Just contacted my conveyancing solicitor in Horwich who conducted the legals two years ago asking for a conveyancing quote based on the same type of home move (a leasehold property and a freehold property) of similar values with a home loan from Barclays Direct. It looks as though am now being charged double. Am I right to be tempted to shop around for an alternative conveyancer?

The charges are a little high. Where you are happy to expend time contrasting prices you might trim some of the expense by say a hundred pounds.

Completed the sale of my flat in Horwich last April but my buyer keeps telephoning me complaining that their solicitor needs to hear from mylawyer. What should have happened following completion?

Depending on the transaction, your lawyer must also confirm that the home loan has been redeemed to the buyers conveyancers.

How does conveyancing in Horwich differ for new build properties?

Most buyers of new build or newly converted property in Horwich come to us having been asked by the seller to exchange contracts and commit to the purchase even before the residence is ready to move into. This is because developers in Horwich typically buy the site, 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 property lawyers 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 used to new build conveyancing in Horwich or who has acted in the same development.

Due to the encouragement of my in-laws I had a survey completed on a house in Horwich in advance of retaining conveyancers. I have been informed that there is a flying freehold overhang to the property. My surveyor has said that some lenders tend not give a loan on this type of house.

It depends who your proposed lender is. Santander has different requirements for example to Nationwide. Should you wish to call us we can investigate further with the relevant lender. If you lender is happy to lend one our lawyers can help as they are accustomed to dealing with flying freeholds in Horwich. Conveyancing will be smoother if you use a solicitor in Horwich especially if they are acquainted with such properties in Horwich.
