Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Oundle

I was recommended to a lawyer who has given a fee calculation of £1200 for freehold conveyancing in Oundle. I am looking to sell a modern property for £150,000. Are these estimated fees excessive? Is it above the average fee for conveyancing in Oundle?

The charges are a bit high. If you shop around you may be able to trim some of the expense by say £125. That being said, you couldlive to rue choosing an an unknown lawyer.

It is 10 years ago since I acquired my property in Oundle. Conveyancing solicitors have recently been retained on the sale but I am unable to find my title deeds. Is this a problem?

Don’t worry too much. First the deeds may be kept by your lender or they could be archived with the conveyancers who handled your purchase. Secondly the chances are that the property will be registered at the land registry and you will be able to establish that you are the registered owner by your conveyancing solicitors acquiring up to date copy of the land registers. Almost all conveyancing in Oundle involves registered property but in the unlikely event that your property is unregistered it is more tricky but is resolvable.

I can see plenty of here regarding conveyancing in Oundle but can you isolate your top tip for selecting the right conveyancer in Oundle

Do not opt for the lowest Oundle conveyancing costs illustration. You really do get what you pay for when it comes to conveyancing solicitors. A cheap quote may mean that the conveyancing solicitor is handling a lot of jobs at one time and you won’t get the quality of service and the attention that you need. It is, however, wise to use a conveyancer who has a fixed fee on a no sale, no fee basis. This way, you know exactly what you’ll have to pay in advance.

We had chosen solicitors with offices in Oundle on the Nationwide solicitor approved list. They are now charging me a separate charge for the legal aspects of the Nationwide mortgage. Is this an additional conveyancing fee specified by Nationwide?

As unfair as it may appear, as long as it’s in their Terms and Conditions or Quote then yes your lawyer can levy a fee for this. This charge is not dictated by Nationwide but by your Oundle property lawyer. Some firms on the Nationwide panel will levy an ‘acting for lender’ fee but plenty of firms incorporate it on their overall fee.

My husband and I have organised a further advance on our mortgage from Clydesdale as we intend to carry out improvements to our property in Oundle. Do we need to appoint a nearby Oundle solicitor on the Clydesdale conveyancing panel to handle the legals?

Clydesdale don't usually require a member of their approved list of lawyers to handle the formalities. If they do require any legal work then you would need to ensure that such a lawyer was on the Clydesdale panel.

Despite weeks of looking the Title Certificate and documents to our property can not be found. The solicitors who conducted the conveyancing in Oundle 5 years ago no longer exist. What do I do?

These day there are copies made of almost everything, and your conveyancer should know precisely where to look for all the relevant documentation so you can buy or sell your house without a hitch. If duplicates are not available, your conveyancer may be able to arrange cover in the form of insurance or indemnities against possible claims on your premises.

I have been on the look out for a ground for flat up to £195,000 and identified one close by in Oundle I like with a park and station in the vicinity, however it only has 49 years unexpired on the lease. There is not much else in Oundle in this price bracket, so just wondered if I would be making a mistake buying a short lease?

If you need a mortgage the shortness of the lease will be problematic. Discount the price by the amount the lease extension will cost if it has not already been discounted. If the current owner has owned the property for at least twenty four months you could request that they commence the lease extension formalities and pass it to you. An additional ninety years can be extended on to the existing lease with a zero ground rent applied. You should speak to your conveyancing solicitor regarding this matter.
