Is there a reason why leasehold purchase conveyancing in Parbold is more expensive?
In short, leasehold conveyancing in Parbold and Lancashire usually warrants more due diligence compared to freehold transactions. This includes lease investigation, communicating with the landlord concerning the service of applicable notices, securing current service charge and management information, securing the freeholder’s consents and reviewing management accounts. The obligations on both the landlord and the tenant in the lease need to be studied by the buyer’s conveyancing team and read from beginning to end – regardless of the fact the lease has passed through many different property solicitors hands since it was first granted.
This question may be naive but I am unexperienced as FTB of a garden flat in Parbold. Do I collect the keys to the house on the completion date from my solicitor? If so, I will use a High Street conveyancing solicitor in Parbold?
There is no need to visit the lawyers office on the day of completion. Your solicitors will transfer the purchase money to the owner’s lawyers, and shortly after the monies have arrived, you should be able to collect the keys from the Estate Agents and start moving into the property. This tends to happen between 1 and 3pm.
We are buying a 4 bedroom semi-detached house in Parbold. We would like to an extension at the rear at the house.Will the conveyancing process include investigations to see if these alterations are prohibited?
Your solicitor will review the registered title as conveyancing in Parbold can occasionally reveal restrictions in the title deeds which prevent categories of changes or need the consent of a 3rd party. Some additions require local authority planning consent and approval in compliance with building regulations. Certain locations are designated conservation areas and special planning restrictions apply which often prevent or affect extensions. It would be prudent to check these issues with a surveyor prior to committing yourself to a purchase.
I am due to exchange contracts on my house. I had a double glazing fitted in August 2008, but did not receive a FENSA certificate or Building Regulation Certificate. My purchaser’s mortgage company, Aldermore are being pedantic. The Parbold solicitor who is on the Aldermore conveyancing panel is happy to accept ‘lack of building regulation’ insurance but Aldermore are requiring a building regulation certificate. Why do Aldermore have a conveyancing panel if they don't accept advice from them?
It is probably the case that Aldermore have referred the matter to their valuer. The reason why Aldermore may not want to accept indemnity insurance is because it does not give them any reassurance that the double glazing was correctly and safely installed. The indemnity insurance merely protects against enforcement action which is very unlikely anyway.
We are downsizing from our home in Parbold and the buyers lawyers are claiming that there is a possibility that the property was built on contaminated land. Any local lawyer would know that there is no such problem. It does beg the question why the buyers used a factory type conveyancing firm as opposed to a conveyancing solicitor in Parbold. We have lived in Parbold for 4 years we know of no issue. Do we contact our local Authority to seek confirmation that there is no issue.
It sounds as though you may have a conveyancing lawyer currently acting for you. Are they able to advise? You must enquire of your lawyer before you do anything. It is very possible that once the local authority has been informed of a potential issue it cannot be insured against (a bit like being diagnosed with a serious illness and then taking out life insurance to cover that same sickness)

Should I appoint a Parbold conveyancing solicitor in close proximity to the house I am buying? We have a good friend who can handle the legal work however her office is a couple of hundredkilometers drive away.
The benefit of a high street Parbold conveyancing practice is that you can visit the firm to execute paperwork, deliver your ID and pester them if necessary. Having local Parbold know how is a plus. However nothing is more important than finding someone that will do a good and efficient job. If you know people who instructed your friend and in the main were happy that should surpass using an unknown Parbold conveyancing solicitor solely due to them being Parbold based.
My partner and I have an offer in principle from Barnsley Building Society who indicated we could borrow up to £218k. At what point do I need to instruct a practitioner for conveyancing? Parbold is where we plan to move to.
It would be wise to instruct a lawyer now requesting that they generate a file on your behalf. This will facilitate: 1) the estate agent to issue a Sales Memo to all parties 2) the seller’s property lawyer to submit the draft paperwork. However, do not ask your property lawyer to start searches until you have your valuation report via Barnsley Building Society and you are happy to proceed.
