AssumingI was to buy a freehold propertyin Lansbury mortgage fee and have no survey and no conveyancing searches how much could I expect to to save on my conveyancing in Lansbury?
The only reduction in fees you would make on is the costs for searches. The solicitor is required to do the vast majority of work - money laundering, communicating with your vendors conveyancer, stamp duty submission, register the title etc. You might save a bit for them not having to register a charge but it won't be significant.
If you had a top tip for choosing a conveyancing solicitor in Lansbury what would it be?
Do not opt for the cheapest Lansbury conveyancing costs illustration. You really do get what you’re paying for when it comes to conveyancing solicitors. A cheap quote may mean that the conveyancing solicitor is handling a lot of jobs at one time and you won’t get the quality of service and the attention that you need. It is, however, wise to use a conveyancer who has a fixed fee on a no sale, no fee basis. This way, you go into the conveyancing with your eyes wide open.
Forgive me if this question is silly but I am wet behind the ears as a 1st time buyer of a garden flat in Lansbury. Do I collect the keys to the property on completion from my lawyer? If so, I will find a High Street conveyancing solicitor in Lansbury?
There is no need to visit the lawyers office on the day of completion. Conveyancing lawyers for you will arrange to send the purchase money to the owner’s lawyers, and once they have received this, you will be able to pick up the keys from the Estate Agents and move into your new home. Usually this occurs between 1 and 3pm.
My offer on a house in Lansbury has been accepted, but there is a chain. The vendors have placed an offer on on an apartment, but it’s not been accepted yet, and have viewings of other properties in the pipeline. I have chosen a high street conveyancing solicitor in Lansbury. What do I do now? At what stage do I apply for the mortgage with Santander?
It is usual to have apprehensions where there is a chain as you are unlikely to want to incur costs too early (mortgage application is in the region of one thousand pounds, then survey, Lansbury conveyancing search costs, etc). The first course of action is to ensure that your solicitor is on the Santander conveyancing panel. Regarding the next phase this very much dictated by the uniqueness of your case, desire for this property and on the state of the market. In a buoyant market many buyers would apply for the mortgage with Santander and pay for the valuation and only if it comes back ok would they pay their conveyancing practitioner to move forward with the conveyancing in Lansbury.
It has been 3 months following my purchase conveyancing in Lansbury took place. I have checked the Land Registry website which shows that I paid £200,000 when infact I paid £215,000. Why the discrepancy?
The price paid figure is taken from the application to register the purchase. It is the figure included in the Transfer (the legal deed which transfers the residence from one person to the other) and referred to as the 'consideration' or purchase price. You can report an error in the price paid figure using the LR online form. In most cases errors result from typos so at first glance the figure. Do report it so they can double check and advise.
Yesterday I discovered that there is a flying freehold issue on a house I have offered on two weeks back in what was supposed to be a simple, chain free conveyancing. Lansbury is the location of the property. Can you offer any assistance?
Flying freeholds in Lansbury are rare but are more likely to exist in relation to terraced houses. Even where you use a solicitor outside Lansbury you must be sure that your lawyer goes through the deeds thoroughly. Your bank may require your conveyancing solicitor to take out an indemnity policy. Some of the more diligent conveyancing solicitors in Lansbury may determine that this is not enough and that the deeds be re-written to give you the most up to date legal protection. If so, the next door neighbour also had to sign up to the revised deeds.It is possible that your lender will not accept the situation so the sooner you find out the better. You should also check with your insurance broker as to whether they will insure a flying freehold premises.
