Completed the sale of my flat in Sawbridgeworth last August yet the purchaser is e-mailing daily complaining that her lawyer needs to hear from mine. What should my lawyer have done following completion?
After completion of your house sale your solicitor should send the transfer deeds and all additional paperwork to the purchaser's conveyancer. Where appropriate, your solicitor must also send confirmation that the home loan has been redeemed to the purchasers solicitors. There is unlikely to be post completion steps just for conveyancing in Sawbridgeworth.
I am being told by my lawyer that breach of easement insurance is required on my purchase. What is the typical level of cover needed for conveyancing in Sawbridgeworth?
The right level of breach of easement indemnity insurance should be dictated by who who your lender is. It would differ for example between Birmingham Midshires and Norwich and Peterborough Building Society. Conveyancing lawyers as opposed to borrowers take out such insurances.
We expect to receive a AIP from Principality this week so we know how much we could potentially offer as otherwise we only have online calculators to go by (which aren't taking into account credit checks etc). Do Principality recommend any Sawbridgeworth solicitors on the Principality conveyancing panel, or is it better to go independently?
You will need to appoint Sawbridgeworth solicitors independently although you'll need to choose one on the Principality conveyancing panel. The solicitor represents both you and Principality through the process.
I am currently in the process of buying my council flat in Sawbridgeworth. I have a mortgage agreed with Leeds Building Society. Conveyancing is not something I have any knowledge of. Can I proceed without a solicitor easily? I think we can but we keep being told I should have one. Any advice?
It is not advisable to proceed with a house purchase without a solicitor. The council's solicitor are not acting for you. You need a solicitor for a number reasons. One of which is to verify what plans the Council have for repairs and refurbishment for the next five years. Many leaseholders have been stung for contributions of thousands of pounds. In any event, if you are getting a mortgage with Leeds Building Society, you will need to appoint a solicitor on the Leeds Building Society conveyancing panel.
I have been told that property searches are the primary reason for obstruction in Sawbridgeworth conveyancing transactions. Is this right?
The Council of Property Search Organisations (CoPSO) has noted the conclusions of research by MoveWithUs that conveyancing searches do not feature amongst the most frequent causes of delays in the conveyancing process. Local searches are not likely to be the root cause of holding up conveyancing in Sawbridgeworth.
four months have gone by following my purchase conveyancing in Sawbridgeworth completed. I have checked the Land Registry site which shows that I paid £200,000 when infact I paid £215,000. 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.
