Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Nantwich

The owners have very brash sellers who has suggested a preliminary agreement with a down payment 10k. Are such agreements sensible?

There are a couple of primary drawbacks with executing a lock out contract (occasionally known as a no-shop agreement) is that it takes away the focus from progressing with the conveyancing process, so in the absence of it needing little or no negotiation then it may transpire to be a hindrance. It is not particularly popular by Nantwich conveyancing solicitors for this reason. The other main concern is the extent of the remedies available - a jilted buyer should not expect to obtain an injunctive ruling by a court to prevent the vendor completing the sale to another buyer, so the only remedy available under the contract will be the reimbursement of abortive costs and, in restricted situations, the additional payment of damages.

When will exchange of contracts occur in residential conveyancing in Nantwich and am I required to attend the conveyancers office?

If you are in close proximity to our conveyancing solicitors in Nantwich you are invited in to sign documents. That being said, the firms we recommend offer a nationwide conveyancing service and provide just as detailed and professional a job for you when dealing with you by post or email. The signing of the property agreement is not the point of no return. Signing on the dotted line is necessary for the conveyancer to officially exchange when the time is right, which is ordinarily shortly after signing. The exchange process is is usually a five minute process, although where a lengthy "chain" is in play, since the process requires the relevant party's solicitor (not necessarily a conveyancing solicitor in Nantwich)to be in the office available at the end of the phone to exchange contracts.

I am helping my mother sell her property in Nantwich. Will the conveyancer commission an energy assessment or do I organise this?

Following the abolition of Home Information Packs, energy assessments was kept a mandatory element of moving house. An energy assessment must be to hand before the property is advertised. This is not something that solicitors ordinarily organise. If you are using a Nantwich conveyancing practitioner they might be willing to arrange energy assessments due to their relationships with long established Nantwich assessors

We had selected solicitors located in Nantwich on the Santander solicitor panel. They have just billed me a supplemental amount for dealing with the Santander mortgage. Is this a supplemental conveyancing fee specified by Santander?

As unfair as it may appear, as long as it’s in their Terms of Engagement or Quote then yes your conveyancer may levy a fee for this. The charge is not set by Santander but by your Nantwich property lawyer. Plenty of firms on the Santander panel will levy ’dealing with mortgage’ fee but some firms include it on their overall fee.

I have today made my last payment due on my mortgage with Coventry BS. I assume I don't need a Nantwich property lawyer on the Coventry BS panel to remove the mortgage at the Land Registry. Am I right?

If you have finished paying off your Coventry BS mortgage, they may send you evidence showing that you have paid it off. Alternatively they may notify the Land Registry directly. The Land Registry need to see this evidence before they will remove the Coventry BS mortgage from the register. Coventry BS, and any evidence they send you, will determine the action you need to take. In cases where no conveyancer is acting for you and you have paid off your mortgage:

  1. but are not moving to another property
  2. where Coventry BS has sent the Land Registry the discharge electronically, and
  3. Coventry BS has instructed the Land Registry to do so
The Land Registry will send you a letter confirming that your Coventry BS mortgage has been paid off.

Its becoming the norm that commercial conveyancing solicitors in Nantwich will carry out a SiteSolutions Highways report as it reduces the time that conveyancers spend in looking into accurate data on highways that impact buildings and development assets in Nantwich.
