Having been referred to your site we were going to appoint conveyancing solicitor in Boscastle listed by you but stumbled across alternative quotes via the web seem cheaper – how come?
There are lots of solicitors advertising theoretically looks to be very low prices. Our advice is to think long and hard as to how important this transaction is to you that you are willing to be penny wise pound foolish with regard to the quality of the legal work. Some hide fees well inside the terms and conditions. The law firms that we put forward for conveyancing in Boscastle will notdo this.
It has been five months following my purchase conveyancing in Boscastle took place. 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 premises 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 does conveyancing in Boscastle differ for new build properties?
Most buyers of new build or newly converted property in Boscastle come to us having been asked by the housebuilder to sign contracts and commit to the purchase even before the house is completed. This is because house builders in Boscastle usually buy the land, 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 used to new build conveyancing in Boscastle or who has acted in the same development.
I am looking for a ground for flat up to £245,000 and identified one close by in Boscastle I like with a park and transport links in the vicinity, the downside is that it's only got 49 years on the lease. There is not much else in Boscastle suitable, so just wondered if I would be making a grave error acquiring a short lease?
Should you require a mortgage the shortness of the lease will likely be an issue. Discount the price by the expected lease extension will cost if not already taken into account. If the current proprietor has owned the property for a minimum of twenty four months you can request that they start the process of the extension and pass it to you. You can add 90 years to the existing lease with a zero ground rent applied. You should consult your conveyancing solicitor about this.
