Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Torrington

I am purchasing a house mortgage free in Torrington. I have lived for the previous 20 years in Torrington. Conveyancing searches are expensive. As I know the area and road very well should I not bother getting the solicitor to do all the conveyancing searches?

Provided that you do not need a mortgage, then all but one or two of the Torrington conveyancing searches are optional. Your conveyancer will ’encourage you, no-doubt strongly, that you should have searches done, but she is duty bound to do this. Do bear in mind; if you are likely to sell the house one day, it will be of interest to your future buyer what the searches determine. Sometimes houses with functional issues can still reveal unpredicted search results. A competent conveyancing solicitor in Torrington will be able to give you some helpful guidance in this regard.

We are purchasing a flat and require a conveyancing solicitor in Torrington who is on the Principality approved panel. Could you point me in the right direction as regards a solicitor?

Our service is limited to being a directory service for firms who wish to be listed as being on the approved conveyancing panel for Principality . We don't recommend any particular firms conducting conveyancing in Torrington.

Do the Building Society Association intend to launch a searchable register to list practices on the Earl Shilton BS conveyancing panel for instance in Torrington?

We have not been informed any intention on the part of the BSA to promote such a register.

Various internet forums that I have come across warn that are the number one reason for stalling in Torrington conveyancing transactions. Is that correct?

The Council of Property Search Organisations (CoPSO) released conclusions of a review by MoveWithUs that conveyancing searches do not figure within the top 10 causes of delays in the conveyancing process. Searches are unlikely to be the root cause of delay in conveyancing in Torrington.

I am looking for a ground for flat up to £245,000 and found one near me in Torrington I like with a park and station nearby, however it's only got 51 remaining years left on the lease. I can't really find anything else in Torrington suitable, so just wondered if I would be making a mistake acquiring a short lease?

Should you require a mortgage the remaining unexpired lease term will likely be a potential deal breaker. Reduce the price by the amount the lease extension will cost if it has not already been discounted. If the existing owner has owned the property for at least 2 years you may request that they commence the lease extension formalities and then assign it to you. An additional ninety years can be extended on to the existing lease term with a zero ground rent applied. You should speak to your conveyancing solicitor concerning this matter.

I have just had an offer accepted on an apartment in Torrington and the estate agent that we are dealing with recommended his conveyancer. She quoted £800 including VAT and 3rd party costs. Does this sound expensive?

You should not rely on 1 estimate. One should seek like-for-like quotes for your conveyancing in Torrington. Then choose one that you are comfortable with and crucially, is on the approved list of the mortgage company that you have applied for a mortgage from.
