We are buying a property and the solicitor has referenced Chancel Repair to which the property could be obligated to contribute to given it’s proximity to the area of such a church. He has mentioned insurance. Is this strictly warranted for conveyancing in Cornwall
Unless a previous acquisition of the property took place after 12 October 2013 you could expect lawyers carrying out conveyancing in Cornwall to continue to propose a a chancel search and or insurance against a claim.
Just bought a terraced house in Cornwall , how long should it take for the Land Registry to deal with the formalities evidencing the transfer to my name? My Cornwall conveyancing solicitor has been very slow, so I want to be sure that my name is recorded.
As far as conveyancing in Cornwall registration is no faster or slower than anywhere else in the country. Rather than based on location, timescales can adjust depending on the party submitting the application, whether it is in order and if the Land registry communicate with any other persons or bodies. As of today roughly 80% of submission are fully dealt with in less than three weeks but some can be subject to extensive hold-ups. Registration occurs once the purchaser is living at the property thus an expedited registration is not usually an essential issue but where there is a degree of urgency associated with the registration then you or your conveyancer should communicate with the Registry to express the reasoning for an expedited registration.
Just had an offer accepted on a new build flat in Cornwall. Conveyancing is necessary evil at the best of times but I have never purchased a new build flat before. What sort of enquires would be asked in new build conveyancing.
Set out below is a sample of a few leasehold new build enquiries that you can expect your new-build leasehold conveyancing in Cornwall
There must be mutual enforceability of lessee’s covenants. Where service of notices and proceedings can be at the property demised please confirm that this can be amended to include simultaneous services at the Lessees’ solicitors’ offices where the Lessee from time to time is not resident in the UK - such solicitors may be varied by notice in writing to the Landlord from time to time but otherwise will be as previously specified. Has the Lease plan been approved by the Land Registry and if not when will they be lodged for this purpose? If there are lifts in the building, please confirm that the owners of flats on the ground and basement floors will not be required to contribute towards the cost of maintenance and renewal.
I was advised by a few property agents in Cornwall to get a quote from a solicitor using your seach tool. What’s the financial incentive for Estate Agents to recommend your services ahead of a competitor’s?
We refuse to make any referral fee for sending work our way. We thought it would be too underhand a fee as a client could think, ‘Why is the agent getting a kickback? Why aren’t I receiving any benefit too?’ So we decided to step away from that.
