I am downsizing from our home in Bridgwater and the buyers lawyers are claiming that there is a possibility that the property was built land that was not decontaminated. A high street Bridgwater conveyancer would know that there is no such problem. For the life of me I don't know why the buyers are using a web based conveyancing firm rather than a conveyancing solicitor in Bridgwater. Having lived in Bridgwater for six years we know of no issue. Is it a good idea to contact our local Authority to seek confirmation need.
It would appear that you have a conveyancing lawyer currently acting for you. What do they say? You must enquire of your lawyer before you do anything. It is very possible that once the local authority has been informed of a potential issue it cannot be insured against (a bit like being diagnosed with a serious illness and then taking out life insurance to cover that same ailment)
I have todaydiscovered that Stirling Law have been shut down. They carried out my conveyancing in Bridgwater for a purchase of a freehold house 18 months ago. How can I check that my home is not still registered in the name of the previous owner?
The easiest method to check if the property is registered to you, you can make a search of the land registry (£3.00). You can either do this yourself or ask a law firm to do this for you. If you are not registered you can seek help from one of a number of Bridgwater conveyancing specialists.
How does conveyancing in Bridgwater differ for new build properties?
Most buyers of new build residence in Bridgwater contact us having been asked by the builder to exchange contracts and commit to the purchase even before the residence is constructed. This is because builders in Bridgwater typically buy the site, 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 accustomed to new build conveyancing in Bridgwater or who has acted in the same development.

Why is it not possible to complete our conveyancing in Bridgwater on Easter Monday?
This is due to the fact that on completion the sale price needs to pass between the banks of the buyer and seller's property lawyer and currently this can only take place on a business day. So you can't complete on a weekend either.
