Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Sudbury

At what point does exchange of contracts happen for sale conveyancing in Sudbury and do I need to attend the solicitors office?

Where you are in close proximity to our conveyancing solicitors in Sudbury you are welcome to attend to sign the paperwork. However, the lender approved solicitors we recommend provide a nationwide conveyancing service and give just as comprehensive and professional a job for you when dealing with you electronically. The signing of the contract is not when everything is set in stone. A signed contract is just a prerequisite for the firm to address the formalities at the appropriate time, which will usually be very shortly after signing. The procedure is is usually a five minute process, although where a long "chain" is in play, since the process requires the relevant party's solicitor (not necessarily a conveyancing solicitor in Sudbury)to be in the office available at the end of the phone to exchange contracts.

I am buying a 3 bedroom semi in Sudbury. Our aim is to convert the garage to an office at the house.Will the conveyancing process include investigations to see if these alterations are permitted?

Your property lawyer will check the deeds as conveyancing in Sudbury will sometimes reveal restrictions in the title documents which restrict categories of alterations or require the consent of a 3rd party. Certain extensions require local authority planning permissions and approval in accordance building regulations. Certain areas are designated conservation areas and special planning restrictions apply which frequently prevent or affect extensions. It would be sensible to check these issues with a surveyor prior to committing yourself to a purchase.

Are all Sudbury Conveyancing Quality Solicitors on the Coventry BS conveyancing panel?

It is true that some banks and building societies now make use of the accreditation scheme as the starting point for Panel membership such as HSBC and Santander. The Law Society’s CQS membership however gives no guarantee to lender panel acceptance. That being said,the CML have indicated that it is likely to become a pre-requisite for solicitors wishing to remain on their approved list of conveyancing solicitors.

After shopping around on the internet I have found a Sudbury solicitor having made sure that they are on the Barclays conveyancing panel. Does my lawyer arrange the survey of the property?

Barclays will need an independent valuation of the property. Your lawyer will not arrange this. Usually Barclays will appoint their own surveyor to do this, and you will have to pay for it. Remember that this is a valuation for mortgage purposes and not a survey. Your conveyancer will not organise the survey but they may be able to put you in touch with a local one that they recommend. RICS offers a find a surveyor service (just google it) where you can search for a qualified surveyor by your Sudbury postcode. As you are getting a mortgage with Barclays, you could contact them to see if they have a list of approved surveyors in Sudbury.

I'm buying a new build house in Sudbury with a loan from Platform Home Loans Ltd. The builders refused to move on the amount so I negotiated £7000 of fixtures and fittings instead. The sale representative suggested that I not reveal to my solicitor about this deal as it would jeopardize my loan with the bank. Is this normal?.

All lenders require a Disclosure of Incentives Form from the developer of any new build, converted or renovated property, It is available online from the Lenders’ Handbook page on the CML website. CML form is completed and handed to the lender's surveyor when the inspection is done.

Lenders have different policies on incentives. Some accept none at all, cash or physical, while others will accept cash incentives up to 5%.

Hard to understand why the representative of a builder would be suggesting you withold information from a solicitor when all this will be clearly visible on forms the builder has to supply to its solicitor, the buyer's solicitor and the surveyor.

How can the Landlord & Tenant Act 1954 impact my commercial offices in Sudbury and how can your lawyers assist?

The particular law that you refer to gives security of tenure to commercial leaseholders, granting the a statutory right to apply to court for a continuation of occupancy at the end of the lease term. There are limited grounds where a landlord can refrain from granting a lease renewal and the rules are complicated. We are happy to direct you to commercial conveyancing solicitors who use the act for protection and help with commercial conveyancing in Sudbury

My father-in-law has urged me to instruct his conveyancers in Sudbury. Should I choose my own solicitor?

Much as we are happy to recommend a Sudbury conveyancing lawyer it’s preferable to choose a conveyancing solicitor is to have recommendations from friends or relatives who have actually used the solicitor you're contemplating using.

Are the Sudbury conveyancing lawyers identified as being on the mortgage company conveyancing panel, together with their details provided by the mortgage company?

Sudbury law firm practices and firms carrying out conveyancing in Sudbury themselves provide us confirmation that they are on the bank conveyancing panel as opposed to being supplied with a list from the bank directly.
