If you had a top tip for choosing a conveyancing solicitor in Buxton what would it be?

It would be unwise to be swayed by the lowest Buxton conveyancing quote. You really do get what you’re paying for when it comes to conveyancing solicitors. A cheap quote may mean that the conveyancing solicitor is handling a lot of jobs at one time and you won’t get the quality of service and the attention that you need. It is, however, wise to use a conveyancer who has a fixed fee on a no sale, no fee basis. This way, you know exactly what you’ll have to pay in ahead of the deal.

I just acquired a house at auction in Buxton. Conveyancing is needed. What is next?

Now that you have legally bound yourself to purchase you will need to hire the services of a conveyancing practitioner as a matter of priority as you are faced with a tight a fixed date to complete the transaction. An auction property will ordinarily have a bespoke legal set of papers. This will likely include evidence of title and search results. In the case of leasehold premises the auction papers should provide a copy of the lease, management information and a sellers leasehold information form and associated conveyancing paperwork pertinent to leasehold premises. You need to give this to the lawyer instructed by you ASAP. You also need to ensure that that you have the requisite funding in place to complete on the date specified in the contract.

I have a mortgage with Co-operative for my property in Buxton. Conveyancing was finalised 12 months ago. Should I wish to rent out the flat and do not currently have a buy-to-let mortgage do I need to remortgage to a buy-to-let mortgage or inform Co-operative?

Your original mortgage agreement with Co-operative will provide that you need their approval before renting your property as this is likely to be a breach of Co-operative’s mortgage conditions. It may be that Co-operative will permit you to let out your former home without needing to switch to a buy-to-let mortgage but some lenders will add a surcharge to your mortgage rate to reflect the higher risk. You should contact Co-operative directly. You need not do this via a Co-operative conveyancing panel lawyer.

Yesterday I discovered that there is a flying freehold element on a house I have offered on a fortnight ago in what was supposed to be a simple, no chain conveyancing. Buxton is the location of the property. Is there any guidance you can give?

Flying freeholds in Buxton are rare but are more likely to exist in relation to terraced houses. Even where you use a solicitor outside Buxton you must be sure that your lawyer goes through the deeds very carefully. Your bank may require your conveyancing solicitor to take out an indemnity policy. Some of the more diligent conveyancing solicitors in Buxton may ascertain that this is not enough and that the deeds be re-written to give you the most up to date legal protection. If so, the next door neighbour also had to sign up to the revised deeds.It is possible that your lender will not accept the situation so the sooner you find out the better. You should also check with your insurance broker as to whether they will insure a flying freehold property.
