Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Poole

We chose a local lawyer for our conveyancing in Poole recently. Upon checking the Terms it is apparent thatI am responsible for charges even where the transaction does not complete. Should I ditch them and select a web based solicitor practice advertising no completion no charge conveyancing in Poole?

Generally there is a compromise along the lines that if "No Completion No Fee" is offered then the fee levels will generally be more expensive to cover those transactions that do not go ahead. Dont forget that such offerings tend not to cover disbursements for instance Poole conveyancing search expenses.

We are a couple about to sign contracts for a property in Poole. We encountered a snag. The loan offer with National Westminster Bank runs out on 26/1/2023 but the vendors are insisting on a completion date of 30/1/2023. Is it possible to extend the mortgage offer?

The person best placed to address this question is your lawyer who will hopefully assess if he or she is better off negotiating with the bank, owner’s conveyancers, property agents or possibly all parties given the circumstances your house move to date.

As someone clueless as to the Poole conveyancing process what is the number one tip you can give me for the legal transfer of property in Poole

Not many law firms or advisers will tell you this but conveyancing in Poole and elsewhere in England and Wales is often a confrontational process. In other words, when it comes to conveyancing there is an abundance of opportunity for conflict between you and others involved in the transaction. For example, the seller, property agent and sometimes a lender. Choosing a solicitor for your conveyancing in Poole an important selection as your conveyancer is your adviser, and is the ONLY party in the transaction whose role it is to act in your best interests and to protect you.

Sometimes a potential adversary will attempt to convince you that it is in your interests to do things their way. For instance, the property agent may claim to be assisting by suggesting your solicitor is dragging his heels. Or your mortgage broker may try to convince you to do something that is against your solicitors advice. You should always trust your lawyer above all other parties in the conveyancing process.

Will my lawyer be raising enquiries regarding flooding during the conveyancing in Poole.

Flooding is a growing risk for solicitors dealing with homes in Poole. Some people will purchase a house in Poole, completely expectant that at some time, it may suffer from flooding. However, leaving to one side the physical damage, if a house is at risk of flooding, it may be difficult to obtain a mortgage, satisfactory building insurance, or sell the premises. Steps can be carried out as part of the conveyancing process to forewarn the buyer.

Conveyancers are not best placed to offer advice on flood risk, but there are a numerous checks that can be undertaken by the buyer or by their conveyancers which can figure out the risks in Poole. The standard property information forms given to a purchaser’s conveyancer (where the Conveyancing Protocol is adopted) includes a usual inquiry of the seller to determine whether the property has historically flooded. If the property has been flooded in past which is not revealed by the seller, then a buyer may issue a legal claim for losses stemming from an incorrect reply. The purchaser’s lawyers may also commission an enviro report. This should reveal whether there is a recorded flood risk. If so, further inquiries should be conducted.

Yesterday I discovered that there is a flying freehold element on a property I have offered on two weeks back in what should have been a simple, no chain conveyancing. Poole is the location of the property. Can you shed any light on this issue?

Flying freeholds in Poole are rare but are more likely to exist in relation to terraced houses. Even though you don't necessarily need a conveyancing solicitor in Poole you would need to get your solicitor to go through the deeds thoroughly. Your bank may require your conveyancing solicitor to take out an indemnity policy. Some of the more diligent conveyancing solicitors in Poole may determine that this is not enough and that the deeds be re-written to give you the most up to date legal protection. If so, the next door neighbour also had to sign up to the revised deeds.It is possible that your lender will not accept the situation so the sooner you find out the better. You should also check with your insurance broker as to whether they will insure a flying freehold premises.

Should local authority consent be necessary to change a house into multiple flats in Poole? This has occurred to a property next door to my home in Poole and was unaware of it happening until it was finished.

Planning consent is needed for converting a single house in Poole into apartments but possibly not for reverting back to single dwelling-house so, in answer to your question, yes.
