Various web forums that I have frequented warn that are the number one cause of hinderance in Blakedown house deals. Is there any truth in this?
The Council of Property Search Organisations (CoPSO) released conclusions of a review by MoveWithUs that conveyancing searches do not figure amongst the top 10 causes of delays in the conveyancing process. Local searches are not likely to feature in any slowing down conveyancing in Blakedown.
It has been five months following my purchase conveyancing in Blakedown completed. I have checked the Land Registry site which shows that I paid £150,000 when infact I paid £215,000. 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.
How do I locate a Blakedown solicitor on the Alliance & Leicester conveyancing panel? I am a keen cyclist and am willing to travel upto 20kilometers to meet the lawyer.

My husband and I are new to the buying process - agreed a price, but the selling agent told us that the owners will only proceed if we instruct their recommended lawyers as they are insisting on a ‘quick sale’. We would rather use a family solicitor who is familiar with conveyancing in Blakedown
It is highly unlikely the vendors are behind this. If they want ‘a quick sale', turning down a motivated purchaser is likely to cause more damage than good. Speak to the owners direct and explain that (a)you are keen to buy (b)you are ready to go, with finances arranged © you do not need to sell (d) you wish to move quickly (e)however you are going to instruct your own,trusted Blakedown conveyancing firm - not the ones that will earn the negotiator at the agency a kickback or hit his conveyancing figures set by HQ.
We are thinking of instructing an online lawyer rather than a Blakedown conveyancing firm. Any advice?
Numerous benefits exist in being able to attend a local Blakedown conveyancing solicitor such as
- signing papers same day
- having one on one explanations of issues that you need help with
- the ability to raise concerns if things need to addressed
When analysing estimates, look out for hidden extras. Most decent Blakedown high street solicitors give an all-inclusive price. Many online companies seem to offer discounted fees, yet have burried 'extras' in the fine print.
