I decided to go with a Accrington based firm for my conveyancing in Accrington yesterday. After carefully reading the Ts and Cs I noteI am responsible for costs even if the dealfalls through. Should I ditch them and appoint an on-line conveyancing company offering no-sale-no-fee conveyancing in Accrington?
Generally there is a compromise along the lines that if "No Sale No Fee" is available then the conveyancing charges will generally be more expensive to cover the cases that do not proceed. You should be mindful that such promotions tend not to protect you from outlay for example Accrington conveyancing search fees.
We are purchasing a property in Accrington. It might be a silly question but how we can trust a conveyancer? At some point we have to send funds into their account. What protection do we have from them run away with our deposit?
Be assured that all money in a Solicitors client account is 100% safe, and even if your Solicitor ran off with it, the Law Society would reimburse you fully.
I am selling my apartment. I had a double glazing fitted in November 2006, but did not receive a FENSA certificate or Building Regulation Certificate. My buyer's mortgage company, Yorkshire BS are being pedantic. The Accrington solicitor who is on the Yorkshire BS conveyancing panel is saying indemnity insurance will be fine but Yorkshire BS are requiring a building regulation certificate. Why do Yorkshire BS have a conveyancing panel if they don't accept advice from them?
It is probably the case that Yorkshire BS have referred the matter to their valuer. The reason why Yorkshire BS 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.
Our sealed bid on a semi in Accrington has been agreed to, but there is a chain. The owners have placed an offer on on an apartment, however it’s not yet agreed to, and are looking at other flats booked. I have instructed a high street conveyancing solicitor in Accrington. What do I do now? At what point should I apply for the mortgage with Santander?
It is understandable to have anxieties where there is a chain as you are unlikely to want to be too out of pocket prematurely (home loan application is approx £1k, then valuation, Accrington conveyancing search fees, etc). The first thing to do is check that your solicitor is on the Santander approved list. As to the next stages this very much depends on the uniqueness of your case, motivation for this property and on the state of the market. During a rising market some home buyers will apply for a home loan with Santander and arrange for the valuation and only if it was satisfactory would they pay their lawyer to move forward with the conveyancing in Accrington.
How does conveyancing in Accrington differ for new build properties?
Most buyers of new build property in Accrington contact us having been asked by the developer to sign contracts and commit to the purchase even before the house is finished. This is because developers in Accrington typically buy the real estate, 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 conveyancing solicitors 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 Accrington or who has acted in the same development.
