Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Frenchay Common

IfI were to buy a freehold propertyin Frenchay Common for cash and dispense with a survey and no local authority searches how much should I expect to to save on my conveyancing in Frenchay Common?

The only reduction in fees you would make on is the costs for searches. Your lawyer is obliged to do the vast majority of work - money laundering, communicating with your vendors conveyancing practitioner, SDLT submission, register the property etc. You might save a bit for them not having to register a mortgage but it will not be significant.

I have been told that property searches are the number one cause of hinderance in Frenchay Common conveyancing transactions. Is that correct?

The Council of Property Search Organisations (CoPSO) has noted the conclusions of a review by MoveWithUs that conveyancing searches do not figure within the common causes of hindrances in the conveyancing process. Searches are not likely to be the root cause of holding up conveyancing in Frenchay Common.

Are there restrictive covenants that are commonly picked up as part of conveyancing in Frenchay Common?

Restrictive covenants can be picked up when reviewing land registry title as part of the legal transfer of property in Frenchay Common. An 1874 stipulation that was seen was ‘The houses to be erected on the estate are each to be of a uniform elevation in accordance with the drawings to be prepared or approved by the vendor’s surveyor…’

How does conveyancing in Frenchay Common differ for new build properties?

Most buyers of new build property in Frenchay Common approach us having been asked by the developer to exchange contracts and commit to the purchase even before the house is built. This is because house builders in Frenchay Common usually acquire 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 accustomed to new build conveyancing in Frenchay Common or who has acted in the same development.

My husband and I are 14 days into a leasehold purchase having been recommend to a firm by the local agent to do our conveyancing in Frenchay Common. I am not happy. Could you help me find new lawyers?

A solicitor would have to be very poor to suggest changing them. Has your mortgage offer been generated? If so you need to make them aware of the replacement lawyer and ensure the loan are issued to the new lawyers. Your conveyancer should be on the lenders panel to avoid escalating fees and delays. That should be your first question of the new solicitors. Our search tool can help you find a lender approved lawyer for your home move in Frenchay Common
