In the event thatI was to acquire a freehold housein Goodmayes for cash and dispense with a survey and no local authority searches how much should I expect to to save on my conveyancing in Goodmayes?
The only reduction in fees you would achieve is the costs for searches. The conveyancer is obliged to do the vast majority of work - money laundering, liaising with the sellers lawyer, stamp duty return, register the title etc. You might save a bit for them not needing to register a mortgage but it will not be a lot.
Having sold my house in Goodmayes last October yet the purchaser is texting daily to say her lawyer is waiting to hear from mine. What should my lawyer have done following completion?
Following your sale your solicitor is duty bound to send the transfer documentation and all supplemental paperwork to the buyer’s conveyancer. Where relevant, your solicitor must also evidence that the mortgage has been paid off to the buyers lawyers. There are no post completion requirements unique to conveyancing in Goodmayes.
2 months have elapsed following my purchase conveyancing in Goodmayes concluded. I have checked the Land Registry website which shows that I paid £175,000 when infact I paid £215,000. 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 premises 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.
Yesterday I discovered that there is a flying freehold issue on a property I have offered on a fortnight ago in what was supposed to be a straight forward, chain free conveyancing. Goodmayes is where the house is located. What do you suggest?
Flying freeholds in Goodmayes are unusual but are more likely to exist in relation to terraced houses. Even though you don't necessarily need a conveyancing solicitor in Goodmayes you must be sure that your lawyer goes through the deeds diligently. Your bank may require your conveyancing solicitor to take out an indemnity policy. Some of the more diligent conveyancing solicitors in Goodmayes may ascertain that this is not enough and that the deeds be re-written to give you the most up to date legal protection. If so, the next door neighbour also had to sign up to the revised deeds.It is possible that your lender will not accept the situation so the sooner you find out the better. You should also check with your insurance broker as to whether they will insure a flying freehold property.

Is there a distinction between surveying and conveyancing in Goodmayes?
Conveyancing - in Goodmayes or elsewhere - is the legal term given to transferring legal title of property from one person to another. It therefore includes the investigation of the title. Whether buying or selling, you should be aware of anything affecting the property such as proposals by government departments, illegal buildings, or outstanding rates. The conveyancer should conduct the appropriate searches and inquiries on the property. Surveying relates to the structure of a property itself. A surveyor will look at a house, flat and any outbuildings you are intending to buy and will help you discover the condition of the building and, if there are problems, give you a powerful reason for reducing the price down or asking the seller to remedy the defects prior to you complete your move.
