My fiance’s sister is a solicitor. I suspect that I'll be able to get friends and family fee for conveyancing, but if not, what kind of costs should I be paying for conveyancing in Marlow?
You should compare pricing. Make use of our comparison tool on this site. The fees do vary but the service one can expect differ between law firms as is true with most professions.
My wife and I are buying a flat in Marlow. It might be a silly question but how we can trust a conveyancer? On completion day we will need to send money into their account. What protection do we have from them run away with our monies?
Be assured that all money in a Solicitors client account is 100% safe, and even if your Solicitor ran off with it, the Law Society would reimburse you fully.
I am expecting a OIP from Co-operative this week so we know how much we could potentially offer as otherwise we only have online calculators to go by (which aren't taking into account credit checks etc). Do Co-operative recommend any Marlow solicitors on the Co-operative conveyancing panel, or is it better to go independently?
You will need to appoint Marlow solicitors independently although you'll need to choose one on the Co-operative conveyancing panel. The solicitor represents both you and Co-operative through the process.
I am selling my flat. I had a double glazing fitted in August 2006, but did not receive a FENSA certificate or Building Regulation Certificate. My buyer's lender, RBS are being a right pain. The Marlow solicitor who is on the RBS conveyancing panel is recommending indemnity insurance as a solution but RBS are requiring a building regulation certificate. Why do RBS have a conveyancing panel if they don't accept advice from them?
It is probably the case that RBS have referred the matter to their valuer. The reason why RBS may not want to accept indemnity insurance is because it does not give them any reassurance that the double glazing was correctly and safely installed. The indemnity insurance merely protects against enforcement action which is very unlikely anyway.
Just had an offer accepted on a new build apartment in Marlow. Conveyancing is necessary evil at the best of times but I have never purchased a new build flat before. Can you give me some examples of some of the questions asked in new build conveyancing.
Set out below is a sample of a selection of leasehold new build questions that you may expect your new-build leasehold conveyancing in Marlow
Please supply a car parking plan. Will the freehold then be transferred for a nominal consideration (not exceeding £100) to the Management Company? The Lease must contain a provision on behalf of the Vendor to pay the service charges in respect of unoccupied units in order to ensure that all services can be provided. The Vendor must covenant to keep unsold units in good repair until long leases are granted therefore. Forfeiture - bankruptcy or liquidation must not apply under this provision.
I have been on the look out for a ground for flat up to £305k and found one round the corner in Marlow I like with a park and railway links in the vicinity, however it's only got 51 years on the lease. I can't really find anything else in Marlow suitable, so just wondered if I would be making a mistake acquiring a short lease?
Should you require a mortgage the shortness of the lease will be problematic. Reduce the offer by the anticipated lease extension will cost if not already taken into account. If the current owner has owned the premises for at least 2 years you may request that they commence the lease extension formalities and pass it to you. You can add 90 years to the existing lease term and have £0 ground rent by law. You should consult your conveyancing lawyer about this.
Given that I will soon spend 450k on a two bedroom apartment in Marlow I would like to have a conversation with the solicitor concerning thehome move before appointing the firm. Can this be arranged?
We could not agree more - it is our preference to talk to you we do not take any clients on without you speaking to the conveyancer due to be doing your property ownership legalities in Marlow.There is no ‘factory style conveyancing’ - every client is an important individual, not a file number. The practices that we put you in touch with believe that the figure you are quoted for your conveyancing in Marlow should be the amount on the final invoice that you end up paying.
