My wife and I are about to exchange on the purchase of a property in Mawsley but as a consequence of wreckage from the recent storms I have managed to agree compensation from the owner of £2k by way of a reduction in the price. This was going to be addressed as part of amending the contract yet Clydesdale will not agree to this. Should they have been approached?
Any solicitor that is on a Clydesdale approved list is obliged to inform Clydesdale of any variations to the purchase price. If you prohibit your conveyancing practitioner to report the price change to Clydesdale then they would have to discontinue acting for you. In addition, Clydesdale and you would have to appoint a new conveyancing practitioner for your conveyancing in Mawsley.
Is it the case that all Mawsley solicitor firms on the Aldermore conveyancing panel are governed by the Solicitors Regulatory Authority?
As solicitors, in order to be on the Aldermore approved list of solicitors they would need to be regulated by the SRA. Many banks do list licenced conveyancers on their panel in which case such practice would be overseen by the CLC.
Planning on purchasing a flat in Mawsley. I have received an online quote from a licenced conveyancer, which states: "There will be no charge for dealing with the Building Society if you are obtaining a mortgage". I take this to mean that there will be no additional fee if the solicitor is on the Skipton conveyancing panel. I wanted to make sure it means there will be no additional fees for dealing with the mortgage.
They are simply saying that the cost for acting for the lender is included in the fee being quoted. It is worth you checking that the Mawsley conveyancer is on the Skipton conveyancing panel.
After shopping around on the internet I have found a Mawsley lawyer having made sure that they are on the Aldermore conveyancing panel. Does my lawyer arrange the survey of the property?
Aldermore will need an independent valuation of the property. Your lawyer will not arrange this. Usually Aldermore will appoint their own surveyor to do this, and you will have to pay for it. Remember that this is a valuation for mortgage purposes and not a survey. You may wish to consider appointing your own Mawsley surveyor to carry out a survey or prepare a home buyers report on the property. It is up to you to satisfy yourself that the property is structurally sound before you buy it. If the survey or report reveals that building work is needed, you should tell your solicitor. You may wish to renegotiate with the seller.
What will a local search tell me about the house my wife and I buying in Mawsley?
Mawsley conveyancing often starts with the applying for local authority searches directly from your local Authority or through a personal search company such as Searches UK The local search is essential in every Mawsley conveyancing purchase; that is if you wish to avoid any unpleasant surprises after you move into your property. The search will provide information on, amongst other things, details on planning applications relevant to the premises (whether granted or refused), building control history, any enforcement action, restrictions on permitted development, nearby road schemes, contaminated land and radon gas; in all a total of thirteen subject sections.
Taking into account that I am about to spend 450k on a two bedroom apartment in Mawsley I wish to talk to a lawyer regarding theconveyancing before appointing the firm. Can this be arranged?
Absolutely - it is our preference to talk to you we do not take any clients on without you speaking to the solicitor who will be conducting your conveyancing in Mawsley.There is no ‘factory style conveyancing’ - every client is unique individual, not a case number. The practices that we put you in touch with believe that the figure you are provided with for residential conveyancing in Mawsley should be the figure that you are charged.
