Where you are retaining lawyers for conveyancing in Hayle your lawyer will request that you place them with funds to cover the search fees.

I happen to be the sole recipient of my late grandmother’s will and I have everything in my name alone, including the my former home in Hayle. The Hayle property was put into my name in August. I plan to dispose of the house. I understand that there is a Mortgage Lenders 6 month 'rule', which means that my proprietorship may be regarded the same way as if I'd bought the property in August. Do I have to wait 6 months to sell?

The CML handbook obliges conveyancers to: "report to us immediately if the owner or registered proprietor has been registered for less than six months." By the strict wording you might be impacted by that. How practical a view banks take of it, depend on the lender as this requirement principally exists to capture subsales or the wholesaling and assigning of properties.

My wife and I are in the throws of viewing houses in Hayle and I am now considering a potential offer. Is it wise to have a conveyancing practitioner on ‘stand by’? I am planning to take a home loan with Co-operative.

You should start requesting conveyancing estimates from solicitors ASAP. Once you decide who you want to use 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 seeking a mortgage with Co-operative, make sure you remember to check that your lawyer is on the Co-operative conveyancing panel.

I've digested plenty of mortgage guides, I note that it is considered advisable to get your house surveyed prior to buying it. When I asked my local Hayle solicitor - who is on the Clydesdale conveyancing panel - on this she said they don't do this and I need to contract an independent surveyor. is that correct?

Clydesdale will need an independent valuation of the property. Your lawyer will not arrange this. Usually Clydesdale will appoint their own surveyor to do this, and you will have to pay for it. Remember that this is a valuation for mortgage purposes and not a survey. You may wish to consider appointing your own Hayle surveyor to carry out a survey or prepare a home buyers report on the property. It is up to you to satisfy yourself that the property is structurally sound before you buy it. If the survey or report reveals that building work is needed, you should tell your solicitor. You may wish to renegotiate with the seller.

My brother has recommend that I use his conveyancers in Hayle. Do I follow his recommendation?

Much as we are happy to recommend a Hayle conveyancing lawyer the ideal way to find a conveyancing lawyer is to seek guidance from friends or relatives who have previously instructed the solicitor that you are considering.

Why can't I complete my conveyancing in Hayle on Easter Monday?

Because on completion the sale price will be transferred electronically between the banks of the buyer and owner’s conveyancer and currently this can only happen on a working day. So you can't complete on a saturday or sunday either.
