Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Romsey

Having been recommended your site we were about to go ahead with a conveyancing solicitor in Romsey endorsed using your search tool but have come across some other fee calculations via the web appear cheaper – how come?

There are plenty of conveyancing companies marketing what appear to be the cheapest conveyancing in Romsey. We would urge you to give due consideration as to how important this transaction is to you that you are willing to be penny wise pound foolish in relation to the quality of the legal work. Some hide fees well inside the terms of engagement. The solicitors that we put forward for conveyancing in Romsey neverbehave this way.

The sellers of the house we are hoping to buy have instructed a conveyancing solicitor in Romsey who has recommended a preliminary agreement with a deposit two thousand pounds. Are such agreements sensible?

This type of agreement isn't frequently used in Romsey, conveyancers will often sway clients away from them as they detract from focusing on the main conveyancing focus and if you end up having your deposit forfeited then the solicitor is left exposed. Furthermore, there is no guarantee that just because the owner has entered into an exclusivity contract they will complete the sale with you. They may be motivated to break the agreement if they are offered a big enough incentive to do so because an aggrieved claimant with the benefit of a exclusivity agreement will still have to show losses as a consequence of the breach and these may not amount to the extra amount that the owner may gain by breaking the agreement, no matter how morally condemnable the behaviour is.

Have just purchased a probate house at auction in Romsey. Conveyancing is required. What is next?

Given that you are now to in every practical sense signed on the dotted line you should instruct a conveyancing lawyer soon as you are facing a tight deadline in which to complete the transaction. An auction property will ordinarily have an associated auction set of papers. This will likely include the copy title deeds, local authority and drainage searches. If you have purchased leasehold property the conveyancing papers should include a copy of the lease, management information and a sellers leasehold information form and associated conveyancing paperwork relating to leasehold premises. You should give this to your appointed conveyancing solicitor as soon as possible. You also need to ensure that your finances are in place to complete on the date specified in the contract.

About to purchase maisonette in Romsey. I have received an online quote from a licenced conveyancer, which states: "There will be no charge for dealing with the Building Society if you are obtaining a mortgage". I take this to mean that there will be no additional fee if the solicitor is on the Santander conveyancing panel. I wanted to make sure it means there will be no additional fees for dealing with the mortgage.

They are simply saying that the cost for acting for the lender is included in the fee being quoted. It is worth you checking that the Romsey conveyancer is on the Santander conveyancing panel.

Having read lots of house buying guides, I note that it is considered advisable to get your house surveyed prior to buying it. When I asked my local Romsey solicitor - who is on the Kent Reliance conveyancing panel - on this she said they don't do this and I need to contract an independent surveyor. is that correct?

Kent Reliance will need an independent valuation of the property. Your lawyer will not arrange this. Usually Kent Reliance will appoint their own surveyor to do this, and you will have to pay for it. Remember that this is a valuation for mortgage purposes and not a survey. Your solicitor will not organise the survey but they may be able to put you in touch with a local one that they recommend. RICS offers a find a surveyor service (just google it) where you can search for a qualified surveyor by your Romsey postcode. As you are getting a mortgage with Kent Reliance, you could contact them to see if they have a list of approved surveyors in Romsey.

I am looking for a ground for flat up to £305k and found one close by in Romsey I like with a park and railway links nearby, however it only has 52 years on the lease. There is not much else in Romsey for this price, so just wondered if I would be making a mistake purchasing a short lease?

Should you need a home loan that many years will likely be an issue. Discount the price by the expected lease extension will cost if not already taken into account. If the current proprietor has owned the premises for at least 2 years you may request that they commence the lease extension formalities and then assign it to you. An additional ninety years can be extended on to the existing lease and have £0 ground rent by law. You should consult your conveyancing solicitor about this.

I need to find a conveyancing solicitor for some conveyancing in Romsey. I happened to chance upon a web site which seems to have the ideal offering If there is a chance to get all formalities completed via web that would be preferable. Should I be concerned? What are the potential pitfalls?
