Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Milton

I am in the market for a reasonably priced conveyancer. Should I go for for a web based conveyancer as opposed to a local Milton conveyancing solicitor?

In the main conveyancing lawyers in your neck of the woods will benefit from good relationships with your local authority, which can help with the Milton conveyancing searches that your solicitor will require. It can only be a plus if they enjoy existing relationships with the Local Land Registry Office your area Milton, other conveyancers in the location and Milton Estate Agents.

As a first time buyer what is the most important piece of guidance you can impart regarding purchase conveyancing in Milton?

You may not hear this from too many lawyers but conveyancing in Milton and elsewhere in England and Wales is often a confrontational experience. In other words, when it comes to conveyancing there exists plenty of opportunity for friction between you and others involved in the ownership transfer. For example, the vendor, selling agent and even potentially your lender. Selecting a lawyer for your conveyancing in Milton should not be taken lightly as your conveyancer is your adviser, and is the ONLY person in the legal process whose interest is to look after your legal interests and to keep you safe.

Sometimes a third party with a vested interest will try and persuade you that it is in your interests to do things their way. For instance, the property agent may claim to be assisting by suggesting your conveyancer is wrong. Or your financial adviser may tell you to do something that is against your conveyancers guidance. You should always trust your lawyer above all other parties when it comes to the legal transfer of property.

How does conveyancing in Milton differ for new build properties?

Most buyers of new build residence in Milton contact us having been asked by the developer to exchange contracts and commit to the purchase even before the house is built. This is because new home sellers in Milton usually buy 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 conveyancers 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 Milton or who has acted in the same development.

Am I right to be wary that 3rd parties that I am dealing with are recommending an internet conveyancing firm as opposed to a High Street Milton conveyancing practice?

As with lots of service providers, often recommendations from connections can be very helpful. Nevertheless there are lots of people with a keen interest in a conveyancing matter; estate agents, mortgage brokers and lenders may suggest lawyers to use. On occasion these conveyancers might be known to one of the organisations as one of the best in their field, but occasionally there is an underlying financial incentive behind the endorsement. You are free to choose your preferred lawyer. You need to be aware that the majority of banks have an approved list of lawyers you have to use for the lender related work in your conveyancing.

I've recently bought a leasehold house in Milton. Do I have any liability for service charges for periods before my ownership?

In a situation where the service charge has already been demanded from the previous lessee and they have not paid you would not usually be personally liable for the arrears. Strange as it may seem, your landlord may still be able to take action to forfeit the lease. It is an essential part of leasehold conveyancing for your conveyancer to ensure to have an up to date clear service charge receipt before completion of your purchase. If you have a mortgage this is likely to be a requirement of your lender.

If you purchase part way through an accounting year you may be liable for charges not yet demanded even if they relate to a period prior to your purchase. In such circumstances your conveyancer would normally arrange for the seller to set aside some money to cover their part of the period (usually called a service charge retention).

The figure that we have given is a general guide to costs for renewing a lease, but we are not able to provide the actual costs without more detailed due diligence. Do not use this information in a Notice of Claim or as an informal offer.
