My friend's sister is a conveyancing practitioner. I suspect that I can be offered friends and family rates for conveyancing, but if not, what level of fees should I be expecting for conveyancing in Lanchester?
You should compare pricing. Make use of our search tool on this page. Whilst amounts seem to vary but the service one can expect are distinct between solicitors as is true with most professions.
My conveyancer has identified a defect with the lease for the flat we are purchasing in Lanchester. The seller’s lawyers have suggested defective title insurance as a workaround. We are content with insurance and will pay for it. Our lawyer says that he must check that the lender is happy with this solution. Who is the client here, us or the bank?
Regardless of the fact that you have a mortgage offer from the bank does not mean to say that the property will meet their provisions for the purposes of a mortgage. Your lawyer has to ensure that the lease has to comply with the UK Finance Lenders’ Handbook provisions. You and the lender are the client. These conveyancing instructions must be adhered to.
We're in Lanchester, First timers buying with a mortgage (lender is Aldermore , and our solicitor is on the Aldermore conveyancing panel). How long should the conveyancing process take?
The fact that your lawyer is on the Aldermore conveyancing panel is a help. It would almost certainly delay matters if they were not. However, no conveyancer should guarantee a timeframe for your conveyancing, due to third parties outside of your control such as delays caused by lenders,conveyancing search providers or by the other side’s solicitors. The time taken is often determined by the number of parties in a chain.
How can the Landlord & Tenant Act 1954 impact my business premises in Lanchester and how can your lawyers assist?
The particular law that you refer to affords a safeguard to business tenants, giving them the a statutory right to apply to court for a renewal tenancy and remain in occupation when the lease comes to an end. There are limited grounds where a landlord can refrain from granting a lease renewal and the rules are complicated. We are happy to direct you to commercial conveyancing practices who use the act to your advantage and help with commercial conveyancing in Lanchester
We're FTB’s - had an offer accepted, but the property agent advised that the vendor will only proceed if we use the agent's preferred lawyers as they want a ‘quick sale’. We would rather use a high street conveyancer who is accustomed to conveyancing in Lanchester
We suspect that the owner is unaware of this requirement. Should the vendor desire ‘a quick sale', turning down a genuine purchaser is is going to put the whole deal at risk. Speak to the vendors direct and make the point that (a)you are keen to buy (b)you are ready to progress, with finances in place © you are chain free (d) you intend to proceed fast (e)but you will continue to use your preferred Lanchester conveyancing firm - rather thanthose that will provide the estate agent a introducer fee or achieve conveyancing thresholds pre-set by HQ.
