Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Winkleigh

I have given 2 months notice to my existing landlord and have to be out of my let out flat in Winkleigh by 17/7/2024. Conveyancing on my purchase is underway. Can I complete in three weeks as don't want to have to move into temporary accommodation?

It is unwise to provide notice for your letting until your lawyer suggests that you should. If you have not already done so, notify to your conveyancer and request that they chase the owners solicitors, try to a target completion date that all parties will aim towards

In what way does my ID and proof of funds have anything to do with my conveyancing in Winkleigh? What am I being asked for?

Anti-terror and anti-money-laundering laws require solicitors and licensed conveyancers to verify the identity of the person or body they are dealing with prior to agreeing to accepting their conveyancing business. The Client Care letter that you are required to sign will no doubt confirm this. Your lender will also require certain documents to be checked. Where you are unwilling to supply identification documents, your lawyer can not take you on as a client.

We are expecting a mortgage offer soon. The lender mentioned the mortgage came with free conveyancing. Is the implication that I have to appoint their panel conveyancer as I would much rather instruct a Winkleigh based conveyancing firm?

Do check but the chances are that allocate you one of their panel solicitors if you want the "fee-free" incentive. Contact the mortgage company to see if they make available a cash alternative. It is not unheard for a lender to give a £250 cashback as an alternative in which case that money can go towards the cost for your conveyancing solicitor in Winkleigh.

I have been pointed in your direction by three or four local property agents in Winkleigh to locate a conveyancer using your seach tool. What’s the financial incentive for Estate Agents to recommend your lawyers ahead of a competitor’s?

We don’t offer any referral fee for pointing buyers and sellers our way. We found it would be just too difficult to pay a commission because a client could think, ‘Why is the agent getting a kickback? Why am I not getting any benefit too?’ We would prefer to grow our business on genuine recommendations.

The lawyers conducting our conveyancing in Winkleigh has forwarded papers to review that reveal that the property is unregistered with epitome documents. Why is the property not registred at HM Land Regsitry?

Although most properties in Winkleigh are now registered with the Land Registry there are still a few that are unregistered. Any property in Winkleigh that has been purchased since the late 1980’s will have been registered at the HM Land Registry under the compulsory ‘first registration’ scheme. However, if a Winkleigh property has not changed hands in that time then it’s likely the old fashioned title deeds will be the only evidence of ownership.Plenty of Winkleigh conveyancing solicitors should be able to handle such matters but if any uncertainty exists the usual guidance these days seems to be for the seller to undertake the registration formalities first and then sell - this will have a domino effect to cause a significant delay.
