Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Grasmere

What does my ID and proof of funds have anything to do with my conveyancing in Grasmere? What am I being asked for?

It is indeed that case that the requirement set out by your lawyer has nothing to do with conveyancing in Grasmere. Nowadays you can not complete any conveyancing process in the absence submitting proof of your identity. This usually takes the form of a either your passport or driving licence plus a utility bill. Remember if you are providing your driving licence as evidence of identification it needs to be both the paper element as well as the photo card part, one is not sufficient in the absence of the other.

Evidence of the origin of funds is necessary under Money Laundering Regulations. Don’t be offended when when this is requested of you as your conveyancer must retain this information on file. Your Grasmere conveyancing practitioner will need to see evidence of proof of funds before they are able to accept any money from you into their client account and they will also ask further queries concerning the source of funds.

We are expecting a mortgage offer soon. The bank mentioned the mortgage came with free conveyancing. Is the implication that I have to appoint their panel lawyer as I would prefer to appoint a specialised conveyancing solicitor in Grasmere?

You should check but the chances are that give you one of their panel solicitors if you want the "fee-free" incentive. Contact the mortgage company and check if they offer you a cash alternative. It is not unheard for a lender to give a £250 cashback as an alternative in which case that money can go towards your preferred conveyancing solicitor near Grasmere.

We are buying a house and the solicitor has identified Chancel Repair to which the property may be liable given it’s proximity to the area of such a church. He has recommended insurance. Is this really required for conveyancing in Grasmere

Unless a prior purchase of the premises completed post 12 October 2013 you may expect lawyers conducting conveyancing in Grasmere to remain encouraging a chancel search and or chancel repair liability insurance.

I've recently found out that there is a flying freehold element on a property I put an offer in last month in what was supposed to be a quick, chain free conveyancing. Grasmere is the location of the property. Is there any advice you can give?

Flying freeholds in Grasmere are rare but are more likely to exist in relation to terraced houses. Even though you don't necessarily need a conveyancing solicitor in Grasmere you must be sure that your lawyer goes through the deeds thoroughly. Your bank may require your conveyancing solicitor to take out an indemnity policy. Some of the more diligent conveyancing solicitors in Grasmere may determine 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 premises.

I am using a search engine for the term conveyancing in Grasmere it reveals numerous solicitorsin the area. With so much choice what is the best way to find the right conveyancer for my move?

The best method of choosing the right conveyancer is through a trusted referral, so seek the counsel of colleagues and relatives who have purchased a property in Grasmere or the reputable estate agent or financial adviser. Costs for conveyancing in Grasmere vary, so it's advisable to secure at least four fee estimates from varying types of law firms. Be sure to obtain confirmation that the costs are guaranteed not to to be inflated.

Am in the process of buying my first property in Grasmere. Conveyancing solicitor already instructed. The broker pointed out that a survey is not necessary as the property was only built 16 yrs ago.

You would be best advised to have a Home Buyer's Report. Given the residence is more than ten years old the property will be without a warranty, so you don't want to take a risk. Where a property of this age shows no signs of defects a Home Buyer's report may be sufficient. The report should highlight any apparent issues and recommend additional investigation where relevant. If there are any signs of material issues get a full Building Survey from the beginning.
