Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Highnam

Why would one appoint a Highnam conveyancing company given that online conveyancers are less overpriced?

To take your time to find scrutinise conveyancing costs in Highnam and you should seek an affordable estimate but don’t be focused with scouring the internet for the cheapest Highnam conveyancer. Identifying the right conveyancer can be the distinction between a seamless and a stressful home move. You need to ensure that you have expert advice from a specialist conveyancer. Emails can't take the place of a telephone discussion and are no substitute for a one to one meeting.

Our lawyers will update you as to any developments making sure that you are never in the dark.

In the event thatI were to acquire a freehold housein Highnam mortgage fee and dispense with a survey and no local authority searches how much would I expect to to save on my conveyancing in Highnam?

Any savings you would achieve will be isolated to the costs for searches. Your lawyer still got to do everything else - money laundering, communicating with the sellers lawyer, stamp duty return, register the property etc. You might save a bit for them not having to register a charge but it won't be a lot.

We note that you have a post code search directory listing solicitors on the Yorkshire BS conveyancing panel. Do companies pay you a commission if I appoint them for our conveyancing in Highnam?

We are a listing service only for law firms wishing to communicate if they are on the Yorkshire BS conveyancing panel or other lender panels. We do not charge referral fees to any conveyancer that you subsequently appoint for your conveyancing in Highnam.

We are selling our home in Highnam. Does my property lawyer have to be on the Lloyds conveyancing panel in order to deal with redeeming my mortgage?

Ordinarily, even if your lawyer is not on the Lloyds conveyancing panel they can still act for you on your sale. It might be that the lender will not release the original deeds (if applicable and increasingly irrelevant) until after the mortgage is paid off. You should speak to your lawyer directly before you start the process though to ensure that there is no problem as lenders are changing their requirements fairly frequently at the moment.

There are plenty of conveyancing solicitors in Highnam but how do I know who I should use?

We would encourage you not to go for the lowest Highnam conveyancing fees. You really do get what you’re paying for when it comes to conveyancing solicitors. 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 go into the conveyancing with your eyes wide open.

I have been told by my conveyancer that breach of easement insurance is required on my purchase. What is the typical level of cover needed for conveyancing in Highnam?

The appropriate level of breach of easement indemnity insurance depends on who your lender is. It would differ for example between Yorkshire Building Society and The Royal Bank of Scotland. Conveyancing solicitors as opposed to borrowers take out such policies.

I am selling my house. I had a double glazing fitted in October 2010, but did not receive a FENSA certificate or Building Regulation Certificate. My buyer's lender, Skipton are being difficult. The Highnam solicitor who is on the Skipton conveyancing panel is saying indemnity insurance will be fine but Skipton are requiring a building regulation certificate. Why do Skipton have a conveyancing panel if they don't accept advice from them?

It is probably the case that Skipton have referred the matter to their valuer. The reason why Skipton may not want to accept indemnity insurance is because it does not give them any reassurance that the double glazing was correctly and safely installed. The indemnity insurance merely protects against enforcement action which is very unlikely anyway.

My wife and I purchased a 4 bedroom Edwardian house in Highnam. Conveyancing solicitor represented me and Godiva Mortgages Ltd. I happened to do a free search for it on the Land Registry database and there are two entries: one for freehold, the second leasehold under the exact same property. If a house is not a freehold shouldn't I have been informed?

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 Highnam and other locations in the country and poses no real issues for owners other than when they buy they have to account for both freehold and leasehold interests when dealing with mortgage companies. You can also check the situation with your conveyancing lawyer who conducted the work.
