Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Dawlish

The vendors of the house we are looking to purchase have instructed a conveyancing firm in Dawlish who has suggested a exclusivity agreement with a deposit two thousand pounds. Is it wise to enter into such agreements?

Exclusivity agreements are agreements binding a property vendor and purchaser granting the buyer a ‘clear field’ to purchase the premises for a certain period of time. For all intents and purposes, a lock out is a document specifying that you should have a contract at a later time which is the contract for the actual sale. It tends to be utilised for buyer confidence though in many situations, the vendor may enjoy an upside from such agreements as well. There are many pros and cons to using an agreement but you need to check with your solicitor but beware that it may end up costing you extra in conveyancing fees. For this these contracts are unusual when it comes to conveyancing in Dawlish.

We are expecting a mortgage offer soon. The lender mentioned the loan came with free conveyancing. Is the implication that I have to appoint their panel solicitor as I would prefer to instruct a specialised conveyancing solicitor in Dawlish?

You should check but the chances are that allocate you one of their panel solicitors if you accept the "fee-free" incentive. Call the lender to ask if they make available a cash alternative. It is not unheard for a lender to give a £250 cashback as a further option in which case you could put that amount towards the cost for your conveyancing solicitor near Dawlish.

I have been told that property searches are the main reason for delay in Dawlish house deals. Is that correct?

The Council of Property Search Organisations (CoPSO) released findings of a review by MoveWithUs that conveyancing searches do not feature amongst the common causes of delays during the legal transfer of property. Searches are not likely to feature in any delay in conveyancing in Dawlish.

The estate agent has sent us the confirmation of our purchase of a new build flat in Dawlish. 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.

Set out below are examples of a selection of leasehold new build questions that you can expect your new-build leasehold conveyancing in Dawlish

    The Lease must contain a provision on behalf of the Vendor to pay the service charges in respect of unoccupied units in order to ensure that all services can be provided. Please confirm the Lease plans are surveyor prepared. Please supply evidence that the form of Lease proposed has been approved by the Land Registry. Will the freehold then be transferred for a nominal consideration (not exceeding £100) to the Management Company? The Landlord must covenant to assume the management if the Management Company goes into liquidation or otherwise defaults in running the management scheme.

I have been on the look out for a leasehold apartment up to £305k and identified one near me in Dawlish I like with open areas and railway links in the vicinity, the downside is that it only has 61 years on the lease. I can't really find anything else in Dawlish suitable, so just wondered if I would be making a mistake acquiring a lease with such few years left?

Should you need a mortgage the remaining unexpired lease term will be a potential deal breaker. Reduce the price by the amount the lease extension will cost if it has not already been discounted. If the current owner has owned the property for at least twenty four months you can ask them to commence the lease extension formalities and pass it to you. An additional ninety years can be extended on to the current lease with a zero ground rent applied. You should consult your conveyancing solicitor concerning this.

I have been pointed in your direction by a number of estate agents in Dawlish to locate a conveyancer on your site. What’s the financial inducement for Estate Agents to recommend your services over another?

We don’t make any financial incentive for sending work in our direction. We found it would be just too difficult a fee as a client could think, ‘Why is the agent getting a kickback? Why aren’t I receiving any benefit too?’ We would prefer to grow our business on genuine recommendations.
