I am in the market for a reasonably priced conveyancer. Should I go for for a national conveyancer rather than a local Chorley conveyancing solicitor?
In the main conveyancing solicitors in your location will have good connections with your local authority, which could help with your Chorley conveyancing searches that your conveyancer will require on your transaction. It can only assist if they have strong rapport with the Local Land Registry Office your area Chorley, other conveyancers in the location and Chorley Estate Agents.
We have rather brash vendors who has recommended a exclusivity agreement with a non-refundable deposit 6,000. Is it wise to enter into such agreements?
There are a couple of primary drawbacks with executing a lock out agreement (occasionally known as a no-shop agreement) is that it takes away the focus from making progress with the conveyancing transaction itself, so unless it requires limited or no negotiation then it may transpire to be unhelpful. It is not strongly advocated by Chorley conveyancing solicitors as a result. A supplemental concern is the extent of the remedies available - an aggrieved buyer is very unlikely to win an injunctive ruling by a court to stop the vendor disposing of the property to an alternative purchaser, so the only remedy open via the contract will be the reimbursement of wasted costs and, in limited scenarios, the extra payment of damages.
At what point will exchange of contracts occur in residential conveyancing in Chorley and do I need to attend the conveyancers branch?
Where you are near to one of the conveyancing solicitors in Chorley you are invited in to sign documents. However, the firms we recommend supply a countrywide conveyancing service and provide just as diligent and professional a job for you when communicating with you digitally. The signing of the property agreement is not the point of no return. Signing on the dotted line simply enables the conveyancer to officially exchange at the appropriate time, which will usually be very shortly after signing. The procedure is is usually a five minute process, although where a long "chain" is in the mix, since the process requires the relevant party's solicitor (not necessarily a conveyancing solicitor in Chorley)to be in the office available at the end of the phone to exchange contracts.
