As someone not used to conveyancing in Blyth what is your top tip you can impart concerning the house moving process in Blyth
Not many law firms or advisers will tell you this but conveyancing in Blyth or throughout England and Wales is an adversarial process. Put another way, when it comes to conveyancing there is plenty of room for confrontation between you and other parties involved in the transaction. E.g., the vendor, estate agent and sometimes the bank. Appointing a law firm for your conveyancing in Blyth should not be taken lightly as your conveyancer is your adviser, and is the ONLY party in the process whose interest is to look after your legal interests and to keep you safe.
We are witnessing a definite emergence of a "blame" culture- someone must be blamed for the process taking so long. You your first instinct should be to trust your conveyancer above all other parties when it comes to the legal transfer of property.
A friend advised me that where I am purchasing in Blyth I should carry out a Neighbourhood, Planning and Local Amenity Search. What does it cover?
This is a search is sometimes included in the estimate for your Blyth conveyancing searches. It is a large report of more than thirty pages, listing and setting out important information about Blyth around the property and the people living there. It includes an Aerial Photograph, Planning Applications, Land Use, Mobile Phone Masts, Rights of Way, the Blyth Housing Market, Council Tax Banding, the demographics of People living in the area, the dominant type of Housing, the Average Property Price, Crime statistics, Blyth Education with plans and statistics, Local Amenities and other useful information concerning Blyth.
Me and my brother own a 4 bedroom Edwardian house in Blyth. Conveyancing solicitor acted for me and Norwich and Peterborough Building Society. I happened to do a free search for it on the Land Registry database and I saw a couple of entries: the first freehold, another for leasehold with the exact same address. Is it worth asking Norwich and Peterborough Building Society to clarify?
You should read the Freehold register you have again and check the Charges Register as there may be mention of a lease. The best way to be sure that you are also the registered proprietor of the leasehold and freehold title as well is to check (£3). It is not completely unheard of in Blyth and other areas of the country and poses no real issues for owners other than when they buy they have to account for both freehold and leasehold interests when dealing with buyers. You can also question the position with the conveyancing practitioner who carried out the work.
We're new on the property ladder - agreed a price, but the agent has warned us that the vendor will only go ahead if we use their recommended conveyancers as they want a ‘quick sale’. My instinct tells me that we should use a family solicitor with experience of conveyancing in Blyth
We suspect that the owner is unaware of this requirement. If they require ‘a quick sale', alienating a serious buyer is going to damage their objectives. Speak to the owners direct and make the point that (a)you are keen to buy (b)you are excited to move forward, with finances in place © you are chain free (d) you intend to proceed fast (e)however you will continue to instruct your preferred Blyth conveyancing solicitors - not the ones that will provide their estate agent a referral fee or achieve conveyancing targets pre-set by senior management.
