I opted for a Kendal based lawyer for our conveyancing in Kendal yesterday. After carefully reading the terms of engagement I seeI am responsible for costs even where the conveyance does not complete.

It is usually a trade off in that if "No Completion No Fee" is available then the conveyancing charges will generally be more expensive to offset the conveyances that abort. Please beware that such arrangements rarely cover expenses such your Kendal conveyancing search charges.

My lawyer has uncovered a a legal deficiency with the lease for the flat we are purchasing in Kendal. The seller’s lawyers have put forward title insurance as a workaround. We are happy with insurance and will cover the costs. Our conveyancing practitioner has advised that he must check that the lender is happy with this solution. Are we the client or is the lender?

Notwithstanding that you have a mortgage offer from the lender does not mean to say that the property will meet their requirements for the purposes of a mortgage.

Do commercial conveyancing searches disclose proposed roadworks that could affect a commercial property in Kendal?

Many commercial conveyancing solicitors in Kendal will execute a SiteSolutions Highways report as it dramatically cuts the time that conveyancers invest in sourcing accurate data on highways that impact buildings and development assets in Kendal. The report sets out definitive data on the adoption status of roads, footpaths and verges, as well as the implication of traffic schemes and the rights of way surrounding a commercial development sites in Kendal.

For each commercial conveyancing transaction in Kendal it is crucial to investigate the adoption status of roads surrounding a site. The absence of identifying developments where adoption procedures have not been dealt with adequately can result in delays to Kendal commercial conveyancing deals as well as pose a risk to future intentions for the site.

How does conveyancing in Kendal differ for new build properties?

Most buyers of new build or newly converted property in Kendal come to us having been asked by the housebuilder to sign contracts and commit to the purchase even before the property is constructed. This is because builders in Kendal tend to buy the land, plan the estate and want to get the plots sold off as they are building the properties. Buyers, therefore, will have to exchange contracts without actually seeing the house they are buying. To reduce the chances of losing the property, buyers should instruct conveyancers as soon as the property is reserved and mortgage applications should be submitted quickly. Due to the fact that it could be several months and even years between exchange of contracts and completion, the mortgage offer may need to be extended. It would be wise to use a lawyer who specialises in new build conveyancing especially if they are used to new build conveyancing in Kendal or who has acted in the same development.
