We instructed a high street lawyer for our conveyancing in Streetly today. Reviewing the Ts and Cs it is apparent thatI am liable for charges even if our purchase doesn't happen. Would I be best advised to use a web based conveyancing brokerage promising no completion no charge conveyancing in Streetly?
Generally there is a concession along the lines that if "No Sale No Fee" is offered then the conveyancing charges will generally be uplifted to counteract those transactions that do not proceed. Please beware that such offerings generally do not protect you from disbursements for example Streetly conveyancing search costs.
Are the BSA intent on creating a search tool with a view to list law firms on the Earl Shilton BS conveyancing panel for instance in Streetly?
We would not expect to be advised of any plans on the part of the BSA to develop such a register.
What will a local search tell me about the property we're buying in Streetly?
Streetly conveyancing often starts with the applying for local authority searches directly from your local Authority or through a personal search company for example PSG The local search is essential in every Streetly conveyancing purchase; that is if you don’t want any nasty once you have moved into your property. The search will provide information on, amongst other things, details on planning applications relevant to the premises (whether granted or refused), building control history, any enforcement action, restrictions on permitted development, nearby road schemes, contaminated land and radon gas; in all a total of thirteen subject areas.
I have a semi-detached Victorian property in Streetly. Conveyancing solicitor represented me and Clydesdale. I happened to do a free search for it on the Land Registry database and there are a couple of entries: one for freehold, another for leasehold with the exact same property. Is it worth asking Clydesdale to clarify?
You should read the Freehold register you have again and check the Charges Register for mention of a lease. The best way to be sure that you are also the registered owner of the leasehold and freehold title as well is to check (£3). It is not completely unheard of in Streetly and other areas of the country and poses no real issues for owners other than when they buy they have to account for both freehold and leasehold interests when dealing with purchasers. You can also check the situation with your conveyancing practitioner who conducted the conveyancing.

Will control of the Management Company (if any) be handed over to purchasers on completion of the last sale or earlier? Where service of notices and proceedings can be at the property demised please confirm that this can be amended to include simultaneous services at the Lessees’ solicitors’ offices where the Lessee from time to time is not resident in the UK - such solicitors may be varied by notice in writing to the Landlord from time to time but otherwise will be as previously specified. Investor purchasers must be able to freely grant unsecured tenancies at market rents without requiring any consents. Will the freehold then be transferred for a nominal consideration (not exceeding £100) to the Management Company? Please confirm the Lease plans are surveyor prepared.
