Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Poynton

We are planning to purchase with Earl Shilton BS. I called into a few high street practices but cant to find a Poynton conveyancing firm on the Earl Shilton BS approved list. Could you assist?

Please do take advantage of the search tool on this page. Please choose the building society and type Poynton or your preferred area and you will be presented with a number of lawyer based in Poynton or by proximity to you.

This question may be naive but I am unexperienced as a first time purchaser of a two bedroom flat in Poynton. Do I collect the keys to the house on completion from my solicitor? If so, I will instruct a High Street conveyancing solicitor in Poynton?

There is no need to visit the lawyers office on the day of completion. Conveyancing lawyers for you will electronically transfer the purchase money to the seller's solicitors, and once they have received this, you will be called to receive the keys from the selling Agents and move into your new home. This tends to happen early afternoon.

How can we know in advance if a Poynton conveyancing solicitor on the Lloyds panel is any good?

When it comes to conveyancing in Poynton seeking recommendations is a sensible 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 advertising the lowest fees. We would always advocate that you speak with the lawyer carrying out your transaction.

I had a mortgage agreed in principle with Co-operative. Poynton conveyancing practitioners have been chosen. How long does it take for Co-operative to send the offer to the conveyancer?

Some lenders take longer than others. Have Co-operative completed the survey? Have you informed Co-operative as to your lawyers' details and checked that your lawyers are on the Co-operative conveyancing panel? It is not unusual for a mortgage offer to take a month to come through.

4 months have elapsed following my purchase conveyancing in Poynton completed. I have checked the Land Registry site which shows that I paid £200,000 when infact I paid £215,000. Why the discrepancy?

The price paid figure is taken from the application to register the purchase. It is the figure included in the Transfer (the legal deed which transfers the asset from one person to the other) and referred to as the 'consideration' or purchase price. You can report an error in the price paid figure using the LR online form. In most cases errors result from typos so at first glance the figure. Do report it so they can double check and advise.

I have been on the look out for a ground for flat up to £245,000 and identified one close by in Poynton I like with a park and transport links nearby, the downside is that it only has 61 years on the lease. There is not much else in Poynton in this price bracket, so just wondered if I would be making a grave error buying a lease with such few years left?

Should you require a mortgage that many years will be a potential deal breaker. Discount the offer by the expected lease extension will cost if not already taken into account. If the current owner has owned the property for a minimum of twenty four months you can request that they commence the lease extension formalities and then assign it to you. You can add 90 years to the current lease with a zero ground rent applied. You should consult your conveyancing lawyer about this matter.

I need to appoint a conveyancing solicitor for residential conveyancing in Poynton. I have stumble upon a site which looks to be the ideal solution If it is possible to get all the legals done via phone that would be ideal. Do I need to be concerned? 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?

How easy is it to change a solicitor as I need to find a Poynton based one who is on the bank conveyancing panel. How simple is it to change conveyancer?

If you haven't yet instructed a solicitor to do anything for you and at this stage simply received an estimate as to costs, you're perfectly free to choose a different solicitor to carry out your work for you. The best way is to get recommendations from friends or family who have actually used the solicitor or conveyancer in Poynton that you're considering.
