I decided to go with a local firm for my conveyancing in Vauxhall yesterday. Reviewing the Terms I noteI am liable for costs even if our purchase aborts. Would I be best advised to instruct a web based solicitor practice promoting no move no charge conveyancing in Vauxhall?
Generally there is a concession along the lines that if "No Sale No Fee" is advertised then the conveyancing charges will tend to be be more expensive to counteract those cases that do not proceed. Also remember that such promotions rarely cover outlay e.g. Vauxhall conveyancing search expenses.
My husband and I are acquiring a newly constructed apartment in Vauxhall and my solicitor is informing me that she has to the lender to reveal incentives from the seller. I am nearing the developer’s deadline to exchange and I would rather not delay matters. Is my lawyer right?
You should not exchange unless you have been advised to do so by your solicitor. A precondition to being on a mortgage company panel is to comply with the UK Finance Lenders’ Handbook conditions. The CML Conveyancing Handbook requires that your lawyer have the appropriate Disclosure of Incentive form completed by the developer and accepted by your lender.
My wife and I are close to exchanging contracts on the sale of our property in Vauxhall and according to the buyers it appears that there is a possibility that the property was constructed land that was not decontaminated. Any high street Vauxhall lawyer would know this is not the case. It does beg the question why the purchasers instructed a nationwide conveyancing practice as opposed to a conveyancing solicitor in Vauxhall. Having lived in Vauxhall for many years we know of no issue. Is it a good idea to get in touch with our local Authority to obtain clarification need.
It would appear that you have a conveyancing firm currently acting for you. What do they say? You must 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 illness)
I used Wolstenholmes a few years past for my conveyancing in Vauxhall. Now, I need my files but the law firm has closed. What do I do?
You should call the Solicitors Regulatory Authority (SRA) to assist in tracing your conveyancing files. They can be contacted on please contact on 0870 606 2555. Alternatively, you should use their online form to make an enquiry. You will need to provide the SRA with as much information as possible to assist their search, including the name and address in Vauxhall of the conveyancing firm of solicitors you previously instructed, the name of conveyancing solicitor with whom you had dealings, and the date on which you last had dealings with the firm.
We're new to the buying process - had an offer accepted, but the property agent informed us that the seller will only issue a contract if we instruct the agent's preferred conveyancers as they want an ‘expedited deal’. Our preferred option is to instruct a high street solicitor with experience of conveyancing in Vauxhall
It is improbable the owners are behind this. Should the seller require ‘a quick sale', alienating a serious purchaser is is going to put the whole deal at risk. Avoid the agents and go straight to the sellers and make the point that (a)you are keen to buy (b)you are ready to go, with mortgage lined up © you are unencumbered (d) you wish to move quickly (e)but you will continue to appoint your preferred Vauxhall conveyancing firm - as opposed tothose that will earn their negotiator at the agency a commission or achieve conveyancing figures pre-set by corporate headquarters.
My plan is to purchase a ground floor maisonette in Vauxhall. Conveyancing solicitor has been waiting for, from the seller, building insurance documents. This afternoon I was informed that the owner must forward the insurance schedule for the flat above also. Why would my property lawyer want to see the insurance for the flat above? Is it strictly required? We have been in hold for the last fortnight…
It is not impossible in leasehold conveyancing in Vauxhall to find Conveyancing in Vauxhall in a minority of cases reveals that the lease requires the leasehold owners to insure their individual flats rather than the landlord insuring the whole building - which is definitely preferable. You should contact your conveyancing practitioner but it would seem that your property lawyer is looking to establish that the whole building is insured. Insuring your flat is no help when it comes to rebuilding after a fire if the 1st floor cannot be reinstated for lack of insurance.
