Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Waddon

At what point can the exchange of contracts take place for residential conveyancing in Waddon and am I required to be at the lawyers branch?

Where you are in close proximity to our conveyancing solicitors in Waddon you are welcome to come in to sign the paperwork. That being said, the law practices we recommend offer countrywide coverage for conveyancing and give as equally diligent and professional a job for you when communicating with you electronically. The executing of the property agreement is not when everything is set in stone. A signed contract simply enables the firm to officially exchange when the time is right, which will usually be very shortly after signing. The exchange process is nowadays normally dealt with by telephone and can be very rapid, although where an extended "chain" is in the mix, since the process requires the relevant party's solicitor (not necessarily a conveyancing solicitor in Waddon)to be in the office available at the end of the phone to exchange contracts.

There are a variety of conveyancing solicitors in Waddon but how do I know who's good?

It would be unwise to be tempted by the cheapest Waddon conveyancing costs illustration. You really do get what you pay for when it comes to property lawyers. A cheap quote may mean that the conveyancing solicitor is handling a lot of jobs at one time and you won’t get the quality of service and the attention that you need. It is, however, wise to use a conveyancer who has a fixed fee on a no sale, no fee basis. This way, you know exactly what you’ll have to pay in ahead of time.

After months of negotiation I have agreed a price on an apartment in Waddon. My financial adviser pressured me to appoint their solicitor. I paid an advanced payment of £225. A few days later, the lawyer called me sheepishly admitting that they were not on the Aldermore conveyancing panel. Am I right in thinking that I should be due a refund?

You should be able to recover this from the law firm if they were not on the Aldermore panel. They should have asked at the outset which lender you were obtaining a mortgage with. An important lesson to readers of this site is to check that the lawyers are on the appropriate lender panel.

I am selling my flat. I had a double glazing fitted in April 2006, but did not receive a FENSA certificate or Building Regulation Certificate. My purchaser’s lender, Skipton are being pedantic. The Waddon solicitor who is on the Skipton conveyancing panel is happy to accept ‘lack of building regulation’ insurance but Skipton are requiring a building regulation certificate. Why do Skipton have a conveyancing panel if they don't accept advice from them?

It is probably the case that Skipton have referred the matter to their valuer. The reason why Skipton may not want to accept indemnity insurance is because it does not give them any reassurance that the double glazing was correctly and safely installed. The indemnity insurance merely protects against enforcement action which is very unlikely anyway.

How does conveyancing in Waddon differ for newly converted properties?

Most buyers of new build residence in Waddon contact us having been asked by the seller to sign contracts and commit to the purchase even before the property is ready to move into. This is because developers in Waddon tend to acquire the site, plan the estate and want to get the plots sold off as they are building the properties. Buyers, therefore, will have to exchange contracts without actually seeing the house they are buying. To reduce the chances of losing the property, buyers should instruct conveyancers as soon as the property is reserved and mortgage applications should be submitted quickly. Due to the fact that it could be several months and even years between exchange of contracts and completion, the mortgage offer may need to be extended. It would be wise to use a lawyer who specialises in new build conveyancing especially if they are accustomed to new build conveyancing in Waddon or who has acted in the same development.

Over the last few months I have been searching for a ground for flat up to £245,000 and identified one round the corner in Waddon I like with a park and railway links in the vicinity, however it's only got 49 remaining years left on the lease. There is not much else in Waddon for this price, so just wondered if I would be making a mistake acquiring a short lease?

Should you need a home loan the remaining unexpired lease term will likely be problematic. Discount the price by the expected lease extension will cost if not already taken into account. If the current owner has owned the premises for at least twenty four months you could request that they start the process of the extension and then assign it to you. An additional ninety years can be extended on to the current lease term and have £0 ground rent by law. You should speak to your conveyancing solicitor concerning this matter.
