My best friend’s dad is a property lawyer. I am hopeful that I will receive mate’s fee for conveyancing, but if not, what level of figure should I be paying for conveyancing in Rumney?
You should contrast pricing. Do use our comparison tool on this site. Whilst quotes may contrast greatly but the service one can expect are distinct between law firms as is true with the vast majority of professional services.
Can your site be used to locate a Conveyancing solicitor in Rumney even where I’m not buying or selling a house, for instance if I wish to acquire a shop in Rumney with a mortgage from Santander?
The service is predominantly there to help choose residential conveyancing solicitors in Rumney but we have listed towards the bottom of this page some Rumney commercial conveyancing firms. You should make contact with the solicitors directly to establish if they can also act for Santander
I am told that my conveyancing solicitors will need to check that the building insurance when buying a house in Rumney. My lender is Chelsea Building Society
Chelsea Building Society have specific requirements as set out in the UK Finance Lenders’ Handbook. As of 7/5/2021, the requirements read as follows :
We are selling our property in Rumney and according to the buyers it appears that there is a risk of it being built land that was not decontaminated. Any high street Rumney conveyancer would know this is not the case. It does beg the question why the purchasers instructed a nationwide conveyancing firm as opposed to a conveyancing solicitor in Rumney. Having lived in Rumney for three years we know of no issue. Is it a good idea to contact our local Authority to get clarification that the buyers are looking for.
It would appear that you have a conveyancing lawyer already. Are they able to advise? You need to 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 ailment)
Due to the guidance of my in-laws I had a survey completed on a property in Rumney before retaining lawyers. I have been informed that there is a flying freehold element to the property. The surveyor has said that some mortgage companies tend not issue a mortgage on such a house.
It varies from the lender to lender. Bank of Scotland has different instructions for example to Birmingham Midshires. If you e-mail us we can check with the relevant mortgage company. If you lender is happy to lend one our lawyers can help as they are used to dealing with flying freeholds in Rumney. Conveyancing may be slightly more expensive based on your lender's requirements.
