As a novice what is the most important advice you can impart about purchase conveyancing in Poynton?

Not many law firms shout this from the rooftops but conveyancing in Poynton or throughout Cheshire is an adversarial process. In other words, when it comes to conveyancing there is an abundance of room for conflict between you and other parties involved in the house moving process. E.g., the seller, estate agent and sometimes your lender. Choosing a lawyer for your conveyancing in Poynton is a critical decision as your conveyancer is your adviser, and is the ONLY party in the legal process whose role it is to protect your best interests and to keep you safe.

On occasion a potential adversary will try and convince you that you should follow their advice. As an example, the property agent may claim to be helping by suggesting your solicitor is wrong. Or your mortgage broker may advise you to do something that is against your conveyancers advice. You should always trust your lawyer above all other parties when it comes to the legal transfer of property.

Can you clarify what the consequences are if my lawyer’s firm is removed from the Kent Reliance Solicitor panel ahead of completing my conveyancing in Poynton?

First, this is a very rare occurrence. In most cases even where a law firm is removed off of a panel the lender would allow the completion to go ahead as the lender would appreciate the difficulties that they would place you in if you have to instruct a new solicitor days before completion. In a worst case scenario where the lender insists that you instruct a new firm then it is possible for a very good lawyer to expedite the conveyancing albeit that you may pay a significant premium for this. The analogous situation is where a buyer instructs a lawyer, exchanges contracts and the law firm is shut down by a regulator such as the SRA. Again, in this situation you can find lawyers who can troubleshoot their way to bring the conveyancing to a satisfactory conclusion - albeit at a cost.

My wife and I are buying a property in Poynton. I might seem paranoid but how we can trust a solicitor? At some point we will need to send our life savings into their account. What is the protection we have from them run away with our monies?

Be assured that all money in a Solicitors client account is 100% safe, and even if your Solicitor ran off with it, the Law Society would reimburse you fully.

This question may be naive but I am new to the house moving as FTB of a two bedroom flat in Poynton. Do I pick up the keys to the house on completion from my lawyer? If this is the case, I will find a local conveyancing solicitor in Poynton?

On the day of completion you will not be required to attend the conveyancers office in Poynton. Your solicitors will arrange to send the completion advance to the seller's solicitors, and once they have received this, you will be invited to pick up the keys from the Estate Agents and start moving into the property. This tends to happen early afternoon.

I am due to move property in March. Does my conveyancing solicitor update the removal company on the day of completion. On a separate note, can you put forward a removal company in Poynton. Conveyancing firm was chosen before I stumbled across this site.

On the day of completion you will need to pick up the keys from the estate agent but this can only occur after the previous owners lawyers confirm to the agent that they have the completion monies and the keys can be released. You should tell the removal company that you are ready to move in. We are not in a position to recommend a particular removal organisation but can assist you in finding a conveyancing in Poynton or a firm with expertise in conveyancing in Poynton.

Yesterday I discovered that there is a flying freehold issue on a property I put an offer in a fortnight ago in what was supposed to be a simple, no chain conveyancing. Poynton is where the house is located. Can you shed any light on this issue?

Flying freeholds in Poynton are not the norm but are more likely to exist in relation to terraced houses. Even where you use a solicitor outside Poynton you would need to get your solicitor to go through the deeds diligently. Your lender may require your conveyancing solicitor to take out an indemnity policy. Some of the more diligent conveyancing solicitors in Poynton may ascertain that this is not enough and that the deeds be re-written to give you the most up to date legal protection. If so, the next door neighbour also had to sign up to the revised deeds.It is possible that your lender will not accept the situation so the sooner you find out the better. You should also check with your insurance broker as to whether they will insure a flying freehold property.
