The lawyer who dealt with my last purchase has sent a quote for £1400 for leasehold conveyancing in Heywood. I am selling a Victorian house for £300,000. Is this too much? Is it above the norm for conveyancing in Heywood?
The quote is fractionally on the high side. Where you are prepared to expend time contrasting quotes you might get the conveyancing a bit cheaper by say a hundred pounds. That being said, you mightlive to regret opting for an an untested lawyer. Don't forget to be sure the solicitor can act for your mortgage company.

My wife and I are downsizing from our home in Heywood and the buyers lawyers are claiming that there is a possibility that the property was constructed land that was not decontaminated. A local lawyer would know that there is no such problem. For the life of me I don't know why the purchasers used an internet conveyancing outfit rather than a conveyancing solicitor in Heywood. Having lived in Heywood for many years we know that this is a non issue. Should we contact our local Authority to obtain confirmation that the buyers are looking for.
It would appear that you have a conveyancing lawyer already. What do they say? You need to enquire of 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 life insurance to cover that same sickness)
Despite weeks of looking the Title Certificate and documents to my home are lost. The conveyancers who handled the conveyancing in Heywood 4 years ago are no longer around. What do I do?
These day there are copies made of almost everything, and your conveyancer will be aware precisely where to locate all the suitable paperwork so you may buy or sell your property without a hitch. If copies can’t be located, your solicitor can arrange cover in the form of insurance or indemnities against future claims on your property.
Just had an offer accepted on a new build flat in Heywood. Conveyancing is daunting at the best of times but I have never purchased a new build flat before. What sort of enquires would be asked in new build legal work.
Here is a sample of a few leasehold new build questions that you should expect your new-build leasehold conveyancing in Heywood
Will the freehold then be transferred for a nominal consideration (not exceeding £100) to the Management Company? Investor purchasers must be able to freely grant unsecured tenancies at market rents without requiring any consents. Will control of the Management Company (if any) be handed over to purchasers on completion of the last sale or earlier? If there are lifts in the building, please confirm that the owners of flats on the ground and basement floors will not be required to contribute towards the cost of maintenance and renewal.
I opted to have a survey completed on a property in Heywood before instructing conveyancers. I have been told that there is a flying freehold aspect to the property. The surveyor has said that some lenders will refuse to issue a mortgage on this type of property.
