The owners have rather assertive vendors who has suggested a preliminary contract with a down payment two thousand pounds. Is it wise to enter into such agreements?
This form of agreement is unusual in Heathfield, conveyancers are often found to direct clients away from them as they detract from focusing on the main conveyancing focus and if you end up losing your deposit then the lawyer is left exposed. Secondly, there is no certainty that just because the seller has entered into a lock out agreement they will complete the sale with you. They may be tempted to break the agreement if they receive a large enough financial inducement to do so because a wronged claimant with the benefit of a exclusivitycontract will still be legally obliged to show losses as a consequence of the breach and these may not amount to the extra amount that the owner may secure by breaking the contract, however morally unworthy it undoubtedly is.
Do I need to pop into the offices of the solicitor to execute the legal charge? If so, I will appoint a lawyer who conducts conveyancing in Heathfield so that I can pop in to their offices if necessary.
Nowadays conveyancing panel lawyers for mortgage companies conduct all of the communications through the post, e-mail or over the phone. This means that they can undertake the conveyancing transaction regardless of where you live in the country. However you can see if you can still book an appointment to visit conveyancing lawyer if just in case this is required.
Will my solicitor be asking questions about flooding as part of the conveyancing in Heathfield.
The risk of flooding is if increasing concern for solicitors dealing with homes in Heathfield. Some people will purchase a house in Heathfield, completely aware that at some time, it may suffer from flooding. However, aside from the physical damage, where a house is at risk of flooding, it may be difficult to obtain a mortgage, satisfactory insurance cover, or sell the property. Steps can be carried out during the course of a house purchase to forewarn the buyer.
Lawyers are not qualified to give advice on flood risk, however there are a numerous checks that can be carried out by the purchaser or on a buyer’s behalf which should figure out the risks in Heathfield. The conventional set of completed inquiry forms supplied to a purchaser’s lawyer (where the Conveyancing Protocol is adopted) includes a usual inquiry of the vendor to find out whether the property has historically flooded. If flooding has previously occurred and is not notified by the vendor, then a purchaser may commence a claim for damages as a result of such an inaccurate answer. The buyer’s solicitors will also commission an environmental report. This will indicate if there is a recorded flood risk. If so, further inquiries will need to be carried out.

I have been advised by numerous property agents in Heathfield to find a solicitor on your site. Is there a financial advantage for Estate Agents to recommend your services over alternative conveyancing organisations?
We refuse to give any commission for pointing buyers and sellers to this site. We found it would be just too difficult a fee because home movers will think, ‘Why is the agent getting a kickback? Why am I not getting any benefit too?’ We would prefer to grow our business on genuine recommendations.
