Having been recommended your site we were going to go ahead with a conveyancing solicitor in Lostwithiel recommended by you but stumbled across alternative estimates on the internet look cheaper – why is this?
There are plenty of conveyancing outfits marketing at first sight what seems to be cut price. Our recommendation is to think long and hard as to how much you respect your own move to want to take 'cheap' risks over the quality of the legal work. Some hide fees deep into the terms of engagement. The conveyancers that we put forward for conveyancing in Lostwithiel will notbehave this way.
The sellers of the house we are purchasing have instructed a conveyancing firm in Lostwithiel who has suggested a lock out contract with a down payment of 5k. Are such agreements sensible?
This type of preliminary agreement isn't frequently used in Lostwithiel, conveyancers will often direct clients away from them as they detract from the main conveyancing focus and if you end up losing your deposit then the solicitor is left exposed. In addition, there is no assurance that just because the vendor has entered into a lock out contract they will complete the sale with you. They may breach the agreement if they receive a large enough offer to do so because a wronged claimant with the benefit of a exclusivitycontract will still have to show losses as a consequence of the breach and these may not compare to the extra amount that your seller may secure by breaching the contract, however morally shameful it undoubtedly is.
We are aiming to move property in January. Does my conveyancing solicitor call the removal company on the day of completion. As an aside, can you recommend a removal company in Lostwithiel. Conveyancing solicitor was organised prior to coming across this page.
On the afternoon of completion you will need to collect the keys from your selling agent however this can only be done once the sellers solicitors confirm to the agent that they have the completion monies and the keys can be collected. You can tell the removal men that they can start moving you in. As a matter of policy we do not suggest a particular removal organisation but can assist you in finding a residential property solicitor in Lostwithiel or a solicitor that specialises in conveyancing in Lostwithiel.
We previously instructed solicitors with offices in Lostwithiel on the Virgin Money solicitor panel. They are now charging me a separate fee for dealing with the Virgin Money mortgage. Is this an additional conveyancing fee specified by Virgin Money?
Provided it is contained in their Terms of Engagement or estimate then yes your conveyancing practitioner may charge a fee for this. The fee is not dictated by Virgin Money but by your Lostwithiel conveyancer. Some firms on the Virgin Money panel will levy an ‘acting for lender’ fee but many firms include it on their overall fee.
We have agreed to purchase a house in Lostwithiel. An unusual aspect is that the roof has a solar panel. Solicitors conducting should look into this right? Will my lender Coventry BS be concerned?
Given that your lender is Coventry BS your lawyer must comply with the formal instructions outlined in Section 2 of UK Finance Lenders’ Handbook for Coventry BS. The Council of Mortgage Lenders’ Handbook contains minimum conditions for solar panel roof-space leases, and solicitors are required to report to Coventry BS where a lease fails to meet these requirements. The specifications relate to the installation of panels on properties in England and Wales and is not isolated to Lostwithiel.
