Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Shaw

Last February we completed a house move in Shaw. We have since encountered a number of problems with the house which we believe were omitted in the conveyancing searches. What action can we take? What searches should? have been conducted for conveyancing in Shaw?

The question is not clear as what problems have arisen and if they are relate to conveyancing in Shaw. Conveyancing searches and investigations undertaken during the legal transfer of property are carried out to help avoid problems. As part of the process, the vendor completes a document known as a SPIF. answers turns out to be misleading, you could possibly take legal action against the owner for any losses that you have suffered. The survey should have identified any problems with the structure of the property. Assuming a detailed survey was carried out and the issues were not identified, you may have a claim against the surveyor. However, if you did not have a full survey, you may be responsible for fixing any defects that have now been noted. We would always encourage buyers to take every possible step to ensure they are completely aware of the condition of a property before purchase regardless of whether they are buying in Shaw.

Finally the sale completed on my house in Shaw last May but our buyer keeps telephoning me to say his lawyer needs to hear from mine. What are the post completion sale formalities following completion?

Following your house sale your conveyancer is committed to forward the transfer deeds and all of the paperwork to the buyer’s solicitors. Where appropriate, your lawyer must also evidence that the home loan has been discharged to the buyers conveyancers. There are no post completion steps specific conveyancing in Shaw.

Just had an offer accepted on a new build flat in Shaw. Conveyancing is necessary evil at the best of times but I have never purchased a new build flat before. Can you give me some examples of some of the questions asked in new build legal work.

Set out below is a sample of a few leasehold new build questions that you may expect your new-build leasehold conveyancing in Shaw

    Forfeiture - bankruptcy or liquidation must not apply under this provision. The Vendor must covenant to keep unsold units in good repair until long leases are granted therefore. Will the freehold then be transferred for a nominal consideration (not exceeding £100) to the Management Company? Where service of notices and proceedings can be at the property demised please confirm that this can be amended to include simultaneous services at the Lessees’ solicitors’ offices where the Lessee from time to time is not resident in the UK - such solicitors may be varied by notice in writing to the Landlord from time to time but otherwise will be as previously specified. If there are lifts in the building, please confirm that the owners of flats on the ground and basement floors will not be required to contribute towards the cost of maintenance and renewal.

Due to the encouragement of my in-laws I had a survey completed on a property in Shaw ahead of instructing conveyancers. I have been informed that there is a flying freehold element to the property. The surveyor advised that some banks will not issue a mortgage on a flying freehold home.

It depends who your proposed lender is. Santander has different requirements for example to Birmingham Midshires. Should you wish to call us we can look into this further via the appropriate bank. If you lender is happy to lend one our lawyers can assist as they are used to dealing with flying freeholds in Shaw. Conveyancing can be more complicated and therefore you should check with your conveyancing solicitor in Shaw to see if the conveyancing costs will increase in light of this.

What tools are available to search for a Shaw solicitor on the National Westminster Bank conveyancing panel? I am a keen cyclist and am happy to travel upto 10miles to meet the conveyancer.

You can use the tool on this page. Please choose the bank and your location and you will see a number of Shaw conveyancing lawyers located nearest you. We have listed some Shaw conveyancing firms at the bottom of this page and you can telephone them to verify whether they are on the National Westminster Bank approved list

Is it best to go with a Shaw conveyancing practitioner in close proximity to the house I am hoping to buy? An old friend can perform the conveyancing but his firm is located 300miles drive away.

The primary upside of using a high street Shaw conveyancing practice is that you can drop in to sign documents, present your ID and pester them where appropriate. They will also have local knowledge which is a benefit. However it's more important to get someone that will pull out all the stops for you. If you know people who used your friend and they were happy that should outweigh using an unfamiliar Shaw conveyancing solicitor just because they are Shaw based.
