Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Halstead

I instructed a high street firm for my conveyancing in Halstead last week. After carefully reading the fine print I notewe are liable for charges even where the transaction does not complete. Would I be best advised to instruct an internet solicitor practice who offer no move no charge conveyancing in Halstead?

It is usually a trade off in that if "No Completion No Fee" is available then the fee levels will tend to be be more expensive to neutralise those cases that do not proceed. Do bear in mind that such offerings generally do not cover expenditure for instance Halstead conveyancing search charges.

Do I need to visit the offices of the solicitor to execute the legal charge? If so, I will appoint a lawyer who conducts conveyancing in Halstead so that I can attend their offices when needed.

Most conveyancing panel lawyers for banks conduct their work via the post, e-mail or over the phone. This enables them to undertake the conveyancing transaction no matter where you live in the country. However you can see if you have the option of visiting the offices of your conveyancing lawyer if needed.

We are due to move home in July. Does my conveyancing solicitor communicate with the removal company on the day of completion. Incidentally, can you recommend a removal company in Halstead. Conveyancing firm was chosen before I stumbled across this website.

On the day of completion you will need to pick up the keys from your property agent but this can only take place once the sellers conveyancers advise the agent that they have the completion monies and the keys can be handed over. Subsequently you will need to advise the removal men that you are ready to move in. We are not in a position to recommend a particular removal company but can assist you in choosing a conveyancing in Halstead or a solicitor that specialises in conveyancing in Halstead.

I had a mortgage agreed in principle with Barclays. Halstead conveyancing lawyers have been instructed. How long does it take for Barclays to forward the offer to the lawyer?

There is no definitive answer here. Have Barclays done the survey? Have you informed Barclays as to your lawyers' details and checked that your lawyers are on the Barclays conveyancing panel? Sometimes it can take as long as six weeks for a mortgage offer to be issued.

My wife and I are at the point of viewing apartments in Halstead and I am now considering a potential offer. Is it too early to have a solicitor in place? I will be getting a mortgage with Nationwide.

You should start obtaining conveyancing quotes from solicitors ASAP. After you have chosen your lawyer and once your offer is accepted you can instruct them to work for you and pass their contact information on to the estate agent. Given that you are taking out a mortgage with Nationwide, ask your prospective lawyers if they are on the Nationwide conveyancing panel otherwise they can't do the mortgage legal work.

A relative advised me that if I am buying in Halstead I should ask my conveyancer to perform a Neighbourhood, Planning and Local Amenity Search. Can you explain what the purpose of this search is?

This is a search is usually included in the estimate for your Halstead conveyancing searches. It is not a small report of more than thirty pages, listing and detailing important information about Halstead around the property and the people living there. It includes an Aerial Photograph, Planning Applications, Land Use, Mobile Phone Masts, Rights of Way, the Halstead Housing Market, Council Tax Banding, the type of People living in the area, the dominant type of Housing, the Average Property Price, Crime details, Halstead Education with plans and statistics, Local Amenities and other useful information regarding Halstead.

I have been on the look out for a flat up to £195,000 and identified one round the corner in Halstead I like with a park and station in the vicinity, the downside is that it's only got 52 years unexpired on the lease. I can't really find anything else in Halstead suitable, so just wondered if I would be making a grave error purchasing a lease with such few years left?

If you need a home loan the remaining unexpired lease term may be problematic. Discount the offer by the expected lease extension will cost if not already taken into account. If the existing proprietor has owned the property for a minimum of 2 years you may request that they start the process of the extension and pass it to you. You can add 90 years to the existing lease term with a zero ground rent applied. You should speak to your conveyancing solicitor concerning this.
