As someone not used to conveyancing in Chatteris what’s the number one tip you can impart for the legal transfer of property in Chatteris

Not many law firms or advisers will tell you this but conveyancing in Chatteris and elsewhere in Cambridgeshire is often a confrontational experience. Put another way, when it comes to conveyancing there is plenty of opportunity for confrontation between you and others involved in the ownership transfer. For instance, the vendor, estate agent and sometimes a mortgage company. Appointing a lawyer for your conveyancing in Chatteris should not be taken lightly as your conveyancer is your adviser, and is the ONLY person in the legal process whose role it is to look after your legal interests and to protect you.

On occasion a third party with a vested interest will attempt to convince you that you should follow their advice. For instance, the property agent may claim to be helping by claiming that your lawyer is dragging his heels. Or your financial adviser may tell you to do take action that is against your lawyers guidance. You should always trust your lawyer above all other parties in the conveyancing process.

I am selling my apartment. I had a double glazing fitted in July 2010, but did not receive a FENSA certificate or Building Regulation Certificate. My buyer's lender, Aldermore are being a right pain. The Chatteris solicitor who is on the Aldermore conveyancing panel is recommending indemnity insurance as a solution but Aldermore are insisting on a building regulation certificate. Why do Aldermore have a conveyancing panel if they don't accept advice from them?

It is probably the case that Aldermore have referred the matter to their valuer. The reason why Aldermore may not want to accept indemnity insurance is because it does not give them any reassurance that the double glazing was correctly and safely installed. The indemnity insurance merely protects against enforcement action which is very unlikely anyway.

I have todaybecome aware that Action Conveyancing have been shut down. They carried out my conveyancing in Chatteris for a purchase of a leasehold apartment 9 months ago. How can I be sure that my home is in my name in the name of the previous owner?

The easiest method to see if the premises is in your name, you can make a search of the land registry (£3.00). You can either do this yourself or ask a law firm to do this for you. If you are not registered you can seek help from one of a number of Chatteris conveyancing specialists.

I was told by my mortgage company that their panel lawyers operate no sale no charge basis for conveyancing in Chatteris. I had a purchase abort and now the conveyancers have invoiced for search fees! They say the fees are seperate!

Chatteris conveyancing search fees are separate expenses not solicitors fees as these are paid to a third party.
