Why do I have to pay up front when it comes to conveyancing in Avonmouth?
If you are buying a property in Avonmouth your solicitor will request that you place them with funds to cover the search fees. This will be the total of the cost of the conveyancing searches. If any deposit is as part of the purchase price then this will be required immediately prior to contracts are exchanged. The final balance that is due should be sent to your lawyer a few days ahead of the day of completion.
Can you clarify what the consequences are if my solicitor is suspended from the Skipton Conveyancing panel ahead of completing my conveyancing in Avonmouth?
First, this is very unlikely to happen. In most cases even where a law firm is removed off of a panel the lender would allow the completion to go ahead as the lender would appreciate the difficulties that they would place you in if you have to instruct a new solicitor days before completion. In a worst case scenario where the lender insists that you instruct a new firm then it is possible for a very good lawyer to expedite the conveyancing albeit that you may pay a significant premium for this. The analogous situation is where a buyer instructs a lawyer, exchanges contracts and the law firm is shut down by a regulator such as the SRA. Again, in this situation you can find lawyers who can troubleshoot their way to bring the conveyancing to a satisfactory conclusion - albeit for a fee.
How does conveyancing in Avonmouth differ for newly converted properties?
Most buyers of new build property in Avonmouth come to us having been asked by the housebuilder to exchange contracts and commit to the purchase even before the house is completed. This is because builders in Avonmouth tend to buy 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 accustomed to new build conveyancing in Avonmouth or who has acted in the same development.
