Just contacted my conveyancing solicitor in Mitcham who completed the legal work two years ago requesting a conveyancing estimate based on the same type of house sale & purchase (a leasehold property and a freehold property) of similar values with a mortgage from Yorkshire Building Society. It looks as though am now being charged twice the amount. Should I look for a cheaper online firm of conveyancing solicitor?

The estimate does seem a tad on the high side. If you shop around you may be able to get the conveyancing a bit cheaper by say £125.

I am acquiring a property for cash in Mitcham. I have been living for the last 20 years in Mitcham. Conveyancing searches are a lot of money. As I know the road and vicinity very well must I have all the conveyancing searches?

Provided that you do not need a mortgage, then the vast majority of the Mitcham conveyancing searches are non-obligatory. Your lawyer will try and sway you, no-doubt strongly, that you should have searches completed, but she is duty bound to do this. Do take into account; if you are intend to dispose of the house one day, it could be of interest to your prospective purchaser what the searches disclose. Sometimes houses with functional issues can still reveal unexpected search results. A competent conveyancing solicitor in Mitcham should provide you some practical guidance concerning this.

Just bought a terraced house in Mitcham , how long will it take for the Land Registry to register my proprietorship? My Mitcham conveyancing solicitor has been very slow, so I want to check that my purchase is recorded.

As far as conveyancing in Mitcham is concerned, registration is no quicker or slower than anywhere else in England and Wales. As opposed to being determined by geographic area, timeframes can adjust subject to who lodges the application, whether there are errors and if the Land registry communicate with any 3rd parties. As of today roughly 80% of submission are fully dealt with in less than three weeks but some can be subject to longer delays. Registration takes place after the new owner has moved in to the premises therefore registration formalities is not typically primary concern but if it is urgent that the the registration takes place urgently then you or your solicitor should speak with the land registry and explain the circumstances.

Am I better off to instruct a Mitcham conveyancing solicitor in close proximity to the house I am purchasing? I have an old university friend who can perform the legal work but they are based approximately 350kilometers away.

The benefit of a high street Mitcham conveyancing practice is that you can attend the office to execute paperwork, hand in your ID and apply pressure on them where appropriate. Having local Mitcham know how is a plus. That being said nothing is more important than finding someone that will pull out all the stops for you. If other friends have used your friend and the majority were impressed that must outweigh using an unknown Mitcham conveyancing lawyer just because they are Mitcham based.

There are a number of houses in Mitcham on unadopted roads. I am acquiring one such house. Are there any benefits to purchasing a residence on a privately owned road?

Mitcham conveyancing lawyers are familiar with transacting homeson private. The solicitor should review the title to find any rights or responsibilities. In many cases there is a management company (wholly owned by residents) that proprietors make annual payments for the upkeep of the road. Where there is one, the road should be maintained and appear nicer than council maintained.
