As someone with no idea as to conveyancing in Handsworth what’s the number one tip you can impart for the legal transfer of property in Handsworth

You may not hear this from too many lawyers but conveyancing in Handsworth or throughout Birmingham is an adversarial experience. In other words, when it comes to conveyancing there exists an abundance of opportunity for confrontation between you and other parties involved in the home moving process. For example, the seller, selling agent and even potentially your mortgage company. Choosing a lawyer for your conveyancing in Handsworth is a critical decision as your conveyancer is your adviser, and is the ONE person in the process whose role it is to act in your best interests and to keep you safe.

Every so often a third party with a vested interest may attempt to sway you that you should follow their advice.

It would be unwise to be seduced by the cheapest Handsworth conveyancing quote. You really do get what you pay for when it comes to property lawyers. A cheap quote may mean that the conveyancing solicitor is handling a lot of jobs at one time and you won’t get the quality of service and the attention that you need. It is, however, wise to use a conveyancer who has a fixed fee on a no sale, no fee basis. This way, you know exactly what you’ll have to pay in ahead of the deal.

We are planning to move property in April. Will my conveyancing solicitor update the removal company on the completion day. Incidentally, can you suggest a removal company in Handsworth. Conveyancing solicitor was chosen prior to coming across your website.

On the afternoon of completion you can pick up the house keys from the property agent however this should only take place when the sellers lawyers confirm to the agent that they have the completion monies and the keys can be released. After that you will need to inform the removal company that they can start moving you in. As a matter of policy we do not recommend a specific removal organisation but can help you choose a conveyancing in Handsworth or a lawyer with expertise in conveyancing in Handsworth.

It is not clear whether my bank obliges me to make sure the lease term for the flat is extended prior to the completion date. I have called into my local Handsworth bank branch on a couple of occasions and was told they are content with the situation and they will lend. My Handsworth conveyancing solicitor - who is on the bank conveyancing panel- telephoned and was told they refuse to lend based on their specific requirements. I have no idea who is right.

As long as the conveyancer is on the bank approved list, they must comply with the CML Handbook specifications for the lender. Unless your lawyer obtains specific confirmation in writing that the mortgage company will go ahead, your lawyer has no choice but to refrain from exchanging contract and committing you to the purchase. We would suggest that you ask the bank to contact your lawyer in writing confirming that they will accept the number of years left on the lease.

I purchased my apartment on 6 September and my personal details is yet to be on the land registry website. Need I be worried? My conveyancing solicitor in Handsworth said it should be recorded in less than a month. Are properties in Handsworth particularly slow to register?

As far as conveyancing in Handsworth is concerned, registration is no faster or slower than the rest of the country. Rather than based on location, timescales can adjust subject to the party submitting the application, whether there are errors and if the Land registry must send notices to any other persons or bodies. At present approximately 80% of such applications are fully addressed within 12 days but some can be subject to longer hold-ups. Historically registration is effected once the purchaser is living at the property thus registration formalities is not usually an essential issue yet where it is urgent that the the registration takes place urgently then you or your lawyers could speak with the land registry and explain the circumstances.

How does conveyancing in Handsworth differ for newly converted properties?

Most buyers of new build property in Handsworth approach us having been asked by the housebuilder to sign contracts and commit to the purchase even before the premises is built. This is because developers in Handsworth usually acquire the land, 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 conveyancers 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 used to new build conveyancing in Handsworth or who has acted in the same development.
