As a novice what is the most important advice you can impart about purchase conveyancing in Rudry?
Not many law firms shout this from the rooftops but conveyancing in Rudry or throughout England and Wales is often a confrontational process. In other words, when it comes to conveyancing there is an abundance of opportunity for friction between you and others involved in the house moving process. For instance, the vendor, estate agent and even potentially a lender. Selecting a lawyer for your conveyancing in Rudry is a critical decision as your conveyancer is your adviser, and is the SOLE party in the legal process whose responsibility is to protect your best interests and to protect you.
Sometimes a third party with a vested interest will try and persuade you that you should follow their advice. For instance, the property agent may claim to be helping by suggesting your lawyer is wrong. Or your financial adviser may try to convince you to do take action that is against your conveyancers advice. You should always trust your lawyer above all other parties in the home moving process.
How does conveyancing in Rudry differ for newly converted properties?
Most buyers of new build premises in Rudry contact us having been asked by the housebuilder to sign contracts and commit to the purchase even before the premises is built. This is because house builders in Rudry usually purchase the site, 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 conveyancers 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 accustomed to new build conveyancing in Rudry or who has acted in the same development.
Yesterday I discovered that there is a flying freehold element on a house I put an offer in two weeks back in what should have been a quick, chain free conveyancing. Rudry is where the house is located. What do you suggest?
Flying freeholds in Rudry are rare but are more likely to exist in relation to terraced houses. Even where you use a solicitor outside Rudry you must be sure that your lawyer goes through the deeds diligently. Your mortgage company may require your conveyancing solicitor to take out an indemnity policy. Some of the more diligent conveyancing solicitors in Rudry 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.
Do I need to be wary about 3rd parties that I am dealing with are encouraging me to use a web based conveyancing firm rather than a local Rudry conveyancing company?
As is the case with lots of service providers, often referrals from connections can be worth their weight in gold. Yet there are lots of players in a conveyancing transaction; estate agents, financial adviser and lenders may put forward conveyancers to retain. On occasion the solicitors might be known to one of the organisations as experts in their field, but occasionally there is an underlying commercial relationship behind the recommendation. You are at liberty to choose your own conveyancer. However, bear in mind that most lenders specify a panel list of law firms you must use for the mortgage aspect of your house move.
