We were about to instruct a conveyancing solicitor in Sawtry recommended by you but have come across some other fee calculations on the internet look less expensive – how come?
There are hundreds of conveyancing companies advertising what appear to be cut price. Our advice is to give due consideration about how important this transaction is to you that you are willing to be penny wise pound foolish with regard to the quality of the legal work. Some hide fees deep into the terms and conditions. The conveyancers that we list for conveyancing in Sawtry neverdo this.
We are soon to complete buying a property in Sawtry but as a consequence of wreckage from the recent storms I have was able negotiate compensation from the current proprietors of six thousand pounds in the form of a deduction in the price. I had intended this to be dealt with as part of a side agreement but Bank of Ireland are not allowing this. Should they have been informed?
The property lawyer being on a Bank of Ireland approved list is required to advise Bank of Ireland of any amendments to the purchase price. If you prohibit your property lawyer to report the reduction to Bank of Ireland then they would have to discontinue acting for you. In addition, Bank of Ireland and you would have to appoint a new property lawyer for your conveyancing in Sawtry.
