Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Kettering

IfI were to acquire a simple residential housein Kettering for cash and have no survey and no conveyancing searches how much should I expect to have to pay for conveyancing in Kettering?

Any savings you would make would be limited to the Kettering conveyancing searches. The lawyer is obliged to do the vast majority of work - money laundering, communicating with your vendors solicitor, SDLT submission, register the ownership etc. A marginal saving might be made by not needing to register a charge but it won't be significant.

It is 10 years ago since I purchased my house in Kettering. Conveyancing lawyers have recently been retained on the sale but I can't find the title deeds. Is this a problem?

You need not be too concerned. First the deeds may be kept by your mortgage company or they may be archived with the lawyers who oversaw your purchase. Secondly in most cases the land will be registered at the land registry and you will be able to prove you are the registered owner by your conveyancing lawyers procuring current official copies of the land registers. Nearly all conveyancing in Kettering relates to registered property but in the unlikely event that your property is not registered it is more of a problem but is resolvable.

Should I be suspicious about estate agents that I am dealing with are suggesting an online conveyancing firm rather than a High Street Kettering conveyancing company?

As with many service providers, often referrals from connections can be worth their weight in gold. But there are numerous players in a conveyancing transaction; estate agents, financial adviser and lenders might all suggest lawyers to instruct. Sometimes the solicitors might be known to one of the organisations as one of the best in their field, but occasionally there may be a commercial relationship behind the recommendation. You have the right to select your preferred conveyancer. However, bear in mind that the majority of lenders operate an approved list of law firms you are obliged to use for the lender related work in your house move.

I am in need of some leasehold conveyancing in Kettering. Before I get started I require certainty as to the remaining lease term.

If the lease is recorded at the land registry - and almost all are in Kettering - then the leasehold title will always include the basic details of the lease, namely the date; the term; and the original parties. From a conveyancing perspective such details then enable any prospective buyer and lender to confirm that any lease they are looking at is the one relevant to that title. For any other purpose, such as confirming how long the term was granted for and calculating what is left, then the register should be sufficient on it's own.
