Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Bridport

We instructed a Bridport based solicitor for our conveyancing in Bridport last week. Reviewing the Ts and Cs I seeI am liable for fees even if our purchase aborts. Would I be best advised to choose an on-line firm who offer no completion no charge conveyancing in Bridport?

It is usually ‘give and take’ in that if "No Sale No Fee" is available then the conveyancing charges will generally be uplifted to neutralise the cases that do not go ahead. Do bear in mind that these arrangements rarely cover expenses e.g. Bridport conveyancing search expenses.

In the event thatI were to buy a simple residential propertyin Bridport for cash and dispense with a survey and no local authority searches how much would I expect to to save on my conveyancing in Bridport?

Any savings you would gain will be limited to the Bridport conveyancing searches. Your lawyer is required to do the vast majority of work - money laundering, correspond with your vendors conveyancing practitioner, SDLT submission, register the property etc. You might save a bit for them not needing to register a charge but it will not be meaningful.

Is there a search tool that I can utilise to find out if the solicitor handling my conveyancing in Bridport is on the bank’sconveyancing panel? I am looking to avoid the situation of having one lawyer for me and one for Platform Home Loans Ltd thus spending £192.00 in further legal invoice.

Please do make the most of the search tool on this web page. Pick the mortgage company and type ‘Bridport’ or your preferred area and you will discover numerous solicitors offices in Bridport or near you.

It has been four months since my purchase conveyancing in Bridport concluded. I have checked the Land Registry website which shows that I paid £200,000 when infact I paid £215,000. Why the discrepancy?

The price paid figure is taken from the application to register the purchase. It is the figure included in the Transfer (the legal deed which transfers the premises from one person to the other) and referred to as the 'consideration' or purchase price. You can report an error in the price paid figure using the LR online form. In most cases errors result from typos so at first glance the figure. Do report it so they can double check and advise.

I am looking for a leasehold apartment up to £245,000 and identified one close by in Bridport I like with a park and railway links nearby, the downside is that it only has 51 years on the lease. There is not much else in Bridport in this price bracket, so just wondered if I would be making a mistake acquiring a lease with such few years left?

Should you need a home loan that many years may be an issue. Reduce the price by the anticipated lease extension will cost if not already taken into account. If the current proprietor has owned the property for a minimum of 2 years you can ask them to start the process of the extension and pass it to you. You can add 90 years to the existing lease and have £0 ground rent by law. You should speak to your conveyancing lawyer about this.

My company is hoping to lease a unit on a shopping parade. Can you recommend solicitors offering fixed fees for commercial conveyancing in Bridport for under £1,200?
