Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Poole

Why do I have to pay up front for my conveyancing in Poole?

If you are buying a property in Poole your solicitor will ask you to provide them with funds to cover the search fees. Generally this is asked for to cover the fees of the Local Authority Search. When the deposit is payable against the total price then this will be required immediately prior to exchange of contracts. Any further balance that is needed will be payable shortly before completion.

We are planning to move house in March. Does my conveyancing solicitor update the removal company on the day of completion. As an aside, can you put forward a removal company in Poole. Conveyancing firm was chosen before I stumbled across your site.

On the afternoon of completion you can pick up the house keys from your property agent however this should only occur once the vendors solicitors inform the agent that they have the completion monies and the keys can be released. You should tell the removal company that they can start moving you in. We do not suggest a particular removal organisation but can assist you in locating a conveyancing in Poole or a legal practice with expertise in conveyancing in Poole.

Can I be sure that the Poole conveyancing solicitor on the Principality panel is any good?

When it comes to conveyancing in Poole obtaining recommendations is a good start. Before you go ahead, check if they offer a no sale no fee offer. Also, you often get what you pay for - a firm which quotes more, will often provide a better service than one which is cheap as chips. We would always suggest that you speak with the solicitor conducting your transaction.

After what feels like an age I have had an offer on a flat in Poole agreed to, the vendors do nevertheless have a connected purchase. The sellers have offered on a property, but it’s not yet agreed to, and are looking at other flats in the pipeline. I have selected a high street conveyancing solicitor in Poole. What do I do now? At what point should I apply for the mortgage with Clydesdale?

It is usual to have apprehensions where there is a chain as you are unlikely to want to be too out of pocket prematurely (mortgage application is in the region of one thousand pounds, then survey, Poole conveyancing search charges, etc). First, you should ensure that your lawyer is on the Clydesdale conveyancing panel. Concerning the next phase this very much dictated by the circumstances of your case, desire for this property and on the state of the market. During a buoyant market some buyers would apply for a home loan with Clydesdale and arrange for the valuation and only if it comes back ok would they pay their conveyancing practitioner to press on with searches.

I am close to exchanging contracts on the sale of our home in Poole and the buyers lawyers are claiming that there is a possibility that the property was built land that was not decontaminated. A high street Poole conveyancer would know this is not the case. It does beg the question why the buyers are using an online conveyancing firm as opposed to a conveyancing solicitor in Poole. We have lived in Poole for six years we know that this is a non issue. Do we get in touch with our local Authority to get confirmation need.

It sounds as though you may have a conveyancing firm currently acting for you. What do they say? 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)

How does conveyancing in Poole differ for new build properties?

Most buyers of new build or newly converted property in Poole contact us having been asked by the builder to sign contracts and commit to the purchase even before the residence is ready to move into. This is because house builders in Poole typically acquire the real estate, 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 conveyancers 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 Poole or who has acted in the same development.

I am looking for a flat up to £235,500 and found one near me in Poole I like with a park and railway links in the vicinity, however it only has 52 remaining years left on the lease. There is not much else in Poole suitable, so just wondered if I would be making a grave error buying a short lease?

Should you need a home loan that many years will be problematic. Reduce the offer by the expected lease extension will cost if it has not already been discounted. If the existing proprietor has owned the premises for a minimum of twenty four months you may ask them to start the process of the extension and then assign it to you. You can add 90 years to the existing lease term and have £0 ground rent by law. You should speak to your conveyancing lawyer concerning this matter.

My business partner and I are looking to lease a unit on a shopping parade. Can you recommend lawyers offering no-sale-no charges for commercial conveyancing in Poole for under 1500k?

Whether you are looking to purchase or sell a shop, pub, restaurant, office, retail premises or a complete business we will put you in touch with the right firm.
