Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Helston

What does my ID and proof of funds have anything to do with my conveyancing in Helston? Why is this being asked of me?

Anti-terror and anti-money-laundering laws require solicitors and licensed conveyancers to verify the identification documents of the person or body they are dealing with before they can accept their conveyancing instruction. The Terms and Conditions that you are required to sign should stipulate this. Your lawyer also has obligations to obtain certain documents in accordance with the CML Lenders Handbook requirements last updated on 1st December 2014. If you refuse to supply identification documents, your conveyancer will not be able to take you on as a client.

I moved into my home on 8 February and the transaction details is yet to be registered. Need I be worried? My conveyancing solicitor in Helston expressed confidence that it would be formalised in a couple of weeks. Are titles in Helston uniquely lengthy to register?

As far as conveyancing in Helston is concerned, registration is no quicker or slower than anywhere else in the country. Rather than based on location, timeframes can vary subject to who lodges the application, whether there are errors and if the Land registry need to notify any other parties. Currently roughly three quarters of submission are completed in less than three weeks but occasionally there can be extensive hold-ups. Registration occurs after the purchaser has moved in to the property so 'speed' is not typically an essential issue but if there is a degree of urgency associated with the registration then you or your conveyancer could communicate with the Registry to express the reasoning for the application to be prioritised.

What does commercial conveyancing in Helston cover?

Non domestic conveyancing in Helston covers a wide array of advice, supplied by qualified solicitors, relating to business property. By way of example, this type of conveyancing can cover the sale or purchase of freehold business premises or, more commonly, the transfer of existing business tenancies or the drafting of new leasing arrangements. Commercial conveyancing solicitors can also offer advice on the sale of business assets, commercial loans and the termination of tenancies.

Developers have put forward a conveyancing practitioner and I've received an estimate from them. They are nearly £250 less expensive than my own Helston lawyer. Should I use them?

Builders normally have lists of property lawyers who expedite matters and who know the seller’s contract and lawyer. As many developers offer an incentive to choose their approved conveyancing practitioner for this reason, any increased fees can be avoided and a builder will not put forward a conveyancing factory and run the risk of having the conveyancing delayed when they need an exchange within a tight time frame. A counter-argument for not opting for the suggested lawyer is that they may prove unwilling to 'push' your interests for fear of alienating the sellers. If you worry that this may be the case you should stick with your high street Helston conveyancing practitioner.
