After shopping around on the internet I have found a Chulmleigh conveyancing practitioner having made sure that they are on the HSBC conveyancing panel. Does my lawyer arrange the survey of the property?
HSBC will need an independent valuation of the property. Your lawyer will not arrange this. Usually HSBC will appoint their own surveyor to do this, and you will have to pay for it. Remember that this is a valuation for mortgage purposes and not a survey. You may wish to consider appointing your own Chulmleigh surveyor to carry out a survey or prepare a home buyers report on the property. It is up to you to satisfy yourself that the property is structurally sound before you buy it. If the survey or report reveals that building work is needed, you should tell your solicitor. You may wish to renegotiate with the seller.

However, leaving to one side the physical damage, where a house is at risk of flooding, it may be difficult to obtain a mortgage, satisfactory insurance cover, or dispose of the property. Steps can be carried out as part of the conveyancing process to forewarn the purchaser.
Lawyers are not best placed to impart advice on flood risk, however there are a various checks that can be undertaken by the buyer or by their solicitors which can figure out the risks in Chulmleigh.

If flooding has previously occurred and is not revealed by the vendor, then a buyer may issue a compensation claim as a result of such an misleading reply. A purchaser’s conveyancers may also commission an enviro search. This should indicate whether there is any known flood risk. If so, more detailed inquiries should be conducted.
Yesterday I discovered that there is a flying freehold element on a property I put an offer in two weeks back in what should have been a simple, no chain conveyancing. Chulmleigh is where the house is located. Can you offer any advice?
Flying freeholds in Chulmleigh are rare but are more likely to exist in relation to terraced houses. Even where you use a solicitor outside Chulmleigh you would need to get your solicitor to go through the deeds very carefully. Your mortgage company may require your conveyancing solicitor to take out an indemnity policy. Some of the more diligent conveyancing solicitors in Chulmleigh 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 property.
Should I choose a Chulmleigh conveyancing solicitor based in the location that I am purchasing? We have a good friend who can execute the legal work however his firm is located 400kilometers drive away.
The primary upside of using a high street Chulmleigh conveyancing firm is that you can pop in to sign paperwork, deliver your ID and pester them if necessary. Having local Chulmleigh know how is a benefit. However it's more important to get someone that will pull out all the stops for you. If if people you trust used your friend and in the main were content that should surpass using an unknown Chulmleigh conveyancing solicitor just because they are Chulmleigh based.
