There are a variety of conveyancing solicitors in Polperro but how do I know who I should use?
We would encourage you not to base your choice on the lowest Polperro 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 go into the conveyancing with your eyes wide open.

After shopping around on the internet I have found a Polperro solicitor having made sure that they are on the RBS conveyancing panel. Does my lawyer arrange the survey of the property?
RBS will need an independent valuation of the property. Your lawyer will not arrange this. Usually RBS will appoint their own surveyor to do this, and you will have to pay for it. Remember that this is a valuation for mortgage purposes and not a survey. Your solicitor will not organise the survey but they may be able to put you in touch with a local one that they recommend. RICS offers a find a surveyor service (just google it) where you can search for a qualified surveyor by your Polperro postcode. As you are getting a mortgage with RBS, you could contact them to see if they have a list of approved surveyors in Polperro.

I acquired a house in Polperro last 16/11/2020 and to date it is still not recorded with the Land Registry. It is part of a new estate and my conveyancing practitioner told me that it may take 12 months to complete the registration formalities. I have called HM Land Registry directly and they say that the original application was cancelled due to questions not being addressed in time. Should I be concerned?
