I am in need of a conveyancer. Do I opt for an internet conveyancer as opposed to a high street Long Eaton conveyancing solicitor?
Existing third party relationships is an important consideration when choosing conveyancing lawyers. Long Eaton law firms enjoy connections with lenders and property, local authorities, surveyors and other law firms meaning you will move in shortest possible time. Having a sound experience in the local area is also a plus .
My partner and I have recently purchased a house in Long Eaton. We have noticed several problems with the house which we consider were omitted in the conveyancing searches. Do we have any recourse? Can you clarify the nature of searches that should have been ordered as part of conveyancing in Long Eaton?
It is not clear from the question as to the nature of the problems and if they are unique to conveyancing in Long Eaton. Conveyancing searches and investigations undertaken during the buying process are supposed to help avoid problems. As part of the legal transfer of property, a property owner fills in a form known as a Seller’s Property Information Form. If the information is misleading, you may have a misrepresentation claim against the seller for any losses that you have suffered. The survey should have identified any problems with the structure of the property. Assuming a detailed survey was carried out and the issues were not identified, you may have a claim against the surveyor. However, if you did not have a full survey, you may be responsible for fixing any defects that have now been noted. We would always encourage buyers to take every possible step to ensure they are completely aware of the condition of a property before purchase regardless of whether they are buying in Long Eaton.
Due to the encouragement of my in-laws I had a survey completed on a property in Long Eaton ahead of retaining lawyers. I have been advised that there is a flying freehold aspect to the property. Our surveyor advised that some banks may refuse to grant a mortgage on this type of home.

My husband and I are FTB’s - had an offer accepted, yet the agent informed us that the vendor will only issue a contract if we use the agent's chosen solicitors as they need a ‘quick sale’. Our preferred option is to instruct a local solicitor accustomed to conveyancing in Long Eaton
We suspect that the seller is unaware of this demand. Should the owner desire ‘a quick sale', alienating a genuine buyer is counter productive. Bypass the agents and go straight to the owners and make sure they understand (a)you are keen to buy (b)you are excited to move forward, with finances arranged © you do not need to sell (d) you intend to proceed fast (e)but you are going to appoint your preferred Long Eaton conveyancing firm - as opposed tothose that will earn their negotiator at the agency a commission or hit his conveyancing thresholds set by head office.
