Some advice if I may. My Bridport conveyancer is assuring me that he is legally obliged toorder Bridport conveyancing searches stemming from the fact thatthe firm are on the Nat Westsolicitor panel. Do I not have any options here?

Unfortunately both you and your lawyer have little choice here.

I can see plenty of here concerning conveyancing in Bridport but can you isolate your top tip for selecting the right conveyancer in Bridport

It would be unwise to be tempted by the lowest Bridport conveyancing fees. You really do get what you’re paying for when it comes to conveyancing solicitors. A cheap quote may mean that the conveyancing solicitor is handling a lot of jobs at one time and you won’t get the quality of service and the attention that you need. It is, however, wise to use a conveyancer who has a fixed fee on a no sale, no fee basis. This way, you go into the conveyancing with your eyes wide open.

I am aiming to move house in April. Should my conveyancing solicitor call the removal company on the day of completion. As an aside, can you put forward a removal company in Bridport. Conveyancing firm was found prior to coming across this page.

On the day of completion you can pick up the keys from the estate agent however this should only be done when the previous owners solicitors confirm to the agent that they acknowledge receipt of the completion payment and the keys can be given over. After that you should advise the removal company that they can start moving you in. As a matter of policy we do not recommend a specific removal organisation but can help you choose a conveyancing in Bridport or a solicitor that specialises in conveyancing in Bridport.

After what feels like an age I have had an offer on a flat in Bridport accepted, but there is a chain. The sellers have offered on somewhere, however it’s not yet tied up, and have viewings of other flats booked. I have selected a bricks and mortar conveyancing solicitor in Bridport. What do I do now? At what stage do I apply for the mortgage with Clydesdale?

It is usual to have concerns where there is a chain as you are unlikely to want to incur costs too early (mortgage application is in the region of £1k, then valuation, Bridport conveyancing search charges, etc). The first course of action is to ensure that your conveyancing practitioner is on the Clydesdale approved list. As to the subsequent stages this very much depends on the specifics of your case, attraction to the property and on the state of the market. In a rising market the majority of purchasers would apply for the mortgage with Clydesdale and arrange for the valuation and only if it was satisfactory would they pay their property lawyer to move forward with searches.

How does conveyancing in Bridport differ for newly converted properties?

Most buyers of new build residence in Bridport come to us having been asked by the developer to exchange contracts and commit to the purchase even before the premises is completed. This is because builders in Bridport usually purchase the site, 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 conveyancing solicitors 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 accustomed to new build conveyancing in Bridport or who has acted in the same development.

I am selling my home. My previous lawyers closed down. It would be helpful to have a recommendation of a conveyancing firm. I happen to live in Bridport if that makes things easier.
