Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Wadhurst

We have rather assertive vendors who has suggested a exclusivity contract with a non-refundable deposit 6,000. Are such arrangements recommended for Wadhurst conveyancing transactions?

There are a couple of primary drawbacks with executing a lock out agreement (sometimes termed a shut-out contract) is that it diverts attention away from moving forward with the conveyancing work, so unless it requires little or no negotiation then it may turn out to be unhelpful. It is not particularly popular amongst Wadhurst conveyancing practitioners for this reason. A further negative is the extent of the remedies available - an aggrieved purchaser should not expect to obtain an injunction to bar the seller disposing of the property to another buyer, so the only remedy open via the agreement will be the recovery of wasted charges and, in limited circumstances, the additional payment of penalties.

We are hoping to buy a 2 bedroom flat in Wadhurst with a mortgage from Birmingham Midshires.We like our Wadhurst conveyancing solicitor but Birmingham Midshires informed us his firm is not on their "panel". We have to appoint a Birmingham Midshires panel firm or keep our preferred solicitor and pay for one of their panel ones to act for them. We feel as though this is unjust; Can we not simply insist that Birmingham Midshires use our lawyer?

Unfortunately,no. The loan issued to you is subject to its various provisions, a common one being that solicitors must be on the Birmingham Midshires solicitor panel. Until recently, most mortgage companies had large numbers of law firms on their panels: a borrower could choose one for themselves, as long as it was on the lender's panel. The lender would then simply instruct the borrower's lawyers to act for the lender, too. You can use your lender's panel lawyers or you could borrow from another lender which does not restrict your choice. Another option that might be available is for your solicitors to apply to be on the conveyancing panel for Birmingham Midshires

Wadhurst Conveyancing for Leasehold Flats - Examples of Questions you should ask Prior to buying

    Its a good idea to find out as much as possible about the managing agents as they will either make your living at the property much simpler or a lot more difficult. Being a leasehold owner you are often in the clutches of the managing agents from a financial perspective and when it comes to practical matters like the cleanliness of the communal areas. Enquire of prospective neighbours whether they are happy with their management. Finally, investigate as to the dates that the service fees are due to the relevant party and precisely how they are spending the funds. Who takes charge for maintaining and repairing the block? The prefered form of lease structure is where the freehold reversion is in the ownership of the leaseholders. In this arrangement the lessees benefit from being in charge if their destiny and notwithstanding that a managing agent is often employed if it is larger than a house conversion, the managing agent acts for the leaseholders themselves.
