Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Falconwood

I went with a high street firm for my conveyancing in Falconwood yesterday. Looking through the terms of engagement it is apparent thatwe are responsible for charges even if the sale doesn't happen. Should I ditch them and select an on-line firm who offer no completion no charge conveyancing in Falconwood?

Generally there is a compromise along the lines that if "No Sale No Fee" is offered then the conveyancing charges will tend to be be uplifted to neutralise the cases that do not go ahead. Dont forget that such schemes tend not to protect you from outlay e.g. Falconwood conveyancing search expenses.

The owners have very brash vendors who has insisted on a preliminary contract with a down payment of 5k. Are such agreements sensible?

There are a couple of main downsides with signing a lock out contract (also referred to as a no-shop agreement) is that it takes away the focus from moving forward with the conveyancing process, so in the absence of it needing minimal or no negotiation then it could turn out to be unhelpful. It is not strongly advocated by Falconwood conveyancing lawyers for this reason. A further concern is the extent of the remedies available - a jilted buyer should not expect to win an injunction to stop the owner disposing of the property to an alternative purchaser, so the only remedy open via the agreement will be the reimbursement of abortive costs and, in restricted circumstances, the extra payment of damages.

We are planning to acquire a flat and require a conveyancing solicitor in Falconwood who is on the Yorkshire BS approved panel. Could you point me in the right direction as regards a solicitor?

How does conveyancing in Falconwood differ for newly converted properties?

Most buyers of new build residence in Falconwood come to us having been asked by the seller to sign contracts and commit to the purchase even before the residence is completed. This is because builders in Falconwood usually acquire the land, 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 conveyancing solicitors 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 Falconwood or who has acted in the same development.

I am looking for a leasehold apartment up to £235,500 and identified one round the corner in Falconwood I like with a park and station nearby, however it only has 51 remaining years left on the lease. There is not much else in Falconwood suitable, so just wondered if I would be making a mistake purchasing a short lease?

If you require a mortgage that many years will be problematic. Reduce the price by the expected lease extension will cost if not already taken into account. If the existing proprietor has owned the premises for at least 2 years you can ask them to commence the lease extension formalities and then assign it to you. An additional ninety years can be extended on to the current lease term and have £0 ground rent by law. You should speak to your conveyancing solicitor regarding this.

What is the reason for new build conveyancing in Falconwood being more expensive?

Acquiring a brand new home is completely distinct from the normal house buying conveyancing in Falconwood. Firstly housebuilders ordinarily demand contracts to exchange inside a short timeframe, the result being a lot of pressure on your property lawyer to make sure all is in order. In addition new build conveyancing frequently necessitate the checking of adoption of highways, drains, planning considerations, building warranties or architects certificates. Mortgage lender obligations are also more demanding. Taking into account the complex nature of the process for these types of properties, the conveyancing new build fees are higher than normal.
