Me and my partner are about to complete on the purchase of a house in Knighton but as a result of wreckage from the recent storms I have managed to agree compensation from the owner in the sum of £3k taking the form of a reduction in the price. I had intended this to be addressed as part of the conveyancing process but TSB are not allowing this. Why were they informed?
The solicitor being on a TSB conveyancing panel is required to inform TSB of any changes to the purchase price. If you prohibit your conveyancing practitioner to disclose the reduction to TSB then they would have to discontinue acting for you. In addition, TSB and you would have to appoint a new lawyer for your conveyancing in Knighton.
Do lawyers request money up-front when it comes to conveyancing in Knighton?
If you are buying a property in Knighton your lawyer will request that you put them with monies to cover the search fees. Ordinarily this is called for to cover the fees of the Local Authority Search. When the deposit is as part of the total price then this should be needed immediately in advance of exchange of contracts. The closing balance that is due should be sent to your lawyer shortly before completion.
I have justbeen informed that Wolstenholmes have closed. They conducted my conveyancing in Knighton for a purchase of a leasehold flat 12 months ago. How can I check that the property is not still registered in the name of the previous owner?
The easiest way to check if the property is registered to you, you can make a search of the land registry (£3.00). You can either do this yourself or ask a law firm to do this for you. If you are not registered you can seek help from one of a number of Knighton conveyancing specialists.
