Recently asked questions about conveyancing in North Plymouth

We have very assertive vendors who has recommended a preliminary agreement with a down payment 6,000. Are such agreements recommended for North Plymouth conveyancing transactions?

There are a couple of main drawbacks with executing a lock out contract (sometimes known as a shut-out contract) is that it can distract from making progress with the conveyancing work, so in the absence of it needing minimal or no negotiation then it could turn out to be unhelpful. It is not strongly advocated by North Plymouth conveyancing practitioners as a result. The other main issue is the extent of the remedies available - a jilted purchaser should not expect to secure injunctive relief to bar the seller completing the sale to a third party, so the only remedy available under the contract will be the reimbursement of wasted costs and, in limited situations, the extra payment of penalties.

It is 10 years ago since I acquired my home in North Plymouth. Conveyancing solicitors have recently been appointed on the sale but I am unable to track down my deeds. Is this a major issue?

Don’t worry too much. Firstly there is a possibility that the deeds will be retained by the lender or they may still be with the solicitor who handled your purchase. Secondly in all probability the property will be recorded at the land registry and you will be able to establish that you are the registered owner by your conveyancing solicitors procuring up to date copy of the land registers. Most conveyancing in North Plymouth involves registered property but in the unlikely event that your property is not registered it is more tricky but is not insurmountable.

We are due to move house in July. Does my conveyancing solicitor liaise with the removal company on the day of completion. Incidentally, can you put forward a removal company in North Plymouth. Conveyancing firm was organised before I stumbled across this site.

On the day of completion you can collect the keys from the estate agent but this should only happen once the vendors conveyancers confirm to the agent that the monies to complete are in and the keys can be released. After that you will need to advise the removal company that they can start moving you in. As a matter of policy we do not recommend a particular removal company but can help you locate a conveyancing in North Plymouth or a legal practice with expertise in conveyancing in North Plymouth.

The property agent will need to be informed of your solicitor's details (make sure the property lawyers are on the lender’s approved list). Call up Bank of Ireland or the financial adviser and finalise any appropriate forms. Bank of Ireland will appoint a valuer who will get in touch with the estate agent or seller to arrange a time for the valuation to occur. Once conducted (assuming no problems) it takes about a fortnight to receive the mortgage offer. Bank of Ireland will send the offer to you and your conveyancing practitioners. The transaction will then take it’s course according the nature and complexity of the conveyancing in North Plymouth.
