Not many law firms or advisers will tell you this but conveyancing in Hilsea and elsewhere in Hampshire is often a confrontational process. In other words, when it comes to conveyancing there exists an abundance of room for friction between you and other parties involved in the home moving process. For instance, the vendor, property agent and even potentially the lender. Selecting a solicitor for your conveyancing in Hilsea should not be taken lightly as your conveyancer is your adviser, and is the ONLY person in the legal process whose role it is to act in your best interests and to keep you safe.

On occasion a potential adversary will attempt to persuade you that you should follow their advice. As an example, the property agent may claim to be assisting by suggesting your conveyancer is dragging his heels. Or your financial adviser may advise you to do something that is against your lawyers recommendation. You should always trust your lawyer above all other parties in the home moving process.

The estate agent has sent us the confirmation of our purchase of a new build apartment in Hilsea. Conveyancing is necessary evil at the best of times but I have never purchased a new build flat before. Can you give me some examples of some of the questions asked in new build conveyancing.

Here are examples of a few leasehold new build questions that you may expect your new-build leasehold conveyancing in Hilsea

    Please supply a car parking plan. The Landlord must covenant to assume the management if the Management Company goes into liquidation or otherwise defaults in running the management scheme. Where service of notices and proceedings can be at the property demised please confirm that this can be amended to include simultaneous services at the Lessees’ solicitors’ offices where the Lessee from time to time is not resident in the UK - such solicitors may be varied by notice in writing to the Landlord from time to time but otherwise will be as previously specified.

I decided to have a survey completed on a house in Hilsea before instructing lawyers. I have been told that there is a flying freehold element to the house. The surveyor advised that some banks may refuse to give a mortgage on this type of premises.

It varies from the lender to lender. HSBC has different requirements for example to Nationwide. Should you wish to call us we can look into this further with the relevant mortgage company.

My husband and I are first time buyers - had an offer accepted, yet the estate agent told us that the seller will only issue a contract if we appoint the agent's recommended solicitors as they need a ‘quick sale’. Our preferred option is to instruct a family conveyancer accustomed to conveyancing in Hilsea

It is highly unlikely the sellers are driving this. If they desire ‘a quick sale', turning down a serious purchaser is not the way to achieve this. Bypass the agents and go straight to the owners and explain that (a)you are genuine buyers (b)you are ready to progress, with finances arranged © you are unencumbered (d) you wish to move quickly (e)but you intend to appoint your preferred Hilsea conveyancing solicitors - not the ones that will earn the estate agent a introducer fee or achieve conveyancing thresholds demanded by senior management.
