When can the exchange of contracts take place for purchase conveyancing in Mevagissey and do I need to be at the solicitors office?

If you are round the corner to our conveyancing solicitors in Mevagissey you are welcome to attend to sign documents. However, the lender approved solicitors we recommend offer countrywide coverage for conveyancing and provide just as comprehensive and professional a job for you when communicating with you by post or email.

Will my solicitor be raising enquiries about flooding during the conveyancing in Mevagissey.

Flooding is a growing risk for solicitors carrying out conveyancing in Mevagissey. Plenty of people will acquire a property in Mevagissey, completely expectant that at some time, it may suffer from flooding. However, aside from the physical damage, if a house is at risk of flooding, it may be difficult to obtain a mortgage, satisfactory building insurance, or sell the property. Steps can be carried out as part of the conveyancing process to forewarn the buyer.

Lawyers are not best placed to impart advice on flood risk, however there are a number of checks that may be initiated by the buyer or by their solicitors which can figure out the risks in Mevagissey. The conventional set of completed inquiry forms given to a purchaser’s conveyancer (where the solicitors are adopting what is known as the Conveyancing Protocol) includes a standard question of the vendor to determine whether the premises has suffered from flooding. If the property has been flooded in past and is not revealed by the vendor, then a buyer may commence a claim for damages stemming from an misleading reply. The buyer’s conveyancers may also commission an enviro search. This will disclose whether there is any known flood risk. If so, further investigations should be carried out.

The quickest method to check if the property is registered to you, you can make 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 Mevagissey conveyancing specialists.

I have just started marketing my basement apartment in Mevagissey. Conveyancing has not commenced, however I have just received a half-yearly maintenance charge demand – Do I pay up?

Your conveyancing lawyer is likely to suggest that you should discharge the service charge as usual as all rents and service charges will be apportioned as part of the financial calculations for completion monies, so you will be reimbursed by the buyer for the period running from after the completion date to the next payment date. Most managing agents will not acknowledge the buyer unless the service charges have been paid and are up to date, so it is important for both buyer and seller for the seller to show that they are up to date. This will smooth the conveyancing process.

    How many years are left on the lease? Are any of leasehold owners in dispute over their service charge liability?
