We opted for a high street solicitor for my conveyancing in Leicester today. Upon checking the Terms I noteI am responsible for fees even if the movedoes not happen. Should I ditch them and instruct an on-line conveyancing company promising no completion no charge conveyancing in Leicester?
It is usually a trade off in that if "No Completion No Fee" is offered then the conveyancing charges will tend to be be more expensive to cover those cases that do not go ahead. Also remember that these arrangements generally do not protect you from expenses for example Leicester conveyancing search fees.
This question may be naive but I am unexperienced as FTB of a two bedroom flat in Leicester. Do I pick up the keys to the house on completion from my conveyancer? If so, I will appoint a High Street conveyancing solicitor in Leicester?
There is no need to visit the lawyers office on the day of completion. Your solicitors will transfer the purchase money to the seller's conveyancers, and once they have received this, you will be invited to receive the keys from the Estate Agents and start moving into the property. This tends to happen early afternoon.
A colleague pointed out to me me that in buying a property in Leicester there could be a number of restrictions prohibiting external changes to the property. Is this right?
There are anumerous of properties in Leicester which have some sort of restriction or requirement of consent to carry out external alterations. Part of the conveyancing in Leicester should determine what restrictions are applicable and advising you as part of a ROT that should be sent to you.
We have agreed to purchase a house in Leicester. A rare aspect is that the roof has a solar panel. Aldermore have issued a mortgage offer so presumably this is not a concern to them. Why is my solicitor raising questions about the panel?
As you are obtaining a mortgage with Aldermore your lawyer must check the conveyancing requirements contained in Section 2 of UK Finance Lenders’ Handbook for Aldermore. The CML Handbook stipulates minimum specifications for solar panel roof-space leases, and lawyers are required to report to Aldermore where a lease fails to satisfy these requirements. The specifications relate to the installation of panels on properties in England and Wales and is not restricted to Leicester.
I have justfound out that Arc property Solicitors have been shut down. They carried out my conveyancing in Leicester for a purchase of a leasehold flat 9 months ago. How can I establish that the property is in my name in the name of the former proprietor?
The quickest way to check if the property is in your name, you can carry out 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 Leicester conveyancing specialists.
