In the event thatI was to purchase a freehold propertyin Stretton mortgage fee and dispense with a survey and no local authority searches how much would I expect to to save on my conveyancing in Stretton?
The only saving you would achieve is the Stretton conveyancing searches. A conveyancer still be obliged to do everything else - money laundering, correspond with the sellers conveyancing practitioner, SDLT return, register the property etc. You might save a bit for them not having to register a charge but it won't be a lot.
I have a decision in principle. The bank mentioned the mortgage came with free conveyancing. Does this mean I have to use their panel conveyancer as I would prefer to instruct a Stretton based conveyancing firm?
You should check but the chances are that give you one of their panel lawyers should you take up the "fee-free" incentive. Speak to the bank and ask if they allow a monetary alternative. In the past a few mortgage companies offered a £250 cashback as a further option in which case that money can go towards the cost for your conveyancing solicitor in Stretton.
It has been three months since my purchase conveyancing in Stretton completed. I have checked the Land Registry website which shows that I paid £175,000 when infact I paid £215,000. Why the discrepancy?
The price paid figure is taken from the application to register the purchase. It is the figure included in the Transfer (the legal deed which transfers the property from one person to the other) and referred to as the 'consideration' or purchase price. You can report an error in the price paid figure using the LR online form. In most cases errors result from typos so at first glance the figure. Do report it so they can double check and advise.
How does conveyancing in Stretton differ for new build properties?
Most buyers of new build or newly converted property in Stretton contact us having been asked by the housebuilder to sign contracts and commit to the purchase even before the residence is completed. This is because builders in Stretton tend to purchase the land, 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 used to new build conveyancing in Stretton or who has acted in the same development.
