My wife and I are buying a house in Brownhills. It might be a silly question but how we can trust a conveyancer? At some point we will need to send our life savings into their account. What protection do we have from them run away with our money?
Be assured that all money in a Solicitors client account is 100% safe, and even if your Solicitor ran off with it, the Law Society would reimburse you fully.
My stepmother informed me that in purchasing a property in Brownhills there could be various restrictions affecting the ability to carry out external alterations to a property. Is this right?
We are aware of a number of properties in Brownhills which have some sort of restriction or requirement of consent to external changes. Part of the conveyancing in Brownhills should determine what restrictions are applicable and advising you as part of a ROT that should be sent to you.
I am being advised by my solicitor that breach of easement insurance is necessary on my purchase. What is the level of cover for Brownhills conveyancing?
The appropriate level of breach of easement indemnity insurance should be dictated by who who your lender is. It would differ for example between Santander and The Mortgage Works. Conveyancing lawyers as opposed to borrowers take out such insurances.
Despite weeks of looking the Title Certificate and documents to my home are lost. The conveyancers who conducted the conveyancing in Brownhills 10 years ago have long since closed. What are my options?
Nowadays there are duplicates made of almost everything, and your conveyancer should be aware exactly where to find all the relevant paperwork so you may purchase or dispose of your property without a hitch. Where copies can’t be located, your lawyer can put in place insurance or indemnities against possible claims on the premises.
I have been on the look out for a leasehold apartment up to £245,000 and identified one near me in Brownhills I like with amenity areas and station in the vicinity, however it's only got 51 years unexpired on the lease. I can't really find anything else in Brownhills in this price bracket, so just wondered if I would be making a mistake buying a lease with such few years left?
Should you require a home loan that many years will likely be an issue. Reduce the offer by the anticipated lease extension will cost if it has not already been discounted. If the current proprietor has owned the property for at least twenty four months you could request that they commence the lease extension formalities and then assign it to you. You can add 90 years to the existing lease and have £0 ground rent by law. You should speak to your conveyancing lawyer regarding this matter.
We're novice buyers - had an offer accepted, yet the property agent has warned us that the seller will only move forward if we instruct the agent's preferred conveyancers as they need a ‘quick sale’. Our preferred option is to instruct a family conveyancer with experience of conveyancing in Brownhills
We suspect that the seller is not behind this ultimatum. Should the vendor desire ‘a quick sale', taking such a hostile approach to a motivated purchaser is not the way to achieve this. Contact the owners directly and make the point that (a)you are motivated buyers (b)you are excited to move forward, with finances arranged © you have nothing to sell (d) you intend to proceed fast (e)however you intend to instruct your preferred Brownhills conveyancing solicitors - rather thanthe ones that will give the estate agent a introducer fee or meet his conveyancing figures demanded by HQ.
I have today placed an offer on a leasehold flat in Brownhills and the broker that we are using recommended his lawyer. She quoted £1000 including VAT and 3rd party costs. Does this sound expensive?
