As someone not used to conveyancing in Choppington what’s your top tip you can give me concerning the ownership transfer in Choppington
Not many law firms shout this from the rooftops but conveyancing in Choppington and elsewhere in England and Wales is often a confrontational process. In other words, when it comes to conveyancing there is lots of room for confrontation between you and other parties involved in the legal transfer of property. For instance, the vendor, estate agent and sometimes the bank. Appointing a law firm for your conveyancing in Choppington should not be taken lightly as your conveyancer is your adviser, and is the SOLE party in the process whose responsibility is to protect your best interests and to keep you safe.
We are witnessing a definite increase of a "blame" culture- someone must be at fault for the process taking so long. You must always trust your lawyer above all other parties when it comes to the legal assignment of property.
I have just started marketing my basement flat in Choppington. Conveyancing solicitors are to be appointed soon, however I have recently received a quarterly service charge demand – what should I do?
The sensible thing to do is discharge the service charge as you normally would as all ground rent and maintenance payments will be allotted as part of the financial calculations for completion monies, so you will be reimbursed by the buyer for the period running from after the completion date to the subsequent invoice date. Most management companies will not acknowledge the buyer unless the service charges have been paid and are up to date, so it is important for both buyer and seller for the seller to show that they are up to date. This will smooth the conveyancing process.
