What is your number one tip for choosing a conveyancing solicitor in Whaley Bridge

Do not opt for the cheapest Whaley Bridge conveyancing fees. 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.

I am due to move property in November. Should my conveyancing solicitor communicate with the removal company on the day of completion. On a separate note, can you recommend a removal company in Whaley Bridge. Conveyancing firm was chosen before I stumbled across this site.

On the afternoon of completion you will need to collect the keys from the selling agent but this should only happen when the vendors solicitors advise the agent that they have the completion monies and the keys can be released. You can tell the removal men that they can start moving you in. As a matter of policy we do not recommend a specific removal organisation but can help you locate a residential property solicitor in Whaley Bridge or a firm that specialises in conveyancing in Whaley Bridge.

I have decided to exercise my right to buy my property in Whaley Bridge off the council. I have a mortgage offer with Co-operative. Conveyancing is not something I have any knowledge of. Can I proceed without a solicitor easily? I think we can but we keep being told I should have one. Any advice?

It is not advisable to proceed with a house purchase without a solicitor. The council's solicitor are not acting for you. You need a solicitor for a number reasons. One of which is to verify what plans the Council have for repairs and refurbishment for the next five years. Many leaseholders have been stung for contributions of thousands of pounds. In any event, if you are getting a mortgage with Co-operative, you will need to appoint a solicitor on the Co-operative conveyancing panel.

    Has the Lease plan been approved by the Land Registry and if not when will they be lodged for this purpose? Where there is an Undertaking being granted there is the risk of forfeiture of the Headlease subject to relief if one or more of the Underlessees are willing to accept the original Head Lessee’s obligations as otherwise relief will be denied to the Underlessees. The only alternatives are the Head Lessor agreeing not to forfeit the Headlease or the Head Lessee guaranteeing to the Underlessees that it will not be in breach of the Headlease. If there are lifts in the building, please confirm that the owners of flats on the ground and basement floors will not be required to contribute towards the cost of maintenance and renewal. The Landlord must covenant to assume the management if the Management Company goes into liquidation or otherwise defaults in running the management scheme.

I opted to have a survey completed on a property in Whaley Bridge before appointing solicitors. I have been told that there is a flying freehold element to the property. The surveyor has said that some mortgage companies may not issue a mortgage on such a home.

I am short of a 10% deposit on my flat purchase in Whaley Bridge , but I am anxious proceed. What can I do?

One option is to try and agree a smaller deposit. Many sellers will agree to a lower deposit or even no deposit for a first time buyer or 100% mortgage. Be aware though that if you fail to complete you will still need to hand over a minimum of 10% of the purchase price regardless of how much deposit was agreed.

You can also agree a simultaneous exchange and completion as no deposit is required for this however neither party will be tied in until completion actually takes place and it can be risky if sellers change their mind at the last moment
