Having been recommended your organisation we were about to go ahead with a conveyancing solicitor in Upper Clapton recommended using your comparison tool but stumbled across some other fee calculations on the internet seem cheaper – how come?
There are plenty of conveyancing organisations advertising pretending to offer £99 conveyancing, yet more often than not extrafees end up with the closing bill being escalated. In accordance with regulatory requirements charges outlined in terms and conditions should be transparent and reasonable raised The conveyancers that we put forward for conveyancing in Upper Clapton set out all legal fees for a domestic conveyancing matter.
I am soon to complete on the purchase of a property in Upper Clapton but as a consequence of wreckage from a small fire at the property I have managed to agree compensation from the current proprietors in the sum of £3k by way of a adjustment in the price. I had intended this to be dealt with as part of amending the contract but Bank of Ireland are not allowing this. Why were they informed?
The solicitor being on a Bank of Ireland approved list is required to advise Bank of Ireland of any changes to the purchase price. If you were to refuse your conveyancing practitioner to disclose the reduction to Bank of Ireland then they would have to discontinue acting for you. In addition, Bank of Ireland and you would have to appoint a new conveyancer for your conveyancing in Upper Clapton.
I am selling our house in Upper Clapton and the buyers lawyers are claiming that there is a possibility that the property was constructed land that was not decontaminated. A high street Upper Clapton lawyer would know this is not the case. It does beg the question why the buyers are using a nationwide conveyancing firm rather than a conveyancing solicitor in Upper Clapton. We have lived in Upper Clapton for six years we know that this is a non issue. Should we contact our local Authority to seek confirmation that the buyers are looking for.
It would appear that you have a conveyancing lawyer 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 health insurance to cover that same ailment)
four months have elapsed following my purchase conveyancing in Upper Clapton concluded. I have checked the Land Registry site which shows that I paid £150,000 when infact I paid £180,000. Why the discrepancy?
The price paid figure is taken from the application to register the purchase. It is the figure included in the Transfer (the legal deed which transfers the asset from one person to the other) and referred to as the 'consideration' or purchase price. You can report an error in the price paid figure using the LR online form. In most cases errors result from typos so at first glance the figure. Do report it so they can double check and advise.
I decided to have a survey completed on a property in Upper Clapton prior to instructing solicitors. I have been informed that there is a flying freehold aspect to the property. The surveyor advised that some lenders may refuse to grant a mortgage on such a property.
It varies from the lender to lender. Lloyds has different instructions for example to Halifax. If you e-mail us we can check with the relevant lender. If you lender is happy to lend one our lawyers can help as they are used to dealing with flying freeholds in Upper Clapton. Conveyancing may be slightly more expensive based on your lender's requirements.
I am thinking of appointing a conveyancing practitioner in Upper Clapton for my remortgage. Can I review a firm’s complaints history with the legal regulator?
