolton

I instructed a local solicitor for our conveyancing in Bolton last week. Upon checking the small print I noteI am responsible for charges even if the sale aborts. Should I go with them or instruct an on-line firm who offer no move no charge conveyancing in Bolton?

It is usually a trade off in that if "No Completion No Fee" is advertised then the conveyancing charges will generally be higher to neutralise the cases that do not go ahead. Dont forget that these deals generally do not protect you from disbursements e.g. Bolton conveyancing search expenses.

I am considering applying for a Bank of Ireland mortgage for purchase of a newly converted (under development) in Bolton with 70% LTV. Is it compulsory to choose a solicitor on the conveyancing panel for Bank of Ireland ?

There is nothing to stop you using your solicitor, but Bank of Ireland will insist on their interests being represented by a firm on their conveyancing panel. There is much more potential for delays and confusion with two solicitors involved, and it will undoubtedly be more expensive too.

I have recentlybeen informed that Action Conveyancing have been shut down. They carried out my conveyancing in Bolton for a purchase of a leasehold flat 10 months ago. How can I check that the property is in my name in the name of the former proprietor?

The easiest method to see if the premises is in your name, you can carry out a search of the land registry (£3.00). You can either do this yourself or ask a law firm to do this for you. If you are not registered you can seek help from one of a number of Bolton conveyancing specialists.

I am looking for a flat up to £245,000 and identified one round the corner in Bolton I like with amenity areas and railway links nearby, however it only has 52 years on the lease. I can't really find anything else in Bolton suitable, so just wondered if I would be making a grave error buying a short lease?

Should you require a mortgage the shortness of the lease will be an issue. Reduce the price by the amount the lease extension will cost if it has not already been discounted. If the existing proprietor has owned the property for a minimum of 2 years you can ask them to commence the lease extension formalities and pass it to you. You can add 90 years to the existing lease term with a zero ground rent applied. You should speak to your conveyancing lawyer about this matter.

Do I need to be suspicious about brokers that I am dealing with are suggesting a web based conveyancing firm as opposed to a local Bolton conveyancing company?

As with lots of service providers, often input from relatives can be most helpful. Yet there are many parties with a vested interest in a conveyancing deal; estate agents, mortgage brokers and banks might all suggest lawyers to retain. On occasion the conveyancers might be known to one of the organisations as being good in their field, but sometimes there may be a financial incentive behind the endorsement. You are at liberty to choose your preferred lawyer. You need to be aware that many banks specify a panel list of lawyers you are obliged to use for the lender related work in your home move.

I am using a search engine for the words conveyancing in Bolton it brings up many solicitorslocally. How do I determine which is the suitable solicitor for my move?

The best method of seeking the right conveyancer is via personal referral, so seek the opinion of friends and family who have purchased a property in Bolton or a reputable estate agent or financial adviser. Fees for conveyancing in Bolton vary, so it's a good idea to obtain at least four costs illustrations from different law firms. Be sure to seek confirmation what costs in the quote includes.
