Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Clare

It has taken forever and a day but a mortgage offer from Santander for the refinancing of my 3 bedroom flat is due within the next few days. Are you able to propose a cheap conveyancing solicitor in Clare?

You are on the wrong site if you are in need of the cheapest conveyancing in Clare. We can offer you excellent value conveyancing but our intention is not to work with the cheapest lawyers. Resist the temptation to appoint brokers enticing you with £100 conveyancing in Clare. At best, in being led by low cost conveyancing, you will receive what you pay for and at worst it will result in you being stung for extras and still not get the service you were hoping for.

How does conveyancing in Clare differ for newly converted properties?

Most buyers of new build residence in Clare approach us having been asked by the developer to sign contracts and commit to the purchase even before the premises is completed. This is because house builders in Clare typically buy the land, plan the estate and want to get the plots sold off as they are building the properties. Buyers, therefore, will have to exchange contracts without actually seeing the house they are buying. To reduce the chances of losing the property, buyers should instruct conveyancers as soon as the property is reserved and mortgage applications should be submitted quickly. Due to the fact that it could be several months and even years between exchange of contracts and completion, the mortgage offer may need to be extended. It would be wise to use a lawyer who specialises in new build conveyancing especially if they are used to new build conveyancing in Clare or who has acted in the same development.

I've recently found out that there is a flying freehold element on a property I put an offer in a fortnight ago in what should have been a straight forward, chain free conveyancing. Clare is the location of the property. Can you shed any light on this issue?

Flying freeholds in Clare are unusual but are more likely to exist in relation to terraced houses. Even though you don't necessarily need a conveyancing solicitor in Clare you must be sure that your lawyer goes through the deeds diligently. Your lender may require your conveyancing solicitor to take out an indemnity policy. Some of the more diligent conveyancing solicitors in Clare 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.
