Should commercial conveyancing searches disclose planned roadworks that could impact a commercial land in Gamlingay?

Its becoming the norm that commercial conveyancing solicitors in Gamlingay will perform a SiteSolutions Highways report as it reduces the time that conveyancers invest in sourcing accurate data on highways that impact buildings and development assets in Gamlingay. The report sets out definitive information on the adoption status of roads, footpaths and verges, as well as the implication of traffic schemes and the rights of way surrounding a commercial development sites in Gamlingay.

For every commercial conveyancing transaction in Gamlingay it is critical to investigate the adoption status of roads surrounding a site. The absence of identifying developments where adoption procedures have not been dealt with adequately may result in delays to Gamlingay commercial conveyancing deals as well as present a risk to future intentions for the site. These searches are not ordered for domestic conveyancing in Gamlingay.

How does conveyancing in Gamlingay differ for newly converted properties?

Most buyers of new build premises in Gamlingay come to us having been asked by the builder to exchange contracts and commit to the purchase even before the property is ready to move into. This is because developers in Gamlingay usually acquire the real estate, 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 property lawyers 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 Gamlingay or who has acted in the same development.

I have been recommended by a few selling agents in Gamlingay to get a quote from a solicitor using your seach tool. What’s the financial advantage for Estate Agents to promote your site over alternative conveyancing organisations?

We don’t offer any financial incentive for directing people our way. We thought it would be too underhand to pay a commission because home movers will think, ‘How come the agent getting a kickback? Why am I not receiving any benefit too?’ So we decided to step away from that.

Me and my wife are purchasing a leasehold property in Gamlingay. Conveyancing quotes are coming in at around £1800. Is that in the right ballpark?

The average fee in 2014 for conveyancing in Gamlingay was £1,395 not including Stamp Duty and Land Registry fees.
