As someone clueless as to the Binfield conveyancing process what is the number one tip you can impart for the legal transfer of property in Binfield
You may not hear this from too many lawyers but conveyancing in Binfield and elsewhere in Berkshire is an adversarial process. In other words, when it comes to conveyancing there exists lots of room for conflict between you and other parties involved in the legal transfer of property. For example, the vendor, selling agent and sometimes your bank. Choosing a solicitor for your conveyancing in Binfield is a critical decision as your conveyancer is your adviser, and is the ONE party in the legal process whose interest is to look after your legal interests and to protect you.
On occasion a third party with a vested interest will attempt to sway you that it is in your interests to do things their way. For instance, the estate agent may claim to be assisting by claiming that your solicitor is wrong. Or your financial adviser may advise you to do take action that is against your conveyancers guidance. You should always trust your lawyer above all other parties in the conveyancing process.

Will the freehold then be transferred for a nominal consideration (not exceeding £100) to the Management Company? Where there is an Undertaking being granted there is the risk of forfeiture of the Headlease subject to relief if one or more of the Underlessees are willing to accept the original Head Lessee’s obligations as otherwise relief will be denied to the Underlessees. The only alternatives are the Head Lessor agreeing not to forfeit the Headlease or the Head Lessee guaranteeing to the Underlessees that it will not be in breach of the Headlease.

The benefit of a local Binfield conveyancing practice is that you can pop in to execute documents, deliver your identification documents and apply pressure on them where appropriate. They will also have local insight which is a plus. However it's more important to get someone that will pull out all the stops for you. If other friends have used your friend and the majority were impressed that must trump using an unknown Binfield conveyancing solicitor solely due to them being Binfield based.
