Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Corsham

We are buying a newly built apartment in Corsham and my solicitor is advising me that she has to the lender to reveal incentives from the seller. I am on a tight deadline to sign contracts and I would rather not delay matters. Is my lawyer right?

You should not exchange unless you have been advised to do so by your conveyancer. A precondition to being on a bank panel is to comply with the UK Finance Lenders’ Handbook specifications. The CML Conveyancing Handbook requires that your lawyer have the appropriate Disclosure of Incentive form completed by the developer and accepted by your lender.

My wife and I have a 4 bedroom Edwardian property in Corsham. Conveyancing solicitor acted for me and Virgin Money. I happened to do a free search for it on the Land Registry database and there are two entries: one for freehold, another for leasehold under the matching property. I thought I was buying a freehold how can I check?

You should review the Freehold register you have again and check the Charges Register as there may be mention of a lease. The best way to be sure that you are also the registered proprietor of the leasehold and freehold title as well is to check (£3). It is not completely unheard of in Corsham and other areas of the country and poses no real issues for owners other than when they sell they have to account for both freehold and leasehold interests when dealing with mortgage companies. You can also enquire as to the situation with the conveyancing solicitor who carried out the work.

How does conveyancing in Corsham differ for new build properties?

Most buyers of new build premises in Corsham approach us having been asked by the developer to sign contracts and commit to the purchase even before the property is completed. This is because builders in Corsham 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 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 accustomed to new build conveyancing in Corsham or who has acted in the same development.

I have been recommended by two or three local estate agents in Corsham to locate a solicitor using your seach tool. Is there a financial incentive for Estate Agents to promote your lawyers ahead of a competitor’s?

We don’t make any financial incentive for pointing buyers and sellers our way. We thought it would be too underhand to pay a commission because members of the public would think, ‘Why is the agent getting a kickback? Why am I not receiving any benefit too?’ We would prefer to grow our business on genuine recommendations.

I need to find a conveyancing solicitor for freehold conveyancing in Corsham. I have stumble across a web site which appears to be the perfect offering If there is a chance to get all the legals completed via email that would be ideal. Do I need to be wary? What should out be looking out for?

As usual with these online conveyancers you need to read ALL the small print - did you notice the extra charge for dealing with the mortgage?

What can I do to determine who owns a property in Corsham?

On the basis that the property is registered with HM Land Registry, and you have sufficient details of the location of the premises, you should be able to see results from the HM Land Registry of the registered proprietor for a a minimal charge.
