Reasons to use our Grange Over Sands conveyancing solicitors

  • 1 Using a local Solicitor usually results in a more bespoke service. When using a large conveyancing firm, your conveyancing is dealt with by a team of people who who progress matters by reading from their computer screens.
  • 2 The mark of a good conveyancing solicitor in Grange Over Sands is quality not quantity. The level of service offered by conveyancing "factories" (sometimes 'recommended' by large estate agency chains) often falls short of the level of professionalism you will expect.
  • 3 Chances are that the other side’s lawyers are based in Grange Over Sands - if so both parties are likely to have worked on conveyancing matters in the past
  • 4 This site is the first site offering you the facility to ensure that your conveyancing in Grange Over Sands will be conducted by a law firm on your mortgage lender’s conveyancing panel.
  • 5 Cut price packages from online conveyancers might seem attractive. However, these firms are often based many miles away with little appreciation of the factors that impact property transactions in Grange Over Sands

We have rather assertive sellers who has recommended a exclusivity contract with a down payment 6,000. Are such agreements sensible?

There are a couple of main drawbacks with executing a lock out contract (also termed a no-shop agreement) is that it diverts attention away from moving forward with the conveyancing transaction itself, so in the absence of it needing limited or no negotiation then it could transpire to be unhelpful. It is not particularly popular by Grange Over Sands conveyancing solicitors for this reason. The other main issue is the extent of the remedies available - an aggrieved purchaser should not expect to secure an injunction to stop the owner completing the sale to a third party, so the only remedy available under the agreement will be the recovery of wasted costs and, in restricted circumstances, the additional payment of damages.

I am in need of some leasehold conveyancing in Grange Over Sands. Before I set the wheels in motion I would like to find out the number of years remaining on the lease.

Assuming the lease is registered - and almost all are in Grange Over Sands - then the leasehold title will always include the short particulars of the lease, namely the date; the term; and the original parties. From a conveyancing perspective such details then enable any prospective buyer and lender to confirm that any lease they are looking at is the one relevant to that title. For any other purpose, such as confirming how long the term was granted for and calculating what is left, then the register should be sufficient on it's own.

My fiance and I are buying a three room apartmentin Grange Over Sands with a loan from a mortgage company. We would like to retain our lawyer in Grange Over Sands yet our lender says he's not listed on their "panel". We have to appoint from the our bank panel solicitors or keep our Grange Over Sands solicitor and pay for one of their panel ones to represent our lender. This seems very unfair; is there anything we can do?

Unfortunately,no. The mortgage company mortgage offered to you is subject to conditions, one of which will be that lawyers will on the mortgage company's conveyancing panel. in the past, most banks had large numbers of law firms on their panels, including many conveyancing solicitors in Grange Over Sands : a mortgagee could choose one for themselves, as long as it was on the lender's panel. The lender would then simply instruct the borrower's lawyers to act for the lender, too. You can use your lender's panel lawyers or you could borrow from another lender which does not restrict your choice. A further alternative is for your lawyer to apply to be on the conveyancing panel for your mortgage company.
