Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Saltash

Should lawyers ask for an advanced payment for conveyancing in Saltash?

Where you are retaining lawyers for conveyancing in Saltash your lawyer will ask you put them with funds to cover the search fees. Generally this is asked for to cover the fees of the Local Authority Search. If any deposit is payable against the sale price then this will be asked for shortly ahead of exchange of contracts. The final balance that is needed should be transferred shortly before completion.

I am helping my mother sell her house in Saltash. Does the conveyancing solicitor order the energy assessment or should I organise this?

Following the abolition of Home Packs, energy performance certificates was left as a required component of moving property. An EPC needs to be commissioned prior to the property being marketed. It is not something that solicitors ordinarily arrange. If you are using a Saltash conveyancing lawyer they might be able to arrange EPC’s given their relationships with reputable Saltash assessors

My offer was accepted on a house in Saltash on 25/3/2024, valuation was booked 3 days after, received a clean bill of health. Conveyancer appointed, so the only thing outstanding was my mortgage offer. Having made daily calls to Barclays and chasing them on my offer, I have now been told that my offer will not be issued unless the lawyer is on the Barclays conveyancing panel. Can the lender hold off the offer?

A lender would not issue an offer until they have details of a lawyer on their panel. It can take a few weeks for Barclays to deal with your lawyer's application to be on the Barclays conveyancing panel. There's no guarantee that your solicitor will be accepted.

Having digested plenty 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 Saltash solicitor - who is on the TSB conveyancing panel - on this she said they don't do this and I need to contract an independent surveyor. Is that normal?

TSB will need an independent valuation of the property. Your lawyer will not arrange this. Usually TSB 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 Saltash postcode. As you are getting a mortgage with TSB, you could contact them to see if they have a list of approved surveyors in Saltash.

It has been 4 months since my purchase conveyancing in Saltash took place. I have checked the Land Registry site which shows that I paid £150,000 when infact I paid £180,000. 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 property 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.

Over the last few months I have been searching for a leasehold apartment up to £305k and identified one round the corner in Saltash I like with amenity areas and railway links in the vicinity, the downside is that it's only got 61 years on the lease. I can't really find anything else in Saltash in this price bracket, so just wondered if I would be making a grave error buying a short lease?

Should you need a mortgage that many years will likely be an issue. Reduce the offer by the anticipated lease extension will cost if not already taken into account. If the current proprietor has owned the property for at least 2 years you may request that they commence the lease extension formalities and pass it to you. You can add 90 years to the existing lease term with a zero ground rent applied. You should consult your conveyancing lawyer concerning this.

I need to instruct a conveyancing practitioner in Saltash for my home move. Can I check a firm’s complaints history with the profession’s regulator?

One may read published Solicitor Regulator Association (SRA) determinations stemming from inquisitions started on or after 1 January 2008. Go to Check a solicitor's record. For details about the period before 1 January 2008, or to check a solicitors record, telephone 0870 606 2555, 08.00 - 18.00 any week day save for Tuesday when lines open at 9.30am. For non-uk callers, use +44 (0)121 329 6800. The regulator may monitor call for training reasons.

I am Googling for Saltash online conveyancing estimates. Can I be sure that all the Saltash firms that are listed on your site are on the mortgage company conveyancing panel?

The law firms listed on our site have assured us via an online form that they are on the lender panel and agreed to advise us to take down their listing in the event of removal off of the lender panel. To date we have not been informed by either a lender or a member of the public that the data about a specific Saltash conveyancing solicitor being on the lender conveyancing panel is incorrect.
