Why would I instruct a Wolverhampton conveyancing practice when national conveyancers are easier on the wallet?
Its a good idea to shop around for conveyancing costs in Wolverhampton and you should seek a competitive estimate but don’t be focused with getting the lowest priced Wolverhampton conveyancer. Locating the right conveyancer can be the distinction between a seamless and a distressing move. You need to ensure that you have expert advice from a trusted lawyer. Emails can't be as helpful as a telephone call and are no substitute for a one to one meeting. The firms that we work with will appoint you a qualified and experienced conveyancing solicitor who can deal with your conveyancing from beginning to end, giving the sort of continuity that you are unlikely to received from an online conveyancer. He or She will update you as to any developments and keep you informed. Should it ever be necessary to call the firm you will know who you need to speak to and we'll be sure you are kept fully informed.
It is a dozen years since I acquired my home in Wolverhampton. Conveyancing solicitors have just been appointed on the sale but I can't find my deeds. Will this cause complications?
You need not be too concerned. First the deeds may be retained by your mortgage company or they may be in the possession of the lawyers who oversaw the purchase. Secondly the likelihood is that the property will be registered at the land registry and you will be able to establish that you own the property by your conveyancing solicitors acquiring current official copies of the land registers. Most conveyancing in Wolverhampton relates to registered property but in the rare situation where your home is unregistered it adds to the complexity but is resolvable.

We are planning on selling our property in Wolverhampton and according to the buyers it appears that there is a risk of it being built land that was not decontaminated. A high street Wolverhampton conveyancer would know that there is no such problem. It does beg the question why the buyers are using an online conveyancing firm rather than a conveyancing solicitor in Wolverhampton. We have lived in Wolverhampton for three years we know that this is a non issue. Is it a good idea to get in touch with our local Authority to seek clarification that there is no issue.
It would appear that you have a conveyancing firm already. Are they able to advise? You should 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 health insurance to cover that same sickness)
Just had an offer accepted on a new build flat in Wolverhampton. Conveyancing is a frightening process at the best of times but I have never purchased a new build flat before. What sort of enquires would be asked in new build conveyancing.

Where there is an Undertaking being granted there is the risk of forfeiture of the Headlease subject to relief if one or more of the Underlessees are willing to accept the original Head Lessee’s obligations as otherwise relief will be denied to the Underlessees. The only alternatives are the Head Lessor agreeing not to forfeit the Headlease or the Head Lessee guaranteeing to the Underlessees that it will not be in breach of the Headlease. If there are lifts in the building, please confirm that the owners of flats on the ground and basement floors will not be required to contribute towards the cost of maintenance and renewal. Will the freehold then be transferred for a nominal consideration (not exceeding £100) to the Management Company? Please confirm the Lease plans are architect prepared. Where service of notices and proceedings can be at the property demised please confirm that this can be amended to include simultaneous services at the Lessees’ solicitors’ offices where the Lessee from time to time is not resident in the UK - such solicitors may be varied by notice in writing to the Landlord from time to time but otherwise will be as previously specified.
