My husband and I are FTB’s - had an offer accepted, yet the property agent has warned us that the owners will only go ahead if we use the agent's recommended lawyers as they want a ‘quick sale’. We would rather use a family conveyancer who is familiar with conveyancing in St Ives

We suspect that the seller is not behind this demand. If they desire ‘a quick sale', turning down a serious buyer is counter productive. Bypass the agents and go straight to the owners and make the point that (a)you are motivated buyers (b)you are ready to go, with mortgage lined up © you are chain free (d) you intend to proceed fast (e)however you intend to appoint your own,trusted St Ives conveyancing solicitors - not the ones that will give their negotiator at the agency a referral fee or meet his conveyancing figures set by senior management.

My uncle completed his conveyancing in St Ives 9 years ago. He has since got married, divorced and in recent months got remarried. He now wants to dispose of the St Ives property. I believe he will simply be need to supply copies of his marriage certificates to the solicitor but he is anxious it could hold up the sale of the property. Should he instruct a conveyancing practitioner to update the land title details for the house?

It is not absolutely necessary to bring up to date the title for the property providing you have the proof needed to show how the change of name occurred.

Any buyer’s conveyancing practitioner should review the registered information and requisition evidence to establish the change of name e.g. marriage certificates.
