My friend's uncle is a conveyancing practitioner. I am hopeful that I will receive preferential rates for conveyancing, but if not, what level of fees would I typically be looking at for conveyancing in Great Yarmouth?
It’s wise to request multiple conveyancing estimates. Do use our comparison tool on this site. Whilst quotes seem to be different but service levels do are distinct between solicitors as is true with most professions.
I am selling our house in Great Yarmouth and the buyers lawyers are claiming that there is a possibility that the property was constructed on contaminated land. A high street Great Yarmouth conveyancer would know that there is no such problem. For the life of me I don't know why the buyers instructed a nationwide conveyancing outfit as opposed to a conveyancing solicitor in Great Yarmouth. We have lived in Great Yarmouth for many years we know that this is a non issue. Is it a good idea to contact our local Authority to seek confirmation that there is no issue.
It sounds as though you may have a conveyancing lawyer currently acting for you. What do they say? 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 ailment)
It has been three months following my purchase conveyancing in Great Yarmouth concluded. I have checked the Land Registry website which shows that I paid £175,000 when infact I paid £160,000. Why the discrepancy?
The price paid figure is taken from the application to register the purchase. It is the figure included in the Transfer (the legal deed which transfers the residence from one person to the other) and referred to as the 'consideration' or purchase price. You can report an error in the price paid figure using the LR online form. In most cases errors result from typos so at first glance the figure. Do report it so they can double check and advise.
Over the last few months I have been searching for a flat up to £195,000 and found one round the corner in Great Yarmouth I like with amenity areas and railway links in the vicinity, the downside is that it only has 52 years unexpired on the lease. I can't really find anything else in Great Yarmouth for this price, so just wondered if I would be making a mistake buying a short lease?
If you require a mortgage that many years will be a potential deal breaker. Discount the offer by the expected lease extension will cost if it has not already been discounted. If the existing proprietor has owned the property for at least 2 years you could ask them to start the process of the extension and pass it to you. You can add 90 years to the existing lease term and have £0 ground rent by law. You should consult your conveyancing lawyer concerning this matter.
