Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Falmouth

I am in the market for a reasonably priced property lawyer. Should I go for for a national conveyancer or a family Falmouth conveyancing lawyer?

Generally conveyancing lawyers in your location will benefit from good relationships with your local authority, which could help with your Falmouth conveyancing searches that your solicitor will need to carry out.

We're in Falmouth, First timers purchasing with a mortgage (lender is Barclays , and our lawyer is on the Barclays conveyancing panel). How long should the conveyancing process take?

The fact that your lawyer is on the Barclays conveyancing panel is a help. It would almost certainly delay matters if they were not. However, no lawyer should guarantee a timeframe for your conveyancing, due to third parties outside of your control such as delays caused by lenders,conveyancing search providers or by the other side’s solicitors. The time taken is often determined by the number of parties in a chain.

Various web forums that I have visited warn that are the number one cause of stalling in Falmouth conveyancing transactions. Is this right?

The Council of Property Search Organisations (CoPSO) released determinations of research by MoveWithUs that conveyancing searches do not feature within the top 10 causes of delays during the legal transfer of property. Local searches are unlikely to feature in any slowing down conveyancing in Falmouth.

I opted to have a survey done on a property in Falmouth ahead of retaining conveyancers. I have been informed that there is a flying freehold element to the property. The surveyor advised that some mortgage companies will not issue a mortgage on a flying freehold home.

I am looking into buying my first house which is in Falmouth and I am already nervous. I couldn't find anything specific about Falmouth. Conveyancing will be needed in due course but do you know about the Falmouth area? or perhaps some other tips you can share?

Rather than looking online forget looking online you should go and have a look at Falmouth. In the meantime here are some basic statistics that we found

We're first time buyers - agreed a price, but the selling agent advised that the owners will only move forward if we appoint their recommended conveyancers as they need an ‘expedited deal’. We would rather use a family solicitor used to conveyancing in Falmouth

We suspect that the seller is not behind this request. If they require ‘a quick sale', alienating a serious purchaser is counter productive. Speak to the owners direct and make the point that (a)you are motivated purchasers (b)you are excited to move forward, with finances in place © you are chain free (d) you intend to proceed fast (e)but you will continue to use your preferred Falmouth conveyancing solicitors - not the ones that will give the estate agent a commission or meet his conveyancing figures demanded by head office.
