Do contrast pricing. Make use of our comparison tool on this site. The prices may contrast greatly but the service one can expect are distinct between solicitors as is true with most professions.
It is is a decade since I bought my house in Marple. Conveyancing lawyers have just been instructed on the sale but I can't find the deeds. Is this a major issue?
Don’t worry too much. First there is a possibility that the deeds will be with the lender or they may still be with the solicitor who acted in your purchase. Secondly in most cases the property will be recorded at the land registry and you will be able to establish that you own the property by your conveyancing lawyers acquiring current official copies of the land registers. The vast majority of conveyancing in Marple relates to registered property but in the unlikely event that your property is unregistered it adds to the complexity but is not insurmountable.
Are there restrictive covenants that are commonly identified as part of conveyancing in Marple?
Covenants that are restrictive in nature can be picked up when reviewing land registry title as part of the process of conveyancing in Marple. An 1874 stipulation that was seen was ‘The houses to be erected on the estate are each to be of a uniform elevation in accordance with the drawings to be prepared or approved by the vendor’s surveyor…’

Taking into account that I will soon part with hundreds of thousands of pounds on a garden flat in Marple I would like to talk to a lawyer regarding theconveyancing prior to appointing the firm. Is this something that you can arrange?

Estate agents have just been given the go-ahead to market my garden flat in Marple. Conveyancing solicitors are to be appointed soon, but I have just received a yearly maintenance charge demand – Do I pay up?
Your conveyancing lawyer is likely to suggest that you should discharge the service charge as normal given that all ground rent and service payments should be allotted on completion, so you should recover the relevant percentage by the buyer for the period running from after the completion date to the subsequent invoice date. Most managing agents will not acknowledge the buyer unless the service charges have been paid and are up to date, so it is important for both buyer and seller for the seller to show that they are up to date. This will smooth the conveyancing process.
