It would be unwise to be swayed by the cheapest Dartmouth Park conveyancing fees. You really do get what you’re paying for when it comes to conveyancing solicitors. A cheap quote may mean that the conveyancing solicitor is handling a lot of jobs at one time and you won’t get the quality of service and the attention that you need.

What is the difference between a licensed conveyancer and conveyancing solicitor in Dartmouth Park

I recently had an offer accepted on a house in Dartmouth Park. My financial adviser suggested a solicitor. I paid an upfront payment of £150. A few days later, the property lawyer contacted me embarrassingly acknowledging that they were not on the Aldermore conveyancing panel. Am I right in thinking that I should be due a refund?
You should be able to recover this from the law firm if they were not on the Aldermore panel. They should have asked at the outset which lender you were obtaining a mortgage with. An important lesson to readers of this site is to check that the lawyers are on the appropriate lender panel.
How does conveyancing in Dartmouth Park differ for new build properties?
Most buyers of new build residence in Dartmouth Park contact us having been asked by the seller to exchange contracts and commit to the purchase even before the house is built. This is because house builders in Dartmouth Park typically 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 used to new build conveyancing in Dartmouth Park or who has acted in the same development.

I am in need of some leasehold conveyancing in Dartmouth Park. Before I get started I require certainty as to the unexpired term of the lease.
Assuming the lease is recorded at the land registry - and almost all are in Dartmouth Park - then the leasehold title will always include the short particulars of the lease, namely the date; the term; and the original parties. From a conveyancing perspective such details then enable any prospective buyer and lender to confirm that any lease they are looking at is the one relevant to that title. For any other purpose, such as confirming how long the term was granted for and calculating what is left, then the register should be sufficient on it's own.
