We have very pushy vendors who has insisted on a preliminary agreement with a down payment 10k. Are such agreements promoted for Lancashire conveyancing transactions?
There are a couple of primary concerns with executing a lock out contract (occasionally termed a no-shop agreement) is that it can distract from progressing with the conveyancing transaction itself, so unless it requires minimal or no negotiation then it could turn out to be a cause of frustration and delay. It is not particularly popular amongst Lancashire conveyancing solicitors for this reason. A supplemental issue is the extent of the remedies available - an aggrieved purchaser should not expect to obtain injunctive relief to stop the owner disposing of the property to another buyer, so the only remedy open via the contract will be the recovery of wasted charges and, in limited scenarios, the extra payment of penalties.
We are buying a property and need a conveyancing solicitor in Lancashire who is on the Nottingham approved panel. Can you recommend a local conveyancing firm?
Our service is limited to being a directory service for firms who wish to be listed as being on the approved conveyancing panel for Nottingham . We don't recommend any particular firms conducting conveyancing in Lancashire.
Should our conveyancer be making enquiries about flooding during the conveyancing in Lancashire.
Flooding is a growing risk for solicitors dealing with homes in Lancashire. There are those who buy a property in Lancashire, completely aware that at some time, it may be flooded. However, aside from the physical damage, where a property is at risk of flooding, it may be difficult to get a mortgage, suitable insurance cover, or sell the premises. There are steps that can be taken as part of the conveyancing process to forewarn the buyer.
Conveyancers are not qualified to offer advice on flood risk, however there are a number of searches that can be carried out by the purchaser or on a buyer’s behalf which will give them a better understanding of the risks in Lancashire. The conventional set of completed inquiry forms supplied to a buyer’s conveyancer (where the Conveyancing Protocol is adopted) incorporates a usual question of the seller to discover if the premises has ever been flooded. If the property has been flooded in past and is not disclosed by the vendor, then a buyer could bring a compensation claim stemming from an inaccurate response. A purchaser’s lawyers should also carry out an environmental report. This should disclose if there is any known flood risk. If so, more detailed investigations will need to be carried out.
