Having been suggested to visit your web site we were about to go ahead with a conveyancing solicitor in New Southgate recommended on your site but have come across alternative estimates via the web look less pricey – how come?
One can find a variety of conveyancers advertising at first sight what seems to be cut price. We would urge you to think long and hard about how important this transaction is to you that want to take 'cheap' risks in relation to the standard of the conveyancing. Some hide fees deep into the terms of business. The law firms that we put forward for conveyancing in New Southgate will notdo this.
I have a decision in principle. The bank mentioned the home loan came with free conveyancing. Does this mean I have to use their panel conveyancer as I would prefer to use a New Southgate based conveyancing firm?
You should check but the chances are that allocate you one of their panel solicitors if you want the "fee-free" deal. Call the lender and explore if they allow a monetary alternative. Some lenders have previously offered a £250 cashback as a further option in which case you could put that amount towards the cost for your conveyancing solicitor in New Southgate.
Will my lawyer be raising enquiries concerning flooding during the conveyancing in New Southgate.
Flooding is a growing risk for conveyancers dealing with homes in New Southgate. Some people will acquire a house in New Southgate, completely aware that at some time, it may be flooded. However, leaving to one side the physical destruction, where a property is at risk of flooding, it may be difficult to obtain a mortgage, suitable insurance cover, or sell the property. There are steps that can be taken during the course of a property purchase to forewarn the purchaser.
Solicitors are not qualified to give advice on flood risk, but there are a numerous checks that may be carried out by the purchaser or by their conveyancers which should give them a better appreciation of the risks in New Southgate. The conventional set of completed inquiry forms sent to a buyer’s conveyancer (where the Conveyancing Protocol is adopted) contains a standard inquiry of the owner to determine whether the premises has suffered from flooding. In the event that the residence has been flooded in past which is not notified by the seller, then a buyer may issue a compensation claim resulting from an inaccurate answer. A purchaser’s solicitors will also order an environmental report. This should higlight if there is any known flood risk. If so, further inquiries should be made.
I am buying my first flat in New Southgate with a loan from Barclays Direct. The builders would not reduce the amount so I negotiated 6k of additionals instead. The house builders rep suggested that I not inform my conveyancer about this extras as it may put at risk my loan with Barclays Direct. Should I keep quiet?.
All lenders require a Disclosure of Incentives Form from the builder of any new build, converted or renovated property, It is available online from the Lenders’ Handbook page on the CML website. CML form is completed and handed to the lender's surveyor when the inspection is done.
Lenders have different policies on incentives. Some accept none at all, cash or physical, while others will accept cash incentives up to 5%.
Hard to understand why the representative of a builder would be suggesting you withold information from a solicitor when all this will be clearly visible on forms the builder has to supply to its solicitor, the buyer's solicitor and the surveyor.

Been searching for a solicitor for freehold sale conveyancing in New Southgate. I'm selling, simple no mortgage to redeem, no hurry, currently vacant. Had an estimate from a conveyancing practitioner for £1000 excluding VAT which is a tad high given that its so straightforward. Can I pay less for conveyancing in New Southgate?
As it’s a sale only, £425 + VAT should be about the lowest for sale conveyancing in New Southgate.
