Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Wiltshire

Having been referred to your site we were going to appoint conveyancing solicitor in Wiltshire recommended by you but stumbled across alternative costs illustrations on the internet seem less expensive – how come?

One can find many firms of solicitors promoting pretending to offer £99 conveyancing, unfortunately it’s common in such cases for extracharges end up with the final fee markedly uplifted. In accordance with regulatory requirements charges contained in terms of engagement should be equitable invoiced The law firms that we put forward for conveyancing in Wiltshire specify all charges for a residential conveyancing matter.

We are buying our first home. Our conveyancing practitioner has contact usto enquire if we want to take out supplemental conveyancing searches. Frankly we are clueless as to what's recommended for conveyancing in Wiltshire

The type of Wiltshire conveyancing searches depends entirely on the property, the location, the probability of any of these risks, your knowledge of the region and risks, your overall attitude to risk. What matters is that you adequately understand what information the searches could supply. Then you can decide if you personally think you need that search. Where you are unclear, ask your conveyancer to advise.

I am planning to move house in April. Will my conveyancing solicitor liaise with the removal company on the completion day. As an aside, can you put forward a removal company in Wiltshire. Conveyancing lawyer was found before I stumbled across this website.

On the afternoon of completion you can collect the house keys from your selling agent however this can only take place once the previous owners solicitors advise the agent that they have the completion monies and the keys can be collected. You can tell the removal men that you are ready to move in. As a matter of policy we do not recommend a particular removal organisation but can assist you in choosing a residential property solicitor in Wiltshire or a solicitor that specialises in conveyancing in Wiltshire.

We were going to get a OIP from Bank of Ireland this week so we know how much we could potentially offer as otherwise we are dependent on web based calculators (which aren't taking into account credit checks etc). Do Bank of Ireland recommend any Wiltshire solicitors on the Bank of Ireland conveyancing panel, or is it better to find our own lawyer?

You will need to appoint Wiltshire solicitors independently although you'll need to choose one on the Bank of Ireland conveyancing panel. The solicitor represents both you and Bank of Ireland through the process.

I have a mortgage with Principality for my property in Wiltshire. Conveyancing was finalised a year ago. In the event that I decide to rent out the flat and do not currently have a buy-to-let mortgage do I need to remortgage to a BTL mortgage or inform Principality?

Your original mortgage agreement with Principality will provide that you need their approval in advance of letting out your property as this is likely to be a breach of Principality’s mortgage conditions. In many cases banks or building societies will permit you to let out your former home without needing to switch to a buy-to-let mortgage but some lenders will add a surcharge to your mortgage rate to reflect the higher risk. You should contact Principality directly. You need not do this via a Principality conveyancing panel lawyer.

I've recently found out that there is a flying freehold element on a property I put an offer in a fortnight ago in what should have been a straight forward, chain free conveyancing. Wiltshire is where the house is located. What do you suggest?

Flying freeholds in Wiltshire are rare but are more likely to exist in relation to terraced houses. Even though you don't necessarily need a conveyancing solicitor in Wiltshire you would need to get your solicitor to go through the deeds thoroughly. Your bank may require your conveyancing solicitor to take out an indemnity policy. Some of the more diligent conveyancing solicitors in Wiltshire may determine that this is not enough and that the deeds be re-written to give you the most up to date legal protection. If so, the next door neighbour also had to sign up to the revised deeds.It is possible that your lender will not accept the situation so the sooner you find out the better. You should also check with your insurance broker as to whether they will insure a flying freehold property.
