As someone clueless as to the Grahame Park conveyancing process what is the number one tip you can give me concerning the house moving process in Grahame Park
Not many law firms or advisers will tell you this but conveyancing in Grahame Park and elsewhere in England and Wales is often a confrontational process. Put another way, when it comes to conveyancing there is an abundance of room for conflict between you and other parties involved in the house moving process. E.g., the vendor, estate agent and even potentially your bank. Selecting a lawyer for your conveyancing in Grahame Park should not be taken lightly as your conveyancer is your adviser, and is the SOLE party in the transaction whose role it is to protect your best interests and to protect you.
Sometimes a third party with a vested interest may try and persuade you that you should follow their advice. As an example, the estate agent may claim to be assisting by claiming that your solicitor is wrong. Or your financial adviser may advise you to do take action that is against your lawyers guidance. You should always trust your lawyer above all other parties when it comes to the legal transfer of property.

The deeds to my house can not be found. The lawyers who dealt with the conveyancing in Grahame Park 4 years ago are no longer around. Will I be able to sell the house?
Assuming the title is registered the details of your ownership will be retained by the Land Registry under a Title Number. It is easy to conduct a search at the Land Registry, find your house and obtain current copies of the Registered Entries for less than a fiver. If the property is Leasehold then the Land Registry will usually retain a file copy of the Registered Lease and again, a copy can be obtained for a small fee.
How does conveyancing in Grahame Park differ for newly converted properties?
Most buyers of new build or newly converted property in Grahame Park approach us having been asked by the builder to sign contracts and commit to the purchase even before the property is completed. This is because builders in Grahame Park 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 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 accustomed to new build conveyancing in Grahame Park or who has acted in the same development.
