I hired a high street lawyer for our conveyancing in Chesham Bois recently. After carefully reading the Terms I notewe are responsible for costs even if our purchase aborts. Should I go with them or choose an on-line conveyancing brokerage advertising no move no charge conveyancing in Chesham Bois?
Generally there is a compromise along the lines that if "No Completion No Fee" is offered then the fee levels will tend to be be uplifted to cover those cases that abort. Dont forget that such deals rarely cover disbursements e.g. Chesham Bois conveyancing search charges.
We are close to exchanging contracts on the sale of our house in Chesham Bois and according to the buyers it appears that there is a risk of it being built land that was not decontaminated. Any high street Chesham Bois conveyancer would know that there is no such problem. For the life of me I don't know why the buyers used a national conveyancing outfit rather than a conveyancing solicitor in Chesham Bois. Having lived in Chesham Bois for many years we know of no issue. Is it a good idea to contact our local Authority to obtain confirmation that the buyers are looking for.
It would appear that you have a conveyancing lawyer currently acting for you. What do they say? You should 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 health insurance to cover that same ailment)
I am purchasing a new build house in Chesham Bois with the aid of help to buy. The developers refused to move on the amount so I negotiated 6k of extras instead. The sale representative told me not to tell my conveyancer about the side-deal as it will jeopardize my mortgage with the lender. Do I keep my lawyer in the dark?.
All lenders require a Disclosure of Incentives Form from the developer of any new build, converted or renovated property, It is available online from the Lenders’ Handbook page on the CML website. CML form is completed and handed to the lender's surveyor when the inspection is done.
Lenders have different policies on incentives. Some accept none at all, cash or physical, while others will accept cash incentives up to 5%.
Hard to understand why the representative of a builder would be suggesting you withold information from a solicitor when all this will be clearly visible on forms the builder has to supply to its solicitor, the buyer's solicitor and the surveyor.
I've recently found out that there is a flying freehold element on a house I have offered on last month in what was supposed to be a quick, no chain conveyancing. Chesham Bois is the location of the property. Is there any guidance you can give?
Flying freeholds in Chesham Bois are unusual but are more likely to exist in relation to terraced houses. Even where you use a solicitor outside Chesham Bois you would need to get your solicitor to go through the deeds very carefully. Your lender may require your conveyancing solicitor to take out an indemnity policy. Some of the more diligent conveyancing solicitors in Chesham Bois may determine 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 premises.
My fiance is purchasing a garden flat in Chesham Bois. He was given a quote by the solicitor connected to the estate agents totaling £1300 . It was eight years ago since I sold and bought a home and the fee was £just under five hundred pounds. Have fees really gone up that much?
We would recommend that you visit two or three local Chesham Bois conveyancing solicitors requesting estimates. It is advisable to base your decision not only on cost, but on promptness and on how comprehensive the response is.
