As someone unfamiliar with conveyancing in Henbury what’s your top tip you can impart concerning the legal transfer of property in Henbury
You may not hear this from too many lawyers but conveyancing in Henbury and elsewhere in Bristol is an adversarial process. In other words, when it comes to conveyancing there is an abundance of opportunity for confrontation between you and other parties involved in the house moving process. For example, the vendor, selling agent and even potentially a bank. Selecting a lawyer for your conveyancing in Henbury is a critical decision as your conveyancer is your adviser, and is the SOLE party in the process whose responsibility is to act in your best interests and to keep you safe.
On occasion a potential adversary may try and convince you that it is in your interests to do things their way. As an example, the selling agent may claim to be helping by claiming that your lawyer is slow. Or your mortgage broker may advise you to do something that is contrary to your conveyancers guidance. You should always trust your lawyer above all other parties in the conveyancing process.
Me and my brother own a renovated Victorian house in Henbury. Conveyancing solicitor represented me and Coventry Building Society. I did a free Land Registry search last week and there are two entries: one for freehold, the second leasehold under the matching property. Is it worth asking Coventry Building Society to clarify?
You need to assess the Freehold register you have again and check the Charges Register for mention of a lease. The best way to be sure that you are also the registered owner of the leasehold and freehold title as well is to check (£3). It is not completely unheard of in Henbury and other areas of the country and poses no real issues for owners other than when they mortgage they have to account for both freehold and leasehold interests when dealing with purchasers. You can also check the position with your conveyancing solicitor who conducted the work.

At this site receive an accurate costs illustration via a Solicitor or Licensed Conveyancer that appreciates the issues of your conveyancing in Henbury.

A large number of agents and online brokers 'recommend' the firm that pays the most kickback, as opposed to the best value conveyancing in Henbury
My husband and I are FTB’s - agreed a price, yet the property agent advised that the owners will only proceed if we instruct their preferred lawyers as they want a ‘quick sale’. We would rather use a high street solicitor who is familiar with conveyancing in Henbury
We suspect that the owner is not behind this request. Should the owner require ‘a quick sale', turning down a motivated purchaser is is going to put the whole deal at risk. Speak to the owners direct and make the point that (a)you are genuine buyers (b)you are ready to go, with finances arranged © you are unencumbered (d) you intend to proceed fast (e)however you will continue to appoint your preferred Henbury conveyancing lawyers - rather thanthose that will provide the estate agent a commission or hit his conveyancing figures demanded by corporate headquarters.
