Just been in touch with my conveyancing lawyer in Wolverton who conducted the legals 18 months ago and wanted a conveyancing quote based on an identical type of home move (a leasehold residence and a freehold premises) of similar values with a home loan from Platform Home Loans Ltd. It looks as though am now being quoted double. Am I right to be tempted to shop around for an alternative property lawyer?
The estimate does seem a little overpriced. If you shop around you could shave off some of the expense by as much as £100 plus VAT. That being said, assuming were satisfied with the conveyancing the firm offered you mightlive to regret choosing an an unknown lawyer. If is important to check that the firm can also act for Platform Home Loans Ltd.

We are planning on selling our house in Wolverton and according to the buyers it appears that there is a risk of it being built land that was not decontaminated. Any high street Wolverton lawyer would know that there is no such problem. For the life of me I don't know why the purchasers are using a web based conveyancing practice as opposed to a conveyancing solicitor in Wolverton. We have lived in Wolverton for many years we know that this is a non issue. Do we get in touch with our local Authority to obtain confirmation need.
It would appear that you have a conveyancing firm already. Are they able to advise? You must check with 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 bought a terraced house in Wolverton , What is the estimated time for the Land Registry to register my ownership? My Wolverton conveyancing solicitor works at snail pace, so I want to be certain that my name is registered.
There is nothing unique about conveyancing in Wolverton registration formalities. As opposed to being determined by geographic area, timeframes can adjust depending on who lodges the application, whether it is in order and if the Land registry have to notify any interested parties. Currently roughly three quarters of such applications are fully dealt with in less than three weeks but some can be subject to protracted hold-ups. Registration takes place after the purchaser is living at the property thus an expedited registration is not always top priority but if it is urgent that the the registration takes place urgently then you or your solicitor must contact the land registry and explain the circumstances.
Taking into account that I am about to part with £400,000 on a house in Wolverton I wish to talk to a conveyancer concerning thehouse move ahead of instructing the firm. Is this something that you can arrange?
Absolutely - we would be happy to talk to you we do not take any clients on without you liaising with the lawyer who will be doing your conveyancing in Wolverton.There is no ‘factory style conveyancing’ - every client is unique individual, not a file number.

I today plan to offer on a house that seems to be perfect, at a great price which is making it all the more appealing. I have just discovered that the title is leasehold as opposed to freehold. I am assuming that there are issues purchasing a house with a leasehold title in Wolverton. Conveyancing lawyers have not yet been instructed. Will my lawyers set out the implications of buying a leasehold house in Wolverton ?
The majority of houses in Wolverton are freehold and not leasehold. In this scenario it’s worth having a local conveyancer who is familiar with the area who can help the conveyancing process. it is apparent that you are purchasing in Wolverton in which case you should be shopping around for a Wolverton conveyancing solicitor and check that they have experience in dealing with leasehold houses. First you will need to check the number of years remaining. Being a lessee you will not be entirely free to do whatever you want to the property. The lease will likely included provisions such as requiring the freeholder’spermission to carry out changes to the property. You may also be required to pay a service charge towards the maintenance of the communal areas where the property is part of an estate. Your lawyer should report to you on the legal implications.
