Recently asked questions about conveyancing in St Columb

Why would I appoint a St Columb conveyancing practice given that internet based conveyancers are cheap by comparison?

Its a good idea to get 2 or 3 like-for-like quotes for conveyancing costs in St Columb and you should seek an affordable quote but don’t become consumed with hunting for the lowest priced St Columb conveyancer. Appointing the right conveyancer can mark the distinction between a smooth and a frustrating house move. You need to ensure that you have expert guidance from a trusted solicitor. An e-mail can never be as helpful as a telephone discussion and can never replicate a one to one consultation. The firms that we work with will allocate you a qualified and experienced conveyancing solicitor that will handle your conveyancing from beginning to end, giving the sort of hand holding that you are unlikely to received from an internet conveyancer. He or She will contact you regularly to update you as to any developments making sure that you are never in the dark. If you ever need to call the firm you will be sure who you need to speak to and they will endeavour to make sure that you are in the know.

My wife and I are soon to exchange buying a house in St Columb but as a result of wreckage from the recent storms I have managed to agree reparation from the vendor of £2k by way of a adjustment in the price. This was going to be addressed as part of the conveyancing process but Lloyds will not permit this. Should they have been notified?

Any conveyancing practitioner being on a Lloyds approved list is required to advise Lloyds of any amendments to the sale price. If you prohibit your property lawyer to disclose the reduction to Lloyds then they would have to discontinue acting for you. In addition, Lloyds and you would have to appoint a new lawyer for your conveyancing in St Columb.

What happens if my lawyer’s firm is expelled from the Virgin Money Solicitor panel ahead of completing my conveyancing in St Columb?

First, this is a very rare occurrence. In most cases even where a law firm is removed off of a panel the lender would allow the completion to go ahead as the lender would appreciate the difficulties that they would place you in if you have to instruct a new solicitor days before completion. In a worst case scenario where the lender insists that you instruct a new firm then it is possible for a very good lawyer to expedite the conveyancing albeit that you may pay a significant premium for this. The analogous situation is where a buyer instructs a lawyer, exchanges contracts and the law firm is shut down by a regulator such as the SRA. Again, in this situation you can find lawyers who can troubleshoot their way to bring the conveyancing to a satisfactory conclusion - albeit at a cost.

How does conveyancing in St Columb differ for newly converted properties?

Most buyers of new build or newly converted property in St Columb contact us having been asked by the builder to sign contracts and commit to the purchase even before the residence is finished. This is because new home sellers in St Columb typically 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 property lawyers 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 St Columb or who has acted in the same development.

My wife and I hope to acquire our first house in St Columb. Conveyancing practitioner has been selected. The broker advised that a survey is not necessary as the property was only constructed twenty two years ago.

You would be well advised to have a Home Buyer's Report. Given the premises is more than 10 years old the property will not benefit from a warranty, so you would be well advised not to take a risk. Where a property of this age shows no signs of defects a Home Buyer's report may be enough. They will highlight any apparent problems and suggest further investigation where relevant. If there are any indications of material issues obtain a comprehensive Building Survey from the beginning.
