You may not hear this from too many lawyers but conveyancing in Winton and elsewhere in England and Wales is often a confrontational process. Put another way, when it comes to conveyancing there is lots of opportunity for friction between you and others involved in the ownership transfer. E.g., the vendor, estate agent and on occasion the bank. Appointing a solicitor for your conveyancing in Winton should not be taken lightly as your conveyancer is your adviser, and is the ONLY party in the legal process whose role it is to protect your best interests and to keep you safe.

Every so often a third party with a vested interest may try and convince you that it is in your interests to do things their way. For instance, the property agent may claim to be helping by claiming that your lawyer is dragging his heels. Or your financial adviser may tell you to do take action that is contrary to your lawyers recommendation. You should always trust your lawyer above all other parties when it comes to the legal transfer of property.

  • If you are supposed to have a share in the freehold, you should make sure that you have the original share document. Obtaining a replacement share certificate is often a lengthy formality and delays many a Winton conveyancing transaction. Where a new share is necessary, you should approach the company director and secretary or managing agents (where applicable) for this at the earliest opportunity. If you have carried out any alterations to the residence would they have required Landlord’s consent? Have you, for example laid down wooden flooring? Winton leases often stipulate that internal structural alterations or addition of wooden flooring calls for a licence from the Landlord consenting to such changes. If you dont have the paperwork in place you should not contact the landlord without contacting your conveyancer in advance. If you have had conflict with your freeholder or managing agents it is very important that these are resolved prior to the flat being put on the market. The purchasers and their solicitors will be reluctant to purchase a property where a dispute is ongoing. You will have to accept that you will have to pay any arrears of service charge or settle the dispute prior to the buyers completing the purchase. It is therefore preferable to have any dispute settled ahead of the contract papers being issued to the buyers’ solicitors. You will still have to reveal details of the dispute to the buyers, but it is better to present the dispute as historic as opposed to ongoing.
