Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Cheshunt

Having been told to check out your organisation we were about to use a conveyancing solicitor in Cheshunt endorsed on your site but have come across some other costs illustrations via the web look less pricey – how come?

One can find many firms of conveyancing organisations advertising theoretically looks to be extremely cheap conveyancing in Cheshunt. Our recommendation is to think long and hard as to how important this transaction is to you that want to take 'cheap' risks concerning the quality of the conveyancing. Many of them list a low fee to catch your eye but hide supplemental fees in the small print..

I do hope you can assist me. My Cheshunt conveyancer is informing me me that she is duty bound toapply for Cheshunt conveyancing searches asthe firm are on the Lloydssolicitor panel. These Cheshunt searches cost a lot of money can this be avoided?

Unfortunately both you and your lawyer have little choice here. Given that you are taking out a loan with a lender your lawyer has to comply with their conditions as set out in their version of the CML Conveyancing Handbook. Your property lawyer would have previously signed the Terms and Conditions of your bank’s conveyancing panel appointment which obliges them to follow the CML Handbook provisions . Even if you were a cash buyer you would be ill advised not to carry out Cheshunt conveyancing searches.

Why do I have to pay up front when it comes to conveyancing in Cheshunt?

If you are buying a property in Cheshunt your solicitor will request that you place them with funds to cover the search fees. Ordinarily this is asked for to cover the fees of the Local Authority Search. When the deposit is as part of the sale price then this should be required immediately ahead of exchange of contracts. The closing balance that is needed should be sent to your lawyer a few days prior to the day of completion.

My conveyancer has informed me that breach of easement insurance is necessary on my purchase. What is the typical level of cover needed for conveyancing in Cheshunt?

The appropriate level of breach of easement indemnity insurance should be dictated by who your lender. It would differ for example between National Westminster Bank and Chelsea Building Society. Conveyancing solicitors as opposed to members of the public take out such policies.

Does a directory service exist listing Barclays panel solicitors in Cheshunt on the Building Society Association’s Website?

Unfortunately not yet. There is no such facility on the CML or Building Society Association websites. Very few lenders make their panel listings visible over the internet. Where you are in need of a Cheshunt conveyancing practitioner on the Barclays please use our tool.

We previously appointed conveyancing lawyers based in Cheshunt on the Barclays solicitor approved list. They are now charging me a further amount for handling the Barclays mortgage. Is this a supplemental conveyancing fee specified by Barclays?

Unfortunately, so long as it is in their Terms of Engagement or Quote then yes your lawyer may levy a fee for this. This charge is not set by Barclays but by your Cheshunt lawyer. Numerous firms on the Barclays panel will quote ’dealing with mortgage’ fee but plenty of firms incorporate it on their overall fee.

I am intent on selling our property in Cheshunt and according to the buyers it appears that there is a risk of it being built on contaminated land. A high street Cheshunt conveyancer would know this is not the case. For the life of me I don't know why the purchasers are using a web based conveyancing outfit as opposed to a conveyancing solicitor in Cheshunt. We have lived in Cheshunt for six years we know of no issue. Is it a good idea to contact our local Authority to obtain confirmation that the buyers are looking for.

It would appear that you have a conveyancing lawyer currently acting for you. Are they able to advise? You must check with your lawyer before you do anything. It is very possible that once the local authority has been informed of a potential issue it cannot be insured against (a bit like being diagnosed with a serious illness and then taking out health insurance to cover that same sickness)

I'm buying a new build house in Cheshunt with a mortgage from National Westminster Bank. The sellers refused to move on the price so I negotiated five thousand pounds worth of additionals instead. The estate agent told me not disclose to my solicitor about this deal as it may impact my loan with the bank. Do I keep my lawyer in the dark?.

All lenders require a Disclosure of Incentives Form from the developer of any new build, converted or renovated property, It is available online from the Lenders’ Handbook page on the CML website. CML form is completed and handed to the lender's surveyor when the inspection is done.

Lenders have different policies on incentives. Some accept none at all, cash or physical, while others will accept cash incentives up to 5%.

Hard to understand why the representative of a builder would be suggesting you withold information from a solicitor when all this will be clearly visible on forms the builder has to supply to its solicitor, the buyer's solicitor and the surveyor.
