Having been referred to your site we were going to use a conveyancing solicitor in Langford endorsed using your comparison tool but have come across alternative estimates via the web appear cheaper – why is this?

There are plenty of conveyancing companies offering at first sight what seems to be very low prices. You should give due consideration about how important this transaction is to you that you are willing to take 'cheap' risks concerning the quality of the legal work. Many of them list a low fee to grab your attention but bury supplemental fees in the small print..

The owners have very pushy vendors who has suggested a exclusivity agreement with a deposit 10k. Is it wise to enter into such agreements?

This type of contract isn't frequently used in Langford, conveyancers are not keen on them as they detract from the primary objective, namely conveyancing and if you end up losing your deposit then the solicitor is left exposed. Secondly, there is no guarantee that just because the vendor has entered into a lock out agreement they will sell to you. They may breach the agreement if they receive a large enough offer to do so because an aggrieved party with the benefit of a lockoutcontract will still be obliged show losses as a consequence of the breach and these may not equate the financial upside that your seller may gain by breaching the agreement, no matter how morally reprehensible it undoubtedly is.

I am considering mortgaging my house in Langford, does my lawyer need to be on the TSB Solicitor panel?

There is nothing to stop you using your solicitor, but TSB will insist on their interests being represented by a firm on their conveyancing panel. There is much more potential for delays and confusion with an additional lawyer added to the mix, and it will undoubtedly be more expensive too.

The deeds to my property are lost. The lawyers who handled the conveyancing in Langford 10 years ago no longer exist. What do I do?

Nowadays there are copies made of almost everything, and your conveyancer should be aware precisely where to locate all the relevant paperwork so you may purchase or sell your property without any difficulty. If copies can’t be found, your conveyancer can put in place insurance or indemnities protecting you against possible claims on the property.

I have been informed by many family members to expect up to two months for Langford conveyancing to complete.This was 3 ago. The paperwork was only forwarded to my property lawyer yesterday so does the time start running now?

You need to be pragmatic concerning timing. Property transactions in Langford takes on average about two months. This time period is not because solicitor are slow and purposely delay matters. The amount of money involved in buying any property is so high, the purchaser's solicitor having to carry out a whole range of questions, searches and other checks to protect the purchaser and their mortgage company (if there is to be a home loan) from expensive, avoidable problems. These investigations involves seeking information from various different parties, including other conveyancing practitioner, local councils, private companies, mortgage companies. Some of these are efficient. Others are not. And remember, no matter how quickly your property lawyer do their job, if the people you are purchasing from or are selling to aren't ready, nothing can move forward until they are.
