When can the exchange of contracts occur in purchase conveyancing in High Peak and am I required to be at the solicitors office?

Where you are in close proximity to our conveyancing solicitors in High Peak you are invited in to sign contracts. That being said, the law practices we recommend offer a national conveyancing service and give as equally detailed and professional a job for you when communicating with you electronically. The signing of the property agreement is not the important part. Signing on the dotted line is necessary for the conveyancer to address the formalities when the time is right, which will usually be very shortly after signing. The procedure is is usually a five minute process, although where a long "chain" is in play, since the process requires the relevant party's solicitor (not necessarily a conveyancing solicitor in High Peak)to be in the office at the appropriate time.

Should my solicitor be raising enquiries about flooding during the conveyancing in High Peak.

The risk of flooding is if increasing concern for solicitors specialising in conveyancing in High Peak. There are those who buy a house in High Peak, fully expectant that at some time, it may suffer from flooding. However, aside from the physical destruction, where a property is at risk of flooding, it may be difficult to obtain a mortgage, satisfactory insurance cover, or sell the property. There are steps that can be taken as part of the conveyancing process to forewarn the purchaser.

Solicitors are not qualified to offer advice on flood risk, however there are a various searches that may be undertaken by the buyer or on a buyer’s behalf which can give them a better understanding of the risks in High Peak. The standard property information forms sent to a buyer’s lawyer (where the solicitors are adopting what is known as the Conveyancing Protocol) contains a standard question of the owner to determine whether the premises has historically flooded. In the event that flooding has previously occurred which is not disclosed by the vendor, then a buyer could bring a compensation claim stemming from an misleading response. The buyer’s solicitors should also order an environmental report. This will reveal whether there is a recorded flood risk. If so, additional inquiries will need to be conducted.
