My fiance’s brother is a solicitor. I hope that I will receive mate’s fee for conveyancing, but if not, what level of fees would I typically be looking at for conveyancing in Plympton?
Do contrast pricing. Make use of our search tool on this page. The fees seem to vary but service levels do are distinct between conveyancers as is the case with the vast majority of professional services.
We are selling our property in Plympton and according to the buyers it appears that there is a possibility that the property was built land that was not decontaminated. A high street Plympton lawyer would know this is not the case. It does beg the question why the buyers are using an internet conveyancing firm as opposed to a conveyancing solicitor in Plympton. Having lived in Plympton for 4 years we know that this is a non issue. Is it a good idea to get in touch with our local Authority to seek confirmation that there is no issue.
It would appear that you have a conveyancing solicitor currently acting for you. Are they able to advise? You should enquire of your lawyer before you do anything. It is very possible that once the local authority has been informed of a potential issue it cannot be insured against (a bit like being diagnosed with a serious illness and then taking out health insurance to cover that same sickness)
I opted to have a survey completed on a property in Plympton before appointing solicitors. I have been advised that there is a flying freehold overhang to the property. Our surveyor advised that some mortgage companies tend not give a mortgage on such a home.
It varies from the lender to lender. Lloyds has different requirements from Nationwide. If you e-mail us we can investigate further via the appropriate lender. If you lender is happy to lend one our lawyers can help as they are used to dealing with flying freeholds in Plympton. Conveyancing may be slightly more expensive based on your lender's requirements.
I was advised by a couple of local selling agents in Plympton to select a property lawyer on your site. Is there a financial incentive for Estate Agents to offer your site ahead of another?
We don’t make any commission for sending work in our direction. We thought it would be too underhand to pay a commission as members of the public would think, ‘How come the agent getting a kickback? Why aren’t I receiving any benefit too?’ We would prefer to grow our business on genuine recommendations.
My husband and I hope to acquire our 1st home in Plympton. Conveyancing lawyer has been appointed. The broker advised that a survey is not necessary as the property is only 17 years old.
At the very least you should have a Home Buyer's Report. Given the residence is over ten years old the property will not benefit from a warranty, so you don't want to take a risk. Where a property of this age shows no signs of defects a Home Buyer's report could be sufficient. The report should highlight any obvious problems and recommend further investigation if relevant. If there are any signs of material issues obtain a comprehensive structural survey.
