Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Maxton

Can the conveyancing practitioners identified via your search tool conduct auction conveyancing in Maxton?

We know of a number of niche practitioners we can connect you with those who can conduct auction conveyancing. Maxton is one of our locations in which our lawyers have offices.

What does my ID and proof of funds have anything to do with my conveyancing in Maxton? Is this really warranted?

To satisfy the Money Laundering Regulations any Maxton conveyancing firm will require evidence of your identity in all conveyancing matters. This is normally dealt with by provision of a passport and an original bank statement or utility account evidencing your correct address.

In accordance with Money Laundering Regulations, conveyancers are required to investigate not only the identity of conveyancing clients but also the origin of monies that they receive in respect of any matter. An unwillingness to disclose this will result in your solicitor cancelling their relationship with you, as clearly this will cause a conflict between the set Regulations and a refusal to disclose.

Your property lawyers are duty bound to make a disclosure to the appropriate authorities should they consider that any amounts received by them may contravene the Anti-terror and anti-money-laundering rules.

How does conveyancing in Maxton differ for newly converted properties?

Most buyers of new build or newly converted property in Maxton approach us having been asked by the seller to exchange contracts and commit to the purchase even before the premises is built. This is because house builders in Maxton typically acquire the site, 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 property lawyers 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 Maxton or who has acted in the same development.

Yesterday I discovered that there is a flying freehold issue on a property I put an offer in last month in what was supposed to be a straight forward, chain free conveyancing. Maxton is where the house is located. Can you shed any light on this issue?

Flying freeholds in Maxton are unusual but are more likely to exist in relation to terraced houses. Even though you don't necessarily need a conveyancing solicitor in Maxton you must be sure that your lawyer goes through the deeds diligently. Your lender may require your conveyancing solicitor to take out an indemnity policy. Some of the more diligent conveyancing solicitors in Maxton may determine 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 premises.

Given that I will soon spend hundreds of thousands of pounds on a two bedroom apartment in Maxton I would like to talk to a conveyancer about mytransaction before giving the go ahead to the firm. Can this be arranged?

Absolutely - it is our preference to talk to you we do not take any clients on without you speaking to the conveyancer due to be conducting your property ownership legalities in Maxton.There is no ‘factory style conveyancing’ - each client is unique individual, not a case reference. The solicitors that we put you in touch with believe that the figure you are calculated and presented to you for your conveyancing in Maxton should be the figure that you are charged.

As co-executor for the will of my aunt I am disposing of a house in Monmouth but reside in Maxton. My lawyer (based 300 miles from merequires that I execute a stat dec ahead of the transaction finalising. Could you suggest a conveyancing lawyer in Maxton who can attest this legal document for me?

strictly speaking you should not be required to have the documents attested by a conveyancing solicitor. Ordinarily any notary public or solicitor will suffice regardless of whether they are located in Maxton
