The loan agreement from HSBC for the remortgage of my 4 bedroom flat is coming any day now. Could you suggest a cheap conveyancing solicitor in Cambridgeshire?
This site is not designed to aid those in pursuit of the cheapest conveyancing solicitors in Cambridgeshire. Our intention is to offer excellent value conveyancing but we do not aim to advertise as being the cheapest. Do not be fooled by companies offering the bait of £100 conveyancing in Cambridgeshire. At best, in being led by low cost conveyancing, you will receive what you pay for and at worst you will end up with a hefty uplift in additional fees and still not end up with the service required.
In what way does my ID and proof of funds have anything to do with my conveyancing in Cambridgeshire? What am I being asked for?
In order to comply with Money Laundering Regulations any Cambridgeshire conveyancing firm will require proof of identity in all conveyancing transactions. This is normally dealt with by provision of a passport and an original bank statement or utility account evidencing your correct address.
Under Money Laundering Regulations, property lawyers are obliged by law to validate not only the ID of conveyancing clients but also the source of the money that they receive in respect of any matter. An unwillingness to disclose this may lead to your lawyer terminating their retainer with you, as clearly this will cause a conflict between the set Regulations and a refusal to disclose.
Your property lawyers will have an obligation to inform the appropriate authorities should they consider that any amounts received by them may contravene the Money Laundering Regulations.
Just had an offer accepted on a new build apartment in Cambridgeshire. Conveyancing is a frightening process at the best of times but I have never purchased a new build flat before. Can you give me some examples of some of the questions asked in new build legal work.
Here is a sample of a selection of leasehold new build enquiries that you can expect your new-build leasehold conveyancing in Cambridgeshire
If there are lifts in the building, please confirm that the owners of flats on the ground and basement floors will not be required to contribute towards the cost of maintenance and renewal. Please supply evidence that the form of Lease proposed has been approved by the Land Registry. The Lease must contain a provision on behalf of the Vendor to pay the service charges in respect of unoccupied units in order to ensure that all services can be provided. The Landlord must covenant to assume the management if the Management Company goes into liquidation or otherwise defaults in running the management scheme.

My boyfriend is buying a ground floor flat in Cambridgeshire. He was given a quote by the conveyancing practitioner recommended by the estate agents and it came to £1300 . It was fifteen years ago since I sold and bought a home and the fee was £495. Have charges really increased to that extent?
What does the conveyancing estimate include? Is it just for the legal fees, or what you will be paying in total (for example Cambridgeshire searches, land registry fees, etc)
