Why would I instruct a Saffron Walden conveyancing practice when national conveyancers are so much cheaper?
Its a good idea to scrutinise conveyancing costs in Saffron Walden and you should seek a competitive fee calculation but don’t waste your energy looking for the cheapest Saffron Walden conveyancer.

Our lawyers will update you as to headway and keep you informed. Should it ever be necessary to call the office you will know who you need to speak to and they will be sure you are in the know.
The Saffron Walden conveyancing firm handling our Saffron Walden conveyancing has identified a discrepancy when comparing the assumptions in the home valuation survey and what is revealed within the legal papers for the property. My lawyer informs me that he needs to check that the bank is happy with this discrepancy and is content to go ahead. Is my lawyer’s stance right?
Your solicitor must comply with the UK Finance Lenders’ Handbook provisions which do require that your lawyer disclose any incorrect assumptions in the lender’s valuation report and the legal papers. Should you refuse to allow your lawyer to make the appropriate notification then your lawyer will have no choice but to discontinue acting for both parties.

I am buying a victorian detached house in Saffron Walden. Our aim is to convert the garage to an office at the house.Will the conveyancing process include enquiries to ascertain if these alterations are prohibited?
Your conveyancer will check the deeds as conveyancing in Saffron Walden can occasionally identify restrictions in the title deeds which restrict certain changes or necessitated the permission of a 3rd party. Some extensions call for local authority planning permissions and approval in compliance with building regulations. Certain locations are designated conservation areas and special planning restrictions apply which frequently prevent or affect extensions. It would be sensible to check these issues with a surveyor prior to committing yourself to a purchase.

The property agent will want to be informed of your solicitor's details (make sure the conveyancers are on the lender’s panel).

Once carried out (assuming no problems) it takes approximately ten days for the mortgage offer to be issued. Nationwide will issue the offer to you and your conveyancers. The transaction will then take it’s course according the nature and complexity of the conveyancing in Saffron Walden.
I own a 4 bedroom Georgian house in Saffron Walden. Conveyancing practitioner represented me and Accord Mortgages Ltd. I happened to do a free search for it on the Land Registry database and there are a couple of entries: the first freehold, the second leasehold under the matching property. Is it worth asking Accord Mortgages Ltd to clarify?
You need to read the Freehold register you have again and check the Charges Register as there may be mention of a lease. The best way to be sure that you are also the registered owner of the leasehold and freehold title as well is to check (£3). It is not completely unheard of in Saffron Walden and other locations in the country and poses no real issues for owners other than when they buy they have to account for both freehold and leasehold interests when dealing with purchasers. You can also check the situation with your conveyancing solicitor who conducted the conveyancing.
