Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Henbury

IfI was to purchase a straightforward propertyin Henbury for cash and dispense with a survey and no conveyancing searches how much should I expect to have to pay for conveyancing in Henbury?

The only saving you would make on is the Henbury conveyancing searches. A solicitor still got to do everything else - money laundering, liaising with your vendors solicitor, SDLT return, register the property etc. You might save a bit for them not needing to register a charge but it won't be a lot.

Why is leasehold purchase conveyancing in Henbury costs more?

The conveyancing fees for a leasehold property in Henbury is inevitably higher as compared to a freehold transaction. This is due to the additional time necessary in liaising with the landlord and management company to collate the evidence about whether the rent and maintenance fee have been discharged and whether there are any major works due in the foreseeable future on repairs or maintenance of the building.

Will commercial conveyancing searches reveal impending roadworks that could affect a commercial estate in Henbury?

Its becoming the norm that commercial conveyancing solicitors in Henbury will perform a SiteSolutions Highways report as it dramatically cuts the time that conveyancers invest in looking into accurate data on highways that impact buildings and development assets in Henbury. The search result sets out definitive information on the adoption status of roads, footpaths and verges, as well as the implication of traffic schemes and the rights of way surrounding a commercial development sites in Henbury.

For every commercial conveyancing transaction in Henbury it is critical to investigate the adoption status of roads surrounding a site. The absence of identifying developments where adoption procedures have not been dealt with adequately may result in delays to Henbury commercial conveyancing transactions as well as present a risk to future plans for the site. These searches are not conducted for domestic conveyancing in Henbury.

Me and my brother own a renovated Victorian property in Henbury. Conveyancing practitioner represented me and The Royal Bank of Scotland. I happened to do a free search for it on the Land Registry database and I saw a couple of entries: one for freehold, another for leasehold under the exact same address. Is it worth asking The Royal Bank of Scotland to clarify?

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 proprietor of the leasehold and freehold title as well is to check (£3). It is not completely unheard of in Henbury and other locations in 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 mortgage companies. You can also check the position with the conveyancing lawyer who conducted the work.

How does conveyancing in Henbury differ for new build properties?

Most buyers of new build property in Henbury come to us having been asked by the housebuilder to sign contracts and commit to the purchase even before the property is constructed. This is because house builders in Henbury 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 accustomed to new build conveyancing in Henbury or who has acted in the same development.

Am I better off to instruct a Henbury conveyancing practitioner in close proximity to the house I am purchasing? We have a good friend who can execute the legal work but they are based a couple of hundredkilometers away.

The primary upside of using a high street Henbury conveyancing firm is that you can pop in to sign paperwork, present your ID and apply pressure on them where appropriate. They will also have local knowledge which is a bonus. That being said nothing is more important than finding someone that will pull out all the stops for you. If other friends have instructed your friend and on the whole were impressed that must surpass using an unknown Henbury conveyancing solicitor solely due to them being based in the area.
