We hired a high street firm for our conveyancing in Seven Sisters today. Upon checking the small print it is apparent thatwe are liable for costs even if the movedoes not go ahead. Should I ditch them and select an on-line firm advertising no move no charge conveyancing in Seven Sisters?
Generally there is a concession along the lines that if "No Completion No Fee" is available then the conveyancing charges will tend to be be higher to counteract the conveyances that do not proceed. You should be mindful that such arrangements tend not to cover outlay e.g. Seven Sisters conveyancing search costs.
I am purchasing a house for cash in Seven Sisters. I have lived for the last twelve years in Seven Sisters. Conveyancing searches are expensive. As I know the road and vicinity intimately must I have all the conveyancing searches?
Provided that you do not need a home loan, then the vast majority of the Seven Sisters conveyancing searches are non-obligatory. Your solicitor will ’encourage you, perhaps strongly, that you should have searches completed, but he has a professional duty to do this. Do take into account; if you are going to dispose of the house one day, it will likely be be of importance to your future buyer what the searches disclose. There are plenty of instances where premises with no practical issues can still show up unfavourable search results. A competent conveyancing solicitor in Seven Sisters should be able to give you some practical guidance in this regard.
My aunt passed away last year and as sole heir and executor I was left the property in Seven Sisters. The house had a small mortgage remaining of approximately £4500. I want to transfer the title deeds into my name whilst I re-mortgage to Co-operative, pay off the mortgage. Is this possible?
If you plan to re-mortgage then Co-operative will require that you use a conveyancer on the Co-operative conveyancing panel. Here is link to the Land Registry online guidance around what to do when a property owner dies. This will help you to understand the registration process behind changing the details re the registered title. in your case it would appear that you are effectively purchasing the property from the estate. Your Co-operative conveyancing panel solicitor pays the new mortgage money into the estate, the estate pays off the old mortgage, the charge is released and you become the owner and the Co-operative mortgage is registered as a charge at the Land Registry.
My partner and I are selling our property in Seven Sisters and the buyers lawyers are claiming that there is a risk of it being constructed land that was not decontaminated. Any local conveyancer would know this is not the case. For the life of me I don't know why the buyers are using a web based conveyancing practice rather than a conveyancing solicitor in Seven Sisters. Having lived in Seven Sisters for six years we know of no issue. Is it a good idea to contact our local Authority to obtain confirmation that the buyers are looking for.
It sounds as though you may have a conveyancing solicitor currently acting for you. Are they able to advise? You need to check with your lawyer before you do anything. It is very possible that once the local authority has been informed of a potential issue it cannot be insured against (a bit like being diagnosed with a serious illness and then taking out life insurance to cover that same illness)
I have justbeen informed that Stirling Law have closed. They conducted my conveyancing in Seven Sisters for a purchase of a leasehold flat 12 months ago. How can I establish that the property is registered correctly in the name of the former proprietor?
The quickest method to see if the premises is registered to you, you can carry out a search of the land registry (£3.00). You can either do this yourself or ask a law firm to do this for you. If you are not registered you can seek help from one of a number of Seven Sisters conveyancing specialists.
