As a FTB what is the most important advice you can impart regarding purchase conveyancing in Clayhall?

You may not hear this from too many lawyers but conveyancing in Clayhall and elsewhere in Essex is an adversarial experience. In other words, when it comes to conveyancing there is plenty of opportunity for conflict between you and others involved in the legal transfer of property. For instance, the vendor, estate agent and sometimes a bank. Choosing a lawyer for your conveyancing in Clayhall an important selection as your conveyancer is your adviser, and is the SOLE party in the legal process whose responsibility is to act in your best interests and to protect you.

We are witnessing a distinct ongoing adversarial element to conveyancing- someone has to be at fault for the process taking so long. You your first instinct should be to trust your solicitor above the other parties when it comes to the legal transfer of property.

I'm in the throws of viewing flats in Clayhall and I am now considering a potential offer. Is it too early to have a solicitor in place? I will be getting a mortgage with Leeds Building Society.

It would be advisable to commence your search sooner rather than later. After you have chosen your lawyer and once your offer is accepted you can instruct them to work for you and pass their details on to the EA. As you are taking out a mortgage with Leeds Building Society, ask your prospective lawyers if they are on the Leeds Building Society conveyancing panel otherwise they can't do the mortgage legal work.

Intending to buy a apartment in Clayhall. I have received an online quote from a licenced conveyancer, which states: "There will be no charge for dealing with the Lender if you are obtaining a mortgage". I take this to mean that there will be no additional fee if the solicitor is on the Bank of Ireland conveyancing panel. I wanted to make sure it means there will be no additional fees for dealing with the mortgage.

They are simply saying that the cost for acting for the lender is included in the fee being quoted. It is worth you checking that the Clayhall solicitor is on the Bank of Ireland conveyancing panel.

I have finally had an offer on a flat in Clayhall accepted, but there is a chain. The owners have put an offer on somewhere, however it’s not yet tied up, and have viewings of other properties in the pipeline. I have chosen a bricks and mortar conveyancing solicitor in Clayhall. What do I do now? At what point should I apply for the mortgage with Skipton?

It is usual to have anxieties where there is a chain as you are unlikely to want to incur costs too early (mortgage application is in the region of one thousand pounds, then valuation, Clayhall conveyancing search charges, etc). The first thing to do is ensure that your conveyancer is on the Skipton approved list. Regarding the next phase this very much dictated by the specifics of your transaction, motivation for the property and on the state of the market. In a buoyant market the majority of home buyers will apply for a home loan with Skipton and pay for the valuation and only if it comes back ok would they request their lawyer to proceed with searches.

My wife and I purchased a terraced Georgian property in Clayhall. Conveyancing practitioner represented me and Skipton Building Society. I happened to do a free search for it on the Land Registry database and I saw two entries: the first freehold, another for leasehold with the matching property. I thought I was buying a freehold how can I check?

You need to read the Freehold register you have again and check the Charges Register for mention of a lease. The best way to be sure that you are also the registered owner of the leasehold and freehold title as well is to check (£3). It is not completely unheard of in Clayhall and other locations in the country and poses no real issues for owners other than when they mortgage they have to account for both freehold and leasehold interests when dealing with purchasers. You can also check the position with your conveyancing practitioner who conducted the work.

How does conveyancing in Clayhall differ for newly converted properties?

Most buyers of new build or newly converted property in Clayhall come to us having been asked by the developer to sign contracts and commit to the purchase even before the house is constructed. This is because developers in Clayhall usually buy 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 conveyancers 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 used to new build conveyancing in Clayhall or who has acted in the same development.
