Do I choose a Licenced Conveyancer or Solicitor for conveyancing in Holsworthy?
Two types of professional can perform conveyancing in Holsworthy namely CLC regulated conveyancers or solicitors. The two can handle conveyancing services that you need to complete the sale or acquisition of property. They are both duty bound to carry out Holsworthy conveyancing to the same quality and guidelines so you can be safe in the knowledge that your conveyancing will be professionally conducted and that the requirements and steps should be appropriately adhered to.
Can I be sure that the Holsworthy conveyancing solicitor on the Clydesdale panel is any good?
When it comes to conveyancing in Holsworthy obtaining recommendations is a sensible start. Before you go ahead, check if they offer a no sale no fee offer. Also, you often get what you pay for - a firm which quotes more, will often provide a better service than one which is cheap as chips. We would always advocate that you speak with the lawyer conducting your conveyancing.
I currently have a mortgage with Clydesdale for my property in Holsworthy. Conveyancing has been completed some time ago. If I am intending to rent out the flat and do not currently have a buy-to-let mortgage do I need to remortgage to a buy-to-let mortgage or inform Clydesdale?
Your original mortgage agreement with Clydesdale will provide that you need their approval in advance of renting your property as this is likely to be a breach of Clydesdale’s mortgage conditions. In many cases banks or building societies will allow you to rent out your former home without needing to switch to a buy-to-let mortgage but some lenders will add a surcharge to your mortgage rate to reflect the higher risk. You should contact Clydesdale directly. You need not do this via a Clydesdale conveyancing panel firm.
four months have gone by following my purchase conveyancing in Holsworthy concluded. I have checked the Land Registry site which shows that I paid £150,000 when infact I paid £180,000. Why the discrepancy?
The price paid figure is taken from the application to register the purchase. It is the figure included in the Transfer (the legal deed which transfers the residence from one person to the other) and referred to as the 'consideration' or purchase price. You can report an error in the price paid figure using the LR online form. In most cases errors result from typos so at first glance the figure. Do report it so they can double check and advise.
