Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Trimdon

In researching consumer advice sites for a recommended lawyer in Trimdon, most comment that I should use a CQS accredited lawyer. Can you explain what CQS is?

The Law Society's Conveyancing Quality Scheme is the recognised quality mark for legal experts in the legal transfer of properties, trusted by some of the UK's leading lenders. In 2011-12 the Conveyancing Quality Scheme was officially recognised by the Council of Mortgage Lenders (CML). The scheme does not cover licenced conveyancers. Trimdon is one of the numerous areas in England and Wales where there are CQS solicitors.

I am close to exchanging contracts on the sale of our home in Trimdon and the buyers lawyers are claiming that there is a possibility that the property was constructed land that was not decontaminated. A local conveyancer would know that there is no such problem. It does beg the question why the buyers instructed an online conveyancing practice rather than a conveyancing solicitor in Trimdon. Having lived in Trimdon for three years we know that this is a non issue. Should we get in touch with our local Authority to seek confirmation need.

It would appear that you have a conveyancing firm currently acting for you. Are they able to advise? You should enquire of your lawyer before you do anything. It is very possible that once the local authority has been informed of a potential issue it cannot be insured against (a bit like being diagnosed with a serious illness and then taking out life insurance to cover that same sickness)

The deeds to our property can not be found. The lawyers who conducted the conveyancing in Trimdon 5 years ago are no longer around. What are my next steps?

These day there are duplicates made of almost everything, and your lawyer should know exactly where to look for all the appropriate paperwork so you can buy or dispose of your property without any difficulty. If duplicates can’t be located, your solicitor may be able to arrange cover in the form of insurance or indemnities protecting you against future claims on your property.

Over the last few months I have been searching for a ground for flat up to £195,000 and found one close by in Trimdon I like with amenity areas and station nearby, the downside is that it's only got 51 remaining years left on the lease. I can't really find anything else in Trimdon in this price bracket, so just wondered if I would be making a grave error buying a lease with such few years left?

Should you need a mortgage the shortness of the lease will likely be problematic. Discount the price by the expected lease extension will cost if it has not already been discounted. If the current owner has owned the property for at least twenty four months you can request that they commence the lease extension formalities and pass it to you. You can add 90 years to the existing lease and have £0 ground rent by law. You should consult your conveyancing lawyer concerning this matter.

I have been sourcing a conveyancing practitioner in Trimdon for my home move. Is it possible to see a firm’s record with the legal regulator?

Members of the public may find documented Solicitor Regulator Association (SRA) determinations arising from investigations commenced on or after 1 January 2008. Go to Check a solicitor's record.

What is the distinction between surveying and conveyancing in Trimdon?

Conveyancing - in Trimdon or anywhere in England and Wales - is the legal term given to transferring legal title of property from one person to another. It therefore includes the checking of the title. Whether buying or selling, you should be aware of anything affecting the property such as proposals by government departments, illegal buildings, or outstanding rates. The conveyancer should conduct the appropriate searches and inquiries on the property. Surveying relates to the structure of a property itself. A surveyor will look at a house, flat and any outbuildings you are purchasing and will help you find out about the condition of the building and, if there are problems, give you leverage for negotiating the buying price down or asking the seller to remedy the problems before you move in.
