Please could you vouch for a Birmingham Midshires accepted Hawkshead conveyancing conveyancer that can complete within 10 days? Would it be better to use a local Hawkshead solicitor or an internet comparison site?
We would be happy to suggest some excellent Hawkshead conveyancing firms. You can also walk up the main road in Hawkshead. Visit two or three law practices and ask to see a conveyancing solicitor for a fee estimate. Discuss your requirements together with the reasons and get a commitment on your deadline. Appoint the one that appears most efficient.
I am close to exchanging contracts on the sale of our home in Hawkshead and according to the buyers it appears that there is a risk of it being constructed on contaminated land. A local conveyancer would know this is not the case. It does beg the question why the purchasers used an online conveyancing practice rather than a conveyancing solicitor in Hawkshead. Having lived in Hawkshead for six years we know of no issue. Should we get in touch with our local Authority to get clarification that the buyers are looking for.
It sounds as though you may have a conveyancing lawyer already. Are they able to advise? 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 health insurance to cover that same sickness)
It has been 2 months following my purchase conveyancing in Hawkshead completed. I have checked the Land Registry website which shows that I paid £175,000 when infact I paid £180,000. 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.
I opted to have a survey done on a property in Hawkshead prior to instructing conveyancers. I have been advised that there is a flying freehold aspect to the property. My surveyor has said that some banks tend refuse to grant a loan on a flying freehold property.
It depends who your proposed lender is. HSBC has different instructions for example to Nationwide. Should you wish to call us we can look into this further with the appropriate mortgage company. If you lender is happy to lend one our lawyers can help as they are used to dealing with flying freeholds in Hawkshead. Conveyancing will be smoother if you use a solicitor in Hawkshead especially if they regularly deal with such properties in Hawkshead.
