My previous solicitor has sent a quote for just over a thousand pound for leasehold conveyancing in Sawtry. I’m selling a Georgian property for £275,000. Are these conveyancing fees excessive? Is it in excess of what I should be paying for conveyancing in Sawtry?
The estimate does seem a tad steep. If you shop around you may be able to get the conveyancing a bit cheaper by perhaps £100 plus VAT. On the other hand, you couldcome to rue choosing an a cheaper lawyer. Remember to enquire that the conveyancer can act for your lender. You can employ our search tool to select a Sawtry conveyancing company on the banks approved list of lawyers which can often include conveyancing solicitors in Sawtry.
Do lenders provide you with an approved list of Sawtry conveyancing solicitors? How do you know who is on the Nottingham conveyancing panel?
Sawtry conveyancing firms themselves provide us confirmation that they are on the Nottingham conveyancing panel as opposed to being supplied with a list from Nottingham directly.
We are purchasing a house in Sawtry. It might be a silly question but how we can trust a lawyer? On completion day we have to send money into their account. What protection do we have from them run away with our money?
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.
My husband and I have organised a further advance on our mortgage from Clydesdale as we intend to conduct improvements to our property in Sawtry. Do we need to select a local Sawtry solicitor on the Clydesdale conveyancing panel to handle the paperwork?
Clydesdale do not ordinarily require a member of their approved list of lawyers to handle the formalities. If they do require any legal work then you would need to ensure that such a lawyer was on the Clydesdale conveyancing panel.
I currently have a mortgage with Skipton for my property in Sawtry. Conveyancing was finalised months ago. In the event that I decide to rent out my property and do not currently have a buy-to-let mortgage do I need to remortgage to a BTL mortgage or inform Skipton?
You must advise Skipton in advance of letting out your property as this is likely to be a breach of Skipton’s mortgage conditions. In many cases banks or building societies will permit you to let out your former home without needing to switch to a buy-to-let mortgage but some lenders will add a surcharge to your mortgage rate to reflect the higher risk. You should contact Skipton directly. You need not do this via a Skipton conveyancing panel lawyer.
My partner and I are close to exchanging contracts on the sale of our house in Sawtry and the buyers lawyers are claiming that there is a risk of it being constructed on contaminated land. A local lawyer would know this is not the case. For the life of me I don't know why the buyers used an online conveyancing outfit as opposed to a conveyancing solicitor in Sawtry. Having lived in Sawtry for six years we know that this is a non issue. Do we get in touch with our local Authority to obtain clarification need.
It would appear that you have a conveyancing solicitor currently acting for you. What do they say? You need to check with 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)
