Why is leasehold purchase conveyancing in Clowne costs more?
In summary, leasehold conveyancing in Clowne and Derbyshire usually necessitates more work compared to freehold transactions. This includes analysing the lease terms, liaising with the landlord about the service of required notices, securing up-to-date service charge and management information, obtaining the landlord’s consents and reviewing management accounts. The obligations on both the landlord and the tenant in the lease need to be studied by the buyer’s conveyancing team and read from beginning to end – no matter how many different owners have owned the lease since it was first entered into.

However, no solicitor should guarantee a timeframe for your conveyancing, due to third parties outside of your control such as delays caused by lenders,conveyancing search providers or by the other side’s solicitors. The time taken is often determined by the number of parties in a chain.

I was recommended by a few selling agents in Clowne to locate a conveyancer using your seach tool. Is there a financial incentive for Estate Agents to promote your site over and above a competitor’s?
We don’t give any financial incentive for directing people in our direction. We thought it would be too underhand to pay a commission because a client could think, ‘How come the agent getting a kickback? Why am I not getting any benefit too?’ So we decided to step away from that.
I'm purchasing a apartment in Clowne. I have found my conveyancer's company on the Law Society's list, but I can't see my conveyancer's name on the list. Should I be concerned?
Not all staff in the law firm must be listed by the regulator. As long there is a manager qualified to 'oversee' the work, the actual day-to-day activity can be conducted by unqualified staff.
