Me and my partner are purchasing a house in Forty Hill. It might be a silly question but how we can trust a conveyancer? On completion day we have to put our life savings into their account. What protection do we have from them run away with our monies?
Be assured that all money in a Solicitors client account is 100% safe, and even if your Solicitor ran off with it, the Law Society would reimburse you fully.
I am the sole recipient of my late mum's will with all property in now in my sole name, including the house in Forty Hill. Conveyancing formalities meant that the Land Registry date was in November. I plan to dispose of the property. I understand that there is a CML six month 'rule', meaning my proprietorship could be considered the same way as if I'd bought the property in November. Will no one buy the property for half a year?
The CML handbook instructs solicitors to: "report to us immediately if the owner or registered proprietor has been registered for less than six months." By the strict wording you could be caught by that. Some mortgage companies would take a practical view as this provision primarily exists to identify the purchase and immediately sell or the wholesaling and assigning of properties.
How can we tell if a Forty Hill conveyancing solicitor on the Skipton panel is any good?
When it comes to conveyancing in Forty Hill obtaining recommendations is a sensible starting point. Before you go ahead, check if they offer a no sale no fee offer. Also, you often get what you pay for - a firm which quotes more, will often provide a better service than one which is cheap as chips. We would always suggest that you speak with the lawyer carrying out your transaction.
We are planning on selling our property in Forty Hill and the buyers lawyers are claiming that there is a possibility that the property was constructed land that was not decontaminated. A local conveyancer would know this is not the case. For the life of me I don't know why the buyers are using a web based conveyancing firm as opposed to a conveyancing solicitor in Forty Hill. We have lived in Forty Hill for six years we know that this is a non issue. Should we contact our local Authority to obtain confirmation that there is no issue.
It would appear that you have a conveyancing lawyer currently acting for you. What do they say? You should enquire of 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 health insurance to cover that same sickness)
