Reasons to use our Ingatestone conveyancing solicitors

  • 1 Personal touch together with a wealth of local knowledge are key benefits that you should look for when selecting conveyancing solicitors. Ingatestone property deals can become significantly more stressful because of poor communication between all the parties. The lawyers listed strive to make sure that the lines of communication are open and act on arising issues and developments expeditiously.
  • 2 The Ingatestone conveyancing firms that we work with are committed to providing value for money, efficient and transparent conveyancing service to home buyers, sellers and investors in Ingatestone
  • 3 Lawyer conveyancing firms have very good personal links with Ingatestone selling agents and work very closely with them and local surveyors so as to ensure transactions proceed expeditiously.
  • 4 Retaining the services of a local Solicitor generally results in a more personalised service. When using a large conveyancing firm, your matter is handled by a team of people who check what is happening on the file by reading from their computer screens.
  • 5 Low cost packages from online conveyancers might be tempting. However, these organisations are often based hundreds of miles away with little appreciation of the factors that impact property transactions in Ingatestone

Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Ingatestone

We decided to go with a high street solicitor for my conveyancing in Ingatestone recently. After carefully reading the Terms and Conditions I notewe are liable for charges even if the movefalls through. Would I be best advised to appoint a web based solicitor practice who offer no completion no cost conveyancing in Ingatestone?

It is usually a trade off in that if "No Sale No Fee" is advertised then the fee levels will tend to be be higher to offset those cases that do not go ahead. Please beware that these deals rarely protect you from expenses such as Ingatestone conveyancing search expenses.

Can you explain why leasehold purchase conveyancing in Ingatestone is more expensive?

In summary, leasehold conveyancing in Ingatestone and elsewhere usually requires extra due diligence compared to freehold transactions. This includes reviewing the lease, corresponding with the landlord concerning serving applicable notices, securing up-to-date service charge and management information, securing the landlord’s consents and reviewing management accounts. The obligations on both the landlord and the tenant in the lease need to be studied by the buyer’s conveyancing team and read from beginning to end – regardless of the fact the lease has passed through many different property solicitors hands since it was first granted.

I am remortgaging my home in Ingatestone, does my lawyer have to be on the Santander Solicitor panel?

In theory, you could use a solicitor that is not on the Santander conveyancing panel, but Santander would require one of their panel solicitors to be instructed to act in their interests, and you'd have to pay for this - so most people instruct a panel solicitor. It's also easier, as otherwise you'd have to deal with two solicitors for the same transaction.

How does conveyancing in Ingatestone differ for new build properties?

Most buyers of new build premises in Ingatestone contact us having been asked by the seller to exchange contracts and commit to the purchase even before the premises is finished. This is because builders in Ingatestone usually buy 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 conveyancing solicitors 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 Ingatestone or who has acted in the same development.

I have been pointed in your direction by a number of estate agents in Ingatestone to select a property lawyer using your seach tool. Is there a financial inducement for Estate Agents to promote your lawyers ahead of a competitor’s?

We don’t give any referral fee for sending work to this site. We found it would be just too difficult to pay a commission because a client could think, ‘How come the agent getting a kickback? Why am I not getting any benefit too?’ So we decided to step away from that.

We are buying a three room flatin Ingatestone with a home loan from a bank. We would like to retain our lawyer in Ingatestone but our lender says he's not on their "panel". It seems we have little choice but to instruct from the our lender panel firms or keep our Ingatestone solicitor and pay for one of their panel ones to represent our mortgage company. We feel as though this is unjust; Can we not simply insist that our bank use our Ingatestone lawyer?

Unfortunately,no. The mortgage company mortgage issued is subject to its terms and conditions, one of which will be that lawyers will on the mortgage company's conveyancing panel. Until recently, most mortgage companies had large numbers of law firms on their panels, including most conveyancing solicitors in Ingatestone : a borrower could choose one for themselves, as long as it was on the lender's panel. The lender would then simply instruct the borrower's lawyers to act for the lender, too. You can use your lender's panel lawyers or you could borrow from another lender which does not restrict your choice. A further alternative is for your solicitors to apply to be on the conveyancing panel for your mortgage company.
