Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Shirehampton

I selected a Shirehampton based solicitor for my conveyancing in Shirehampton today. Going through the terms of engagement I seeI am liable for costs even if the dealdoes not proceed. Should I go with them or choose a web based conveyancing company advertising no-sale-no-fee conveyancing in Shirehampton?

Generally there is a compromise along the lines that if "No Completion No Fee" is advertised then the conveyancing charges will tend to be be uplifted to counteract the transactions that abort. Please beware that such deals tend not to protect you from expenses such your Shirehampton conveyancing search expenses.

At what point does exchange of contracts happen for purchase conveyancing in Shirehampton and do I need to attend the lawyers branch?

If you are near to one of the conveyancing solicitors in Shirehampton you are invited in to sign documents. However, the firms we work with provide a countrywide conveyancing service and give just as detailed and professional a job for you when dealing with you by post or email. The signing of the contract is not the critical part. Signing on the dotted line simply enables the conveyancer to officially exchange at the suitable time, which is ordinarily shortly after signing. The exchange process is nowadays normally dealt with by telephone and can be very rapid, although where a long "chain" is in play, since the process requires the relevant party's solicitor (not necessarily a conveyancing solicitor in Shirehampton)to be in the office available at the end of the phone to exchange contracts.

What will a local search inform me about the property we're buying in Shirehampton?

Shirehampton conveyancing often commences with the submitting local authority searches directly from your local Authority or via a personal search company for instance PSG The local search plays a central part in many a Shirehampton conveyancing purchase; as long as you wish to avoid any nasty surprises after you move into your property. The search should supply information on, amongst other things, details on planning applications relevant to the premises (whether granted or refused), building control history, any enforcement action, restrictions on permitted development, nearby road schemes, contaminated land and radon gas; in all a total of thirteen subject areas.

I've recently found out that there is a flying freehold element on a house I put an offer in a fortnight ago in what was supposed to be a simple, no chain conveyancing. Shirehampton is where the house is located. Can you offer any advice?

Flying freeholds in Shirehampton are rare but are more likely to exist in relation to terraced houses. Even though you don't necessarily need a conveyancing solicitor in Shirehampton you would need to get your solicitor to go through the deeds thoroughly. Your bank may require your conveyancing solicitor to take out an indemnity policy. Some of the more diligent conveyancing solicitors in Shirehampton may ascertain that this is not enough and that the deeds be re-written to give you the most up to date legal protection. If so, the next door neighbour also had to sign up to the revised deeds.It is possible that your lender will not accept the situation so the sooner you find out the better. You should also check with your insurance broker as to whether they will insure a flying freehold property.

I was pointed in your direction by a number of property agents in Shirehampton to locate a solicitor using your seach tool. Is there a financial inducement for Estate Agents to offer your lawyers over alternative conveyancing organisations?

We refuse to give any financial incentive for pointing buyers and sellers to this site. We thought it would be too underhand a fee as a client could think, ‘How come the agent getting a kickback? Why aren’t I getting any benefit too?’ So we decided to step away from that.

What are my options where I am unhappy with the conveyancer who conducted my conveyancing in Shirehampton?

We live in an imperfect world, and unfortunately occasionally matters do not go as planned. Nevertheless there is recourse where you were not happy with your conveyancing in Shirehampton. This varies from trying to resolve matters directly with them, through to reporting a solicitor to their governing body. If things still aren’t sorted out you may consider getting in touch with the Legal Ombudsman.
