Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Pitsea

I am about to complete on the purchase of a house in Pitsea but as a consequence of wreckage from the recent storms I have was able negotiate compensation from the current proprietors in the sum of £2k in the form of a deduction in the price. I had intended this to be dealt with as part of amending the contract yet HSBC are not allowing this. Why were they involved?

Any lawyer that is on the HSBC conveyancing panel is required to inform HSBC of any amendments to the sale price. If you prohibit your solicitor to report the reduction to HSBC then they would have to discontinue acting for you. In addition, HSBC and you would have to appoint a new conveyancing practitioner for your conveyancing in Pitsea.

The fact that your lawyer is on the Principality conveyancing panel is a help. It would almost certainly delay matters if they were not. However, no solicitor should guarantee a timeframe for your conveyancing, due to third parties outside of your control such as delays caused by lenders,conveyancing search providers or by the other side’s solicitors.

How does conveyancing in Pitsea differ for new build properties?

Most buyers of new build premises in Pitsea approach us having been asked by the builder to sign contracts and commit to the purchase even before the house is built. This is because house builders in Pitsea tend to acquire the land, 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 conveyancing solicitors 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 accustomed to new build conveyancing in Pitsea or who has acted in the same development.

My partner has suggested that I appoint his conveyancers in Pitsea. Should I choose my own conveyancer?

There are no two ways about it the ideal way to choose a conveyancing lawyer is to get guidance from friends or family who have used the solicitor that you are are thinking of instructing.

I have just started marketing my ground floor flat in Pitsea. Conveyancing lawyers have not yet been instructed, but I have recently had a half-yearly service charge invoice – should I leave it to the buyer to sort out?

The sensible thing to do is clear the invoice as you normally would given that all rents and service payments will be apportioned on completion, so you will be reimbursed by the buyer for the period running from after the completion date to the subsequent invoice date. Most managing agents will not acknowledge the buyer until the service charges have been paid and are up to date, so it is important for both buyer and seller for the seller to show that they are up to date. Having a clear account will assist your cause and will leave you no worse off financially.

Pitsea Conveyancing for Leasehold Flats - Examples of Questions you should consider before Purchasing

    Where a Pitsea lease has less than 80 years it will affect the salability of the apartment. It is worth checking with your mortgage company that they are content with residual term of the lease. Leases with less than 80 years remaining means that you will most likely require a lease extension sooner rather than later and it is worth discovering what this would cost. Remember, in most cases you would need to own the premises for a couple of years before you are legally able to extend the lease. This information is useful as a) areas may cause problems in the block as the communal areas may begin to deteriorate if maintenance are not paid for b) if the tenants have an issue with the managing agents you will need to have full disclosure Best to be warned if a new roof is being put on or some other major work is anticipated to be shared by the tenants and could well dramatically impact the level of the maintenance costs or necessitate a specific payment.
