I require conveyancing for an apartment in a fairly new development (five years old) in Shipley. The vast majority the properties are already sold. Do I need carry out the conveyancing searches for my conveyancing in Shipley?
You are opening yourself up to an unnecessary risk in failing carrying out Shipley conveyancing searches. Without searches you have no clarity over flooding, environmental etc which may mean you walk away due to potential problems down the line. If you are buying without a mortgage there is no legal necessity to have them, but we would seriously advise in the strongest possible terms that you have them. Where speed and driving down costs are top of your concerns you should discuss with your conveyancer about the options such as lack of search insurance available to you
As a FTB what is the most important piece of guidance you can give me concerning purchase conveyancing in Shipley?
Not many law firms or advisers will tell you this but conveyancing in Shipley and elsewhere in England and Wales is an adversarial experience. In other words, when it comes to conveyancing there exists plenty of room for confrontation between you and other parties involved in the legal transfer of property. E.g., the vendor, selling agent and sometimes a mortgage company. Appointing a solicitor for your conveyancing in Shipley should not be taken lightly as your conveyancer is your adviser, and is the ONLY person in the process whose role it is to look after your legal interests and to keep you safe.
There is a distinct creep of a "blame" culture- someone has to be blamed for the process taking so long. We recommend that you should always trust your solicitor ahead of all other parties when it comes to the legal assignment of property.

Forgive me if this question is silly but I am unexperienced as a 1st time purchaser of a ground floor flat in Shipley. Do I pick up the keys to the house on the completion date from my lawyer? If this is the case, I will appoint a High Street conveyancing solicitor in Shipley?
There is no need to visit the lawyers office on the day of completion. Conveyancing lawyers for you will transfer the purchase money to the vendor’s lawyers, and once they have received this, you should be invited to receive the keys from the Estate Agents and move into your new home. Usually this occurs early afternoon.
How can we know in advance if a Shipley conveyancing solicitor on the Leeds Building Society panel is any good?
When it comes to conveyancing in Shipley obtaining recommendations is a sensible starting point. Before you go ahead, check if they offer a no sale no fee offer. Also, you often get what you pay for - a firm which quotes more, will often provide a better service than one which is cheap as chips. We would always advocate that you speak with the lawyer carrying out your conveyancing.
My wife and I have organised a further advance on our home loan from TSB as we wish to conduct renovations to our home in Shipley. Do we need to choose a bricks and mortar Shipley solicitor on the TSB conveyancing panel to handle the paperwork?
TSB don't usually instruct a member of their approved list of lawyers to deal with such a matter. If they do require any legal work then you would need to ensure that such a lawyer was on the TSB conveyancing panel.
I've recently found out that there is a flying freehold issue on a house I have offered on a fortnight ago in what should have been a simple, chain free conveyancing. Shipley is the location of the property. Can you shed any light on this issue?
Flying freeholds in Shipley are not the norm but are more likely to exist in relation to terraced houses. Even though you don't necessarily need a conveyancing solicitor in Shipley 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 Shipley 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 residence.
