Can you recommend a Platform Home Loans Ltd accepted Ripley conveyancing firm who can have us moved in within under 3 weeks? Would it be better to use a high street Ripley practice or a national comparison site?
We can recommend some very good Ripley conveyancing firms. Another option is to visit the high street in Ripley. Go in to two or three firms and request to speak with a conveyancing solicitor for a quote. Discuss your requirements together with your reasons and get a commitment on your deadline. Appoint the lawyer that you are most comfortable with.
We are intent on selling our property in Ripley and the buyers lawyers are claiming that there is a possibility that the property was built land that was not decontaminated. Any high street Ripley lawyer would know that there is no such problem. It does beg the question why the purchasers instructed a web based conveyancing outfit as opposed to a conveyancing solicitor in Ripley. Having lived in Ripley for six years we know that this is a non issue. Is it a good idea to get in touch with our local Authority to obtain clarification need.
It sounds as though you may have a conveyancing lawyer already. Are they able to advise? You should 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 health insurance to cover that same ailment)
How does conveyancing in Ripley differ for new build properties?
Most buyers of new build property in Ripley come to us having been asked by the seller to sign contracts and commit to the purchase even before the house is constructed. This is because builders in Ripley usually buy 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 property lawyers 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 used to new build conveyancing in Ripley or who has acted in the same development.
I've recently found out that there is a flying freehold element on a house I have offered on last month in what was supposed to be a straight forward, chain free conveyancing. Ripley is the location of the property. Can you shed any light on this issue?
Flying freeholds in Ripley are unusual but are more likely to exist in relation to terraced houses. Even though you don't necessarily need a conveyancing solicitor in Ripley you must be sure that your lawyer goes through the deeds very carefully. Your bank may require your conveyancing solicitor to take out an indemnity policy. Some of the more diligent conveyancing solicitors in Ripley may ascertain 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.
My husband and I are FTB’s - agreed a price, yet the estate agent told us that the owners will only go ahead if we appoint their recommended solicitors as they want a ‘quick sale’. My instinct tells me that we should use a family conveyancer who is familiar with conveyancing in Ripley
We suspect that the seller is unaware of this demand. If they desire ‘a quick sale', taking such a hostile approach to a serious buyer is counter productive. Bypass the agents and go straight to the sellers and make the point that (a)you are genuine purchasers (b)you are excited to move forward, with mortgage lined up © you have nothing to sell (d) you wish to move quickly (e)but you are going to appoint your preferred Ripley conveyancing firm - not the ones that will earn the negotiator at the agency a commission or hit his conveyancing targets demanded by senior management.
