Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Writtle

We hired a Writtle based solicitor for our conveyancing in Writtle today. Going through the Terms it is apparent thatI am on the hook for fees even if the sale aborts. Should I ditch them and select an on-line lawyer promising no move no charge conveyancing in Writtle?

Generally there is a concession along the lines that if "No Completion No Fee" is advertised then the fee levels will tend to be be uplifted to neutralise the conveyances that abort. Also remember that these deals tend not to cover expenses such as Writtle conveyancing search charges.

All was ready to move into my new home in Writtle next Thursday. My solicitor now wants me to supply her with evidence of content and building insurance for the property as he says that he has to check this in his capacity as lawyer for the mortgage company. What risks does the bank expect the insurance to cover?

All property lawyers on acting for banks would need to check that the following risks are covered fire; lightning; aircraft; explosion; earthquake; storm; flood; escape of water or oil; riot; malicious damage; theft or attempted theft; falling trees and branches and aerials; subsidence; heave;landslip;collision;accidental damage to underground services;professional fees, demolition and site clearance costs; and public liability to anyone else. There are some other issues such as the level of excess that are set out in a lender’s Part 2 instructions. These requirements are not limited to conveyancing in Writtle.

we are a couple who wish to acquire a 1 bedroom apartment in Writtle with a homeloan from Chelsea Building Society.We like our Writtle conveyancing lawyer but Chelsea Building Society informed us he's not listed on their "panel". we are left little option but to use a Chelsea Building Society panel firm or keep our preferred solicitor and pay for a Chelsea Building Society panel lawyer to act for them. We feel as though this is unjust; Can we not simply insist that Chelsea Building Society use our lawyer?

Unfortunately,no. The mortgage offered to you is subject to its various provisions, a common one being that lawyers needs to be on the Chelsea Building Society conveyancing panel. Until recently, most banks had large numbers of solicitors on their panels: a borrower could find one for themselves, as long as it was on the lender's panel. The lender would then simply instruct the borrower's lawyers to act for the lender, too. You can use your lender's panel lawyers or you could borrow from another lender which does not restrict your choice. A further alternative is for your lawyer to apply to be on the conveyancing panel for Chelsea Building Society

It has been 2 months since my purchase conveyancing in Writtle completed. I have checked the Land Registry site which shows that I paid £175,000 when infact I paid £160,000. Why the discrepancy?

The price paid figure is taken from the application to register the purchase. It is the figure included in the Transfer (the legal deed which transfers the residence from one person to the other) and referred to as the 'consideration' or purchase price. You can report an error in the price paid figure using the LR online form. In most cases errors result from typos so at first glance the figure. Do report it so they can double check and advise.

I've recently found out that there is a flying freehold element on a house I have offered on a fortnight ago in what should have been a simple, chain free conveyancing. Writtle is the location of the property. Can you shed any light on this issue?

Flying freeholds in Writtle are unusual but are more likely to exist in relation to terraced houses. Even where you use a solicitor outside Writtle you would need to get your solicitor to go through the deeds very carefully. Your mortgage company may require your conveyancing solicitor to take out an indemnity policy. Some of the more diligent conveyancing solicitors in Writtle may decide 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.

Taking into account that I am about to part with £400,000 on a garden flat in Writtle I would like to talk to a solicitor concerning thehouse move in advance of instructing the firm. Can this be arranged?

This is something that we recommend - it is our preference to talk to you we do not take any clients on without you first talking to the conveyancer due to be conducting your property ownership legalities in Writtle.There is no ‘factory style conveyancing’ - each client is unique individual, not a case number. The practices that we put you in touch with believe that the fees you are quoted for your conveyancing in Writtle should be the amount on the final invoice that you end up paying.
