Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Maidenhead

My partner’s dad is a solicitor. I suspect that I will be offered friends and family pricing for conveyancing, However if that does not come materialise, what kind of figure would I typically be looking at for conveyancing in Maidenhead?

It’s wise to obtain two or three conveyancing estimates. Make use of our comparison tool on this site. You will notice that prices will contrast greatly but the service one can expect are distinct between solicitors as is true with most professions.

Please explain the implications if my solicitor is removed from the Nottingham Solicitor panel ahead of completing my conveyancing in Maidenhead?

The first thing to point out is that, this is very unlikely to happen. In most cases even where a law firm is removed off of a panel the lender would allow the completion to go ahead as the lender would appreciate the difficulties that they would place you in if you have to instruct a new solicitor days before completion. In a worst case scenario where the lender insists that you instruct a new firm then it is possible for a very good lawyer to expedite the conveyancing albeit that you may pay a significant premium for this. The analogous situation is where a buyer instructs a lawyer, exchanges contracts and the law firm is shut down by a regulator such as the SRA. Again, in this situation you can find lawyers who can troubleshoot their way to bring the conveyancing to a satisfactory conclusion - albeit for a fee.

I have been told that property searches are the main reason for obstruction in Maidenhead conveyancing transactions. Is there any truth in this?

The Council of Property Search Organisations (CoPSO) has noted the determinations of research by MoveWithUs that conveyancing searches do not feature within the top 10 causes of hindrances in the conveyancing process. Searches are not likely to feature in any holding up conveyancing in Maidenhead.

How does conveyancing in Maidenhead differ for new build properties?

Most buyers of new build residence in Maidenhead contact us having been asked by the seller to sign contracts and commit to the purchase even before the residence is built. This is because house builders in Maidenhead usually purchase the real estate, 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 used to new build conveyancing in Maidenhead or who has acted in the same development.

Yesterday I discovered that there is a flying freehold issue on a property I have offered on two weeks back in what should have been a straight forward, no chain conveyancing. Maidenhead is the location of the property. What do you suggest?

Flying freeholds in Maidenhead are unusual but are more likely to exist in relation to terraced houses. Even where you use a solicitor outside Maidenhead you must be sure that your lawyer goes through the deeds thoroughly. Your mortgage company may require your conveyancing solicitor to take out an indemnity policy. Some of the more diligent conveyancing solicitors in Maidenhead may ascertain that this is not enough and that the deeds be re-written to give you the most up to date legal protection. If so, the next door neighbour also had to sign up to the revised deeds.It is possible that your lender will not accept the situation so the sooner you find out the better. You should also check with your insurance broker as to whether they will insure a flying freehold residence.

My father-in-law has suggested that I use his lawyers for conveyancing in Maidenhead. Should I use them?

Much as we are happy to recommend a Maidenhead conveyancing lawyer the ideal way to choose a conveyancing solicitor is to have feedback from friends or relatives who have actually previously instructed the conveyancer you're contemplating using.
