Me and my fiancee are purchasing our first house. The conveyancer has texted usto enquire if we wish to take out extra conveyancing searches. As novices we have no idea as to what's necessary for conveyancing in Wakefield
The extent of Wakefield conveyancing searches should be triggered based entirely on the premises, the location, the likelihood of any of these risks, your familiarity of the region and risks, your overall approach to risk. What is important is that you adequately understand what information the searches could give you. Then you can make a decision if you consider that you need that information. Should you be in doubt, ask the lawyer to guide you.
I am selling my flat in Wakefield. Will my property lawyer have to be required to be on the TSB conveyancing panel in order to deal with repayment of my mortgage?
Ordinarily, even if your lawyer is not on the TSB conveyancing panel they can still act for you on your sale. It might be that the lender will not release the original deeds (if applicable and increasingly irrelevant) until after the mortgage is paid off. You should speak to your lawyer directly before you start the process though to ensure that there is no problem as lenders are changing their panel criteria fairly frequently at the moment.
My partner and I are intent on selling our house in Wakefield and according to the buyers it appears that there is a risk of it being built on contaminated land. Any high street Wakefield lawyer would know this is not the case. For the life of me I don't know why the purchasers used a web based conveyancing firm as opposed to a conveyancing solicitor in Wakefield. Having lived in Wakefield for three years we know that this is a non issue. Do we contact our local Authority to seek clarification that the buyers are looking for.
It would appear that you have a conveyancing solicitor currently acting for you. What do they say? You need to 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 life insurance to cover that same ailment)
In what way can the Landlord & Tenant Act 1954 affect my business premises in Wakefield and how can you help?
The 1954 Act gives a safeguard to commercial lessees, giving them the right to make a request to court for a renewal lease and remain in occupation when the lease comes to an end. There are limited grounds where a landlord can refuse a lease renewal and the rules are involved. Fees are different for commercial conveyancing. Wakefield is one of the many locations in which our lawyers are based
