Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Kirkby

I hired a local solicitor for our conveyancing in Kirkby last week. Reviewing the official terms of business it is apparent thatI am on the hook for costs even where the conveyance does not complete. Should I go with them or choose a web based solicitor practice advertising no move no charge conveyancing in Kirkby?

Generally there is a compromise along the lines that if "No Completion No Fee" is offered then the conveyancing charges will tend to be be more expensive to cover those transactions that do not proceed.

4 months have elapsed following my purchase conveyancing in Kirkby completed. I have checked the Land Registry website which shows that I paid £150,000 when infact I paid £170,000. Why the discrepancy?

The price paid figure is taken from the application to register the purchase. It is the figure included in the Transfer (the legal deed which transfers the asset from one person to the other) and referred to as the 'consideration' or purchase price. You can report an error in the price paid figure using the LR online form. In most cases errors result from typos so at first glance the figure. Do report it so they can double check and advise.

Kirkby Conveyancing for Leasehold Flats - A selection of Queries before Purchasing

    How is the lease structured? Its a good idea to find out as much as possible regarding the managing agents as they will affect your use and enjoyment of the property. Being a leasehold owner you are often at the mercy of the managing agents from a financial perspective and when it comes to day to day issues like the tidiness of the communal areas. Ask other tenants if they are happy with them. On a final note, be sure you know the dates that the service fees are due to the appropriate party and specifically what you get for your money. If a Kirkby lease has fewer than eighty years it will impact the value of the apartment. It is worth checking with your mortgage company that they are willing to to proceed given the lease term. A short lease means that you will most likely have to extend the lease sooner rather than later and it is worth finding out what this would cost. Remember, in most cases you would need to own the residence for 24 months before you are entitled to carry out a lease extension.

How and when do I cover the costs of stamp duty payable for my Kirkby property purchase?
