Finally the sale completed on my house in Aston last December but the buyer keeps Skype messaging every few hours complaining that his lawyer needs to hear from mysolicitor. What are the post completion sale formalities following completion?
Following your disposal your lawyer is committed to deliver the transfer documentation and all of the paperwork to the purchaser's lawyers. Depending on the transaction, your lawyer should also send confirmation that the legal charge in favour of the lender has been redeemed to the buyers solicitors. There are no post completion tasks peculiar conveyancing in Aston.
Is it the case that all Aston conveyancing solicitors on the Aldermore conveyancing panel are overseen by the SRA?
As a firm of solicitors, in order to be on the Aldermore approved list of solicitors they would need to be regulated by the Solicitors Regulatory Authority. Some banks do permit licenced conveyancers on their panel in which case such firms would be regulated by the Council of Licensed Conveyancers.
Can I be sure that the Aston conveyancing solicitor on the Nottingham panel is any good?
When it comes to conveyancing in Aston getting recommendations is a sensible starting point. Before you go ahead, check if they offer a no sale no fee offer. Also, you often get what you pay for - a firm which quotes more, will often provide a better service than one advertising the lowest fees. We would always advocate that you speak with the lawyer carrying out your transaction.
After shopping around on the internet I have found a Aston property lawyer having made sure that they are on the HSBC conveyancing panel. Does my lawyer arrange the survey of the property?
HSBC will need an independent valuation of the property. Your lawyer will not arrange this. Usually HSBC will appoint their own surveyor to do this, and you will have to pay for it. Remember that this is a valuation for mortgage purposes and not a survey. You may wish to consider appointing your own Aston surveyor to carry out a survey or prepare a home buyers report on the property. It is up to you to satisfy yourself that the property is structurally sound before you buy it. If the survey or report reveals that building work is needed, you should tell your solicitor. You may wish to renegotiate with the seller.
Will our lawyer be raising questions about flooding as part of the conveyancing in Aston.
Flooding is a growing risk for lawyers carrying out conveyancing in Aston. Some people will acquire a house in Aston, completely expectant that at some time, it may be flooded. However, leaving to one side the physical damage, where a house is at risk of flooding, it may be difficult to obtain a mortgage, suitable insurance cover, or sell the property. Steps can be carried out as part of the conveyancing process to forewarn the buyer.
Conveyancers are not best placed to impart advice on flood risk, however there are a number of searches that can be undertaken by the purchaser or by their conveyancers which will figure out the risks in Aston. The standard information given to a buyer’s solicitor (where the Conveyancing Protocol is adopted) contains a usual inquiry of the owner to discover if the premises has suffered from flooding. If flooding has previously occurred which is not disclosed by the owner, then a buyer may issue a claim for damages resulting from an incorrect answer. The purchaser’s lawyers may also conduct an environmental search. This should disclose if there is any known flood risk. If so, further investigations will need to be made.
