The loan offer from HSBC for the refinancing of my 2 room flat is due by the end of next week. Can you put forward a low cost conveyancing practitioner in Portsmouth?

You are on the wrong site if you are in need of cut-price fees for conveyancing solicitors in Portsmouth. We can offer you affordable conveyancing but we do not aim to work with the cheapest lawyers. Avoid the trap of appointing organisations enticing you with ninety nine pound conveyancing in Portsmouth.

I am expecting a OIP from Kent Reliance this week so we know how much we could potentially offer as otherwise we only have online calculators to go by (which aren't taking into account credit checks etc).

You will need to appoint Portsmouth solicitors independently although you'll need to choose one on the Kent Reliance conveyancing panel. The solicitor represents both you and Kent Reliance through the process.

Planning on purchasing a maisonette in Portsmouth. I have received an online quote from a licenced conveyancer, which states: "There will be no charge for dealing with the Lender if you are obtaining a mortgage". I take this to mean that there will be no additional fee if the solicitor is on the Aldermore conveyancing panel. I wanted to make sure it means there will be no additional fees for dealing with the mortgage.

They are simply saying that the cost for acting for the lender is included in the fee being quoted. It is worth you checking that the Portsmouth conveyancing practitioner is on the Aldermore conveyancing panel.

What does a local search reveal regarding the house we're purchasing in Portsmouth?

Portsmouth conveyancing often commences with the applying for local authority searches directly from your local Authority or through a personal search organisations for instance PSG The local search is essential in every Portsmouth conveyancing purchase; that is if you don’t want any unpleasant once you have moved into your property. The search should supply data on, amongst other things, details on planning applications relevant to the premises (whether granted or refused), building control history, any enforcement action, restrictions on permitted development, nearby road schemes, contaminated land and radon gas; in all a total of 13 topic headings.

How does conveyancing in Portsmouth differ for new build properties?

Most buyers of new build property in Portsmouth approach us having been asked by the seller to exchange contracts and commit to the purchase even before the house is finished. This is because developers in Portsmouth typically purchase the real estate, 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 conveyancing solicitors 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 Portsmouth or who has acted in the same development.
