Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Whiteley

We went with a Whiteley based lawyer for my conveyancing in Whiteley recently. Going through the terms of engagement I notewe are responsible for fees even if the movedoes not happen. Should I ditch them and use a web based lawyer who offer no completion no cost conveyancing in Whiteley?

Generally there is a concession along the lines that if "No Sale No Fee" is offered then the fee levels will tend to be be higher to neutralise those transactions that abort. Dont forget that such promotions generally do not protect you from expenditure such your Whiteley conveyancing search expenses.

How does conveyancing in Whiteley differ for newly converted properties?

Most buyers of new build residence in Whiteley approach us having been asked by the seller to exchange contracts and commit to the purchase even before the residence is constructed. This is because builders in Whiteley 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 used to new build conveyancing in Whiteley or who has acted in the same development.

I have been recommended by numerous property agents in Whiteley to find a conveyancer on your site. What’s the financial advantage for Estate Agents to recommend your services over and above another?

We refuse to offer any commission for directing people to this site. We thought it would be too underhand to pay a commission as home movers will think, ‘Why is the agent getting a kickback? Why aren’t I receiving any benefit too?’ So we decided to step away from that.

I have just appointed agents to market my ground floor flat in Whiteley. Conveyancing is yet to be initiated, however I have just had a yearly maintenance charge demand – should I leave it to the buyer to sort out?

Your conveyancing lawyer is likely to suggest that you should clear the service charge as usual given that all ground rent and service payments will be apportioned as part of the financial calculations for completion monies, so you will be reimbursed by the purchaser for the period running from after the completion date to the next payment date. Most management companies will not acknowledge the buyer until the service charges have been paid and are up to date, so it is important for both buyer and seller for the seller to show that they are up to date. This will smooth the conveyancing process.

What are the specific benefits to instructing a high street property lawyer in Whiteley

Lots of house movers in Whiteley opt for a local property lawyer so that they can pop into the lawyer’s offices in the event that they have concerns, and to deliver mortgage deeds rather taking the chance of depending on the Royal Mail.

One could say that there is a marginal advantage in opting for a conveyancing practitioner nearby to the premises you are buying, due to the familiarity of the region and possible local issues - but this is debatable. Most conveyancers carry out their work over the internet and may be any place in the world.
