If you had a top tip for choosing a conveyancing solicitor in Radcliffe what would it be?
We would encourage you not to base your choice on the lowest Radcliffe conveyancing fees. You really do get what you pay for when it comes to property lawyers. A cheap quote may mean that the conveyancing solicitor is handling a lot of jobs at one time and you won’t get the quality of service and the attention that you need. It is, however, wise to use a conveyancer who has a fixed fee on a no sale, no fee basis. This way, you go into the conveyancing with your eyes wide open.
My conveyancer has informed me that lack of right of way insurance is required on my purchase. What is the level of cover for Radcliffe conveyancing?

My partner and I have organised a further advance on our home loan from RBS as we intend to carry out a loft conversion to our property in Radcliffe. Are we obliged to appoint a high street Radcliffe solicitor on the RBS conveyancing panel to handle the paperwork?
RBS do not ordinarily require a member of their approved list of lawyers to deal with the formalities. If they do require any legal work then you would need to ensure that such a lawyer was on the RBS conveyancing panel.

I am buying a new build house in Radcliffe with the aid of help to buy. The builders refused to move on the amount so I negotiated 6k of fixtures and fittings instead. The sale representative told me not inform my lawyer about this deal as it will adversely affect my loan with HSBC Bank. Should I keep quiet?.
All lenders require a Disclosure of Incentives Form from the builder of any new build, converted or renovated property, It is available online from the Lenders’ Handbook page on the CML website. CML form is completed and handed to the lender's surveyor when the inspection is done.
Lenders have different policies on incentives. Some accept none at all, cash or physical, while others will accept cash incentives up to 5%.
Hard to understand why the representative of a builder would be suggesting you withold information from a solicitor when all this will be clearly visible on forms the builder has to supply to its solicitor, the buyer's solicitor and the surveyor.

The benefit of a high street Radcliffe conveyancing firm is that you can pop in to execute documents, hand in your ID and apply pressure on them if necessary. Having local Radcliffe know how is a benefit. However it's more important to get someone that will do a good and efficient job. If other friends have instructed your friend and in the main were content that must outweigh using an unfamiliar Radcliffe conveyancing lawyer solely due to them being Radcliffe based.
