If you had a top tip for choosing a conveyancing solicitor in Middlesbrough what would it be?

Do not opt for the cheapest Middlesbrough conveyancing costs illustration. You really do get what you’re paying for when it comes to conveyancing solicitors. A cheap quote may mean that the conveyancing solicitor is handling a lot of jobs at one time and you won’t get the quality of service and the attention that you need. It is, however, wise to use a conveyancer who has a fixed fee on a no sale, no fee basis. This way, you know exactly what you’ll have to pay in ahead of time.

I am due to move home in December. Does my conveyancing solicitor liaise with the removal company on the day of completion. On a separate note, can you put forward a removal company in Middlesbrough. Conveyancing lawyer was chosen before I stumbled across your site.

On the day of completion you will need to collect the keys from your estate agent however this should only be done once the previous owners lawyers advise the agent that they acknowledge receipt of the completion payment and the keys can be handed over. Subsequently you will need to tell the removal men that you are ready to move in. As a matter of policy we do not suggest a particular removal organisation but can assist you in choosing a residential property solicitor in Middlesbrough or a solicitor with expertise in conveyancing in Middlesbrough.

Two weeks ago we had a mortgage agreed in principle with Yorkshire BS. Middlesbrough conveyancing practitioners have been selected. How long does it take for Yorkshire BS to forward the offer to the conveyancer?

Some lenders take longer than others. Have Yorkshire BS done the survey? Have you advised Yorkshire BS as to your lawyers' details and checked that your lawyers are on the Yorkshire BS conveyancing panel? It is not unusual for a mortgage offer to take a month to come through.

My colleague suggested that if I am buying in Middlesbrough I should ask my conveyancer to execute a Neighbourhood, Planning and Local Amenity Search. What does it cover?

A search of this type is sometimes quoted for as part of the standard Middlesbrough conveyancing searches. It is a large document of more than thirty pages, listing and detailing significant information about Middlesbrough around the property and the people living there. It incorporates an Aerial Photograph, Planning Applications, Land Use, Mobile Phone Masts, Rights of Way, the Middlesbrough Housing Market, Council Tax Banding, the demographics of People living in the area, the dominant type of Housing, the Average Property Price, Crime statistics, Local Education with plans and statistics, Local Amenities and other useful data about Middlesbrough.

I purchased a renovated Victorian property in Middlesbrough. Conveyancing lawyer represented me and Godiva Mortgages Ltd. I did a free Land Registry search last week and I saw a couple of entries: one for freehold, the second leasehold under the matching property. If a house is not a freehold shouldn't I have been informed?

You should assess the Freehold register you have again and check the Charges Register as there may be mention of a lease. The best way to be sure that you are also the registered owner of the leasehold and freehold title as well is to check (£3). It is not completely unheard of in Middlesbrough and other areas of the country and poses no real issues for owners other than when they remortgage they have to account for both freehold and leasehold interests when dealing with buyers. You can also question the position with your conveyancing practitioner who completed the work.

Am I right to be wary that estate agents that I am dealing with are encouraging me to use a web based conveyancing firm rather than a local Middlesbrough conveyancing company?

As is the case with many service providers, often input from connections can be worth their weight in gold. But there are numerous players in a conveyancing deal; estate agents, mortgage brokers and lenders may suggest solicitors to choose. Sometimes these lawyers might be known to one of the organisations as experts in their field, but sometimes there might be a financial incentive behind the endorsement. You have the right to appoint your preferred lawyer. However, bear in mind that many lenders have an approved list of conveyancers you must use for the mortgage related work in your house move.
