Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Polperro

We have rather assertive vendors who has insisted on a lock out agreement with a deposit 10k. Is it wise to enter into such agreements?

This kind of preliminary agreement is not the norm in Polperro, conveyancers are often found to veer clients away from them as they detract from the main conveyancing focus and if you end up losing your deposit then the lawyer is left exposed. In addition, there is no assurance that just because the vendor has executed a lock out contract they will complete the sale with you. They may be tempted to break the agreement if they are offered a large enough financial inducement to do so because an aggrieved buyer with the benefit of a lockoutcontract will still be legally obliged to establish consequential losses from the breach and this may not equalise the extra amount that the owner may secure by breaking the agreement, no matter how morally condemnable it undoubtedly is.

Having sold my house in Polperro last May yet the purchaser is Skype messaging every few hours to moan that her conveyancer needs to hear from mine. What are the post completion sale legalities following completion?

After completion of your disposal your conveyancer should forward the transfer documentation and all supplemental paperwork to the buyer’s lawyers. If applicable, your solicitor must also send confirmation that the legal charge in favour of the lender has been repaid to the buyers lawyers. There are no post completion tasks peculiar conveyancing in Polperro.

After scouring for an affordable lawyer in Polperro, most comment that I must look for a CQS assured lawyer. Can you explain what CQS is?

Polperro Conveyancing Quality Scheme law firms have been granted certification under the Law Society's Scheme (CQS) The Law Society established CQS to promote high standards in the home legal process. CQS enables buyers and sellers to recognise practices who provide a quality residential conveyancing. Polperro is one of locations in England and Wales in which accredited firms are based. The conveyancing scheme requires solicitors to undergo a strict assessment, compulsory training, self-certification, spot checks and yearly assessments in order to maintain CQS status. It is available to solicitors and not licensed conveyancers and has the support of the Legal Ombudsman.

I am intent on selling our home in Polperro and according to the buyers it appears that there is a risk of it being built on contaminated land. A high street Polperro conveyancer would know that there is no such problem. It does beg the question why the buyers are using an online conveyancing outfit as opposed to a conveyancing solicitor in Polperro. Having lived in Polperro for many years we know that this is a non issue. Do we get in touch with our local Authority to seek clarification need.

It would appear that you have a conveyancing lawyer already. What do they say? You need to check with 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 illness)

Are there restrictive covenants that are commonly identified as part of conveyancing in Polperro?

Restrictive covenants can be picked up when reviewing land registry title as part of the process of conveyancing in Polperro. An 1874 stipulation that was seen was ‘The houses to be erected on the estate are each to be of a uniform elevation in accordance with the drawings to be prepared or approved by the vendor’s surveyor…’

I need to instruct a conveyancing solicitor for leasehold conveyancing in Polperro. I've land on a site which appears to be the perfect offering If there is a chance to get all this stuff done via phone that would be ideal. Do I need to be wary? What are the potential pitfalls?

As usual with these online conveyancers you need to read ALL the small print - did you notice the extra charge for dealing with the mortgage?
