As someone with no idea as to conveyancing in Hanslope what’s the number one tip you can impart for the legal transfer of property in Hanslope
You may not hear this from too many lawyers but conveyancing in Hanslope or throughout Buckinghamshire is often a confrontational experience. Put another way, when it comes to conveyancing there is lots of opportunity for friction between you and other parties involved in the legal transfer of property. For example, the vendor, property agent and on occasion a bank. Appointing a lawyer for your conveyancing in Hanslope is a critical decision as your conveyancer is your adviser, and is the ONLY person in the process whose interest is to look after your legal interests and to keep you safe.
On occasion a third party with a vested interest will try and sway you that you should follow their advice. For example, the property agent may claim to be assisting by suggesting your conveyancer is wrong. Or your financial adviser may advise you to do take action that is contrary to your lawyers advice. You should always trust your lawyer above all other parties when it comes to the legal transfer of property.

I am close to exchanging contracts on the sale of our house in Hanslope and according to the buyers it appears that there is a possibility that the property was constructed land that was not decontaminated. A local lawyer would know this is not the case. It does beg the question why the buyers instructed a nationwide conveyancing outfit rather than a conveyancing solicitor in Hanslope. We have lived in Hanslope for six years we know of no issue. Should we contact our local Authority to seek confirmation that there is no issue.
It would appear that you have a conveyancing lawyer already. Are they able to advise? You must check with your lawyer before you do anything. It is very possible that once the local authority has been informed of a potential issue it cannot be insured against (a bit like being diagnosed with a serious illness and then taking out health insurance to cover that same illness)

They would have to be really poor in order to consider replacing them. Has your mortgage offer been generated? If so you must inform them of the new contact details and ensure the loan are re-issued. Your new conveyancer should be on the lenders panel to avoid added charges and delays. So that should be your first question of the new lawyers.

My husband and I plan to acquire our first home in Hanslope. Conveyancing practitioner already appointed. The mortgage adviser suggested that a survey is not appropriate as the house was only constructed 22 years ago.
At the very least you should have a Home Buyer's Report. Given the residence is over ten years old the property will not benefit from a warranty, so you don't want to take a risk. For a property that age with no signs of problems a Home Buyer's report may suffice. The report should highlight any apparent problems and recommend further investigation if appropriate. If there are any signs of material issues get a full structural survey.
