Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Hilsea

We selected a high street lawyer for our conveyancing in Hilsea last week. Upon checking the official terms of business I noteI am on the hook for charges even if our purchase aborts. Should I ditch them and select a web based lawyer promising no completion no charge conveyancing in Hilsea?

Generally there is a compromise along the lines that if "No Completion No Fee" is offered then the fee levels will tend to be be higher to neutralise the conveyances that fail to complete. Also remember that these schemes tend not to protect you from disbursements for instance Hilsea conveyancing search fees.

Our god-son is buying a newly built flat in Hilsea with a home loan from Coventry BS. His solicitor has said that there is a delay in receiving the ‘Disclosure of Incentive Form’. Who needs to receive the form?

The form is intended to provide information to the main parties engaged in the purchase. Therefore, it will be provided to your son’s lawyer who should be on the Coventry BS conveyancing panel as a standard part of the process, and to the surveyor when requested. The developer will be required to start the process by downloading the form and completing it. The form will therefore need to be available for the valuer at the time of his or her site visit. The form should be sent to the Coventry BS conveyancing panel solicitor as early as possible, in order to avoid any last minute delays, and no later than at exchange of contracts.

What can a local search reveal about the house we're buying in Hilsea?

Hilsea conveyancing often starts with the submitting local authority searches directly from your local Authority or via a personal search company for example Searches UK The local search plays an important part in most Hilsea conveyancing purchase; as long as you don’t want any nasty surprises after you move into your property. The search will supply data on, amongst other things, details on planning applications applicable to the property (whether granted or refused), building control history, any enforcement action, restrictions on permitted development, nearby road schemes, contaminated land and radon gas; in all a total of 13 subject headings.

Last May I purchased a leasehold house in Hilsea. Am I liable to pay service charges for periods before completion of my purchase?

In a situation where the service charge has already been demanded from the previous lessee and they have not paid you would not usually be personally liable for the arrears. Strange as it may seem, your landlord may still be able to take action to forfeit the lease. A critical element of leasehold conveyancing for your conveyancer to be sure to have an up to date clear service charge receipt before completion of your purchase. If you have a mortgage this is likely to be a requirement of your lender.

If you purchase part way through an accounting year you may be liable for charges not yet demanded even if they relate to a period prior to your purchase. In such circumstances your conveyancer would normally arrange for the seller to set aside some money to cover their part of the period (usually called a service charge retention).

You have 73 years unexpired the likely cost is going to range between £8,600 and £9,800 as well as plus your own and the landlord's "reasonable" professional fees.
