I am in the market for a low cost conveyancer. Do I opt for a national conveyancer rather than a high street Edgware conveyancing lawyer?
Generally conveyancing lawyers in your area will have strong connections with your local authority, which can assist with your Edgware conveyancing searches that your conveyancer will inevitably need. It can only assist if they have strong connections with the Land Registry overseeing your area Edgware, other conveyancers in the area and Edgware property agents.
It is a dozen years since I purchased my house in Edgware. Conveyancing lawyers have just been instructed on the sale but I am unable to find my title documents. Will this cause complications?
Don’t worry too much. First there is a possibility that the deeds will be retained by your mortgage company or they could be archived with the solicitor who oversaw your purchase. Secondly the likelihood is that the land will be recorded at the land registry and you will be able to prove you are the registered owner by your conveyancing lawyers acquiring up to date copy of the land registers. Almost all conveyancing in Edgware relates to registered property but in the rare situation where your property is unregistered it is more of a problem but is not insurmountable.
We are close to exchanging contracts on the sale of our home in Edgware and the buyers lawyers are claiming that there is a possibility that the property was constructed land that was not decontaminated. A local lawyer would know this is not the case. It does beg the question why the purchasers instructed an internet conveyancing outfit as opposed to a conveyancing solicitor in Edgware. We have lived in Edgware for many years we know of no issue. Do we contact our local Authority to seek confirmation need.
It would appear that you have a conveyancing firm currently acting for you. Are they able to advise? You need to 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 ailment)
five months have elapsed following my purchase conveyancing in Edgware concluded. I have checked the Land Registry website which shows that I paid £200,000 when infact I paid £180,000. Why the discrepancy?
The price paid figure is taken from the application to register the purchase. It is the figure included in the Transfer (the legal deed which transfers the asset from one person to the other) and referred to as the 'consideration' or purchase price. You can report an error in the price paid figure using the LR online form. In most cases errors result from typos so at first glance the figure. Do report it so they can double check and advise.
My father-in-law has encouraged me to appoint his lawyers for conveyancing in Edgware. Do I take his advice?
Much as we are happy to recommend a Edgware conveyancing lawyer the best way to select a conveyancing practitioner is to seek feedback from friends or relatives who have previously instructed the conveyancer you're are thinking of instructing.
I am Googling for Edgware competitive conveyancing fees. Can I be sure that all the Edgware practices that are identified on your directory are on the mortgage company conveyancing panel?
The law firms on our directory have advised us that they are on the bank panel and agreed to advise us to take down their listing in the event of removal off of the lender panel. To date we have not been informed by either a bank or a member of the public that the data about a specific Edgware conveyancing solicitor being on the lender conveyancing panel is not accurate.
