My wife and I are close to exchanging contracts on the sale of our property in Turvey and the buyers lawyers are claiming that there is a risk of it being constructed land that was not decontaminated. Any local lawyer would know that there is no such problem. It does beg the question why the buyers are using a national conveyancing outfit rather than a conveyancing solicitor in Turvey. We have lived in Turvey for six years we know that this is a non issue. Should we get in touch with our local Authority to obtain clarification that the buyers are looking for.
It sounds as though you may have a conveyancing firm already. Are they able to advise? You must enquire of your lawyer before you do anything. It is very possible that once the local authority has been informed of a potential issue it cannot be insured against (a bit like being diagnosed with a serious illness and then taking out health insurance to cover that same sickness)
I used Arc property Solicitors several years ago for my conveyancing in Turvey. Now, I need the files but the law firm has closed. What do I do?
Do contact the Solicitors Regulatory Authority (SRA) to assist in tracking down your conveyancing files. They can be contacted on please contact on 0870 606 2555. Alternatively, you should use their online form to make an enquiry. You will need to provide the SRA with as much information as possible to assist their search, including the name and address in Turvey of the conveyancing firm of solicitors you previously used, the name of conveyancing solicitor with whom you had dealings, and the date on which you last had dealings with the firm.
Over the last few months I have been searching for a ground for flat up to £245,000 and identified one close by in Turvey I like with a park and railway links nearby, the downside is that it's only got 61 remaining years left on the lease. There is not much else in Turvey in this price bracket, so just wondered if I would be making a mistake buying a lease with such few years left?
If you require a mortgage the remaining unexpired lease term may be problematic. Discount the offer by the anticipated lease extension will cost if it has not already been discounted. If the current owner has owned the property for at least twenty four months you may request that they start the process of the extension and then assign it to you. You can add 90 years to the existing lease and have £0 ground rent by law. You should speak to your conveyancing lawyer about this matter.
I have been pointed in your direction by a number of selling agents in Turvey to locate a conveyancer using your seach tool. What’s the financial upside for Estate Agents to recommend your site over alternative conveyancing organisations?
We refuse to make any commission for directing people in our direction. We found it would be just too difficult to pay a commission as members of the public would think, ‘Why is the agent getting a kickback? Why aren’t I getting any benefit too?’ So we decided to step away from that.
I am using a search engine for the phrase cheap conveyancing in Turvey it reveals many property lawyersin the vicinity. How do I determine which is the right property lawyer for me?
The best way of seeking the right conveyancer is via trusted testimonial, so ask friends and relatives who have purchased a property in Turvey or the local estate agent or financial adviser. Fees for conveyancing in Turvey differ, so it's advisable to request a minimum of three fee calculations from different law firms. Dont forget to clarify that the charges are assured not to rise.
