Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Mevagissey

We chose a local firm for my conveyancing in Mevagissey last week. Looking through the official terms of business I noteI am responsible for fees even if our purchase aborts. Should I go with them or use an internet lawyer offering no-sale-no-fee conveyancing in Mevagissey?

It is usually ‘give and take’ in that if "No Completion No Fee" is offered then the fee levels will tend to be be more expensive to counteract the conveyances that do not proceed. Also remember that these deals tend not to cover outlay e.g. Mevagissey conveyancing search charges.

Last March we completed a house move in Mevagissey. We have since encountered a number of problems with the house which we believe were omitted in the conveyancing searches. Do we have any recourse? Can you clarify the nature of searches that needed to have been conducted as part of conveyancing in Mevagissey?

The question is vague as what problems have arisen and if they are relate to conveyancing in Mevagissey. Conveyancing searches and investigations initiated as part of the buying process are designed to help avoid problems. As part of the process, the vendor answers a document known as a SPIF. If the information provided is misleading, then you may have a claim against the owner for any losses that you have suffered. The survey should have identified any problems with the structure of the property. Assuming a detailed survey was carried out and the issues were not identified, you may have a claim against the surveyor. However, if you did not have a full survey, you may be responsible for fixing any defects that have now been noted. We would always encourage buyers to take every possible step to ensure they are completely aware of the condition of a property before purchase regardless of whether they are buying in Mevagissey.

How does conveyancing in Mevagissey differ for new build properties?

Most buyers of new build property in Mevagissey come to us having been asked by the developer to exchange contracts and commit to the purchase even before the premises is constructed. This is because house builders in Mevagissey usually acquire the land, 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 accustomed to new build conveyancing in Mevagissey or who has acted in the same development.

Over the last few months I have been searching for a flat up to £305k and found one near me in Mevagissey I like with a park and station in the vicinity, however it's only got 51 years unexpired on the lease. There is not much else in Mevagissey suitable, so just wondered if I would be making a mistake acquiring a lease with such few years left?

If you require a mortgage the remaining unexpired lease term may be problematic. Discount the price by the expected lease extension will cost if not already taken into account. If the current owner has owned the property for a minimum of 2 years you can ask them to start the process of the extension and then assign it to you. You can add 90 years to the current lease term and have £0 ground rent by law. You should consult your conveyancing solicitor concerning this.

I am using a search engine for the term conveyancing in Mevagissey it brings up numerous solicitorsin the area. How do I determine which is the right conveyancing solicitor for purchase transaction?

The best method of seeking a suitable conveyancer is through a trusted recommendation, so enquire of colleagues and family who have acquired a property in Mevagissey or a respected estate agent or financial adviser. Fees for conveyancing in Mevagissey vary, so it's sensible to secure a minimum of four estimates from different property lawyers. Dont forget to clarify that the charges are guaranteed not to increase.
