Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Streetly

I went with a high street firm for my conveyancing in Streetly last week. Reviewing the Terms it is apparent thatwe are liable for fees even where the conveyance does not complete. Should I ditch them and use an on-line solicitor practice promising no move no charge conveyancing in Streetly?

It is usually a trade off in that if "No Sale No Fee" is advertised then the fee levels will tend to be be uplifted to neutralise the cases that fail to complete. Also remember that these deals rarely cover expenditure by way of example Streetly conveyancing search expenses.

If you had a top tip for selecting a conveyancing solicitor in Streetly what would it be?

It would be unwise to be swayed by the lowest Streetly conveyancing quote. You really do get what you’re paying for when it comes to property lawyers. A cheap quote may mean that the conveyancing solicitor is handling a lot of jobs at one time and you won’t get the quality of service and the attention that you need. It is, however, wise to use a conveyancer who has a fixed fee on a no sale, no fee basis. This way, you go into the conveyancing with your eyes wide open.

I happen to be the single beneficiary of my late grandmother’s will with all property in now in my sole name, including the my former home in Streetly. Conveyancing formalities meant that the Land Registry date was in October. I now wish to sell up. I understand that there is a Mortgage Lenders 6 month 'rule', meaning my proprietorship will be treated the same way as though I had purchased the house in October. Do I have to wait half a year to sell?

The Council of Mortgage Lenders’ handbook instructs conveyancers to: "report to us immediately if the owner or registered proprietor has been registered for less than six months." By the strict wording you could be caught by that. Most mortgage companies would take a pragmatic view as this provision chiefly exists to pick up on the purchase and immediately sell or the quick reselling of property.

After what feels like an age I have had an offer on a maisonette in Streetly agreed to, the owners do nevertheless have a dependent purchase. The vendors have put an offer on a flat, but it’s not yet agreed to, and are looking at other apartments booked. I have instructed a nearby conveyancing solicitor in Streetly. What do I do now? At what point should I apply for the mortgage with RBS?

It is usual to have concerns where there is a chain as you are unlikely to want to be too out of pocket prematurely (home loan application is approx £1k, then valuation, Streetly conveyancing search charges, etc). First, you must ensure that your solicitor is on the RBS conveyancing panel. As to the next steps this very much dictated by the specifics of your transaction, attraction to this property and on the state of the market. During a buoyant market the majority of purchasers would apply for a home loan with RBS and pay for the valuation and only if it was satisfactory would they pay their property lawyer to proceed with the conveyancing in Streetly.
