Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Sawtry

Much to our surprise we have been informed by our estate agent that my Sawtry property lawyer is not on the lender Conveyancing panel. What can I do to be sure if this is correct?

The sensible course of action for you to take is to contact your Sawtry conveyancer. You lawyer should advise you of the situation. If they are not on the panel they could put your in touch with solicitors on the conveyancing panel for your bank.

I am intent on selling our house in Sawtry and the buyers lawyers are claiming that there is a risk of it being constructed on contaminated land. Any high street Sawtry lawyer would know this is not the case. For the life of me I don't know why the buyers are using a national conveyancing firm rather than a conveyancing solicitor in Sawtry. Having lived in Sawtry for six years we know that this is a non issue. Is it a good idea to get in touch with our local Authority to seek confirmation that there is no issue.

It would appear that you have a conveyancing solicitor currently acting for you. Are they able to advise? You must 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 illness)

I have todaydiscovered that Arc property Solicitors have been shut down. They carried out my conveyancing in Sawtry for a purchase of a leasehold apartment 10 months ago. How can I be sure that my home is in my name in the name of the former proprietor?

The easiest way to see if the premises is in your name, you can make a search of the land registry (£3.00). You can either do this yourself or ask a law firm to do this for you. If you are not registered you can seek help from one of a number of Sawtry conveyancing specialists.

How does conveyancing in Sawtry differ for new build properties?

Most buyers of new build residence in Sawtry approach us having been asked by the builder to exchange contracts and commit to the purchase even before the residence is built. This is because developers in Sawtry tend to buy 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 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 Sawtry or who has acted in the same development.

How straightforward is it to use your search tool to select a conveyancing solicitor in Sawtry on the approved list for my mortgage?
