We selected a Kelvedon based solicitor for our conveyancing in Kelvedon last week. Reviewing the Terms I seeI am on the hook for charges even where the transaction does not complete. Should I ditch them and use a web based lawyer promoting no-sale-no-fee conveyancing in Kelvedon?
It is usually ‘give and take’ in that if "No Completion No Fee" is available then the fee levels will tend to be be more expensive to neutralise the conveyances that fail to complete. You should be mindful that such deals tend not to protect you from expenditure such as Kelvedon conveyancing search costs.
My relative advised me that where I am purchasing in Kelvedon I should carry out a Neighbourhood, Planning and Local Amenity Search. Can you explain what the purpose of this search is?
This is a search is occasionally included in the estimate for your Kelvedon conveyancing searches. It is a large document of more than thirty pages, listing and detailing significant information about Kelvedon around the property and the people living there. It incorporates an Aerial Photograph, Planning Applications, Land Use, Mobile Phone Masts, Rights of Way, the local Housing Market, Council Tax Banding, the type of People living in the area, the dominant type of Housing, the Average House Prices, Crime statistics, Local Education with plans and statistics, Local Amenities and other useful data about Kelvedon.
3 months have gone by since my purchase conveyancing in Kelvedon completed. 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.
I opted to have a survey done on a property in Kelvedon prior to appointing conveyancers. I have been told that there is a flying freehold element to the house. My surveyor advised that some lenders will refuse to give a loan on a flying freehold property.
It varies from the lender to lender. Santander has different requirements for example to Birmingham Midshires. If you e-mail us we can check via the relevant bank. If you lender is happy to lend one our lawyers can help as they are used to dealing with flying freeholds in Kelvedon. Conveyancing may be slightly more expensive based on your lender's requirements.
We are 14 days into a leasehold purchase having been recommend to a firm by the high street agent to do our conveyancing in Kelvedon. I am am extremely disappointed with the quality of service. Can you help me find new lawyers?
They would need to be really poor in order to consider replacing them. Has the loan offer been generated? If so you must advise them of the new contact details and get the loan are re-sent. Your solicitor ideally should be on the mortgage company approved list to avoid added costs and complications. That should be your starting point.
