IfI was to acquire a straightforward propertyin Griffithstown for cash and dispense with a survey and no local authority searches how much would I expect to have to pay for conveyancing in Griffithstown?
Any savings you would make would be isolated to the Griffithstown conveyancing searches. A solicitor still be obliged to do everything else - money laundering, communicating with the vendors conveyancer, SDLT submission, register the property etc. A marginal saving might be made by not needing to register a charge however it won't be significant.
When it comes to lenders such as Skipton, do Griffithstown conveyancers face a yearly amount to be on the list of approved solicitors?
We are unaware of any mortgage company fees to be on their panel, although some do charge an administration fee to deal with the processing of the conveyancing panel application.
I have a mortgage with Barclays for my property in Griffithstown. Conveyancing was finalised some time ago. In the event that I decide to rent out my property and do not currently have a buy-to-let mortgage do I need to remortgage to a buy-to-let mortgage or inform Barclays?
Barclays must be informed of your intention in advance of renting your property as this is likely to be a breach of Barclays’s mortgage conditions. It may be that Barclays will allow you to rent out your former home without needing to switch to a buy-to-let mortgage but some lenders will add a surcharge to your mortgage rate to reflect the higher risk. You should contact Barclays directly. You need not do this via a Barclays conveyancing panel solicitor.
TSB have agreed my mortgage in principle, my bid on a property in Griffithstown has been accepted, what are the next steps?
Your property agent will need to know who your solicitors are (ensure that the lawyers are on the lender’s panel). Call up TSB or your financial adviser and finalise any appropriate paperwork. TSB will instruct a valuer who will get in contact with the selling agent or vendor to arrange a time for the valuation to happen. Once conducted (assuming no problems) it takes approximately a fortnight to receive the mortgage offer. TSB will issue the offer to you and your solicitors. The legal work will then take it’s course according the nature and complexity of the conveyancing in Griffithstown.
We are intent on selling our property in Griffithstown and according to the buyers it appears that there is a possibility that the property was built on contaminated land. Any high street Griffithstown lawyer would know that there is no such problem. For the life of me I don't know why the purchasers used a factory type conveyancing practice as opposed to a conveyancing solicitor in Griffithstown. We have lived in Griffithstown for 5 years we know that this is a non issue. Should we contact our local Authority to seek clarification that the buyers are looking for.
It would appear that you have a conveyancing firm currently acting for you. Are they able to advise? You must 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 life insurance to cover that same sickness)
I was pointed in your direction by two or three local selling agents in Griffithstown to get a quote from a solicitor on your site. Is there a financial advantage for Estate Agents to offer your site rather than alternative conveyancing organisations?
We don’t give any financial incentive for pointing buyers and sellers our way. We thought it would be too underhand to pay a commission as members of the public would think, ‘Why is the agent getting a kickback? Why am I not receiving any benefit too?’ So we decided to step away from that.
I am using a search engine for the term on line conveyancing in Griffithstown it brings up many property lawyersin the vicinity. How do I determine which is the right conveyancing solicitor for purchase transaction?
