Every auction property will ordinarily have a bespoke auction pack. This should include most,if not all of the paperwork that your solicitor will need.

Having read lots of mortgage guides, I note that they all recommend that you should get your house surveyed prior to buying it. When I asked my local Chelmsley Wood solicitor - who is on the Aldermore conveyancing panel - on this she said they don't do this and I need to contract an independent surveyor. is that correct?

Aldermore will need an independent valuation of the property. Your lawyer will not arrange this. Usually Aldermore will appoint their own surveyor to do this, and you will have to pay for it. Remember that this is a valuation for mortgage purposes and not a survey. You may wish to consider appointing your own Chelmsley Wood surveyor to carry out a survey or prepare a home buyers report on the property. It is up to you to satisfy yourself that the property is structurally sound before you buy it. If the survey or report reveals that building work is needed, you should tell your solicitor. You may wish to renegotiate with the seller.

My offer on a detached house in Chelmsley Wood has been accepted, the owners do however have a dependent purchase. The vendors have put an offer on a flat, however it’s not yet tied up, and have viewings of other flats booked. I have selected a bricks and mortar conveyancing solicitor in Chelmsley Wood. What do I do now? When should I get the mortgage application with UBS going?

It is usual to have apprehensions where there is a chain as you are unlikely to want to incur costs prematurely (mortgage application is approx £1k, then survey, Chelmsley Wood conveyancing search fees, etc). First, you should ensure that your solicitor is on the UBS approved list. Concerning the subsequent phase this very much dictated by the specifics of your case, desire for the property and on the state of the market. In a hot market many home buyers will apply for a home loan with UBS and pay for the valuation and only if it comes back ok would they pay their conveyancing practitioner to proceed with searches.

Just had an offer accepted on a new build apartment in Chelmsley Wood. Conveyancing is necessary evil at the best of times but I have never purchased a new build flat before. Can you give me some examples of some of the questions asked in new build conveyancing.

Here is a sample of a selection of leasehold new build enquiries that you may expect your new-build leasehold conveyancing in Chelmsley Wood

    Please confirm the Lease plans are architect prepared. Please supply a car parking plan. Where service of notices and proceedings can be at the property demised please confirm that this can be amended to include simultaneous services at the Lessees’ solicitors’ offices where the Lessee from time to time is not resident in the UK - such solicitors may be varied by notice in writing to the Landlord from time to time but otherwise will be as previously specified.

We don’t give any referral fee for directing people to this site. We thought it would be too underhand to pay a commission because a client could think, ‘How come the agent getting a kickback? Why aren’t I receiving any benefit too?’ We would prefer to grow our business on genuine recommendations.
