We are planning to acquire a flat and require a conveyancing solicitor in Fowey who is on the HSBC conveyancing panel. Could you point me in the right direction as regards a conveyancing firm?
Our service is limited to being a directory service for firms who wish to be listed as being on the approved conveyancing panel for HSBC . We don't recommend any particular firms conducting conveyancing in Fowey.
Various internet forums that I have visited warn that are a common reason for stalling in Fowey conveyancing transactions. Is this right?
The Council of Property Search Organisations (CoPSO) released determinations of research by MoveWithUs that conveyancing searches do not figure within the most frequent causes of delays in the conveyancing process. Local searches are not likely to feature in any delay in conveyancing in Fowey.
Over the last few months I have been searching for a ground for flat up to £195,000 and found one close by in Fowey I like with a park and station in the vicinity, however it's only got 51 years unexpired on the lease. I can't really find anything else in Fowey for this price, so just wondered if I would be making a mistake purchasing a short lease?
Should you need a mortgage the remaining unexpired lease term will be a potential deal breaker. Reduce the offer by the anticipated lease extension will cost if not already taken into account. If the current proprietor has owned the property for at least twenty four months you can request that they start the process of the extension and pass it to you. An additional ninety years can be extended on to the existing lease with a zero ground rent applied. You should speak to your conveyancing solicitor concerning this matter.

Are there any specific advantages to selecting a high street lawyer in Fowey
Plenty of house movers in Fowey select a local conveyancing practitioner so that they can pop into the firm’s offices just in case they have concerns, and to sign mortgage deeds without using the post.
Some would argue that there exists a marginal edge when selecting a solicitor local to a house you are hoping to purchase, due to the familiarity of the region and possible local concerns - yet this is moot. Many conveyancers are now over the web and may be anywhere in the world.
