If you had a top tip for choosing a conveyancing solicitor in Newquay what would it be?
It would be unwise to be seduced by the lowest Newquay conveyancing costs illustration. You really do get what you’re paying for when it comes to property lawyers. 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 the deal.
A colleague informed me that in purchasing a property in Newquay there could be various restrictions limiting what one can do in terms of external alterations to the property. Is this right?

My wife and I are in the process of looking at apartments in Newquay and I am about to put in an offer. Is it premature to have a solicitor in place? I intend to finance via a home loan with Lloyds.
It would be sensible to commence your search sooner rather than later. After you have chosen your lawyer and once your offer is accepted you can instruct them to work for you and pass their contact information on to the selling agent. As you are taking out a mortgage with Lloyds, make sure you remember to check that your lawyer is on the Lloyds conveyancing panel.
How does conveyancing in Newquay differ for newly converted properties?
Most buyers of new build premises in Newquay approach us having been asked by the builder to sign contracts and commit to the purchase even before the premises is finished. This is because new home sellers in Newquay tend to buy the land, plan the estate and want to get the plots sold off as they are building the properties. Buyers, therefore, will have to exchange contracts without actually seeing the house they are buying. To reduce the chances of losing the property, buyers should instruct conveyancers as soon as the property is reserved and mortgage applications should be submitted quickly. Due to the fact that it could be several months and even years between exchange of contracts and completion, the mortgage offer may need to be extended. It would be wise to use a lawyer who specialises in new build conveyancing especially if they are used to new build conveyancing in Newquay or who has acted in the same development.
I am looking for a ground for flat up to £235,500 and identified one near me in Newquay I like with amenity areas and railway links nearby, however it only has 61 years unexpired on the lease. I can't really find anything else in Newquay in this price bracket, so just wondered if I would be making a grave error buying a lease with such few years left?
If you require a mortgage the remaining unexpired lease term may be a potential deal breaker. Reduce the price by the amount the lease extension will cost if it has not already been discounted. If the existing owner has owned the premises for a minimum of twenty four months you can request that they start the process of the extension and pass it to you. An additional ninety years can be extended on to the existing lease term and have £0 ground rent by law. You should consult your conveyancing solicitor regarding this matter.

If if people you trust used your friend and they were impressed that must trump using an unfamiliar Newquay conveyancing solicitor just because they are round the corner.
