Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Sandy

Having been recommended your web site we were going to go ahead with a conveyancing solicitor in Sandy recommended by you but stumbled across alternative estimates via the web appear less pricey – why is this?

There are plenty of conveyancers advertising what appear to be cut price. Our recommendation is to think twice as to how much you respect your own move to you are willing to take 'cheap' risks in relation to the standard of the conveyancing. Some hide fees deep into the terms of engagement. The law firms that we put forward for conveyancing in Sandy neverbehave this way.

The vendors of the home we are purchasing hired a conveyancing practitioner in Sandy who has suggested a preliminary contract with a deposit of 5k. Are such agreements the norm for Sandy conveyancing transactions?

This type of preliminary agreement is not the norm in Sandy, conveyancers are not keen on them as they divert attention from the primary focus, namely conveyancing and if you end up having your deposit forfeited then the solicitor is left exposed. In addition, there is no certainty that just because the seller has executed an exclusivity agreement they will complete the sale with you. They may breach the contract if they are offered a large enough incentive to do so because a wronged purchaser with the benefit of a lockoutcontract will still be obliged show losses as a consequence of the breach and this may not equate the extra amount that the owner may gain by breaching the agreement, however morally shameful that may be.

How does conveyancing in Sandy differ for newly converted properties?

Most buyers of new build property in Sandy contact us having been asked by the seller to sign contracts and commit to the purchase even before the house is completed. This is because builders in Sandy typically acquire the land, 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 conveyancing solicitors 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 Sandy or who has acted in the same development.

Jane (my partner) and I may need to sub-let our Sandy garden flat for a while due to a career opportunity. We used a Sandy conveyancing firm in 2003 but they have closed and we did not have the foresight to seek any advice as to whether the lease prohibits the subletting of the flat. How do we find out?

A small minority of properties in Sandy do contain a provision to say that subletting is only allowed with permission. The landlord is not entitled to unreasonably refuse but, in such cases, they would need to see references. Experience suggests that problems are usually caused by unsatisfactory tenants rather than owner-occupiers and for that reason you can expect the freeholder to take up the references and consider them carefully before granting permission.

    How long is the Lease? In the main the outlay for major works are not built into the maintenance charges, albeit that some managing agents in Sandy obliged tenants to contribute towards a reserve fund created for the specific purpose of establishing a fund for major works.

At last I have had an offer on an flat in Sandy accepted, the vendor does nevertheless have a connected purchase. The current proprietors have put an offer on a flat, but it’s not been accepted yet, and are looking at other apartments booked. I have chosen a nearby conveyancing lawyer in Sandy. What do I do now? At what stage do I apply for the mortgage with Co-operative?

It is usual to have anxieties where there is an associated chain as you are unlikely to want to incur costs too early (home loan application is in the region of £1k, then survey, Sandy conveyancing search costs, etc). First, you must check that your solicitor is on the Co-operative approved list. Concerning the subsequent stages this very much dictated by the circumstances of your case, desire for this property and on the state of the market. In a buoyant market some purchasers will apply for the mortgage with Co-operative and arrange for the valuation and only if it comes back ok would they request their conveyancer to proceed with the conveyancing in Sandy.
