Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Waterbeach

We are planning to acquire a flat and need a conveyancing solicitor in Waterbeach who is on the Nottingham conveyancing 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 Nottingham . We don't recommend any particular firms conducting conveyancing in Waterbeach.

We are planning to move house in December. Will my conveyancing solicitor call the removal company on the completion day. On a separate note, can you put forward a removal company in Waterbeach. Conveyancing firm was organised prior to coming across this website.

On the day of completion you will need to pick up the keys from your selling agent but this should only occur after the sellers solicitors advise the agent that the monies to complete are in and the keys can be passed over. You can inform the removal company that they can start moving you in. We are not in a position to suggest a specific removal company but can assist you in finding a conveyancing in Waterbeach or a solicitor with expertise in conveyancing in Waterbeach.

I have paid off my mortgage with Leeds Building Society. I assume I don't need a Waterbeach lawyer on the Leeds Building Society panel to remove the mortgage at the Land Registry. Please confirm.

If you have finished paying off your Leeds Building Society mortgage, they may send you evidence showing that you have paid it off. Alternatively they may notify the Land Registry directly. The Land Registry need to see this evidence before they will remove the Leeds Building Society mortgage from the register. Leeds Building Society, and any evidence they send you, will determine the action you need to take. In cases where no conveyancer is acting for you and you have paid off your mortgage:

  1. but are not moving to another property
  2. where Leeds Building Society has sent the Land Registry the discharge electronically, and
  3. Leeds Building Society has instructed the Land Registry to do so
The Land Registry will send you a letter confirming that your Leeds Building Society mortgage has been paid off.

I have finally had an offer on an apartment in Waterbeach agreed to, but there is a chain. The owners have placed an offer on a flat, but it’s not yet agreed to, and are looking at other properties in the pipeline. I have selected a nearby conveyancing solicitor in Waterbeach. What should be my next step? When do I get the mortgage application with Nationwide started?

It is normal to have apprehensions where there is a chain as you are unlikely to want to be too out of pocket prematurely (mortgage application is in the region of £1k, then survey, Waterbeach conveyancing search fees, etc). First, you must ensure that your property lawyer is on the Nationwide conveyancing panel. Regarding the subsequent phase this very much depends on the circumstances of your case, motivation for the property and on the state of the market. During a buoyant market the majority of purchasers would apply for the mortgage with Nationwide and arrange for the valuation and only if it was satisfactory would they request their property lawyer to move forward with the conveyancing in Waterbeach.

What will a local search reveal concerning the house my wife and I buying in Waterbeach?

Waterbeach conveyancing often commences with the applying for local authority searches directly from your local Authority or via a personal search company for example Searchflow The local search plays a central role in many a Waterbeach conveyancing purchase; as long as you wish to avoid any nasty once you have moved into your property. The search should reveal data on, amongst other things, details on planning applications applicable to the property (whether granted or refused), building control history, any enforcement action, restrictions on permitted development, nearby road schemes, contaminated land and radon gas; in all a total of thirteen topic sections.

I've recently found out that there is a flying freehold element on a property I put an offer in a fortnight ago in what was supposed to be a quick, chain free conveyancing. Waterbeach is where the house is located. Is there any guidance you can give?

Flying freeholds in Waterbeach are not the norm but are more likely to exist in relation to terraced houses. Even where you use a solicitor outside Waterbeach you would need to get your solicitor to go through the deeds very carefully. Your lender may require your conveyancing solicitor to take out an indemnity policy. Some of the more diligent conveyancing solicitors in Waterbeach may determine that this is not enough and that the deeds be re-written to give you the most up to date legal protection. If so, the next door neighbour also had to sign up to the revised deeds.It is possible that your lender will not accept the situation so the sooner you find out the better. You should also check with your insurance broker as to whether they will insure a flying freehold residence.

What is different about your site and other web based conveyancing solicitors when it comes to conveyancing in Waterbeach?

At this site receive a fixed fee costs illustration from a Solicitor or Licensed Conveyancer that understands the issues for your conveyancing in Waterbeach. Unlike many estate agents and brokerage sites we are not in the business of charging firms a commission if you appoint them for your conveyancing in Waterbeach

Is it best to appoint a Waterbeach conveyancing practitioner who is local to the property I am purchasing? I have an old university friend who can deal with the legal formalities but her office is over three hundred miles drive away.

The primary upside of using a high street Waterbeach conveyancing firm is that you can drop in to execute documents, hand in your identification documents and apply pressure on them if necessary. Having local Waterbeach know how is a benefit. That being said nothing is more important than finding someone that will pull out all the stops for you. If if people you trust instructed your friend and in the main were content that must surpass using an unfamiliar Waterbeach conveyancing lawyer solely due to them being based in the area.
