It has been three months following my purchase conveyancing in Bradmore took place. I have checked the Land Registry website which shows that I paid £200,000 when infact I paid £160,000. 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 property 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 Bradmore differ for new build properties?
Most buyers of new build or newly converted property in Bradmore approach us having been asked by the builder to sign contracts and commit to the purchase even before the house is finished. This is because builders in Bradmore tend to acquire 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 conveyancing solicitors 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 Bradmore or who has acted in the same development.
I am using a search engine for the term conveyancing in Bradmore it brings up many property lawyerslocally. With so much choice what is the best way to find the right solicitor for me?
The ideal method of finding a suitable conveyancer is via personal referral, so seek the guidance of colleagues and those you trust who have bought a property in Bradmore or a respected estate agent or mortgage broker. Charges for conveyancing in Bradmore vary, so it's sensible to obtain a minimum of three fee calculations from varying types of solicitors. Be sure to secure confirmation that the fees are fixed.
