Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Buxton

We note that you have a post code search directory listing firms on the Lloyds conveyancing panel. Do firms pay you a commission if I instruct them for our own conveyancing in Buxton?

We are a listing service only for law firms wishing to communicate if they are on the Lloyds conveyancing panel or other lender panels. We do not charge referral fees to any conveyancer that you subsequently appoint for your conveyancing in Buxton.

We expect to receive a OIP from TSB this week so we can work out what to offer on a property we like as otherwise we are dependent on web based calculators (which aren't taking into account credit checks etc). Do TSB recommend any Buxton solicitors on the TSB conveyancing panel, or is it better to find our own lawyer?

You will need to appoint Buxton solicitors independently although you'll need to choose one on the TSB conveyancing panel. The solicitor represents both you and TSB through the process.

About to purchase flat in Buxton. I have received an online quote from a licenced conveyancer, which states: "There will be no charge for dealing with the Building Society if you are obtaining a mortgage". I take this to mean that there will be no additional fee if the solicitor is on the Santander conveyancing panel. I wanted to make sure it means there will be no additional fees for dealing with the mortgage.

They are simply saying that the cost for acting for the lender is included in the fee being quoted. It is worth you checking that the Buxton conveyancing practitioner is on the Santander conveyancing panel.

I've read lots of mortgage guides, I note that it is considered advisable to get your house surveyed prior to buying it. When I asked my local Buxton solicitor - who is on the Clydesdale conveyancing panel - on this she said they don't do this and I need to contract an independent surveyor. Is that normal?

Clydesdale will need an independent valuation of the property. Your lawyer will not arrange this. Usually Clydesdale will appoint their own surveyor to do this, and you will have to pay for it. Remember that this is a valuation for mortgage purposes and not a survey. You may wish to consider appointing your own Buxton surveyor to carry out a survey or prepare a home buyers report on the property. It is up to you to satisfy yourself that the property is structurally sound before you buy it. If the survey or report reveals that building work is needed, you should tell your solicitor. You may wish to renegotiate with the seller.

How does conveyancing in Buxton differ for new build properties?

Most buyers of new build premises in Buxton come to us having been asked by the developer to sign contracts and commit to the purchase even before the property is constructed. This is because new home sellers in Buxton usually buy the real estate, 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 accustomed to new build conveyancing in Buxton or who has acted in the same development.

Given that I will soon part with hundreds of thousands of pounds on a terraced house in Buxton I would like to talk to a solicitor concerning thehome move prior to appointing the firm. Can this be arranged?

Absolutely - it is our preference to talk to you we do not take any clients on without you first talking to the lawyer due to be carrying out your conveyancing in Buxton.There is no ‘factory style conveyancing’ - every client is an important individual, not a case number. The solicitors that we put you in touch with believe that the fees you are calculated and presented to you for residential conveyancing in Buxton should be the amount on the final invoice that you are charged.

Am I best advised to appoint a Buxton conveyancing solicitor based in the vicinity that I am purchasing? I have an old university friend who can carry out the legal formalities however they are based 200kilometers away.

The primary upside of using a local Buxton conveyancing practice is that you can drop in to sign documents, present your identification documents and apply pressure on them where appropriate. They will also have local intelligence which is a bonus. However nothing is more important than finding someone that will do a good and efficient job. If other friends have used your friend and on the whole were happy that should outweigh using an unknown Buxton conveyancing solicitor just because they are round the corner.
