Why would I appoint a St Ives conveyancing practice when national conveyancers are less expensive?

What does my ID and proof of funds have anything to do with my conveyancing in St Ives? What am I being asked for?

To satisfy the Money Laundering Regulations any St Ives conveyancing firm will require evidence of your identity in all conveyancing transactions. This is usually dealt with by provision of a passport and an original bank statement or utility bill evidencing where you reside.

Under Money Laundering Regulations, conveyancers are duty bound to validate not only the identity of conveyancing clients but also the source of monies that they receive in respect of any matter. An unwillingness to disclose this may result in your conveyancer ending their retainer with you, as clearly this will cause a conflict between the set Regulations and a refusal to disclose.

Your property lawyers are duty bound to inform the appropriate authorities should they consider that any amounts received by them may contravene the Anti-terror and anti-money-laundering rules.

How does conveyancing in St Ives differ for new build properties?

Most buyers of new build residence in St Ives contact us having been asked by the developer to sign contracts and commit to the purchase even before the house is finished. This is because builders in St Ives tend to acquire the real estate, plan the estate and want to get the plots sold off as they are building the properties. Buyers, therefore, will have to exchange contracts without actually seeing the house they are buying. To reduce the chances of losing the property, buyers should instruct conveyancing solicitors as soon as the property is reserved and mortgage applications should be submitted quickly. Due to the fact that it could be several months and even years between exchange of contracts and completion, the mortgage offer may need to be extended. It would be wise to use a lawyer who specialises in new build conveyancing especially if they are accustomed to new build conveyancing in St Ives or who has acted in the same development.

How much should conveyancing in St Ives cost?

Almost all St Ives conveyancing practices will agree to a fixed fee. If further work becomes necessary during the conveyancing your conveyancer is obliged inform you in writing of any additional costs for such work as soon as it becomes apparent. Some work on a no sale no charge principle, others will charge a proportion of the agreed costs, according to the point at which the matter fails.

We would recommend that you obtain a few practices to provide you an estimate.
