Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Harrold

At what point can the exchange of contracts take place for domestic conveyancing in Harrold and do I need to attend the solicitors branch?

If you are local to our conveyancing solicitors in Harrold you are invited in to sign the paperwork. That being said, the firms we recommend offer a national conveyancing service and provide as equally comprehensive and professional a job for you when communicating with you by post or email. The executing of the contract is not when everything is set in stone. Signing on the dotted line is necessary for the conveyancer to officially exchange when the time is right, which is ordinarily shortly after signing. The procedure is is usually a five minute process, although where an extended "chain" is in the mix, since the process requires the relevant party's solicitor (not necessarily a conveyancing solicitor in Harrold)to be in the office at the appropriate time.

Do I choose a Licenced Conveyancer or Solicitor for conveyancing in Harrold?

Two types of professional can conduct conveyancing in Harrold namely CLC regulated conveyancers or solicitors. Both professionals provide conveyancing services that you need to complete the disposal or purchase of property.

I am helping my niece sell her property in Harrold. Will the solicitor order the energy performance certificate or do I organise this?

After the demise of Home Information Packs, energy performance certificates became a required part of moving house. An energy performance certificate should be commissioned in advance of the property being placed on the market. It is not a task that conveyancers normally organise. Where you are using a Harrold conveyancing practitioner they may be able to arrange energy assessments due to their contacts with reputable Harrold energy assessors

The formalities of my purchase has taken place for my property in Harrold. Conveyancing was of an acceptable standard but I feel I should register my dissatisfaction about the lender. How does one go about formally complaining?

Almost all lenders have complaints procedures. Your first port of call should be one of the lender’s branches or the Customer Care Department at head office. Ordinarily complaints to a lender are sorted out effectively and efficiently. If you feel the matter is not resolved you can write to Financial Ombudsman Service who will take matters further.

    Where there is an Undertaking being granted there is the risk of forfeiture of the Headlease subject to relief if one or more of the Underlessees are willing to accept the original Head Lessee’s obligations as otherwise relief will be denied to the Underlessees. The only alternatives are the Head Lessor agreeing not to forfeit the Headlease or the Head Lessee guaranteeing to the Underlessees that it will not be in breach of the Headlease. Where service of notices and proceedings can be at the property demised please confirm that this can be amended to include simultaneous services at the Lessees’ solicitors’ offices where the Lessee from time to time is not resident in the UK - such solicitors may be varied by notice in writing to the Landlord from time to time but otherwise will be as previously specified. Will control of the Management Company (if any) be handed over to purchasers on completion of the last sale or earlier? The Vendor must covenant to keep unsold units in good repair until long leases are granted therefore. Please confirm the Lease plans are architect prepared.

I've recently found out that there is a flying freehold element on a house I have offered on a fortnight ago in what was supposed to be a straight forward, chain free conveyancing. Harrold is the location of the property. Can you shed any light on this issue?

Flying freeholds in Harrold are rare but are more likely to exist in relation to terraced houses. Even though you don't necessarily need a conveyancing solicitor in Harrold you would need to get your solicitor to go through the deeds diligently. Your bank may require your conveyancing solicitor to take out an indemnity policy. Some of the more diligent conveyancing solicitors in Harrold may ascertain that this is not enough and that the deeds be re-written to give you the most up to date legal protection. If so, the next door neighbour also had to sign up to the revised deeds.It is possible that your lender will not accept the situation so the sooner you find out the better. You should also check with your insurance broker as to whether they will insure a flying freehold premises.

Am I better off to appoint a Harrold conveyancing practitioner in close proximity to the house I am hoping to buy? We have a good friend who can execute the legal formalities but they are based approximately 350kilometers drive away.

The benefit of a high street Harrold conveyancing practice is that you can visit the firm to execute documents, deliver your ID and pester them where appropriate. They will also have local intelligence which is a plus. That being said it's more important to get someone that will pull out all the stops for you. If if people you trust used your friend and the majority were content that must outweigh using an unfamiliar Harrold conveyancing lawyer solely due to them being based in the area.
