Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Hayling Island

We chose a high street firm for our conveyancing in Hayling Island today. Going through the fine print I seewe are on the hook for charges even if the sale doesn't happen. Would I be best advised to instruct a web based solicitor practice promoting no-sale-no-fee conveyancing in Hayling Island?

Generally there is a compromise along the lines that if "No Completion No Fee" is advertised then the fee levels will generally be uplifted to counteract the conveyances that do not proceed. Please beware that these arrangements rarely cover disbursements e.g. Hayling Island conveyancing search charges.

I am hoping to move into my new home in Hayling Island next Friday. My lawyer now wants me to supply her with proof of content and building insurance for the property as as she informs me that she is duty bound to validate that it is in order for the mortgage company. What risks does the mortgage company expect the insurance to cover?

Any lawyer on acting for lenders would need to check that the following risks are covered fire; lightning; aircraft; explosion; earthquake; storm; flood; escape of water or oil; riot; malicious damage; theft or attempted theft; falling trees and branches and aerials; subsidence; heave;landslip;collision;accidental damage to underground services;professional fees, demolition and site clearance costs; and public liability to anyone else. There are some other issues such as the level of excess that are set out in a lender’s UK Finance Lenders’ Handbook conditions. These requirements are not limited to conveyancing in Hayling Island.

Why is leasehold purchase conveyancing in Hayling Island costs more?

Hayling Island leasehold conveyancing transactions usually involve additional investigations than freeholds including investigating the Lease, liaising with the Landlord such as serving applicable notices on the Landlord or managing agent, obtaining up-to-date service charge and management information, obtaining Landlord’s consents and reviewing management accounts and formation documents.

Can you clarify what the consequences are if my solicitor is removed from the Nottingham Solicitor panel ahead of completing my conveyancing in Hayling Island?

The first thing to point out is that, this is very unlikely to happen. In most cases even where a law firm is removed off of a panel the lender would allow the completion to go ahead as the lender would appreciate the difficulties that they would place you in if you have to instruct a new solicitor days before completion. In a worst case scenario where the lender insists that you instruct a new firm then it is possible for a very good lawyer to expedite the conveyancing albeit that you may pay a significant premium for this. The analogous situation is where a buyer instructs a lawyer, exchanges contracts and the law firm is shut down by a regulator such as the SRA. Again, in this situation you can find lawyers who can troubleshoot their way to bring the conveyancing to a satisfactory conclusion - albeit at a cost.

My wife and I have a terraced Edwardian property in Hayling Island. Conveyancing practitioner represented me and Nationwide Building Society. I did a free Land Registry search last week and I saw a couple of entries: one for freehold, another for leasehold under the exact same property. I'd like to know for sure, how can I find out??

You need to review the Freehold register you have again and check the Charges Register for mention of a lease. The best way to be sure that you are also the registered owner of the leasehold and freehold title as well is to check (£3). It is not completely unheard of in Hayling Island and other areas of the country and poses no real issues for owners other than when they remortgage they have to account for both freehold and leasehold interests when dealing with purchasers. You can also check the situation with your conveyancing practitioner who carried out the work.
