Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Datchet

At what point can the exchange of contracts take place for domestic conveyancing in Datchet and do I need to attend the solicitors branch?

Where you are local to one of the conveyancing solicitors in Datchet you are welcome to attend to sign contracts. That being said, the firms we work with provide countrywide coverage for conveyancing and provide just as detailed and professional a job for you when communicating with you digitally. The signing of the contract is not the point of no return. A signed contract is necessary for the firm to address the formalities at the suitable time, which is ordinarily shortly after signing. The procedure is is usually a five minute process, although where a lengthy "chain" is in play, since the process requires the relevant party's solicitor (not necessarily a conveyancing solicitor in Datchet)to be in the office available at the end of the phone to exchange contracts.

In reading consumer advice sites for a high-quality solicitor in Datchet, many post that I should use a CQS assured solicitor. What is CQS?

The Law Society's Conveyancing Quality Scheme is the recognised kitemark for legal experts in home moving process, trusted by some of the UK's major banks. In 2011-12 the Conveyancing Quality Scheme was officially recognised by the Building Societies Association (BSA). CQS is not a scheme offered by the Society for Licensed Conveyancers. Datchet is one of the numerous areas of the UK where there are Accredited lawyers.

We are downsizing from our property in Datchet and according to the buyers it appears that there is a possibility that the property was constructed on contaminated land. Any local conveyancer would know that there is no such problem. It does beg the question why the purchasers used a national conveyancing firm as opposed to a conveyancing solicitor in Datchet. We have lived in Datchet for six years we know of no issue. Is it a good idea to get in touch with our local Authority to obtain confirmation need.

It would appear that you have a conveyancing lawyer already. Are they able to advise? You must check with your lawyer before you do anything. It is very possible that once the local authority has been informed of a potential issue it cannot be insured against (a bit like being diagnosed with a serious illness and then taking out life insurance to cover that same illness)

How does conveyancing in Datchet differ for new build properties?

Most buyers of new build or newly converted property in Datchet approach us having been asked by the seller to sign contracts and commit to the purchase even before the residence is ready to move into. This is because developers in Datchet usually purchase the real estate, 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 conveyancing solicitors 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 accustomed to new build conveyancing in Datchet or who has acted in the same development.
