Is it possible for conveyancing in Carbis Bay to be concluded in under two weeks?
First, If the seller is applying a tight deadline for your conveyancing we would recommend that your conveyancer is familiar with the location as they will benefit local contacts and know-how. It is possible that they may have handled otherproperties in the same neighbourhood. You would be best advised to use a Carbis Bay conveyancing solicitor. Second, check that the conveyancing firm is on the lender panel. It is believed that 18% of Carbis Bay conveyancing transactions are held up or jeopardised after finding out that a buyer’s solicitor was not on their banks panel. In many cases this discovery resulted in the legal transfer of property being delayed by almost 21 days. It is claimed that this issue impacts approximately 100,000 home sales every year. Many Carbis Bay conveyancing firms can not act for certain lenders so do check as early as possible.
Should conveyancers request money up-front when it comes to conveyancing in Carbis Bay?
Where you are retaining lawyers for conveyancing in Carbis Bay your solicitor will ask you place them with monies to cover the search fees. This will be the total of the cost of the conveyancing searches. When the deposit is as part of the sale price then this will be required shortly in advance of exchange of contracts. The final balance that is needed will be payable shortly before completion.
I am selling our home in Carbis Bay and the buyers lawyers are claiming that there is a risk of it being built land that was not decontaminated. Any local lawyer would know this is not the case. It does beg the question why the buyers are using a web based conveyancing outfit as opposed to a conveyancing solicitor in Carbis Bay. Having lived in Carbis Bay for many years we know of no issue. Is it a good idea to get in touch with our local Authority to obtain confirmation that the buyers are looking for.
It would appear that you have a conveyancing solicitor 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 illness)
Yesterday I discovered that there is a flying freehold issue on a house I have offered on a fortnight ago in what should have been a simple, chain free conveyancing. Carbis Bay is where the house is located. Is there any advice you can impart?
Flying freeholds in Carbis Bay are not the norm but are more likely to exist in relation to terraced houses. Even where you use a solicitor outside Carbis Bay you must be sure that your lawyer goes through the deeds thoroughly. Your bank may require your conveyancing solicitor to take out an indemnity policy. Some of the more diligent conveyancing solicitors in Carbis Bay may decide 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 residence.
